NOTE: The suction cup mount is designed for quick, easy installation and removal, NOT for high speed operation. If you

 

 

intend to operate your boat at any speed faster than trolling speeds, remove the suction cup transducer from the water.

 

Assembling the Plastic Bracket

 

 

NOTE: Humminbird® portable transducers use either a metal or plastic bracket. The type of transducer that came with

your Humminbird® unit will determine which bracket to use. Refer to the illustration that corresponds with your

transducer and bracket type.

It is important that the mounting position allows the transducer to rest beneath the surface of the water, pointing

straight down. You can mount the transducer anywhere on the side of the boat if your boat remains stationary. If you

 

are trolling, it is best to mount the transducer on the transom of the boat.

3. Mounting the Transducer

Your portable transducer is designed to be installed and adjusted without the use of tools. Mounting the transducer to the boat is a simple, yet important operation. A poor mounting location will affect the overall performance of the Humminbird unit, so follow the mounting instructions carefully.

It is important that the mounting position allows the transducer to rest beneath the surface of the water, pointing straight down.

You can mount the transducer anywhere on the side of the boat if your boat remains stationary.

If you are trolling, it is best to mount the transducer on the transom of the boat.

1.Mount the transducer so that it points straight down, and so that the transducer itself is submerged in the water.

2.Adjust the running angle so that the transducer is parallel to and below the surface of the water.

3.Hand-tightenthe wing nut so that the transducer will not rotate.

4.Secure the transducer cable in case of accidental release when the boat is moving, since a loose transducer can cause damage to itself, your boat, or become tangled in the propeller. Attach the tie-downstrap to the transducer cable around an immovable object such as a rail or fitting, as shown in the illlustration.

5.When you have finished using the transducer, pivot the transducer body flat against the bracket and coil the cable around the assembly.

4. Connecting the Cable

Insert the transducer cable into the appropriate terminal slot. The cable connectors are labeled, and there are corresponding labels on the cable holder on the rear of the control head. The slots are keyed to prevent reversed installation, so be careful not to force the connector into the holder.

Refer to your manual and/or control head installation guide for the correct procedure for installing the cable connectors to the control head.

1. Plug the other end of the transducer cable back into the control head connection holder.

Maintenance

If your boat remains in the water for long periods of time, algae and other marine growth can reduce the effectiveness of the transducer. Periodically clean the face of the transducer with hot water. Pivoting the transducer up in the bracket may allow better access for inspection or cleaning.

If your boat remains out of the water for a long period of time, it may take some time to wet the transducer after it is returned to the water. Small air bubbles can cling to the surface of the transducer and interfere with proper operation. These bubbles will dissipate with time, or you may wipe the face of the transducer with your fingers after the transducer is in the water.

All repair work is performed by factory-trainedtechnicians to meet exacting factory specifications.Factory-servicedunits go through the same rigorous testing and quality control inspections as new production units.

After the original warranty period, a standard flat rate service charge will be assessed for each repair (physical damage and missing parts are not included). Any repairs made after the original warranty will be warranted for an additional 90 days after service has been performed by our factory technicians. You can contact our Customer Resource Center or visit our website to verify the flat rate repair fee for your product (visit the Product Support section):
