General Installation of a Depth Finder:
Connect the power directly to the starting battery do not splice into an
existing power source. Going straight to the main battery avoids noise
pick-up from other equipment on the boat. Make sure you have a small inline
fuse installed. Fuses are cheap compared to the price of a depth finder.
Try to isolate your power and transducer cords away from other electric
wires such as the power leads to the electric trolling motors. This can be
frustrating but try and organize the mess of wires to the best of your
ability, you will be happy you did in the end.
Mount the depth finder in an easy to see location. If using a fixed mount, try using just
one screw, in the middle of the mounting bracket.
This will allow you to swivel it back and forth while you are fishing the
first time until
you find the angle that works best. Make sure you have plenty of clearance
around it before permanently fixing the location.
