I would double check my installation for air bubbles. Be sure that you have sited the transducer in an appropriate place. Also you should calibrate your depth sounder. I did so with a steel tape mesure in my slip. Make sure you have the keel offset set properly. With that said my opinion of depth sounders in general is that they are only usefull for confirmimng the fact that you are aground.
