Depth sounders

While we're on the topic of electronics, how reliable do you find your depth sounders. I have a Simrad IS-15 unit and it has a nasty habit of cutting out just when I need it most--in shallow water. Its kind of hard to figure for sure when it is going to lose the bottom, but shallow, turbid water and a soft bottom seem to be contributing factors. Am I just asking for too much?
