Re: depth sounder problem
I assume you've traced the wires and checked the connections. It could be that it is getting confused by turbulence, or turbidity, but it might just be shot.
I had a older transducer give up the ghost recently. Same kind of symptoms. Would work, then not, flash meaningless data, then nada. A reset would sometimes get it back on track for a while, but would drift off again. Turbulence seemed to make it worse, but in the end I had to replaced the unit.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
