I have just moved my depth sounder and extended the coaxial cable by 7 meters. The reading is way out (shoould read circa 4 metres and is reading 50 to 100 !) Is there something about selecting the right coaxial for depth sounders that I should know ? Does length matter !!??

Coax and coax length certainly matters, but a question first: Did you recalibrate your instrument after the move?

Hi and thanks for the reply - no I did not re-calibrate and I can't find any way to do this in the manual (yes, I have a DS45 manual). I can set keel offset and that's all.
