interferance

Recommended Posts

the flasher on my bow mount works fine when not under power. When the troller is running I get interferance. Never had the problem untill I put in another lcx 15 mt on the back. Could it be the problem or is there some other wiring problem to look for. thanks

It sounds like it could be the problem; what frequency is your other depth finder running at, or, what model & brand is it?

Also, where do you get power for your depth finder in the bow? If it's from the trolling motor batteries I'd try running it off a vexilar battery - if that takes care of your problems you should hook it up to your starting battery.

try twisting you power wires. I am a ham radio operator and I know i have heard to twist your power wires that way you reduce power noise on you radio. it could also work for a graph too. just something to try.

heres more information. It does it with none of the back finders running. With everthing off but the front locator and trolling motor. finder workes great until I turn the motor on.

as noted above you could try twisting the power and ground wires together to limit the amount of RF that is being produced. You could also buy a filter for the wire to keep the noise out. Several options, are out there,

Or you could rewire your locator to get power from your starting battery and not the trolling motor battery. That should take care of it as well.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
