Eagle Cuda 300 Question

3 posts in this topic

Ok I have a Cuda 300 fish finder. It is fairly new. My problem with it is, when I turn it on it goes straight to the simulation screen. Now it is supposed to save all prior input and not do this. Plus it reads 755 feet in 3 feet of water(actually it reads huge depths all the time). We had gotten one prior to this and it did the same thing. This new one worked for a while, and now all the sudden just started this. It also will not show bottom. Could this be a wiring problem? Could it be a transducer problem? We have tried the master reset with no success. Does anyone have any idea how to fix or what to try?

Sounds to me like the problem is with the unit itself, since it goes to sim mode every time you power it up. I wouldn't mess with the wiring or transducer until you get that part of the problem taken care of.

That is just the thing. I have done everything I know how to do, to get this to work. I was also thinking it could just be the unit, because the first one we got did the same thing. Any suggestions on where to start with the unit? Like I said we have used the master reset a couple times. Or could this just be a bad line of fish finders?

    • I'm awesome at catching fish in the US. I leave Canada to those who are not so awesome at fishing.
    • I was at the fishing show & had talked with the Aqua Vu staff.  Their new HD cameras look amazing!  I thought the pictures on the AV760 was great, but these are super sharp. They also stated that you can view them clearly in the direct sun light.
    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
