Bottom Line LCD fish locator display ??

4 posts in this topic

Recently purchased a used boat with a 360 Bottom Line Tournement LCD. Was hoping it would display fish as a sonar arch but it seems it displays a fish symbol instead. Does anyone know if this unit can be changed or modified to display a sonar arch rather than a fish symbol? I love the unit, many more funtions than I will ever use. Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.

Yes, you should be able to show either defining feature. Just play a bit with it using the main menu and scrolling down as viking605 says...it is in there.

One point of concern for you also....

BE certain to NOT allow the cable-connectors on the rear of the unit to turn while you connect the cables to it while removing/installing the unit!!

I had a Tournament Master SF3 unit that burned-out... I am thinking was due to the plastic nuts that retain the partially threaded "male" end connectors, loosened. Thus allowing the "male" connector to turn inside the unit, and also allowing the wiring inside to wrap-around inside. Causing a electrical-short. NOT GOOD! This unit was a 1998 vintage.

I am waiting for my new Tournament 4300 from Bottom Line now. They DO stand-by their product tho at Bottom Line.

I got this NEW 4300 unit for exchange of my old & "burned-out" SF3 unit and $150.

So, I am ok with that grin.gif

Good Luck with your Bottom Line unit Murdock! (I believe..if you look hard enough in the unit, you may also find a electronic game to play in there(?)

I had the same problem with my BottomLine unit, the nut turned and the contacts broke. Too sloppy a connection into the housing.

They vibrate loose WAY too easy! The second time it happened, I superglued the dam thing so it would not spin. If it mess's up again, it will hit the trash can, or a 5 pound sledge will hit it. I will not send it in again.

That's ANOTHER big reason I went to Vexilar, quality of product and they stand by their stuff, no YADA-YADA-YADA what if's, they just fix it, done deal....all better now...Go fish.

My tip for you is look at the new Vexilar color graph or the EDGE-2, both are top units and will hold up. If and when you ever do need service, they will be on your side..no talk. It will be fixed right the first time, and if it is in any way there quality that was an issue.......no charge.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
