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.
Please remember to practice CPR.

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.

    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!
