Garmin 160

3 posts in this topic

I recently purchased, and installed a new Garmin 160 depth/fishfinder unit, and am having a problem with duplicate readings. Set in auto mode and with gain either normal or reduced, I will get an exact same reading at double the correct depth. (ie. showing 8 ft. bottom in 20 ft. scale, I will have the same line showing at 16 ft.) I have checked and re-checked the transducer mount for level, and placement in the water. This occurs both moving or stationary, and there are no other electronics on board. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to what may be causing this to occur? THANX IN ADVANCE....

Theres nothing wrong. That is a double echo and you should be getting one.

A double echo is cause by repeat readings off a hard bottom. It is a normal reading, if it bothers you try decreasing the range so it is no longer visible.

    • I know I didn't pay $28 each for the trolley. Maybe half that. On the lake so I can't look up where I got them right this second.    Menards has the strut channel and a bunch of accessories. 
    • Strut is $15 per 10' at Menards. I've bought the trolleys from Mcmaster Carr before. Looks like they are $25 each on there for the doubles.
    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
