I have one of these ,but I have no book for it and was wondering if anyone could tell me where I might find one or explain to me how to read it properly as far as the greyline goes and explain how to set the range,zoom,etc,etc.

I'm not familiar with that particular unit, but a good rule of thumb is to run your depth range, sensitivity, and grey line settings on automatic so the unit adjusts them. This is especially true if you're moving around through different depths and over different bottom contents, etc.

Running the unit on manual depth range will display only that range. For example, set it at 0-20 and if you get deeper than 20 feet it won't show you the bottom. And even in 17-20 feet it won't show you the full grey line.

Zoom magnifies the bottom portion of the diplay, usually in 2x or 4x zoom. For example, if you're in the 0-20 range and press zoom once it will display 2x zoom and only the bottom 10 feet - press it again and it will display 4x zoom and only the bottom 5 feet. The amount of depth that is displayed in zoom mode is deterined by the depth range you're in. Zoom is helpful if you're really trying to pick apart the bottom content or look for bottom-hugging fish.

Regarding grey line, a thin dark line marking the bottom with a wide grey line under it indicates a hard bottom, and a thicker dark line indicating bottome with a thinner grey line under it indicates a soft bottom. You can play around with the grayline setting to fine tune this, but like I said usually running it in the auto mode is a good way to go.

Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

You should be able to find a manual online. I had an older hummingbird and just googled manual for the type i had and found it, printed it, then i found mine.

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
