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.

    • Peppers are back in the cold smoke. Breaking out the gas smoker later for jerky, not having a dehydrator think I'll put the peppers in the smoker and dry them out that way at around 130 or 140 degrees after the jerky is done. Not sure if it'll work but WTH. 
    • As the Chronicle reports, Pelosi spoke out Tuesday, essentially begging people to stop talking about third-party candidates and messing up the polling, saying that a narrow victory in the general election "would deprive Hillary Clinton of a big mandate that I think she should have going into the White House and that would be helpful as to how we go forward."   This is just how Del, D2E, Hillary, Donald, and Nancy Pelosi feel about 3rd party candidates.  Nothing personal.  
    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.
