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.
