showdown fish finder?

Recommended Posts

Yes. My dad has the vpg and I sent it in last year for a free upgrade. I know they may charge for it now but with the newest software its definitly worth it.

Its nice that you can get it flashed with new software and it works better. Cant do that with a regular flasher.

I usually tuck the front velcro cover through the handle on top that way it stays out of the way when I move from hole to hole.

I agree that the transducer bracket is rather snug since I did happen to break it and now am using it with out until I break down and replace it.

I also tuck the cover back through the handle, this seems to be the best solution to keeping th cover out of the way.

In regards to the bracket:

When I pulled the Showdown out of its case, I found that due to lack of clearance, the bracket was catching on the battery strap each time I would try to push the bracket back into the stored position. Solution: tape the battery strap down snug to the battery allowing clearance for the bracket to be stored. Make sure to attach the tape lengthwise the same direction that the bracket moves (parallel to the bracket movement). The clearance is pretty snug here, and if you attach the tape perpendicular to the bracket, the bracket back is more likely to catch on the tape edges. Because it is thin, and the bracket slides well on it, electrical tape worked well in this application.

Thanks for the comments. I am planning on sending my VPG in for the upgrade. I cant wait to use it again. Love the unit.

    • It just has settled over the years. Otherwise the roof is dry. We also did some remodeling and lost some insulation I suppose doing that. But the last time the cellulose insulation was blown in was 1994. Going up there it has definitely settled over the years   Once we close it up in 1994 I never had a reason to go up there again
    • your exactly right, thats kinda what it looks like. but dont knock it till ya try it.
    • I have rented a machine from the save big money store. I ran the hose in the attic while the wife fed the hopper. Was very easy job to do ourselves. But we did it for new construction in a garage attic. Only downside was the machine was super heavy so I would account for that.    I dont think the order of that vs your roof matters unless your roof leaks? Are you losing insulation or is it just settling? Do you have soffit baffles installed?
    • I think the part smurfy left out is the french press.   https://www.thespruceeats.com/egg-coffee-2952648   The only place I have had egg coffee is at some lutheran church's diner at the state fair.  It's a pretty decent cup of coffee.
    • Coffee grounds boiled egg?  You been reading to many of Del's Sous Vide posts! 🤢🤮 😆
    • Maybe I'm missing something, but doesn't the egg cook in the boiling water?  I'm picturing coffee with bunch of floating bits of scrambled eggs floating at the top.
    • I think it's diluted.  It's a different sort of awful than burnt awful.
    • my guess super cheap and a poor grade of coffee!!!!!!!!!!   if anyone uses on of them pots papadarv has pictured, try making egg coffee. man thats good stuff. simply put the coffee grounds in a cup, and an egg, no shells, mix good and put in the boiling water. you do need to pay attention, it boils over easy. when you think its done, just add a bit of cold water, this makes everything settle sooner. and enjoy.
    • Right to the ice if possible but hard to do in snow. Push them into the slush. Gaps let wind in
    • ... in an attic.  I’m due to re-blow that cellulose insulation into my attic this spring. The first time I had a professional blow it in. I’m have heard that re-insulating it is a project you can do yourself you could just rent the machine/blower. Has anybody here done it themselves?  I’m also getting my roof redone this spring. Should the cellulose insulation be blown in after the roofing is completed or doesn’t  it matter?
