Dual Depth Finder Problems????

Recommended Posts

Guest

As an unselfish fisherman I have tried to provide a LCD depth finder for my fishing partner in the front of the boat so they can also see what I am seeing in the back of the boat. They also should have the ability to see the bottom and tolling contour, jigging structure and when I am under way (to help navigate among the rocks). My only problem is that I can't seem to run two Depth finders at the same time without the interference from one mucking up the other. I have them placed close together in the back of the boat (and I know that is a little bit of the reason but don't want to start drilling holes in my boat if there is another solution.) What I would like to do is keep my X-65 in back and up-grade the Front one this year. Is there a LCD Depth finder that has a different frequency that could run at the same time with out the fowling up the back one? I know the Vexilar’s will work with the X-65 but is there a LCD that might?

Goose/ I run three LCR's and a Vex. Your doing the right thing by letting your partner get to see what they are fishing. You have identified the problem. Your running two locators on the same freqency. I run a LMS-350a for my GPS. I then use a x-85 and the Garmin 240 for fishing. The Garmin runs on 200khz which will not interfere with the lowrance LCR's. Also make sure each unit is wired to an independent battery. Or make sure your not wiring any locators to a battery that powers a trolling motor.. D-man
