Question about Eagle 480 Graph

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a splitter cable that would make it possible to move the graph from the console to the bow for fishing, but still allow use at the console. Is there anything like that available or would a guy be SOL?

I do not know of a splitter like you are talking about, but I may be wrong. You might want to check LEI Electronics online to see if they make something. I like to be able to move my unit around as well, so I just have a long wire bundle tethered to the unit at all times. I also use RAM mounts to secure the unit where I want it. It may not look like the most asthetically pleasing solution, but it works for me.

You can use Lowrances(same as Eagle) networking systems and wire it to the spot you want. Then just simply disconnect from one place and reconnect at the new place you want. With this network system, you can even buy another unit and they both run on the same sonar and gps. It's like having one system but with two monitors.

I didn't think that sonar signals could be networked. I know that the gps can be, however. I don't know that the 480 is able to be networked at all. I would go along with Gregg and do the tethered bundle or hide the bundle behind the side wall and pull it to the front when needed.

Come to think of it you're right, the sonar can't be networked just the gps, was thinking to fast. I don't have the eagle but I have the lowrance lms480 and it shares gps with my at the time not stolen yet lcx26hd.

I think that the 480 Eagle is the fishfinder/seafinder series and not like the lowrance.

Tom (and everyone else)

The Eagle 480 (depthfinder only) can't be networked with anything. Eagle combo units can probably be networked on the older NMEA0183 system (not sure about that though) but not on the newer NMEA2000 system that is on the Lowrance units now. The ability to network together via the LowranceNet is one of the things you get when you pay the higher price for Lowrance vs. Eagle.

Regarding a 'splitter cable' for your Eagle 480, I don't think such a thing exists. But you could get an extra transducer, the transducer cable/plug on the Eagle 480 is combined with a power cable. Mount the transducer to your 2nd location, connect the power to the battery, and move your unit to whereever you want it whenever you want it there. Put dielectric grease in the plugs to protect them when you're not using them. Use care in connecting and disconnecting the transducer/power cable plug to make sure you don't damage the pins.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
