Thread: Why is my sounder not reading consistently?

    Why is my sounder not reading consistently?

    Iíve got a Lowrance Hook2 4x GPS sounder (el-cheapo model) and Iím having trouble getting it to read consistently. Sometimes itís fine, but often it just fails to give a consistent reading, even at anchor. The attached photo is from a calm day while the boat is anchored. Any ideas on where to start with faultfinding?

    Has the transducer kicked up and pointing out the back. This will cause this to occur, could be other issues though.

    No, transducer placement is OK, I checked it before this trip. Itís attached to the transom in line with the bottom of the hull.

    Looks like it may be changing ranges? Do you run it in auto mode? If possible, if that model offers, try charging the range to manual and run it at the appropriate depth. Looks like it is still reading the bottom

    U could try a factory reset, should find it in setting somewhere.

    This. These models are notorious for hunting between depth ranges in auto, I think it mostly occurs at shallow depths. The only fix is to put in manual.
