898HDSI problems
« on: April 28, 2013, 09:42:51 AM »

So I got my new unit installed on the boat. I added a shoot thru transducer and the book says to set the unit on dual beam. When I do this I have no SI I have to go back to the SI transducer to use it. Also hooked up ethernet to 898 to my 788HDDI unit and I get networking on the 898 but not on the 788 so I cannot link the 2 together. Any body able to help me out.

Remember you don't quit fishing when you get old, you get old when you quit fishing

Relying totally on memory, and you know how bad that can be. 
I don't have the ethernet I have the interlink. 
I believe that I had to set each unit to share  waypoints with each other and the interlink.  It should be a set up thing when you first turn them on. 

I don't remember doing anything special with the two SI transducers in the back.  Maybe I just lucked out, but the unit just switches back and forth between the two as needed.

I just did an update on the 898 SIc.  To do so, I had to reset to factory defaults, and yesterday everything worked just fine. 

So much water.  So many lures.  So little time.
