1 Introduction
Congratulations on choosing a Navman ÞshÞnder. For maximum beneÞt, please read this
manual carefully before installation and use.
This manual describes how to install and set
up the FISH 4350 or FISH 4380. Refer to
seperate Transducer Installation Instructions
supplied with the transducer.
This manual also explains how to operate the
FISH 4350 and FISH 4380 effectively and gives
troubleshooting and performance tips.
Important
It is vital to the performance of the ÞshÞnder
that the transducer is installed in the best
location. Please follow the installation
instructions very carefully.
1-1 BeneÞts of the FISH 4350 and FISH 4380
The FISH 4350 and FISH 4380 are high quality
ÞshÞnders that are supplied with a transducer.
Both use TFT (Thin Film Transistor) technology
to provide a colour display for easy daylight
viewing. The LED backlight can be dimmed for
night Þshing. The bracket mounting option also
allows the ÞshÞnder to be tilted and swivelled for
optimum viewing.
navigation by providing depth information to help
identify the depth contours marked on charts.
The colours on the sonar displays are customizable, with a choice of four 16 colour
palettes and one 8 colour palette. The colours
represent different signal strengths, making the
sonar displays easy to interpret.
With the optional fuel kit, the FISH 4380 also
becomes a sophisticated and easy-to-use
fuel computer.
This capability, combined with a variable power
output of up to 200 W RMS, ensures that the
FISH 4350 and FISH 4380 operate effectively
in shallow and deep water.
The FISH 4350 and FISH 4380 can detect the
bottom to a depth of 600 feet (180 metres)
depending on the clarity of the water and the
type of transducer used.
The Navman ÞshÞnder can be used to Þnd Þsh,
to locate features on the bottom such as reefs
or wrecks and to help recognize favourite Þshing
spots from the bottom proÞle.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON USE. While any
ÞshÞnder can be used as an aid to navigation,
accuracy can be limited by many factors,
including the location of the transducer. It is
the user’s responsibility to ensure the Navman
ÞshÞnder is installed and used correctly.
All of the Navman 4000 Series fishfinders
use proprietary SBN Technology for sonar
processing to improve Signal enhancement,
Bottom recognition and Noise rejection.
SBN Technology uses digital adaptive filter
algorithms to enhance all returned signals. At the
same time, SBN Technology uses active noise
control to reject interference, which can often be
mistaken by ÞshÞnders for true returns.
Using SBN Technology, the Navman ÞshÞnder
analyses the reßections from each pulse, Þlters
false returns and displays what is in the water
under the boat. See section 4-1 Interpreting the
display, for more information.
The Navman fishfinder can also assist with
1-2 How the FISH 4350 and FISH 4380 work
The FISH 4350 and FISH 4380 have two parts:
- the transducer attached to the hull
- the display unit.
The transducer generates an ultrasonic pulse
(sound that is above the hearing range of the
human ear), which travels down towards the
bottom at a speed of about 4800 ft/sec (1500 m/
sec), spreading out into a cone shape.
When the pulse meets an object, such as a
Þsh or the bottom, it is partly reßected back up
4
towards the boat as an echo. The depth of the
object or bottom is calculated by the FISH 4350
and FISH 4380 by measuring the time taken
between sending a pulse and receiving the
echo. When an echo has been returned, the
next pulse is sent.
The FISH 4350 and FISH 4380 convert each
echo into an electronic signal, displayed as a
vertical line of pixels. The most recent echo
appears on the extreme right of the display, with
NAVMAN
FISH 4350 / 4380 Installation and Operation Manual
the older echoes being scrolled towards the left,
eventually disappearing off the display.
The scroll speed depends upon the water
depth and scroll speed setting. See section
3-2 Setup > Sonar and section 4-1 Interpreting
the display, for more information.
The appearance of echoes displayed are
affected by:
•
•
•
the ÞshÞnder settings (range and gain
settings)
echoes (different Þsh types, different
bottom types, wrecks and seaweed)
noise (water clarity and bubbles).

Enter the capacity of the fuel tank.
Num. engines
Set the number of engines to 0, 1 or 2. If 0 is
selected the fuel features are turned off.
See section 3-9 Setup > Calibrate.
Most engines do not draw fuel from the tank at
a steady rate. To give a stable fuel ßow reading,
the ÞshÞnder calculates the ßow value(s) by
taking several measurements and averaging
them. Use the Flow Þlter to set the period over
which the fuel ßow is averaged.
1. Note the Remaining reading on the
Fuel display.
2. Note how much fuel is added or removed.
3. Calculate how much fuel is now in the
tank.
4. Select Set remaining and update
the reading.
For twin engine installations, the fuel ßow for
each engine must be adjusted separately.
It is essential to do this whenever some fuel
is added or removed. Otherwise, the reading
on the Fuel display (see section 5-5 Fuel
Display) and the Low Fuel Alarm (see section
3-6 Setup > Alarms) are meaningless.
The Flow Þlter can be set from 0 to 10 seconds.
Use the lowest value which gives a stable ßow.
Usually a value of 5 seconds (default setting)
will give a satisfactory result for two-stroke
carburettor engines.
Clear Used
This setting affects the Fuel ßow and Fuel
economy reading on the Fuel display (see
section 5-5. Fuel display) but it does not affect
the Fuel used reading.

3-9 Setup > Calibrate
Press MENU twice to display the Setup menu,
then select Calibrate:
The fuel options
can be calibrated
only when the
optional single or
twin engine kit is
installed on petrol/
gasoline engines.
Speed
Calibration may be
required because different hull shapes have different ßow characteristics.
Obtain an accurate measurement of the boat's
speed from a GPS receiver; or by following an12
other boat travelling at a known speed; or by
making a timed run over a known distance.
Note: for accurate calibration:
• The speed from a GPS receiver should be
greater than 5 knots.
• The speed from another paddlewheel transducer should be between 5 and 20 knots.
• Best results are achieved in calm conditions
where there is minimal current (best at high or
low tide).
Use the cursor keys to display the speed readout
box, then increase or decrease the readout to
match the independent speed value.
Temperature
The factory settings should be sufÞciently accu-

FISH 4350 / 4380 Installation and Operation Manual
rate for normal usage. To calibrate the temperature readout, Þrst measure the water temperature
with a thermometer known to be accurate.
Use the cursor keys to display the temperature
readout box, then increase or decrease the
value to match the measured temperature. The
temperature can be set from 32° to 99.9°F (0°
to 37.7°C) with a resolution of 0.1° unit.
To change the units between °F (Fahrenheit) or
°C (Celsius), see section 3-7 Setup > Units.
Fuel
Calibrating the fuel usage can improve the
accuracy of fuel measurements.
Twin engine installations require each fuel
transducer to be calibrated. This can be done
at the same time with two portable tanks or at
different times using one portable tank.
Calibrating the fuel transducer(s) requires
accurate measurement of the fuel consumption.
This is best done using a small portable tank. At
least 4 gallons (15 litres) of fuel should be used
to ensure an accurate calibration.
It is often very difÞcult to Þll underßoor tanks
to the same level twice due to air pockets,
so the more fuel used, the more accurate the
calibration.
To calibrate the fuel transducer(s), perform the
following steps:
1. Record the level of the fuel in the tank(s).
2. Connect the portable tank(s) to the
engine through the fuel transducer(s).
3. Run the engine at normal cruising speed
until at least 4 gallons (15 litres) of fuel
has been used per engine.
4. Check the actual amount of fuel used per
engine by reÞlling the portable tank(s) to
the original level and noting the reading(s)
from the fuel dispenser’s gauge.
5. Select Fuel. Use or to change the
reading to match that on the fuel dispenser’s gauge.
6. Press when the reading is correct.
Note: If the fuel calibration options appear
to give erroneous readings after a while, Þrst
check that the fuel sensor has been installed
correctly according to the installation instructions supplied with it, then see Appendix B
- Troubleshooting.
Keel Offset
Keel offset is a depth correction representing the
vertical distance between the depth transducer
and the location from which the depth is to be
measured.

4-1 Interpreting the display
The sonar displays do not show a Þxed distance
travelled by the boat; rather, they display a
history, showing what has passed below the
boat during a certain period of time.
The history of the sonar signal displayed
depends the depth of the water and the scroll
speed setting.
In shallow water, the echoes have a short
FISH 4350 / 4380 Installation and Operation Manual
distance to travel between the bottom and the
boat. In deep water, the history moves across
the display more slowly because the echoes
take longer to travel between the bottom and
the boat. For example, when the scroll speed
is set to Fast, at depths over 600 ft (180 m) it
takes about 2 minutes for each vertical line of
pixels to move across the display, whereas at
NAVMAN
13
20 ft (6 m) it takes only about 25 seconds.
The scroll speed can be set by the user to
display either a longer history with less Þsh
information or a shorter history with more Þsh
details. See section 3-2 Setup > Sonar.
If the boat is anchored, the echoes all come
from the same area of bottom. This produces
a ßat bottom trace on the display.

covered by the ultrasonic pulse is a rough
cone shape and the echoes are strongest
in the middle.)
• Clarity of water. Particles or air in the water
reduce the strength of the echo.
• Composition or density of the object or
bottom.
Note: Planing hulls at speed produce air
bubbles and turbulent water that bombard
the transducer. The resulting ultrasonic noise
may be picked up by the transducer and
obscure the real echoes.

Strength of echoes
The colours indicate differences in the strength
of the echo. The strength varies with several
factors, such as the:
• Size of the Þsh, school of Þsh or other
object.
• Depth of the Þsh or object.
• Location of the Þsh or object. (The area
Mud, weed and sandy bottoms tend to weaken
and scatter the sonar pulse, resulting in a weak
echo. Hard, rocky or coral bottoms reßect the
pulse, resulting in a strong echo. See section
5-3 Sonar Bottom display.
Frequency and cone width
Depth
The pulse generated by the FISH 4350 and
FISH 4380 transducer travels down through
the water, spreading outwards to form a rough
cone shape. Inside the cone, the return signals
are the strongest. The cone width is dependent
upon the transducer design and the frequency
of the pulse: with Navman’s transom mount
supplied, it is about 15°. The chart shows
how the cone width varies over depth for each
frequency used. Figures are approximate.

Shadows
Shadows are created around areas where the ultrasonic beam cannot ‘see’. These areas include hollows
on the bottom or beside rocks and ledges, where the strong echoes returned off the rocks obscure the
weak echoes of the Þsh and may also create a double bottom trace. See following for an example of
the sonar display in such an environment. A double bottom trace is shown on the display.

When a boat is stationary, all bottom echoes will come from

Note: Times indicated are for illustration only.
4-2 Fish detection and display
Where to Þnd Þsh
Underwater features like reefs, wrecks and
rocky outcrops attract Þsh. Use the sonar to
Þnd these features, then look for Þsh by passing
over the feature slowly several times using the
Zoom display (see section 5-2 Sonar Zoom
display). If there is a current, the Þsh will often
be found downstream of the feature.
When fishing with the FISH 4350 and FISH
4380 with the Fish symbols Off, a weak fuzzy
band may appear between the bottom trace
and surface. This might indicate a thermocline
- a rapid change in water temperature, such
as the edge of a warm or cold current. The
temperature difference can form a barrier which
the Þsh may not swim through. In fresh water,
Þsh often collect around a thermocline.
Fish symbols
The Þsh symbol can be customized or
switched off altogether so that the echoes
are not converted to Þsh symbols on the
display. See section 3-2 Setup > Sonar. The
differences between Fish symbol On and
Off are:
Fish symbols On
The following picture shows the Sonar display with
the Fish symbol: On + depth:
Fish symbol Off
Using Navman’s SBN sonar technology the
ÞshÞnder analyses all echoes and eliminates
most false signals and clutter so that remaining
targets are most likely Þsh. Depending on the
16
strength of
the remaining echoes,
they are
displayed as
either small,
medium or
large Þsh
symbols
- with or
without
depth. While
the SBN
processing is very
sophisticated
it is not foolproof - there will be times when
the ÞshÞnder will not be able to differentiate
between large air bubbles, rubbish containing
air, Þshing ßoats etc. and Þsh.
For experienced users this always provides the
best information as every echo is displayed,
whether it is surface clutter, a thermocline or
a Þsh.
The picture in section 4-1 Interpreting the
display, shows the Sonar display with the Fish
symbols Off. The Þsh appear as arches.
NAVMAN
FISH 4350 / 4380 Installation and Operation Manual
Fish arches
Transducers Installation Guide).
In good conditions and with Fish symbols Off,
a Þsh passing through the cone-shaped ultrasonic pulse is displayed as a Þsh arch.
A Þsh arch occurs when a Þsh enters the weak
edge of the sonar cone, generating a weak echo
that is displayed as the Þrst pixel of the Þsh arch.
As the Þsh moves closer to the middle of the
cone, the distance between the transducer and
the Þsh reduces and the echo is displayed at
progressively shallower depths, producing the
start of an arch. When the Þsh passes directly beneath the middle of the cone, the echo becomes
strongest and thickest. As the Þsh passes out of
the middle of the cone the reverse happens with
a progressively weaker and deeper echo.
There are many reasons why Þsh arches may
not be seen. For example:
• Poor transducer installation (see Transom
• If the boat is anchored then Þsh will tend to
show on the display as horizontal lines as
they swim into and out of the transducer
sonar beam. Slow speeds in deeper water
give the best Þsh arch returns.
• Range is important. It will be much easier
to see Þsh arches when using zoom mode
to concentrate on a particular section of
water, rather than just displaying everything
from the surface to the bottom. Zooming
increases screen resolution up to 100 times.
• It is difÞcult to get Þsh arches in shallow
water as the transducer sonar beam is very
narrow near the surface and Þsh do not stay
within the beam long enough to display an
arch. Several Þsh in shallow water tend to
display as randomly stacked blocks of pixels.
• Wave motion may result in distorted fish
arches.
4-3 Gain
Gain (sensitivity) controls the amount of detail
displayed on the FISH 4350 and FISH 4380.
Understanding how to set suitable Gain settings
is important for optimum performance.
The Navman ÞshÞnder has two gain modes,
Auto Gain and Manual Gain. Normally the
best results are obtained in Manual Gain, but
practice and experience are required to obtain
the optimum settings for different conditions.
Therefore, the use of Auto Gain is strongly
recommended when learning to use the
ÞshÞnder or when travelling at speed.
•
In Auto Gain, the gain adjusts
automatically to compensate for water
depth and clarity.
•
In Manual Gain, the gain can be adjusted
by the user to compensate for water
depth and clarity.
High Gain settings may amplify the normal background noise until it appears as random pixels.
Note: The Gain mode
automatically changes
to Manual Gain if the
gain setting is adjusted
by the user.
Obtaining the best
results
To obtain the best
detection capability for
both fish and bottom
we recommend the
user adjusts the gain in the A-Scope display
until the threshold line is just to the right of the
unwanted noise:

4-4 Range
Range is the vertical depth displayed on the
FISH 4350 and FISH 4380.
The Navman ÞshÞnder has two range modes,
Auto Range and Manual Range:
• In Auto Range, the ÞshÞnder adjusts
the depth range automatically so the
bottom is always shown in the lower part
of the display. The use of Auto Range is
recommended for normal conditions.
• In Manual Range, the ÞshÞnder shows only
a selected depth range. In areas of rapidly
changing bottom depth, such as the sea
ßoor around pinnacles, it can be useful
to prevent the display from rescaling to
always show the bottom. If the bottom is
deeper than the speciÞed depth range, it
will not be shown on the display.

To change between Auto Range and Manual
Range, hold the + or -. The Range mode is
displayed at the bottom of the screen.

The echo strengths shown on the A-Scope can
be useful in recognising the type of Þsh. Different
species of Þsh have different sizes and shapes
of swim bladders. The air in the swim bladder
reßects the ultrasonic pulse, so the strength of
the echo varies between Þsh species according
to the size and shape of the swim bladder.
When fishing among a school of fish and
catching them, note the Þsh species and the
strength of the echo that it returns on the
A-Scope. Then, when that particular echo is
seen at future times on the ÞshÞnder, it is likely
to be the same Þsh species.

Economy is the distance travelled per unit of
fuel used. The ÞshÞnder calculates this from
the boat speed and fuel used. The bigger this
number, the better the fuel economy. Adjust
the throttle and trim to achieve the best fuel
economy. Note that the FISH 4380 uses a
paddlewheel transducer to measure speed,
used to calculate the fuel economy. Therefore,
calibration of the boat speed measurement is
essential for an accurate fuel economy reading.

would generally be in a shaded area.
• Bracket mounting requires a panel for
mounting the bracket. Ensure that the panel
is not likely to deform and is not subject to
excessive vibration. The bracket can be tilted
and rotated so the FISH 4350 and FISH 4380
can be removed after each use.
Select a position where the display unit will be:
• At least 4" (100 mm) away from the compass.
• At least 12" (300 mm) away from any radio
transmitter.
• At least 4 ft (1.2 m) away from any antenna.
• Easy to read by the helmsman and crew
while underway.
• Protected from physical damage during
rough sea passages.
• Easy to access the 12 V DC power source.
• Convenient to route the transducer cables.

6-6 Cleaning and maintenance
Clean the screen only with a damp cloth and mild
detergent when dirty or covered in sea salt. Avoid
abrasive cleaners, petrol or other solvents.
Cover or remove a transom-mounted
transducer when repainting the hull. If painting
over a through hull transducer with antifouling
paint, use only one coat of paint. Remove the
previous coat of antifouling paint by sanding it
lightly.To optimize performance, avoid walking
on or jamming cables and connectors. Keep the
transducer free of weed, paint and debris. Do not
use a high pressure water blast on a speed sensor
paddlewheel as it may damage the bearings.
When not in use, the FISH 4350 or FISH 4380
can be removed from the installation bracket and
stored in the Navman carry bag, or left on the
installation bracket and securely covered with
the sun cover.

FISH 4350 / 4380 Installation and Operation Manual
Appendix B - Troubleshooting
This troubleshooting guide is written with
the assumption that the user has read and
understood the relevant sections in this manual.
It is possible in many cases to solve difÞculties
without having to send the display unit back to
the manufacturer for repair. Please follow this
troubleshooting section before contacting the
nearest Navman dealer.
There are no user serviceable parts. Specialized
methods and testing equipment are required to
ensure that the display unit is reassembled
correctly and is waterproof. Users who service
the product themselves will void the warranty.
Repairs to the product may only be carried out
by a service centre approved by Navman. If the
product must be sent into a service centre for
repair, it is essential to send in the transducer(s)
at the same time.
More information can be found on our Website:
www.navman.com.
1. The ÞshÞnder won’t turn on:
a) The FISH 4350 and FISH 4380 are
designed to operate on a 12 volt battery
system, where the voltage may vary from
10 to 16.5 volts. If an excessive voltage is
supplied, a resettable fuse will be tripped,
turning the display unit off.
b) Check that the power cable connector at the
back of the display unit is securely plugged
in and the collar is locked in place. The collar
must be secure for watertight connection.
c) Measure the battery voltage while the battery
is under load - turn on some lights, radio or
other electrical equipment connected to the
battery. If the voltage is less than 10 volts:
- the battery terminals or wiring on the
terminals may be corroded.
- the battery may not be charging
correctly or may need replacing.
d) Inspect the power cable from end to
end for damage such as cuts, breaks,
squashed or trapped sections.
e) Ensure that the red wire is connected to the
positive battery terminal and the black wire to
the negative battery terminal. If wired for the
Auto Power option, ensure the yellow wire is
connected to the ignition circuit. Also check
the boat’s main switch circuit (see section
6-5 Wiring options).
f) Check for corrosion on the power cable
connector and clean or replace if required.
g) Check fuses that are placed in line with the
power cable. A fuse can be blown despite

appearing to be good or the fuse may be
corroded. Test the fuse or replace it with a
fuse known to be good.
The ÞshÞnder won’t turn off:
The ÞshÞnder may have been wired for
Auto power. In this case, the fishfinder
cannot be turned off while the ignition power
is on. (See Auto power wiring in section 6-4
Wiring options.)
The ÞshÞnder operates erratically:
Check that the transducer does not have
debris (e.g. weed, plastic bag) caught
around it.
The transducer may have been damaged
during launching, running aground or
while underway with debris etc. If the
transducer has been impacted, it may have
been kicked up on the bracket. If it is not
physically damaged, reset the transducer
back to its original position. (See the
Transom Transducer Installation Guide.)
When the transducer is less that 2 ft (0.6 m)
from the bottom, the depth readings may
become inconsistent and erratic.
Manual Gain may be set too low, which may
cause weak bottom echo or no Þsh signals.
If in Manual Gain, try increasing the Gain.
Ensure the back of the bottom surface of the
transducer is slightly lower than the front and
the front is as deep in the water as possible in
order to minimize the generation of bubbles
through cavitation. (See the Transom
Transducers Installation Guide.)
Check the transducer and power cable
connectors at the back of the display unit
are securely plugged in and the collars are
locked in place. The collars must be secure
for watertight connection.
Inspect the power cable from end to end for
damage such as cuts, breaks, squashed or
trapped sections.
Ensure there is not another fishfinder
or depth sounder turned on, which may
interfere with this ÞshÞnder.
Electrical noise from the boat’s engine
or an accessory may be interfering with
the transducer(s) and/or the Navman
ÞshÞnder. This may cause the ÞshÞnder
to automatically decrease the Gain unless
using Manual Gain.
The fishfinder thus eliminates weaker
signals such as Þsh or even the bottom
from the display. This may be checked by

switching off other instruments, accessories
(e.g. bilge pump) and the motor until the
offending device is located. To stop
problems from electrical noise, try:
- re-routing the power and transducer
cable(s) away from the boat’s other
electrical wiring.
- routing the display unit’s power cable
directly to the battery with an in-line fuse.
Bottom is not displayed:
The ÞshÞnder may have Manual Range
selected and the depth may be outside the
range value selected. Either change the
ÞshÞnder to Auto Range or select another
depth range (see section 4-4 Range).
The depth may be outside the ÞshÞnder’s
range. While in Auto Range, the display
unit will display “--.-” to indicate that there is
no bottom detected. A display of the bottom
should reappear when in shallower water.
The bottom is displayed too far up
the screen:
The ÞshÞnder may have Manual Range
selected and the selected Range value is
too high for the depth. Either change the
ÞshÞnder to Auto Range or select another
depth range (see section 4-4 Range).
Bottom echo disappears or erratic
digital reading while the boat is moving:
Ensure the back of the bottom surface
of the transducer is slightly lower than
the front and the front is as deep in the
water as possible in order to minimise the
generation of bubbles through cavitation.
(See the Transom Transducers Installation
Guide, for more information.)
The transducer may be in turbulent water.
Air bubbles in the water disrupt the echoes
returned, interfering with the ÞshÞnder’s
ability to Þnd the bottom or other targets.
This often happens when the boat is
reversed. The transducer must be mounted
in a smooth ßow of water in order for the
ÞshÞnder to work at all boat speeds.
Electrical noise from the boat’s motor
can interfere with the ÞshÞnder. Try some
suppression spark plugs.
If the ÞshÞnder beeps when turned on
but nothing is displayed:
The ÞshÞnder may be operating, but the
backlight settings may have been set too
low. See section 2 Basic Operation, to adjust
the ÞshÞnder backlight. (Press twice)
8. The wrong language is displayed:
See section 3-1 Setup > System.
9. Fuel used or remaining seem inaccurate:
a) If the engine is run while the ÞshÞnder is
powered off, the ÞshÞnder does not record
the amount of fuel used during that engine
run. Consequently, the Fuel remaining
value will be higher than the actual amount
of fuel remaining in the tank.
To avoid this problem, use the Auto Power
Wiring option described in section 6-4 Wiring
options. This ensures that the fishfinder
powers on automatically whenever the
boat’s ignition is switched on.
b) In rough seas, fuel may surge back and
forth through the fuel transducer, resulting in
incorrect readings. Try installing a one-way
valve between the fuel transducer and the
fuel tank.
c) The Set remaining fuel value must be
reset after every refuelling (see section 3-3
Setup > Fuel).
d) The fuel tank may not reÞll to the same
capacity each time due to air pockets. This is
particularly noticable with underßoor tanks.
e) Fuel transducers wear out over time and
should be replaced after every 5000 litres
of fuel.
10. Flow indicates no fuel or low fuel:
a) Check that the number of engines is set
to 1. See section 3-3 Setup > Fuel.
b) Check that the fuel cable connectors are
securely plugged in and the collar is locked
in place. The collar must be locked in place
to give a watertight connection.
c) A fuel transducer may be clogged. If so,
remove the transducer from the fuel line
and gently blow through it in the opposite
direction to the fuel ßow.
A fuel Þlter between the fuel transducer
and the fuel tank must be installed as per
the fuel installation guide. Failure to do so
will void the warranty.
d) Inspect the fuel cable from end to end for
damage such as cuts, breaks, trapped or
squashed sections.
e) Check that the fuel Þlter is clean.
11. A twin engine installation shows only
one ßow rate:
a) Check that the number of engines is set
to 2. See section 3-3 Setup > Fuel.
NAVMAN
FISH 4350 / 4380 Installation and Operation Manual
12. Erratic Fuel Flow readings:
a) The fuel ßow transducer may have been
mounted too close to the fuel pump or may
be subject to excessive vibration. Refer to
the installation instructions supplied with the
fuel transducer.
b) Check for leaks in the fuel line or in the fuel
pickup in the tank.
c) The Flow Þlter value is not suitable for the
engine. Check that the value is not set to zero,
then try increasing the value until a steady ßow
rate is shown. See section 3-3 Setup > Fuel.
13. There is no reading for fuel economy:
a) The boat must be travelling through the
FISH 4350 / 4380 Installation and Operation Manual
water to generate an Economy reading.
b) Check that the paddlewheel on the transducer
is spinning freely and that the two magnets in
the paddlewheel are still in place.
14. There is a double bottom trace
displayed:
a) The boat may be in an area that
generates shadows. See section 4-1
Interpreting the display.
b) In shallow water, the echoes may bounce.
Reduce the gain setting (see section 4-3
Gain).
c) Decrease the Range.
