How Sonar Works
Sonar technology is based on sound waves. The 700 Series™ Fishing System
uses sonar to locate and define structure, bottom contour and composition, as
well as depth directly below the transducer.
Your 700 Series™ Fishing System sends a sound wave signal and determines
distance by measuring the time between the transmission of the sound wave
and when the sound wave is reflected off of an object; it then uses the reflected
signal to interpret location, size, and composition of an object.
Sonar is very fast. A sound wave can travel from the surface to a depth of
240 ft (70 m) and back again in less than 1/4 of a second. It is unlikely that your
boat can "outrun" this sonar signal.
SONAR is an acronym for SOund and
NAvigation Ranging. Sonar utilizes precision
sound pulses or "pings" which are emitted
into the water in a teardrop-shaped beam.
The sound pulses "echo" back from objects
in the water such as the bottom, fish and
other submerged objects. The returned
echoes are displayed on the LCD screen.
Each time a new echo is received, the old
echoes are moved across the LCD, creating a
scrolling effect.

www.reelschematic.com
www.reelschematic.com
When all the echoes are viewed side by side, an
easy to interpret "graph" of the bottom, fish and
structure appears.
The sound pulses are transmitted at various
frequencies depending on the application. Very
high frequencies (455 kHz) are used for greatest
definition but the operating depth is limited. High
frequencies (200 kHz) are commonly used on
consumer sonar and provide a good balance
between depth performance and resolution. Low
frequencies (83 kHz) are typically used to achieve
greater depth capability.
The power output is the amount of energy
generated by the sonar transmitter. It is commonly
measured using two methods:
• Root Mean Square (RMS) measures power
output over the entire transmit cycle.
• Peak to Peak measures power output at the
highest points.
The benefits of increased power output are the
ability to detect smaller targets at greater
distances, ability to overcome noise, better high
speed performance and enhanced depth capability.

DualBeam PLUS™ Sonar
Your 700 Series™ Fishing System uses a 200/83
kHz DualBeam PLUS™ sonar system with a
wide (60°) area of coverage. DualBeam PLUS™
sonar has a narrowly focused 20° center beam,
surrounded by a second beam of 60°, expanding
your coverage to an area equal to your depth. In
20 feet of water, the wider beam covers an area
20 feet wide. The 20° center beam is focused on
the bottom, to show you structure, weeds and
cover. The 60° wide beam is hunting for fish in
the wide coverage area. DualBeam PLUS™
sonar returns can be blended together, viewed
separately or compared side-by-side. DualBeam
PLUS™ is ideal for a wide range of conditions from shallow to very deep water in both fresh
and salt water. Depth capability is affected by
such factors as boat speed, wave action, bottom
hardness, water conditions and transducer
installation.

QuadraBeam PLUS™ Sonar
(with optional-purchase QuadraBeam PLUS™
transducer)
Your 700 Series™ Fishing System also
supports QuadraBeam PLUS™ sonar with
the purchase of an additional QuadraBeam
PLUS™ transducer. QuadraBeam PLUS™
sonar provides an extremely wide 90° area
of coverage. QuadraBeam PLUS™ starts
with two fan-shaped 35° 455 kHz Side
Structure locating sonar beams to spot
fish, bait and structure to the left and right
of the boat over an area of the bottom
that’s always equal to twice your depth.
For a detailed view below the boat,
QuadraBeam PLUS™ uses DualBeam
PLUS™ technology, with precision 20° and
wide 60° beams. QuadraBeam PLUS™
finds more fish faster, and can even tell you
where to put your bait by showing if fish
are to the left, right or directly beneath
your boat.

WideSide® Sonar
(with optional-purchase WideSide®
transducer)
Your 700 Series™ Fishing System also
supports WideSide® sonar with the
purchase of an additional WideSide®
transducer. The WideSide® transducer is a
specialized "side-looking" transducer that
is extremely useful for bank fishing or
looking for bait fish in open water. The
WideSide® transducer uses three different
sonar elements that transmit signals to the
left, right and straight down from your
boat. The downward beam is 200 kHz with
a 24° area of coverage. This beam
maintains a continuous digital depth
readout from the bottom directly beneath
your boat. The side beams are 455 kHz with
a 16° area of coverage. The side-looking
elements can be used independently, or
together to locate targets near the surface
of the water on either side of your boat.
Universal Sonar 2
Your 700 Series™ Fishing System supports Universal Sonar 2, a state-of-theart, integrated and protected transducer that is built into the lower unit of
Minnkota trolling motors. With Universal Sonar 2, all wiring is concealed inside
the indestructible composite shaft—out of sight and out of harm’s way, with
no clamps, ties, or exposed wires. Universal Sonar 2 features new temperature
sensing and the performance of DualBeam PLUS™ technology (available with
all Humminbird® DualBeam PLUS™ models). An expanded view and greater
bottom detail gives you a totally new perspective of the water below, along
with optimal sonar performance to help you find fish.

How GPS and Cartography Work
Your 700 Series™ Fishing System also supports GPS and chartplotting, and
uses GPS and sonar to determine your position, display it on a grid, and provide
detailed underwater information. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a
satellite navigation system designed and maintained by the U.S. Department of
Defense. GPS was originally intended for military use; however, civilians may
also take advantage of its highly accurate position capabilities, typically within
+/- 10 meters, depending on conditions. This means that 95% of the time, the
GPS receiver will read a location within 10 meters of your actual position. Your
GPS Receiver also uses information from WAAS (the Wide Area Augmentation
System), EGNOS (the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service), and
MSAS (the MTSAT Satellite Augmentation System) satellites if they are
available in your area.
GPS uses a constellation of 24 satellites that
continually send radio signals to the earth. Your
present position is determined by receiving signals
from up to 16 satellites and measuring the
distance from the satellites.
All satellites broadcast a uniquely coded signal
once per second at exactly the same time. The GPS
receiver on your boat receives signals from
satellites that are visible to it. Based on time
differences between each received signal, the GPS
receiver determines its distance to each satellite.
With distances known, the GPS receiver
mathematically triangulates its own position.
With once per second updates, the GPS receiver
then calculates its velocity and bearing.
The GPS Receiver included with your 700 Series™ Fishing System allows you
to cosmbine easy-to-use FishingGPS® chartplotter and navigation capabilities
with advanced fishfinding.

Your 700 Series™ Fishing System also has a
multi-media card (MMC)/SD slot that is used to
insert optional-purchase cards containing
additional detailed maps. If you insert an
Inserting an MMC/SD
MMC/SD that contains a more detailed chart for
into the Card Slot
a particular location, your 700 Series™ Fishing
System will retrieve that chart and display it
automatically. Use the illustration to locate the position of the MMC/SD slot
cover, remove the MMC/SD slot cover, then insert the MMC/SD into the slot.
The label on the MMC/SD should face toward the right side of the unit. Press
down on the card until it clicks into place, then replace the slot cover, making
certain that the gasket is present and positioned correctly before re-installing
the cover, then replace and tighten snugly - do NOT overtighten, as this will not
improve water resistance, and may damage the cover.
Software Updates
Use the MMC/SD slot to update the software version of your control head. To
update the software in your control head, plug in the appropriate MMC/SD card
that contains a software update file; the unit will recognize it, will tell you what
software version your control head is currently running, and will ask you if you
want to update the software in the unit to match that on the MMC/SD card.
You can obtain software updates from the www.humminbird.com website.

speed of the boat, and can keep a Triplog of nautical
or statute miles traveled.
Second Sonar Return - when the sonar signal
bounces between the bottom and the surface of the
water and back again. Use the appearance of the
second return to determine bottom hardness. Hard
bottoms will show a strong second return, while soft
bottoms will show a very weak one or none at all.
Cursor Dialog Box - indicates cursor depth on the
display and the depth of the bottom directly below
the cursor. The Latitude and Longitude of the cursor
position, the distance to travel to the cursor
position and the bearing to the cursor position is
shown with a GPS receiver. A waypoint can be
marked at the cursor position for later retrieval and
use with a GPS receiver.
NOTE: Entries in this view that list (with Temp/Speed or GPS Receiver) are available if either
the information from the GPS receiver will be displayed on the view.

Sonar View
Sonar View presents a historical log of sonar returns. Depth is always displayed.
Readouts for temperature and speed are automatically displayed if the
appropriate accessory is connected. The most recent sonar returns are charted on
the right side of the window; as new information is received, the older
information is moved across the display to the left. A Digital Depth Readout is
displayed in the upper left corner. A scale with Upper and Lower Depth Range
readouts appears along the right edge of the Sonar View. The scale indicates the
distance from the surface of the water to a depth range sufficient to show the
bottom. Depth Range is automatically selected to keep the bottom visible on the
display, although you can adjust it manually as well (see Sonar X-Press™ Menu).
Five additional Digital Readouts display information from optional-purchase
accessories. These information boxes can be customized to show only the
information desired (see Setup Menu Tab, Select Readouts).

boat is moving too fast, or for any other reason that the unit can’t accurately receive
continuous data.

Understanding Sonar History
It is important to understand the significance of
the display. The display does NOT show a literal 3dimensional representation of what is under the
water. Each vertical band of data received by the
control head and plotted on the display represents
something that was detected by a sonar return at
a particular time. As both the boat and the targets
(fish) may be moving, the returns are only showing
a particular segment of time when objects were
detected, not exactly where those objects are in
relation to other objects shown on the display.

Real Time Sonar (RTS®) Window
A Real Time Sonar (RTS®) Window appears on the right side of the display in
the Sonar View only. The RTS® Window always updates at the fastest rate
possible for depth conditions and shows only the returns from the bottom,
structure and fish that are within the transducer beam. The RTS® Window plots
the depth and intensity of a sonar return. (See Sonar Menu: RTS® Window).
The Narrow RTS® Window
indicates the sonar intensity
through the use of colors.
Red indicates a strong return
and blue indicates a weak
return. The depth of the
sonar return is indicated by
the vertical placement of the
return on the display depth
scale.
The Wide RTS® Window indicates the sonar intensity
through the use of a bar
graph. The length of the
plotted return provides an
indication of whether the
return is weak or strong. The
depth of the sonar return is
indicated by the vertical
placement of the return on
the display depth scale. The
Wide RTS® Window does
not make use of grayscale.
Freeze Frame and Cursor
Freeze Frame - Pressing any arrow on the 4-WAY Cursor Control key will freeze
the screen and a cursor will be displayed on the screen. The cursor can be
positioned on the display using the 4-WAY Cursor Control key to determine the
depth of any sonar return. The RTS® Window continues to update in Freeze Frame.
In addition, see the effects of menu setting changes with Instant Image Update.
Pressing EXIT will exit Freeze Frame and the display will start to scroll. Freeze
Frame is available in the Sonar, Sonar Zoom, and 200/83 kHz Split Sonar Views.

Bottom Presentation
As the boat moves, the unit charts the changes in depth on the display to create
a profile of the Bottom Contour. The type of bottom can be determined from
the return charted on the display. A Hard Bottom such as compacted sediment
or flat rock appears as a thinner line across the display. A Soft Bottom such as
mud or sand appears as a thicker line across the display. Rocky Bottoms have
a broken, random appearance.

Sonar Zoom View
Sonar Zoom View increases the displayed resolution to separate sonar returns
that are very close together, such as those caused by fish suspended close to
the bottom or within structure. In Zoom View, the display is split to show a
narrow slice of the full range view on the right and the zoomed view on the left.
The full range view on the right also contains the Zoom Preview Box that shows
what part of the full range view is shown in zoom view on the left; the Zoom
Preview Box tracks the bottom in the full range view.
As the depth changes, the zoomed view updates automatically to display a
magnified image of the bottom. The Zoom Preview Box shows where the
zoomed view is in relation to the full range view. The Zoom Level, or
magnification, is displayed in the lower left corner and can be changed to suit
conditions (see Sonar X-Press™ Menu: Zoom Level). Upper and Lower Zoom
Depth Range numbers indicate the depth of the water which is being viewed.
Digital depth is displayed in the upper left hand corner. The digital readouts in
the Sonar Zoom View cannot be customized; therefore, information such as
water temperature and voltage are unavailable in the Sonar Zoom View.

NOTE: For snapshots and recordings, the indicator bar has several states: during recording,
the amount of space remaining on the MMC/SD card is indicated on the status bar. During
playback, the amount of time/memory remaining to play is indicated on the status bar.
When a snapshot thumbnail is highlighted, the amount of room remaining on the MMC/SD
card is indicated.
Screen Snapshot: When Screen Snapshot is enabled (from the Accessories
menu tab), pressing the MARK key creates a saved screen capture (when you
have an optional-purchase MMC/SD card installed). Once you have created a
screen capture, a screen capture thumbnail is added to the Snapshot and
Recording View, and is available to view at a later date. See the full-sized image
by highlighting a thumbnail (using the Up or Down 4-Way Cursor keys), then
using the Right 4-Way Cursor key to view the full image. A border around the
full-size screen snapshot indicates that it is just a screen snapshot, not a “live”
view. You can delete the selected image, or all images, by selecting a thumbnail
and using Delete Image, or using Delete All Images from the Snapshot and
Recording X-Press™ menu.
Working with screen snapshots is a four-step process:
1. Enabling Screen Snapshot from the Accessories Menu.
2. Making a Screen Snapshot using the MARK key.
3. Viewing a Screen Snapshot using the Snapshot and Recording View.
4. Deleting a Screen Snapshot using the Snapshot and Recording
X-Press™ menu.
For more information, see Accessories Menu Tab: Using Screen Snapshot and
Snapshot and Recording X-Press™ Menu.
When you start a screen snapshot, you will see a message that a waypoint has
been created at the point where your cursor is on the screen, and the screen
will freeze while the snapshot is being saved to the MMC/SD card. A status
dialog box will appear that shows the progress of the save as a percentage, and
that displays the numbered file name assigned to the .BMP file that is being
created. Snapshot filenames begin with the letter "S". For more information,
see Accessories Menu Tab: Using Screen Snapshot procedure and Snapshot
and Recording X-Press™ Menu.

Recording and Playback: From the Snapshot and Recording View, you can use
the X-Press™ menu to start and stop recording, and to change the pings per
second (which alters the detail level of the recording). Once you are recording
already, playing back a recording and screen snapshot viewing are not allowed,
and the only Sonar Recording menu choices available in the X-Press™ menu are
Stop Recording and Pings Per Second. Use the 4-Way Cursor keys from the
Snapshot and Recording View to start playback of a specific recording icon. You
can then cycle through all the views using the VIEW key to see what those views
looked like during the recorded time period. You can also use the X-Press™
menu to change playback speed, stop playback, and delete recording icons.
Working with sonar recordings is a six-step process:
1. Displaying the Snapshot and Recording View.
2. Starting a sonar recording using the Snapshot and Recording
X-Press™ menu.
3. Changing the maximum ping rate for the recording using the Snapshot
and Recording X-Press™ menu (optional).
4. Stopping a recording using the Snapshot and Recording X-Press™ menu.
5. Playing back a recording, using the Snapshot and Recording View and
the 4-Way Cursor keys, and changing the playback speed using the
Snapshot and Recording X-Press™ menu.
6. Deleting a recording using the Snapshot and Recording X-Press™ menu.
For more information, see Snapshot and Recording X-Press™ Menu.
When you start a sonar recording, you will see a message that a waypoint has
been created at your current location. During recording, playing back a
recording and screen snapshot viewing are not allowed. An information box
displays a variety of information including the numbered file name assigned to
the .SON file that is being created. The slider bar at the bottom of the screen
shows the progress of the recording as well as how much space is remaining
on the MMC/SD card.
NOTE: The waypoints that are created by a recording have the same name as the file and use
a custom waypoint icon. Recording filenames begin with the letter "R".
For more information, see Snapshot and Recording X-Press™ Menu.

View Orientation
Both Chart and Combo views allow you to choose the orientation of the view.
When North-Up orientation is selected, True North is shown at the top of the
display. In other words, objects located to the north of the boat are drawn above
the boat. When Course-Up orientation is selected, the direction of motion of the
boat is shown at the top of the display. In other words, objects ahead of the boat
are drawn above the boat. In both orientations, the view pans automatically, so
that the boat is always centered on the display. When the boat is stationary, it
is drawn as a circle. When the boat is in motion, it takes on a boat shape,
pointed in the direction of motion (always Up in the Course-Up orientation).
Viewing Cartography
In the Chart or Combo Views there are several cartography-related functions
that you can access using various keys.
Panning: Use the 4-WAY Cursor keys
to move the chart around on the
display in the direction of the key
being pressed. When you do this, a
bull's eye cursor is drawn at the
center of the screen and is linked to
the boat by a gray line, even if the
boat is off the screen. At the same
time, the temperature and speed
boxes in the lower left corner are
replaced with the distance and
bearing from the boat to the cursor
position and the latitude/longitude
coordinates of the cursor.
Zooming: Use the Plus (+) key to
Zoom In and the Minus (-) key to

amplified to reflect the scale selected. If you zoom in so far that no cartography
is available, a lat/long grid will be drawn instead.
Chart Info: Use the INFO key to get detailed information about the chart. If the
cursor is active, you will see information about the chart objects located near
the cursor. If the cursor is not active, the Chart Info menu will appear. You can
select the nearest port, the nearest tide station, or the nearest current station
to see information about any of these objects.
NOTE: The built-in UniMap™ does not contain any Port, Tide or Current information. This
information is only available from optional-purchase MMC/SD cards.
Nearest Port: The position and services information for the nearest port to your
present position will be displayed. Press the EXIT key to remove the information
box and the cursor bull’s eye will be centered over the port position. The cursor
information boxes at the bottom of the display will indicate the distance and
bearing to the port from your present position.
Nearest Tide Station: Tide information for the nearest tide station to your
present position will be displayed. This includes the position of the station and
the times of the high and low tides for today’s date. A tide graph is also
displayed showing the rise and fall of the tides for the 24 hour time period
encompassing the date. You can change the date to look at tide information
before or after the date displayed by pressing the LEFT or RIGHT cursor key
respectively. Press the EXIT key to remove the information box and the cursor
bull’s eye will be centered over the tide station position. The cursor information
boxes at the bottom of the display will indicate the distance and bearing to the
tide station from your present position.
Nearest Current Station: Current information for the nearest current station to
your present position will be displayed. This includes the position of the station
and the current changes for today. Two graphs are also presented that show the
time, direction and flow speed of the current changes for the 24 hour time
period of today’s date. You can change the date to look at current information
before or after the date displayed by pressing the LEFT or RIGHT cursor key
respectively. Press the EXIT key to remove the information box and the cursor
bull’s eye will be centered over the current station position. The cursor
information boxes at the bottom of the display will indicate the distance and

Introduction to Navigation
Use your Fishing System to establish waypoints at areas of interest and to
navigate to those waypoints via a savable route (representing the shortest
intended distance between waypoints). You can also view and save tracks,
which represent the actual path of the boat.
Waypoints, Routes and Tracks
Waypoints are stored positions that allow you to mark areas of interest or
navigation points. Your Fishing System can store up to 3000 waypoints.

Routes link two or more waypoints together to create a path for navigation, and
are used in trip planning. You can link individual waypoints together by using the
GOTO key. A route represents your intended navigation and shows the shortest
path from each waypoint to the next. As you travel a route, staying on the route
line is the most efficient way to get to your destination, although you should
always look out for obstacles not shown on the chart. Your 700 Series™ Fishing
System can store up to 50 routes that can each contain up to 50 waypoints.

Man Overboard (MOB) Navigation
As soon as you know that you have a man overboard, you should activate MOB
navigation to maximize chances for a successful rescue. MOB navigation
allows you create an MOB waypoint to locate the point at which your man went
overboard, and the relation of the boat to that point. When MOB is activated,
an MOB waypoint, which is a permanent, sharable waypoint with a large,
distinctive icon, is created at the boat's current position (regardless of whether
the chart cursor is active or not). Any current navigation will be cancelled and
the current route discarded without user notification, and MOB navigation will
begin immediately. A line will be drawn from the boat's current position to the
MOB waypoint, and the MOB waypoint will be targeted. The view is switched
to the Chart View automatically when MOB is activated, and an additional info
box that shows the lat/lon position of the MOB waypoint and the elapsed time
since MOB was activated is added to the Chart View.
It is not possible to re-activate MOB or modify the current route without first
canceling MOB navigation.. The Off Course trigger is also disabled and the Off
Course Alarm circle is not drawn. Any press of the GOTO key, or selection of a
GOTO menu item, will cause an error beep and a short message will be
displayed to the user that will disappear after 2 seconds.
Activate MOB navigation: Press and hold the GOTO key for more than 1.5
seconds to activate the Man Overboard (MOB) function.
Cancel MOB navigation: From the Navigation X-Press™ menu, select Cancel
MOB and press the RIGHT Cursor key. Canceling MOB navigation removes the
route and any waypoints created using the GOTO key, but does not remove any
saved routes from memory.

Start-Up Options Menu
Press the MENU key when the Title screen is displayed to access the Start-Up
Options menu.
Use the UP or DOWN 4-WAY Cursor keys to position the cursor, then the RIGHT
Cursor key to select one of the following choices. If you wait too long, the
system will default to whichever menu mode happens to be highlighted:
• Normal
• Simulator
• System Status
• PC Connect (use with PC Connect Cable).
See the following paragraphs for more information about each of these choices.
Normal Operation
Use Normal Operation for on the water operation with a transducer connected.
In addition, your Fishing System uses advanced transducer detection methods
to determine if a transducer is connected. If a functioning transducer is
connected, Normal operation will be selected automatically at power up and
your Fishing System can be used on the water.
Exit Normal operation by powering your Fishing System off.

Simulator
Use the Simulator to learn how to use your Fishing System before taking your
boat on the water. The Simulator is a very powerful tool that simulates on the
water operation, providing a randomly-updated display. We recommend going
through this manual while using the Simulator, since all of the menus function
and affect the display the way they actually do when in Normal operation.
NOTE: To get the full benefit of the Simulator, it is important to select Simulator manually
from the Start-Up Options menu as opposed to letting the Fishing System enter Simulator
automatically (as it will if a transducer is not connected and you do nothing during power up).
Manually selecting Simulator from the Start-Up Options menu allows you to pre-configure
your Fishing System for on the water operation. Any menu changes you make will be saved
for later use.
A message will appear on the display periodically to remind you that you are
using the Simulator.
Exit the Simulator by powering your Fishing System off.

GPS Diagnostic View
GPS Diagnostic View shows a sky chart and numerical data from the GPS
receiver. The sky chart shows the location of each visible GPS satellite with its
satellite number and a signal strength bar. A dark gray bar indicates that the
satellite is being used to determine your current position. A light orange bar
indicates that the satellite is being monitored, but is not yet being used.
This view also reports the current position, local time and date, and other
numeric information. The current GPS Fix Type is reported as No Fix, 2D Fix, 3D
Fix, or Enhanced. An Enhanced fix has been augmented using information from
WAAS, EGNOS, or MSAS. A 3D or Enhanced Fix is required for navigation.
HDOP (the Horizontal Dilution of Precision) is a GPS system parameter which
depends on the current satellite configuration. HDOP is used to calculate the
Estimated Position Error.

Sensitivity
Sensitivity controls how much detail is shown on
the display and will adjust the sensitivity of all sonar frequencies. Increasing
the sensitivity shows more sonar returns from small baitfish and suspended
debris in the water; however, the display may become too cluttered. When
operating in very clear water or greater depths, increased sensitivity shows
weaker returns that may be of interest. Decreasing the sensitivity eliminates
the clutter from the display that is sometimes present in murky or muddy water.
If Sensitivity is adjusted too low, the display may not show many sonar returns
that could be fish.
NOTE: The Sensitivity setting is a global setting and will adjust the sensitivity of all sonar
frequencies, as compared to specific sensitivity adjustments (such as 83 kHz Sensitivity,
455 kHz Balance or Wideside Sensitivity) which allow you to adjust the level of sensitivity for
one specific beam at a time.
Sensitivity at Low
Sensitivity at Medium
Sensitivity at High
To adjust the Sensitivity:
1. Highlight Sensitivity on the Sonar X-Press™ Menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to increase or
decrease the Sensitivity setting. (Low = 1, High = 20, Default = 10)

Upper Range
(Advanced: Sonar, Split Sonar, Big Digits and
Circular Flasher Views only)
Upper Range sets the shallowest depth range that will be displayed on the
Sonar, Split Sonar, Big Digits and Circular Flasher views. The Upper Range menu
choice is available when User Mode is set to Advanced (see Setup Menu Tab:
User Mode) and can only be accessed from the Sonar, Split Sonar, Big Digits
and Circular Flasher views. Upper Range is often used with Lower Range.
For example, if you are only interested in the area between 20 and 50 feet deep,
you should set the Upper Depth Range to 20 and the Lower Depth Range to 50.
The Sonar View will then show the 30 foot area between 20 and 50, and will not
show the surface or the bottom (assuming the bottom is deeper than 50 feet), and
will show greater detail for that area between 20 and 50 feet.
NOTE: A minimum distance of 10 feet will be maintained between the Upper and Lower
Range regardless of the manual settings entered.
To adjust the Upper Range:
1. Make sure you are in Advanced Mode, then highlight Upper Range on
the Sonar X-Press™ Menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to increase or
decrease the Upper Range setting. (0 to 1490 feet or 0 to 497 meters
[International Models only], Default = 0)

Lower Range
Lower Range sets the deepest depth range that
will be displayed. Automatic is the default setting. When in automatic mode,
the lower range will be adjusted by the unit to follow the bottom. Selecting a
specific setting locks the depth range into Manual mode. Use both Upper and
Lower Range together to view a specific depth range manually when looking
for fish or bottom structure. M will be displayed in the lower right corner of
the screen when you start manually adjusting the Lower Range to indicate that
you are in Manual mode.
For example, if you are fishing in 60 feet of water but are only interested in
the first 30 feet (surface to a depth of 30 feet) you should set the Lower
Depth Range limit to 30. The display will show the 0 to 30 foot range,
allowing you to see a more detailed view than you would see if the display
went all the way to the bottom.
NOTE: A minimum distance of 10 feet will be maintained between the Upper and Lower
Range regardless of the manual settings entered.
To adjust the Lower Range:
1. Highlight Lower Range on the Sonar X-Press™ Menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to increase or
decrease the Lower Range setting. (AUTO, 10 to 1500 feet, 3 to 500
meters [International Models only], Default = AUTO)

Side Beam Range
(WideSide® transducer: WideSide® view only)
Side Beam Range sets the deepest range that will be displayed in the
WideSide® View. The range must be set manually to keep the bottom visible on
the display. If the Side Beam Range is set too deep for current depth conditions
the sonar information will become compressed on the display and valuable
detail will be lost. A WideSide® transducer must be connected to the Fishing
System. Side Beam Range menu choice is available when Transducer Select is
set to WideSide® (see Sonar Menu Tab: Transducer Select) and can only be
accessed from the WideSide® view.
NOTE: The Side Beam Range requires the purchase of the WideSide® transducer. You can visit
our website at www.humminbird.com to order this accessory online or contact our Customer
Resource Center at 1-800-633-1468.
To adjust the Side Beam Range:
1. Make sure you are in WideSide® Transducer Mode, a WideSide®
transducer is connected and that you are in WideSide View, then
highlight Side Beam Range on the Sonar X-Press™ menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to increase or
decrease the Side Beam Range setting. (6 - 160 feet [2 - 50 meters]
[International Models only], Default = 160 feet [50 meters])

Chart Speed
Chart Speed determines the speed at which the
sonar information moves across the display, and consequently the amount of
detail shown. A faster speed shows more information and is preferred by most
anglers; however, the sonar information moves across the display quickly. A
slower speed keeps the information on the display longer, but the bottom and fish
details become compressed and may be difficult to interpret. Regardless of the
Chart Speed setting, the RTS® Window will update at the maximum rate possible
for the depth conditions. Adjust Chart Speed to your personal preference.
To adjust the Chart Speed:
1. Highlight Chart Speed on the Sonar X-Press™ Menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-Way Cursor Control keys to increase or
decrease the Chart Speed setting. (1-9, Ultra, where 1 = Slow, 9 = Fast,
Ultra = Fastest, Default = 5)
Quad Layout
(with Optional-Purchase QuadraBeam PLUS™
Transducer, Side Beam View only)
Quad Layout selects the method used to represent the sonar information from
the two side-looking beams plus the down-looking beam to be presented on
the Side Beam View, and is only available when an optional-purchase
QuadraBeam PLUS™ transducer is attached and the Side Beam View is active.
Use Quad Layout to change the way the Side Beam View is displayed. See Side
Beam View for more information.
To adjust the Quad Layout:
1. Highlight Quad Layout on the Sonar X-Press™ menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-Way Cursor Control keys to change the Quad
Layout setting for the Side Beam View. (Default, Classic, Slanted,
Default = Default)

Bottom Lock
(Sonar Zoom view only)
Bottom Lock changes the mode of the Zoomed view in the Sonar Zoom View.
Bottom Lock continuously graphs the bottom at a constant point on the display
regardless of changes in depth. This "flattens" out the bottom contour, but is
effective at showing fish on or near the bottom.
To turn on Bottom Lock:
1. In the Sonar Zoom View, highlight Bottom Lock on the Sonar X-Press™
Menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to change the
Bottom Lock setting to on. (Off, On, Default = Off)
Bottom Range
(Sonar Zoom view only when Bottom Lock is On)
Bottom Range allows you to control how much of the water column, measured
up from the bottom, is shown in the Sonar Zoom View. Choose a small value to
see low-lying bottom structure or details of the bottom return. Choose a larger
value to see large structure in deeper water. It is possible to set the Bottom
Range to be greater than the depth. In this case, you may see surface clutter in
a wavy band that mirrors changes in the depth.
To adjust the Bottom Range:
1. In the Sonar Zoom View, highlight Bottom Lock on the Sonar X-Press™
Menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to change the
Bottom Lock setting to on.
3. Once you turn on Bottom Lock, the Bottom Range X-Press™ menu
choice will be displayed. (10 - 60 feet, 2-10 fathoms, or 3-20 meters
[International Models only], Default = 15 feet)

Fish ID+™
Fish ID+™ uses advanced signal processing to
interpret sonar returns, and will display a Fish Symbol when very selective
requirements are met. When a fish is detected, a fish icon and its depth are
displayed above the return that has been classified as being a fish. Three different
fish size icons represent the intensity of the sonar return, and provide an indicator
of relative fish size.
DualBeam PLUS™ sonar models represent targets detected in the 200 kHz
narrow beam as Orange Fish Symbols, and represent targets detected in the
83 kHz wide beam as Blue Fish Symbols.
83 kHz, Wide Beam
Blue Fish Symbols
200 kHz, Narrow Beam
Orange Fish Symbols
When Fish ID+™ is turned off, the Fishing System shows only the raw sonar
returns on the display. These returns will often result in "arches" forming on the
display, indicating potential targets. Due to the transducer beam angle, the
distance to a fish decreases as the fish moves into the beam, and then
increases as it moves out again, creating a Fish Arch when this distance change
is shown on the display. Boat speed, chart speed, and the position of the fish
within the sonar beam greatly affect the shape of the arch.
Transducer Cone and Fish Arches
To turn Fish ID+ on or off:
1. Highlight Fish ID+ on the Sonar main menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to turn the Fish ID+™

Using Screen Snapshot
Screen Snapshot activates the screen snapshot
function. When Screen Snapshot is enabled, pressing the MARK key creates a
saved screen capture on the optional-purchase MMC/SD card installed in your
unit’s card slot. All menus, dialog boxes, warnings and messages are captured
and saved automatically.
Once you have created a screen capture, a screen capture thumbnail is added
to the Snapshot and Recording View, and is available to view at a later date.
See the full-sized image by highlighting a thumbnail (using the Up or Down 4Way Cursor keys), then using the Right 4-Way Cursor key to view the full image.
A border around the full-size screen snapshot indicates that it is just a screen
snapshot, not a “live” view. You can delete the highlighted image, or all images,
by selecting a thumbnail and using Delete Image, or using Delete All Images
from the Snapshot and Recording X-Press™ menu. You can view these captures
on the Snapshot and Recording View, which shows any existing thumbnails of
the screen captures, along with any icons representing sonar recordings.
NOTE: You must have an optional-purchase MMC/SD card installed for the Screen Snapshot
feature to work.
NOTE: If you use your MMC/SD card in two different Fishfinder units that have different
screen sizes, the recordings made on one unit will still be present on the card, but will be
represented by the Unavailable icon (circle with a slanted line through it) on the Snapshot and
Recording View on the other unit.
To turn Screen Snapshot on or off:
1. Highlight Screen Snapshot on the Accessories main menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to turn Screen
Snapshot On or Off (Off, On, Default = Off).
To make a screen snapshot (Screen Snapshot must be enabled):
1. Make sure you have installed an optional-purchase MMC/SD card into
your card slot.
2. From any view you want to capture, press the MARK key. When you
start a screen capture, you will see a message that a waypoint has
been created at the point where your cursor is on the screen, and the
screen will freeze while the snapshot is being saved to the MMC/SD

card. A status dialog box will appear that shows the progress of the
save as a percentage, and that displays the numbered file name
assigned to the .BMP file that is being created.
NOTE: For more information, see Snapshot and Recording View and Snapshot and
Recording X-Press™ Menu.
NOTE: Navigation is not affected by the Screen Snapshot feature. Also, if Screen Snapshot is
enabled but there is no GPS receiver connected, pressing the MARK key will capture the screen
image and display an error saying that a GPS position fix is required to create a waypoint.
NOTE: The speed of the capture depends on the type of card you use; in general, SD cards
capture the screen faster than MMC cards do.
To view screen snapshots:
1. Make sure that the optional-purchase MMC/SD card used to capture
the screen is installed in your card slot.
2. Press the VIEW key until you see the Snapshot and Recording View.
3. You can scroll through the whole list of captures in this view using the
4-WAY Cursor keys. Highlight a thumbnail (using the Up or Down 4Way Cursor keys), then use the Right 4-Way Cursor key to view the full
image. A border around the full-size screen capture indicates that it is
just a screen capture, not a “live” view. You can delete the highlighted
image, or all captured images, using the Snapshot and Recording XPress™ menu. (See Snapshot and Recording X-Press™ menu: Delete
Image and Delete All Images for more information).
NOTE: When you highlight a snapshot thumbnail, the amount of room remaining on the SD
card will be displayed.
NOTE: The waypoints that are created by a snapshot have the same name as the file and use
a custom waypoint icon. Snapshot filenames begin with the letter "S".
NOTE: You may view data files associated with each screen snapshot by removing the
MMC/SD card from your unit and installing it in your optional-purchase MMC/SD card reader
connected to a PC. Use Windows Explorer to see the contents of your MMC/SD card; you will
notice that a .DAT (may show up as .TXT) file is created for every .BMP screen capture; this
data file includes the thumbnail view, and is required in order to be able to view the screen
snapshot from your unit, so don’t delete these files.

Troubleshooting
Before contacting the Humminbird® Customer Resource Center, please read the
following section. Taking the time to review these troubleshooting guidelines
may allow you to solve a performance problem yourself, and therefore avoid
sending your unit back for repair.
Fishing System Doesn’t Power Up
If your Fishing System doesn’t power up, use the Installation Guide that also
comes with it for specific confirmation details, making sure that:
• The power cable is properly connected to the Fishing System control
head.
• The power cable is wired correctly, with red to positive battery terminal
and black to negative terminal or ground.
• The fuse is operational.
• The battery voltage of the power connector is at least 10 Volts.
Correct any known problems, including removing corrosion from the battery
terminals or wiring, or actually replacing the battery if necessary.
Fishing System Defaults to Simulator with a Transducer Attached
A connected and functioning transducer will cause the newly-started Fishing
System to go into Normal operating mode automatically. If, when you power up
the Fishing System, it goes into Simulator mode automatically, even though a
transducer is already connected, this means that the control head is not
detecting the transducer. Perform the following troubleshooting tasks:
• Using the Installation Guide that also comes with your Fishing System,
check to make sure that the transducer cable is securely connected to
the Fishing System. Reconnect if necessary, and power up the Fishing
System again to see if this fixes the problem.
• Replace the non-functioning transducer with a known good transducer
if available and power up the control head again.
• Check the transducer cable. Replace the transducer if the cable is
damaged or corroded.

Display Problems
There are several main conditions or sources of possible interference that may
cause problems with the quality of the information displayed on the control
head. Look in the following table for some symptoms of display problems and
possible solutions:
Problem
Possible Cause
The control head loses
power at high speeds.
If the power output of your boat’s engine is unregulated,
the control head may be protecting itself using its overvoltage protection feature. Make sure the input voltage
does not exceed 20 Volts.
When the boat moves
at higher speeds, the
bottom disappears or
suddenly weakens, or
the display contains
gaps.
The transducer position may need to be adjusted. A mix
of air and water flowing around the transducer
(cavitation) may be interfering with the interpretation of
sonar data. See your Installation Guide for suggestions on
adjusting the transducer position.
Electrical noise from the boat’s engine may be interfering
with sonar reception. See Finding the Cause of Noise for
more information.
There are no fish
detected, even when
you know they are in
the water under the
boat, or sonar readings
seem weak or faulty.
Sonar readings may be affected if the transducer is not
positioned correctly (i.e. mounted at an angle, not
straight down), or there is some kind of mechanical
interference, either because it is mounted inside a hull
that is too thick for proper sonar transmission, the bond
between the transducer and the hull is not airtight, or
because the transducer is dirty. Check with your
Installation Guide for guidance on re-positioning the
transducer, and make sure the transducer is clean.
Low battery voltage may be affecting the power of signal
transmission.
Electrical noise from the boat’s engine may be interfering
with sonar reception. See Finding the Cause of Noise for
more information.

www.reelschematic.com
Finding the Cause of Noise
Electrical noise usually affects the display with many black dots at high speeds,
and high sensitivity readings. One or more of the following sources can cause
noise or interference:
Possible Source of Noise
Isolation
Other electronic devices
Turn off any nearby electronic devices to see
if the problem goes away, then turn them on
one at a time to see if the noise re-appears.
The boat’s engine
To determine whether the boat’s engine is the
source of the noise, increase the RPMs while
the boat is in neutral and stationary to see if
the noise increases proportionately; if noise
appears when you rev the engine, the
problem could be the spark plugs, alternator,
or tachometer wiring. Replace the spark plugs
with resistor plugs, install an alternator filter,
or route the control head power and
transducer cables away from the engine
wiring.
Cavitation from the boat’s
propeller
Turbulence created by the propeller can cause
noise; make sure the transducer is mounted at
least 15” (38 cm) from the propeller, and that
the water flows smoothly over the face of the
transducer at all times.

Glossary
Sonar Terms:
Alarm, Depth: Depth Alarm is a user-controllable, audible alert that sounds
when depth is less than or equal to the setting.
Alarm, Temperature: Temperature Alarm is a user-controllable, audible alert
that sounds when the water surface temperature equals the setting.
Backlight: Backlight is a user-controllable illumination for the LCD for night and
low light use.
Beam (Sonar Beam): A sonar beam is the wide, cone-shaped projection of
sound waves formed as sound travels underwater. See Cone Angle.
Big Digits View: Big Digits View is a Humminbird® feature that displays the sonar
graph and enlarged digital readouts for easy reading from a distance. This is a
great tool when monitoring the digital depth is important - such as with higher
boat speeds, or when viewing the unit from a distance. When speed input is
available, the Big Digits View also shows the TripLog. See TripLog.
Bottom Black: Bottom Black is a Humminbird® feature that "fills in" the area of
the display below the bottom contour. Bottom Black is preferred by some
anglers because of its high contrast and easy readability, even though it can
obscure bottom hardness information.
Bottom Contour: Bottom Contour is the profile of the bottom graphed to the
display as the depth changes.
Bottom Hardness: Bottom Hardness is the density (or composition) of the
bottom, which can often be determined by interpreting the main sonar return.
Varying levels of hardness can be determined by interpreting the "thickness" of
the sonar return. Hard returns appear thin and black, softer returns appear
thicker and less black. It is important to note that a sonar return from a sloping
bottom can have the appearance of a softer bottom.
Cavitation: Cavitation is the effect of air bubbles created as the propeller
rotates and the boat moves through the water.

Chart Speed: Chart Speed is a user-controllable feature that sets the speed at
which sonar information moves across the display. A faster setting displays
sonar information from more pings and shows more detail, but the information
moves quickly across the display: a slower setting permits viewing of more
sonar history, but does not display as much detail. The best setting is often the
user's personal choice.
Cone Angle: The cone angle is the angular measurement of the sonar beam at
a specific dB down point (i.e. -10 dB). See dB Down Point.
Customizable Digital Readouts: Customizable Digital Readouts is a
Humminbird® feature that permits the user to select the specific digital
information that appears in the main Sonar view (i.e. Speed, Temperature,
Barometric Pressure, TripLog, etc.)
Dead Zone: The dead zone is the area of the sonar beam that receives the sonar
signal after the main bottom return. Fish and other objects close to the bottom
that fall within the dead zone will probably not be visible in the sonar beam.
Precision sonar beams, such as the Humminbird® 20° beam, have a smaller
dead zone than wider sonar beams.
Decibel: A Decibel is the measurement for sound pressure level, or "intensity"
of the sonar return. See dB Down Point.
dB Down Point: The dB Down Point is the standard decibel level at which the
sonar cone angle is measured, and is written as "@ -10 dB" or "@ -3 dB".
Measurements at smaller down points (bigger negative numbers) indicate that
the less intensive sonar signals are being used for the measurement.
Display, FSTN: FSTN is an acronym for Film Super-Twist Nematic. FSTN is a
monochrome display technology characterized by black, high-contrast pixels.
All monochrome fixed mount Humminbird® products use FSTN technology.
DualBeam PLUS™: DualBeam PLUS™ is a Humminbird® sonar configuration
that uses two sonar beams simultaneously, and combines the information from
both beams into one view by overlapping the data on-screen, or shows each
beam individually side by side, or permits each beam to be viewed individually
full screen.

Feature Memory: Feature Memory is a Humminbird® feature that retains the
user's menu settings in permanent memory. Settings are retained even when the
unit is powered off indefinitely.
Fish Arch: A Fish Arch is the apparent "arch" that appears on the display when
any object moves through the sonar cone. The arch results from a gradual
decrease in distance to an object as it moves into the sonar cone. The distance to
an object changes due to the conical shape of the sonar beam, which causes the
distance to be greater at the edges of the beam than at the center of the beam.
When this distance change is graphed on the display, an arch appears.
Fish ID+™: Fish ID+™ is a Humminbird® feature that uses advanced sonar
processing algorithms to determine if a detected object is likely to be a fish. When
the sonar signal from an object meets strict parameters, the unit draws a Fish
Symbol (or icon) and the digital depth of the target. On DualBeam and DualBeam
PLUS™ units, fish detected in the narrow center beam are shown as shaded
symbols, and fish detected in the wider beam are shown as hollow symbols.
Fish Symbol: A Fish Symbol is the graphic that is displayed on the screen when
Fish ID+ determines that a sonar return is likely to be a fish. See Fish ID+.
Freeze Frame: Freeze Frame is a Humminbird® feature that pauses the sonar
scrolling so that the image on screen can be studied with greater detail. See
Instant Image Update.
Frequency: Frequency is a measure of the number of sound wave cycles per
second of a sound impulse transmitted underwater. A typical frequency for
fishfinders is 200 kHz, which offers a good balance of performance under many
conditions. Lower frequencies, such as 50 kHz, are capable of penetrating to
greater depths, but with less resolution. Higher frequencies, such as 455 kHz, offer
greater resolution, but are limited in depth performance. Humminbird® uses a
variety of frequencies that are optimized for specific applications.
Grayscale: Grayscale is the use of varying shades of gray to represent the
strength of the sonar signal on the display , and is a very intuitive method of
presenting information. Traditionally, the strongest sonar signals are
represented in black, and progressively weaker signals are represented in
progressively lighter shades of gray.

www.reelschematic.com
Grayscale, Inverse: Inverse Grayscale is a Humminbird® feature that reverses the
correlation of sonar signal strength and the shade of gray typically used to
represent it. The strongest sonar signals are represented by "white", and
progressively weaker signals are represented in progressively darker shades of
gray. While somewhat counter-intuitive, this method makes the sonar images
crisper, and has the benefit of enhancing the apparent sensitivity because the
weaker signals appear bolder. Inverse grayscale works well in very clear water.
Debris-laden water often appears as a lot of clutter on the screen.
Instant Image Update: Instant Image Update is a Humminbird® feature that
updates all the sonar information on the display when Sensitivity and a variety of
sonar settings (Bottom View, Range, etc.) are modified. This differs from the
traditional functionality that only updates the new sonar information collected
after the setting change. Instant Image Update permits more accurate fine-tuning
of the display because the user can see the results on the complete sonar graph.
When combined with the Freeze Frame feature, the user can adjust and
understand the effects of many different sonar settings quickly and easily.
Maximum Depth Menu: The Maximum Depth Menu is a Humminbird® feature
that optimizes performance based on the maximum operational depth set by the
user. Many Humminbird® units can operate across a very broad depth range (up
to 2500 feet) which causes the unit to "look" up to that full depth under some
circumstances. Due to the speed of sound in water, this can result in less
responsiveness because the unit has to wait for a longer period of time to receive
the sonar signal. When the Maximum Depth menu is set to a lower value, the unit
only looks up to the setting, which increases the responsiveness of the unit. This
is an important feature for anyone operating in shallower depths!
Noise: Noise is unintentional, external sound waves that interfere with the optimal
operation of sonar. Noise appears as random "dots" on the display, and is caused
by a variety of sources. Electrical noise (from trolling motors, bilge pumps, VHF
radios) typically manifests as a consistent dot pattern. Electrical noise can be
isolated by selectively turning on and off other electrical devices to determine the
source. Often re-routing the power cable, or connecting to an alternative power
supply (second battery) can help overcome electrical noise. Hydrodynamic noise
(from propeller and/or hull cavitation) has a more random appearance and is
generally related to boat speed, so that faster operation results in more noise.

www.reelschematic.com
Hydrodynamic noise can be overcome by proper transducer installation. Many
Humminbird® products have a Noise Filter menu setting that allows the user to
clear the screen of noise that is difficult to eliminate.
Pixels: Pixels are the "picture elements", or small square blocks, that make
up the image on the LCD. Measured as a vertical by horizontal number
(i.e. 640V x 320H), this key specification typically indicates the quality of
resolution. In fishfinders, the total resolution (vertical multiplied by horizontal)
is often less important than the "Vertical Pixel" resolution. See Pixels, Vertical.
Pixels, Vertical: Vertical Pixels are a number of vertical picture elements in a
single column on an LCD display. A greater number of vertical pixels provide finer
resolution of targets detected by sonar. Essentially, a vertical distance (the depth),
when divided by a larger number, breaks that distance into smaller samples, each
representing a smaller area and thus providing more detail. In fishfinders, vertical
pixels are more critical than horizontal pixels because the horizontal axis of the
display represents time, or history. Sonar information on the horizontal axis can
vary greatly, depending on boat speed and the Chart Speed setting. A greater
number of horizontal pixels show more sonar history that the boat has passed
through. On many models, Humminbird® provides the most vertical pixels to
provide a better display resolution. See Chart Speed and Pixels.
Power Output: Power output is the amount of sound energy emitted into the
water by the sonar transmitter. Power output is measured using either RMS (Root
Mean Square) or P-T-P (Peak-to-Peak) measurement systems. Either method is
acceptable, but it is important, when comparing power outputs, to make sure that
the same measurement system is being used for both outputs, because P-T-P
numbers are 8 times higher than RMS numbers. Greater power output allows the
sonar signal to penetrate through weeds and thermoclines, reach deeper depths
and operate more effectively in noisy environments, such as when the boat is
running at high speed.
Pulse Width (Pulse Length): Pulse Width is the length of time that a sonar sound
burst is transmitted into the water. Shorter pulse widths provide better target
separation, but cannot travel to great depths. Longer pulse widths provide better
depth penetration, but result in poorer target separation. Humminbird® varies
pulse width based on depth to optimize both target separation and depth
performance. See Target Separation.

QuadraBeam PLUS™: QuadraBeam PLUS™ is a Humminbird® sonar
configuration that uses four sonar beams for a more detailed bottom image.
QuadraBeam PLUS™ uses the DualBeam PLUS™ configuration for downlooking,
and also adds two additional beams to look to the left and right. The sonar beams
pointing to the left and right provide the ability to spot fish and structure over a
wide 90° area, and to identify on which side of the boat they are located. See
DualBeam PLUS™.
Quick Disconnect Mount: The Quick Disconnect Mounting system is an
exclusive Humminbird® feature that permits the unit to be easily removed from
the mounting base by pressing a release button, and re-installed by simply
snapping it back into place. All cable connections are made when installing, so
that no separate wiring connections are required. Additionally, the mount offers
90° tilt and 360° swivel capability to adjust the viewing angle of the unit as you
move about the boat.
Real Time Sonar: Real Time Sonar is a Humminbird® technology that delivers
ultra-fast sonar transmitter/receiver operation and results in a more detailed
instantaneous view of what is under the boat. The Real Time Sonar window
is a vertical band at the right side of the display that shows the instantaneous
sonar return from the transducer at a particular instant. The RTS® Window
menu option permits the user to adjust the window to show the full sonar
signal return, or just a narrower band that indicates intensity using grayscale.
Real Time Sonar relies on very fast Sonar Update Rate (Ping Speed). See
Sonar Update Rate.
Receiver: See Transmitter.
Second Return: The Second Return is a term that describes the appearance of
a second sonar return below the primary sonar return (bottom contour) at
exactly twice the true depth. The second return is caused by the same sonar
energy bouncing off the bottom once, rebounding to the water surface and
then traveling back down to the bottom to be reflected again. Second returns
are more common in shallow water and over hard bottoms; it is actually
possible to see a third sonar return under some circumstances. The second
return provides useful information to help determine bottom hardness, as areas
with harder bottoms will generally create a second return. The second return
can be used as a guide to set Sensitivity when in shallower water.

Sensitivity: Sensitivity is a user feature that adjusts the sensitivity of the sonar
system to show more or less detail in the water. Higher sensitivities are often
preferred, however, when the water contains debris (silt, storm debris, etc.) and it
can be difficult to pick out targets. Conversely, if sensitivity is set too low, relevant
targets may be missed.
SONAR: SONAR is the acronym for SOund and NAvigation Ranging. Sonar
technology uses precision sound bursts transmitted underwater to determine the
distance and other attributes of objects in the water. Distance can be determined
because the speed of sound in water is constant, and the time for the signal to
return is measured. Sound also travels very quickly underwater, making sonar a
responsive, cost-effective tool. Sonar is the basic technology behind all
recreational and commercial fishfinding and depthfinding devices.
Sonar Echo Enhancement: Sonar Echo Enhancement is a Humminbird® feature that
describes the high degree of sonar sensitivity achieved through a combination of
transmitter/receiver and software algorithms. The result of Sonar Echo Enhancement
is to display virtually everything in the water that is of interest to the angler, including
bait fish, game fish, thermoclines, weed beds, subtle structure, and more.
Sonar Update Rate: Sonar Update Rate is the number of times per second that
the transmitter/receiver sends and receives sonar signals. A very fast sonar update
rate collects more information and provides a more detailed image of the bottom,
fish and structure. Many Humminbird® units operate at up to 40 times per second
when in single frequency operation. Due to the limitation of the speed of sound in
water, the update rate begins to slow as depth increases to deeper than 50 feet.
In very shallow water (less than 10 feet), however, update rates as much as 60
times per second can be achieved.
Speed: Speed is the rate at which the boat moves through the water. Boat speed
can be measured as Speed Over Ground or Speed Through Water. Speed Over
Ground is provided by GPS, and is the measurement of the boats progress across
a given distance. Speed Through Water is provided by a speed paddlewheel, and
is the measurement of the flow past the boat, which may vary depending on
current speed and direction. Speed Through Water is most critical for anglers
using downriggers, as it impacts the running depth of the down riggers. Speed
Over Ground is optimal for navigation, as accurate destination times can be
derived from this measurement. Humminbird® products allow for input and
display of both sources.

Structure: Structure is a general term for objects on the bottom that present a
discontinuity and are a likely attractor for fish. This includes bottom contour
features (drop-offs, humps, and holes), standing structure (stumps, timbers, brush
piles) and a wide range of other potential objects (sunken boats, reefs).
Humminbird® units excel at showing structure with great detail over a wider area
due to unique sonar configurations developed for the angler.
Structure ID®: Structure ID® is a Humminbird® feature that describes the
traditional grayscale method of presenting sonar information. See Grayscale.
Surface Clutter: Surface Clutter is a phenomenon where sonar returns are
reflected off of tiny objects near the surface of the water, including algae and even
air bubbles. Typically, saltwater environments have significantly greater surface
clutter than freshwater due to continuous wind and wave action that causes
aeration at the surface. The Surface Clutter menu provides manual control to bias
the default settings under extreme conditions.
Target Separation: Target Separation is the measurement of minimum distance that
a fishfinder needs to be able to recognize two very close objects as two distinct
targets (i.e. two fish hanging very close, or a fish hanging very close to structure).
Humminbird® fishfinders provide a very good 2 1/2 inches of target separation in
shallower than 100 feet of depth. Target separation decreases as depth increases
due to the need for longer Pulse Width to achieve greater depth. See Pulse Width.
Thermoclines: Thermoclines are water layer(s) of distinctly different temperatures
that create a sonar reflection due to the density of the differing water
temperatures. Typically a thermocline will appear as a continuous band across the
display at some distance above the bottom contour. Thermoclines are of interest
to anglers because fish will suspend above or below the thermocline as they seek
the optimum temperature and oxygen levels.
Time Variable Gain: Time Variable Gain is a processing step applied to the sonar
return to "normalize" the data so that objects of equal size (i.e. fish) appear to be
the same size, even if they are separated by a good distance. Time Variable Gain
is a fundamental attribute of good sonar, but is often promoted as a feature.
Total Screen Update®: A Humminbird® feature that refreshes and updates all the
sonar information on the display when a range change occurs. Without Total
Screen Update®, only the most recent sonar information would be drawn to the

new range, and the old sonar information would continue to scroll off the screen
at the old range.
Transducer: The transducer is part of the sonar system, which mounts on the
boat and is in contact with the water, that converts the electrical energy from
the transmitter into sound energy, and that forms the sonar beam in turn.
Internally, the transducer consists of one or more piezo electric disks that
expand by very minute amounts to create the sound wave. This element also
works in reverse, converting the returned sound energy back into an electrical
signal that the receiver interprets. Transducers are available for many specific
mounting applications for the boat, such as a transom mount, trolling motor
mount, etc. Humminbird® offers many sophisticated transducers, often with
multiple piezo electric elements designed to form specifically-shaped sonar
beams, providing the angler with superior tools for finding and catching fish.
See Transmitter and SONAR.
Transmitter: The transmitter and receiver are matched parts of the sonar system
that send (transmit) and listen to (receive) the sonar signals, and work in
conjunction with the transducer. Humminbird® transmitters have an extremely fast
cycling design that can send signals up to 60 times per second, as well as produce
the varying levels of power output needed for different depths and conditions.
Additionally, the transmitter has the capability to create very precise sonar pulses
needed for a high degree of target separation. Humminbird® receivers are
extremely sensitive, but within a narrow "bandwidth" to discriminate against
noise from external sources. Additionally, the receiver offers a wide "dynamic
range" which provides the ability to receive very strong signals alternating with
very weak signals, without the strong signal overwhelming the weak signal.
See Transducer and Noise.
TripLog: TripLog is a Humminbird® feature that provides an on-screen counter for
Elapsed Time, Average Speed and Total Distance traveled, and requires a speed
input to activate the feature. TripLog appears on the Big Digits View, and can be
reset to zero through the TripLog menu.
TrueArch®: TrueArch® is a Humminbird® feature that provides true fish arches, not
artificial arches or symbols. Humminbird® units are capable of producing fish
arches due to the wide 60° sonar beam of DualBeam PLUS™, an extremely
sensitive sonar receiver. See Fish Arch.

Viewing Angle: Viewing Angle is an attribute of an LCD that characterizes visibility
of the display when viewing from off the central access, such as when standing
to the side of the fishfinder. Wider viewing angles are better because the
information remains visible even when viewing from the side.
WhiteLine®: WhiteLine® is a Humminbird® feature that highlights the
strongest sonar return on the display using a very light gray band. This is
preferred by some anglers who have grown accustomed to the feature on
paper graph chart recorders.
WideSide®: WideSide® is a Humminbird® sonar configuration used in an optional
transducer. WideSide® uses three sonar beams pointing to the left, right and
down. Beams pointing to the left and right are effective for spotting fish and
structure near the surface or on the bank. The downlooking beam provides depth
information directly below the boat.
X-Press™ Menu: X-Press™ Menus are a Humminbird® feature that make the
most commonly-used menu selections available with one press of the MENU key.
Items that appear on the X-Press™ Menu are related to the current view, and
present the most logical choices for that view. Sonar View X-Press™ menus will
differ from Chart View X-Press™ menus, etc. X-Press™ menus are one of the
principal reasons that Humminbird® products are easier to use.
Zoom: Zoom is a feature that focuses in on a smaller area of the bottom to provide
enhanced resolution. With enhanced resolution, the angler can more easily see
fish hanging in structure or multiple fish hanging close together. Split screen zoom
divides the display into the full range view on the right, and the zoomed view on
the left. Humminbird® offers One-Touch® Zoom which allows the zoom feature to
be easily accessed from the regular sonar view with just one key press, eliminating
the need to use menus to access the feature.
Zoom, Bottom Lock: Bottom Lock Zoom is a feature that focuses on a smaller area
just above the bottom to provide enhanced resolution. Unlike regular zoom, it
continuously graphs the bottom at a constant point on the display regardless of
changes in depth. This "flattens" out the bottom contour, but is effective at
showing fish on or near the bottom, and is preferred by many saltwater anglers.

GPS & Navigation Terms:
Acquisition Time: The length of time that a GPS receiver typically takes to
determine a position from at least three satellites. Humminbird® GPS receivers
provide very fast acquisition times (under one minute), permitting users to get out
on the water faster.
Alarm, Arrival: The audible alert that sounds when the boat is equal to or less than
the alarm setting (25 feet – 3000 feet) from the location of the destination waypoint.
Alarm, Drift: Drift Alarm is an audible alert that sounds when the boat is equal to
or over the alarm setting (25 feet – 3000 feet) from the location where the alarm
was turned on.
Alarm, Off-Course: Off-Course Alarm is an audible alert that sounds when the
boat’s distance from the intended Track, (Cross Track Error), is equal to or over the
alarm setting (25 feet – 3000 feet). See Track and Cross Track Error.
Altitude: Altitude measures height above sea level. Altitude is a measurement that
can be provided by GPS.
Bearing (BRG): Bearing is the direction to a destination waypoint measured in
degrees from North (i.e. 321°, where 000° is North, 090° East, 180° is South,
270° is West).
Chartplotter: Chartplotter describes a navigation device that shows Present
Position on a Map, along with Tracks, Waypoints, and Routes. All Chartplotters are
also considered Trackplotters. All Humminbird® GPS Combo units are
Chartplotters. See Trackplotter.
Cold Start: Cold Start refers to the procedure that a GPS receiver must perform
when it does not have historical information regarding its current location. This
procedure typically lasts for several minutes, and may be experienced upon first
power up of the receiver, or if the receiver has been moved a great distance.
Course Over Ground (COG): Course Over Ground is the current direction the boat
is traveling measured in degrees from North (i.e. 321°, where 000° is North, 090°
East, 180° is South, 270° is West). When the Course Over Ground is equal to
Bearing, the boat is said to be “On Course” and will arrive at the destination in the
most efficient manner. COG is often confused with Heading. See Heading.

Cross Track Error (XTE): Cross Track Error is the straight-line distance of the boat
from the intended Track. XTE measures how far the boat is off course, and also
triggers the Off Course Alarm. See Track.
Differential GPS (DGPS): Differential GPS is a system to improve the position
accuracy of the Department of Defense GPS through the use of secondary
“correction signals” broadcast from ground stations around the coastal United
States and on some inland waterways. These correction signals are provided by
the USCG and received by an auxiliary Differential Beacon Receiver (DBR) that
connects to the GPS receiver. The advent of WAAS has largely negated the need
for the added expense of a DBR in the United States.
Distance To Go: Distance To Go is the straight-line distance between Present
Position and the Destination Waypoint. DTG and SOG (Speed Over Ground) are
used to calculate Time To Go. See Time to Go and Speed Over Ground.
Estimated Position Error (EPE): Estimated Position Error is a calculation that
indicates the potential position inaccuracy the user may experience due to a
variety of GPS factors which include satellite position in the sky, signal strength
and others factors.
Fix Type: Fix Type indicates whether the GPS receiver is providing 2D fix or 3D fix. A
2D fix requires only three satellites and provides only latitude and longitude. A 3D fix
requires four or more satellites, and provides latitude, longitude and altitude.
GPS: GPS is an acronym for Global Positioning System. GPS provides accurate
position (latitude, longitude, altitude) information virtually anywhere on the earth
through satellite technology and personal receivers on the ground. A series of
geosynchronous satellites broadcast a unique signal toward the earth once per
second. A GPS receiver, such as that included with many Humminbird® products,
receives the signals from these satellites and is able to determine position based
on very slight differences in the time each signal is received and the receiver’s
knowledge of the location of each of the satellites.
Heading: Heading describes the direction the boat is pointing and is measured in
degrees (i.e. 321°, where 000° is North, 090° East, 180° is South, 270° is West).
Due to wind and waves, the boat is often traveling in a slightly different direction
than it is heading, and therefore Heading is often confused with Course Over
Ground. See Course Over Ground.

Map Datum: A Map Datum refers to a particular survey of the earth’s surface that
was referenced when creating a chart (i.e. WGS84). Since the earth is not flat, and
not even consistently round, a mathematical model must be used to translate
coordinates from the sphere of the earth to the flat surface of a chart. This
mathematical model is the Map Datum. Historically, many different Map Datums
have been used around the world to create maps; often a reference to the Map
Datum can be found in the legend of a paper map. It is important to select the
correct Map Datum setting in your fishfinder when comparing GPS position to a
paper chart to avoid slight position inaccuracies. Almost all electronic charts use
the WGS84 Map Datum and therefore, they do not require setting changes.
MMC: MMC is an acronym for Multi Media Card. An MMC is a postage stampsized memory device used to store electronic data such a maps, waypoints, routes
and other information. MMC is a very rugged format suitable for the marine
environment, but it is not waterproof. The MMC is removable from Humminbird®
products, and can be used in a PC that is equipped with an appropriate card
reader. MMC is the same format that many digital cameras use. See SD.
North, Magnetic: North is the principle reference point of the compass (i.e. North
is 000°). Magnetic North relies on the earth’s magnetic field to align a metal
pointer generally towards True North. However, due to local variations in the
earth’s magnetic field around the globe, the difference between True North and
Magnetic North can be greater than 10°. See True North.
North, True: North is the principle reference point of the compass (i.e. North is
000°). True North uses the axis of the rotation of the earth as the reference for
North and is constant for all points on the earth. Most GPS units default to True
North as the setting. The GPS heading may vary from the boat compass heading
because the compass uses Magnetic North. Humminbird® GPS units provide the
option of selecting True or Magnetic readouts by using the North Reference menu.
See Magnetic North.
Present Position: Present Position is the current location (latitude, longitude)
determined by GPS. The Present Position is indicated on-screen by a directional
boat icon if the boat is moving, or a round symbol if the boat is stationary.
Route: A Route is series of waypoints linked together in a specific sequence to
define a navigation path between two points, and saved in the fishfinder’s

memory. Routes are often used when frequently traveling between two or more
locations because it is a faster and more accurate method than repeatedly
selecting individual waypoints each time one travels through the same area.
Routes consist of a Start Waypoint, an End Waypoint, and a series of waypoints
in between. Users can begin navigation at the beginning, the end (to run the route
in reverse) or at any waypoint in between. See Waypoint.
SD: SD is an acronym for Secure Digital. An SD card is virtually identical in
function to an MMC; however, the speed at which information can be accessed is
generally faster, the storage capacity is generally larger, and the card has security
features which can be used to prevent extracting the data from the card. SD is the
same format that many digital cameras use. See MMC.
Selective Availability: Selective Availability (SA) is a GPS system “feature” that
can be implemented by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to degrade the
accuracy of GPS positioning information. With SA active, the GPS is accurate to
within 100 meters 95% of the time. With SA inactive, the GPS is accurate to within
45 meters 95% of the time. Currently, SA is inactive and the consumer can enjoy
the greater precision GPS provides; however, the DoD reserves the right to activate
SA at any time.
Speed Over Ground (SOG): Speed Over Ground is the measurement of the boat’s
progress across a given distance, and is the speed measurement provided by GPS.
An alternate, Speed Through Water, is provided by a speed paddlewheel, and is
the measurement of the flow past the boat, which may vary depending on current
speed and direction. Speed Over Ground is optimal for navigation because
accurate destination times can be derived from this measurement. Humminbird®
products allow for input and display of both speed measurements.
Time To Go (TTG): Time To Go is the estimated time required to reach the destination
waypoint. TTG is calculated using the SOG and DTG. See SOG and DTG.
Track: A Track is a series of saved points that define the past path of the boat.
These Track Points are saved at regular time intervals. Tracks are a useful and quick
method to see where you’ve been, and an easy guide to follow to get you back to
the starting point. Generally, all GPS units have a limited number of Track Points
that can be saved before the unit runs out of memory and begins erasing the first
track points saved. Because of this, the user can adjust the Track Point Interval

menu to increase the amount of time between when points are saved, and thus
extend the distance covered by a track. Tracks can also be permanently saved to
memory, and re-displayed at the user’s option.
Track Line (TRK): The Track Line is the desired line of travel between two
waypoints, and represents the most efficient path between the two points
because it is a straight line. The TRK is measured in degrees (i.e. 321°, where 000°
is North, 090° East, 180° is South, 270° is West). See Cross Track Error and
Course Over Ground.
Trackplotter: Trackplotter describes a navigation device that shows Present
Position, along with Track, Waypoint, and Routes, but NO MAP in the background.
See Chartplotter.
Trolling Grid: Trolling Grid is a Humminbird® feature that displays a precise
reference grid around a waypoint. This grid is used as a guide pattern for trolling
around a specific area to assure a more efficient and complete coverage of that
area. Trolling Grid resolution be changed by zooming in or out on the chart. The
Trolling Grid can also be rotated on the display to orient it for optimal boat course
for wave and wind conditions.
UTC: UTC is an acronym for Universal Time Constant. UTC is the “standard time”
used in navigation, and is the local time in Greenwich England. (UTC is equivalent
to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)). To display the correct Local Time in a
Humminbird® GPS unit, the user must use the Local Time Zone menu and select
the time zone (i.e. EST, CST).
WAAS: WAAS is an acronym for Wide Area Augmentation System. WAAS is
complementary technology to GPS that provides enhanced accuracy through
correction signals broadcast from Federal Aviation Administration WAAS satellites
stationed over the USA. These secondary signals are automatically received by the
standard Humminbird® GPS Receiver. With WAAS signal, GPS accuracy is
improved to within 3 meters 95% of the time. Outside the United States, regional
governmental coalitions have created similar systems such as EGNOS (Europe)
and MSAS (Japan).
Waypoint: A Waypoint is the saved location (latitude, longitude) of a point of
interest that is stored in a GPS receiver’s memory. This can include a marker buoy,

dock, fishing hole or anywhere else the user may want to return to. Humminbird®
products offer the ability to name and assign a symbol to the saved location.
Depth, Date and Time of Day when the waypoint was created is also saved.
Waypoint Target: Waypoint Target is a Humminbird® feature that displays a
precise “bull’s eye” around a selected waypoint. This bull’s eye is used to easily
monitor boat position relative to a waypoint, and is useful for fishing over
submerged structure. With Waypoint Targets, a quick look at the screen lets you
know how far off the waypoint the boat has drifted.
