Installing the Portable Case On the Boat
Since the portable case has a large non-skid mounting surface, it may be attached
to almost any surface.
In this section, you will route the cables on the boat, connect the transducer and
power cables to the portable case, and attach the portable case to a dry and
convenient location on your boat.
1. Connecting the Transducer and Power Cables
to the Portable Case
1. Make sure the large opening in the front of the portable case is
unzipped; you may want to roll up the flap and secure it with the
provided strap and clip while you’re working.
2. Plug the transducer cable into the jumper port in the portable case to the
left of the control head, as you face the front of the bag (see the
illustration Plugging in the Transducer).

3. Turn the portable case around so
that you can access the back, and
open the back zipper. Connect the
spade clip on the red wire of the
power cable to the red terminal on
the battery, and the spade clip on
the black wire of the power cable
to the black terminal on the
battery. Make sure that the spade
clips are snugly attached to the
terminals (see the illustration
Connecting the Spade Clips).
Connecting the Spade Clips
4. Make sure the back battery door
and side pockets are zipped, but
leave the front of the bag unzipped
for easy access during installation.
2. Attaching the Portable Case to the Boat
1. Attach the portable case to a surface on the boat by threading rope or
bungee cord (not provided) through the D-rings on either side of the
portable case.
NOTE: Humminbird® recommends that you do NOT position the portable case on the
bottom of the boat, or in a location where it can be splashed by or immersed in water,
as the portable case is water resistant, but not waterproof.
13
Mounting the Portable Transducer
Once your Portable fishfinder is fully assembled (see the Portable Case Assembly
section for more information), it takes just a few easy steps before you are ready
to fish:
• Test the transducer prior to installation
• Mount the portable transducer on the boat
1. Testing the Transducer Prior to Installation
Prior to installation, test the transducer to make sure that no damage occurred
during shipping.
1. Hold the transducer in the water over the side of the boat to confirm
proper operation. If the transducer is working properly, you should be
able to see the bottom on the control head display.
2. Mounting the Portable Transducer on the Boat
Perform the procedures in this section to install the transducer on your boat.
NOTE: The suction cup mount is designed for quick, easy installation and removal,
NOT for high speed operation. If you intend to operate your boat at any speed faster
than trolling speeds, remove the suction cup transducer from the water.
It is important that the mounting position allows the transducer to rest beneath
the surface of the water, pointing straight down. You can mount the transducer
anywhere on the side of the boat if your boat remains stationary. If you are trolling,
it is best to mount the transducer on the transom of the boat.
Your portable transducer is designed to be installed and adjusted without the use
of tools. Mounting the transducer to the boat is a simple yet important operation.
A poor mounting location will affect the overall performance of the Humminbird®
unit, so follow the mounting instructions carefully. It is important that the mounting
position allows the transducer to rest beneath the surface of the water, pointing
straight down. You can mount the transducer anywhere on the side of the boat if
your boat remains stationary.
NOTE: If you are trolling, it is best to mount the transducer on the transom of the boat.
14
1. Mount the transducer so that it points straight down and so that the
transducer itself is submerged in the water (see the illustration Portable
Transducer Mount).
Portable Transducer Mount
Transducer Running Angle
2. Adjust the running angle so that the transducer is parallel to and
below the surface of the water (see the illustration Transducer
Running Angle).
3. Hand-tighten the wing nut so that the transducer will not rotate.
4. Secure the transducer cable in
case of accidental release when
the boat is moving, since a loose
transducer can cause damage to
itself, your boat, or become
tangled in the propeller. Attach
the tie-down strap to the
transducer cable around an
immovable object such as a rail or
fitting, as shown in the illustration
(see the illustration Transducer
Tie-Down Strap).
Transducer Tie-Down Strap
5. When you have finished using the transducer, unplug the transducer
cable from the transducer jumper port on the base, then coil the cable
around the assembly.
15
Moving the Portable Fishfinder
You should take the portable case with you when you leave the boat and will not
be using it. Perform the following steps to make your unit mobile:
1. With the boat engine off, loosen all cable retainers/clips holding the
transducer.
2. Remove the case from the surface mount.
3. Remove the transducer from the surface where it has been mounted,
wipe it dry, and stow it in the portable case rear pocket.
4. Unplug the power cable when not in use.
16

What You See On the Display
The PiranhaMAX™ displays underwater information in an easy-to-understand
format. The top of the display corresponds to the water surface at the transducer,
and the bottom of the display corresponds to the Depth Range automatically
selected for the current water depth. The Bottom Contour varies as the depth
under the boat changes. Digital readouts provide precise information for depth,
fish and water temperature.
As the boat moves, terrain and bottom composition variations are displayed.
Fish, baitfish and thermoclines (underwater temperature changes) are
displayed when detected. Underwater conditions vary greatly, so some
experience and interpretation is needed to realize all the benefits of the
PiranhaMAX™ – use the picture below as a guide to the most common
conditions and practice using your PiranhaMAX™ over known bottom types.

PiranhaMAX™ Sonar Technology
The PiranhaMAX™ is the easiest to use fishfinder ever. For most anglers, all
you’ll ever need to do is power on and fish! The PiranhaMAX™ automatically
determines depth and makes adjustments to keep the bottom and fish visible
on the display.
The PiranhaMAX™ uses sonar technology to send sound waves from the
transducer into the water. The returned “echoes” are plotted on the display,
creating a very accurate picture of the underwater world, including distance
to underwater objects such as the bottom, fish, and structure.
Your PiranhaMAX™ will have Single or Dual Beam sonar. Find the correct sonar
description that applies to your unit.
19
Single Beam Sonar
The PiranhaMAX™150 and PiranhaMAX™190c use a 200 kHz single beam
sonar system with a 20° area of coverage. Boat speed, wave action, bottom
hardness, water conditions and transducer installation can all affect depth
capability.
Dual Beam Sonar
The PiranhaMAX™160 uses a 200/83 kHz dual beam sonar system with a
wide (60°) area of coverage. Dual Beam sonar is optimized to show the greatest
bottom definition using a narrow (20°) beam yet can still indicate fish found
in the wide (60°) beam when the Fish ID+TM feature is turned on. Dual Beam
is ideal for a wide range of conditions - from shallow to very deep water in
both fresh and salt water. Boat speed, wave action, bottom hardness, water
conditions and transducer installation can all affect depth capability.
20
The Menu System
A simple menu system allows you to access your PiranhaMAX™ adjustable
settings. To activate the menu system, press the POWER-MENU key. Press the
POWER-MENU key repeatedly to display the PiranhaMAX™ menu settings,
one at a time. When a menu setting is on the display, use the RIGHT and LEFT
Arrow keys to adjust the menu setting. Menus settings are saved and removed
from the screen automatically after several seconds. In Normal operating mode,
most menu settings saved to memory will not return to their default values when
the unit is turned off. See individual menu choices for more information.
NOTE: Each time the POWER-MENU key is pressed, the backlight momentarily
illuminates for easy viewing at night. Adjust the LIGHT menu setting to keep the
backlight on.
NOTE: If Simulator Mode is selected from the Start-Up Menu and a transducer is
plugged in, some menu setting changes will be saved in memory even after the unit
is powered down. Menu setting changes will not be saved from Simulator mode
when a transducer is not connected.
NOTE: Turning on the SetUp menu choice from the Main Menu System allows you
to access additional set-up menu choices. See SetUp Menu for more information.
Light
(Setting Not Saved in Memory)
Press the POWER-MENU key until LIGHT appears. Use the backlight for night
fishing. Select either 0 (Off), or 1 through 5 to activate the backlight at the
desired level. (0 to 5, Default = 0 [PiranhaMAX™150/160]; 0 to 10, Default =
10 [PiranhaMAX™190c])
NOTE: Continuous backlight operation will significantly decrease the battery life for
PiranhaMAX™ Portables.
Sensitivity
(Setting Saved in Memory)
Press the POWER-MENU key until SENSITIVITY appears. Sensitivity controls how
much detail is shown on the display. 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. (0 – 10, Default = 5)
21
Depth Range
(Setting Not Saved in Memory)
Press the POWER-MENU key until DEPTH RANGE appears. Automatic is the
default setting. When in automatic, the lower range will be adjusted by the unit
to follow the bottom. (Auto, 15 to 600 ft [PiranhaMAX™150 and 160], 15 to 800 ft
[PiranhaMAX™190c], Default = Auto)
NOTE: In manual operation, if the depth is greater than the depth range setting,
the bottom will not be visible on the display. Select AUTO to return to automatic
operation.
Zoom
(Setting Not Saved in Memory)
Press the POWER-MENU key until ZOOM appears. Select Auto to magnify the
area around the bottom in order to reveal fish and structure close to the bottom
that may not be visible during normal operation. When ZOOM is set to Auto, the

Chart Speed
(Setting Saved in Memory)
Press the POWER-MENU key until CHART SPEED appears. Select a setting
from 1-5 to increase or decrease the chart speed, where 1 is the slowest and
5 is the fastest 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. (1 to 5,
Default = 5)
Fish Alarm
(Setting Saved in Memory)
Press the POWER-MENU key until FISH ALARM appears. Select Off for no fish
alarm, or one of the following symbols to set the alarm. An alarm will sound

This has the benefit of providing a high contrast
between the bottom and other sonar returns on the
display.
NOTE: Bottom Black View is not available on color
models.
WhiteLine™ highlights the strongest sonar returns in
white resulting in a distinctive outline. This has the
benefit of clearly defining the bottom on the display.
Inverse is a method where weak returns are shown
with dark pixels and strong returns with lighter pixels.

Maintenance
Your Humminbird® Portable fishfinder is designed to provide years of trouble-free
operation with virtually no maintenance. Follow the simple procedures below to
ensure that your Humminbird® Portable continues to deliver top performance.
If the Portable case comes into contact with salt spray, wipe the affected surfaces
with a lint-free cloth, then apply a commercially available anti-corrosive treatment
to all exposed electrical contacts.
If the portable case bag becomes dirty, clean the bag with mild soap, water, and
a soft rag or brush and then hang it up to dry.
Do not use a chemical glass cleaner on the lens - this may cause cracking in
the lens.
When cleaning the LCD protective lens, use a chamois and non-abrasive, mild
cleaner. Do not wipe while dirt or grease is on the lens. Be careful to avoid
scratching the lens.
If your boat remains in the water for long periods of time, marine growth can
reduce the effectiveness of the transducer. Periodically clean the face of the
transducer with liquid detergent.
If your boat remains out of the water for a long period of time, it may take some
time to wet the transducer when returned to the water. Small air bubbles can
cling to the surface of the transducer and interfere with proper operation. These
bubbles dissipate with time, or you can wipe the face of the transducer with your
fingers after the transducer is in the water.
Never leave your Humminbird® Portable unit in a closed car or trunk - the extremely
high temperatures generated in hot weather can damage the electronics. Repairs
should be performed only by authorized Humminbird® technicians.
How to Remove Water from the Portable Case
Open the front zipper and pull the case down to allow water to exit the case. If
needed, remove the case from the plastic base and air-dry it. Follow recommended
maintenance procedures for salt spray exposure if needed.

Troubleshooting
Do not attempt to repair the PiranhaMAX™ yourself. There are no user-serviceable
parts inside, and special tools and techniques are required for assembly to ensure
the waterproof integrity of the housing. Repairs should be performed only by
authorized Humminbird® technicians.
Many requests for repair received by Humminbird® involve units that do not
actually need repair. These units are returned “no problem found.” If you have a
problem with your PiranhaMAX™, use the following troubleshooting guide before
calling the Customer Resource Center or sending your unit in for repair.
1. Nothing happens when I turn the unit on.
Check the power cable connection at both ends. Be sure the cable is connected
correctly to a reliable power source — red lead to positive, black lead to
negative or ground. Ensure the power available is between 10 and 20 VDC.
Check the power connection to the PiranhaMAX™. It is possible to force the
power cable connector into the cable holder incorrectly. If the connector is
reversed, the unit will not work. Examine the contacts on the back of the unit
to ensure there is no corrosion.
2. There is no transducer detected.
The PiranhaMAX™ has the ability to detect and identify that a transducer is
connected. When powering on, if a message indicates “transducer not
connected”, make sure that an appropriate transducer connector is plugged
into the unit. In addition, inspect the transducer cable from end to end for breaks,
kinks, or cuts in the outer casing of the cable. Also make sure that the transducer
is fully submerged in water. If the transducer is connected to the unit through
a switch, temporarily connect it directly to the unit and try again. If none of these
actions identifies an obvious problem, the transducer itself is probably at fault.
Be sure to include the transducer if returning the unit for repair.
29
3. There is no bottom reading visible on the display.
In very deep water, it may be necessary to increase the sensitivity setting
manually to maintain a graphic depiction of the bottom. If you are using a
transducer switch to connect two transducers to the PiranhaMAX™, make sure
that the switch is in the correct position to connect a transducer that is in the
water. (If a trolling motor transducer is selected and the trolling motor is out of
the water, no sonar information appears.) If none of these actions solves the
problem, inspect the transducer cable from end to end for breaks, kinks, or cuts
in the outer casing of the cable. If the transducer is connected to the unit
through a switch, temporarily connect it directly to the unit and try again. If
none of these actions identifies an obvious problem, the transducer itself may
be at fault. Be sure to include the transducer if returning the unit for repair.
4. When in very shallow water, I get gaps in the bottom reading and
inconsistent digital depth indication.
The PiranhaMAX™ will work reliably in water 3 feet (90 cm) or deeper.
Remember that the depth is measured from the transducer, not from the
surface of the water.
5. The unit comes on before I press the POWER-MENU key, and won’t
turn off.
Check the transducer cable — if the outer jacket of the cable has been cut
and the cable is in contact with bare metal, you will need to repair the cut with
electrical tape. If there is no problem with the cable, disconnect the transducer
from the unit and see if the problem is corrected, to confirm the source of the
problem.
6. I get gaps in the reading at certain speeds.
The suction cup mount is designed for quick, easy installation and removal,
NOT for high speed operation. If you intend to operate your boat at any speed
faster than trolling speeds, remove the suction cup transducer from the water.
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
the sonar data. See your Installation Guide for suggestions on adjusting the
transducer position, height, and running angle.
30
7. The display begins to fade out. Images are not as sharp as normal.
Check the input voltage. The PiranhaMAX™ will not operate on input voltages
below 10 VDC.
8. The display shows many black dots at high sensitivity settings.
You are seeing noise or interference caused by one of several sources. Noise
can be caused by electronic devices. Turn off any nearby electronics and see if
the problem goes away. Noise can also be caused by the engine. If engine
noise is causing the interference, the problem will intensify at higher RPMs.
Increase the engine speed with the boat stationary to isolate this cause.
Propeller cavitation can also appear as noise on the display. If the transducer
is mounted too close to the propeller, the turbulence generated can interfere
with the sonar signal. Make sure that the transducer is mounted at least 15"
(380 mm) from the propeller.
