Sonar technology is based on sound waves. The Humminbird® FishFinder uses sonar to
locate and define structure, bottom contour and composition, as well as depth directly
below the transducer.
Your FishFinder 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.
Single Beam Sonar
Your Humminbird® FishFinder 585c uses a 200 kHz single beam sonar system with a
20° area of coverage. Depth capability is affected by such factors as boat speed, wave
action, bottom hardness, water conditions and transducer installation.

What’s On the Display
The Humminbird® FishFinder can display a variety of useful information about the area
Depth - water depth; can be set to alarm when
the water becomes too shallow.
under and adjacent to your boat, including the following items:
High Sonar Intensity Return
Bait Ball
Temperature - water surface temperature.
Timer - Elapsed time with Temp/Speed Accessory.
Distance - Distance traveled with Temp/Speed
Accessory.
Average Speed - Average speed reading with
Temp/Speed Accessory.
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.
Thermoclines - layers of water with different
temperatures that appear at different depths
and different times of the year. A thermocline
typically appears as a continuous band of many
gray levels moving across the display at the
same depth.
Fish - the FishFinder displays fish as arches
and/or fish icons, and can be set to alarm when
a fish of a certain size is detected. When a
target is detected, a Fish ID+TM symbol appears
on the display with the depth displayed above
it. The size of the symbol indicates the intensity
of the sonar return. The unit will clearly show
schools of Bait Fish as "clouds" of different
shapes and sizes, depending on the number of
fish and boat speed.
200 kHz, Orange Fish Symbol
Structure - where fish may be hiding.
RTS® (Real Time Sonar) Window
Speed - if a Temp/Speed accessory is attached,
the FishFinder can display the speed of the boat,
and can keep a Triplog of nautical or statute
miles traveled.
Battery Voltage - the voltage of the boat’s
battery; can be set to alarm if the voltage falls
below a certain point.
Low Sonar Intensity Return

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).
The views available on your FishFinder are:
• Sonar View
• Zoom View
• Big Digits View.
Sonar View is the default view. When the VIEW key is pressed, the display cycles through
the available views. When the EXIT key is pressed, the display cycles through the
available views in reverse order. Any view can be hidden or displayed as part of the view
rotation using Select View from the Advanced Setup Menu.
NOTE: When you change any menu settings that affect the sonar, the view will update
immediately (i.e. you don’t have to exit the menu to apply the change to the screen).
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.

NOTE: If the Depth number is flashing, it means that the unit is having trouble locating the
bottom. This usually happens if the water is too deep, the transducer is out of the water, the 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 Humminbird® display. The display
does NOT show a literal 3-dimensional 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.

Sonar Zoom View
Big Digits 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.
Big Digits View provides digital data in a large, easy-to-see format. Depth is always
displayed. Readouts for temperature, speed and Triplog information are displayed
automatically if the appropriate accessory is connected to the system. The Triplog shows
distance traveled, average speed, and time elapsed since the Triplog was last reset. The
digital readouts in the Big Digits View cannot be customized.
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. No additional digital
readouts, such as Temperature or Voltage, can be displayed in the Sonar Zoom View.

Bottom Presentation
Key Functions
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.
Your Humminbird® user interface consists of a set of easy-to-use keys that work with
various on-screen views and menus to give you flexibility and control over your fishing
experience.
NOTE: A sloping bottom will be represented as a thicker line across the display. Also, harder bottoms
will be typically displayed with red and softer bottoms will be typically displayed with blue.
The POWER/LIGHT key is used to turn the FishFinder on and off, and also
to adjust the backlight and background color of the display. Press the
POWER/LIGHT key to turn the unit on. The Title screen is then displayed until the
FishFinder begins sonar operation.
The sonar returns from the bottom, structure and fish can be represented as either
Structure ID®, or WhiteLine®. See Sonar X-Press™ Menu: Bottom View for details on how
to set the bottom view.
Structure ID® represents weak returns in blue and strong
returns in red.
POWER/LIGHT Key
To adjust the backlight, or to adjust the display background
color, press the POWER/LIGHT key to access the Light and
Background menu. Use the 4-WAY Cursor key to select Light or
Background and then use the LEFT or RIGHT Cursor key to
change the settings. Press EXIT to exit the Light and Background menu.
Press and hold the POWER/LIGHT key for 3 seconds to turn the unit off. A message will
appear telling you how many seconds there are until shutdown occurs. Your FishFinder
should always be turned off using the POWER/LIGHT key. This will ensure that
shutdown occurs properly and any menu settings will be saved.
VIEW Key
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.

Simulator
System Status
Use the Simulator to learn how to use your FishFinder 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 operating state.
Use System Status to view system connections and
to conduct a unit self-test.
The following screens are displayed in turn when
you press the VIEW button when using System
Status:
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 FishFinder 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 FishFinder for on the
water operation. Any menu changes you make will be saved for later use.

NOTE: Upper Range only appears in Advanced User Mode when
in Sonar or Big Digits View.
NOTE: Zoom Level only appears in Sonar Zoom View.
Sensitivity
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.

Upper Range
(Advanced: Sonar and Big Digits Views Only)
Upper Range sets the shallowest depth range that will be displayed on the Sonar and Big
Digits Views. The Upper Range menu choice is available when User Mode is set to
Advanced (see Setup Menu Tab: User Mode). 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.
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 in the Sonar View 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:
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 990 feet or 0 to 327 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.
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 = 4)
Bottom View
Bottom View selects the method used to represent
bottom and structure on the display. Structure ID® represents weak returns in blue and
strong returns in red. 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. (See Bottom Presentation for more information.)
To adjust the Bottom View:
1. Highlight Bottom View on the Sonar X-Press™ menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-Way Cursor Control keys to change the Bottom View
setting. (Structure ID, WhiteLine, Default = Structure ID)
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 1000 feet, 3 to 330 meters [International
Models Only], Default = AUTO)

Fish Sensitivity
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. Single beam sonar
FishFinders represent targets as orange Fish Symbols.
Fish Sensitivity adjusts the threshold of the Fish ID+™
detection algorithms. Selecting a higher setting allows weaker returns to be displayed as
fish. This is useful for identifying smaller fish species or baitfish. Selecting a lower setting
displays fewer fish from weak sonar returns. This is helpful when seeking larger species
of fish. Fish Sensitivity is used in conjunction with Fish ID+™. Fish ID+™ must be On for
Fish Sensitivity to affect the ability of the FishFinder to identify sonar returns as fish.
To change the Fish Sensitivity setting:
1. Highlight Fish Sensitivity on the Sonar main menu.
200 kHz Fish Symbols
When Fish ID+™ is turned off, the FishFinder 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.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-Way Cursor Control keys to change the Fish Sensitivity
setting. (Low = 1, High = 10, Default = 5)
Real Time Sonar (RTS®) Window
(Sonar View Only)
RTS® Window sets the RTS® window to either Wide or Narrow, or turns it off in the
Sonar View. The RTS® window always updates at the fastest rate possible and only
displays returns that are within the transducer beam. (See Real Time Sonar (RTS®)
Window for additional detail).

Noise Filter
Water Type
(Advanced)
(Advanced)
Noise Filter adjusts the sonar Noise Filter to limit interference on the display from
sources such as your boat engine, turbulence, or other sonar devices. The Noise Filter
menu choice is available when User Mode is set to Advanced (see Setup Menu Tab: User
Mode).
NOTE: The Off setting removes all filtering; Low, Medium and High settings add progressive
filtering of the sonar returns. In some deep water situations, the High setting may actually
hinder your FishFinder’s ability to find the bottom.
To change the Noise Filter setting:
1. Make sure you are in Advanced User Mode, then highlight Noise Filter on the
Sonar main menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-Way Cursor Control keys to change the Noise Filter
setting. (Off, Low, Medium, High, Default = Low)
Water Type configures your unit for operation in fresh or salt water. The Water Type
menu choice is available when User Mode is set to Advanced (see Setup Menu Tab: User
Mode).
NOTE: In salt water, what would be considered a large fish might be 2 to 10 times bigger than a
large fish in fresh water (depending on the type of fish you are seeking). The salt water setting
allows for a greater range in fish size adjustment to account for this. Also, make sure that the
Water Type is set accurately, especially in salt water, as this affects the accuracy of deep water
depth readings.
To change the Water Type setting:
1. Make sure you are in Advanced User Mode, then highlight Water Type on the
Sonar main menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-Way Cursor Control keys to change the Water Type
setting. (Fresh, Salt, Default = Fresh)
Max Depth
(Advanced)
Max Depth adjusts the maximum depth of operation. The performance of your
FishFinder can be tuned to the maximum depth you will be fishing in by setting the
Max Depth. When a maximum depth is set, your FishFinder will not attempt to acquire
sonar data below that depth, thus increasing overall performance. When Max Depth is
set to Auto, the FishFinder will acquire bottom readings as needed (within the capacity
of the unit). If the bottom is deeper than the Max Depth setting, the digital depth
readout will flash, indicating that the FishFinder cannot locate the bottom. The Max
Depth menu choice is available when User Mode is set to Advanced (see Setup Menu
Tab: User Mode).
To change the Max Depth setting:
1. Make sure you are in Advanced User Mode, then highlight Max Depth on the
Sonar main menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-Way Cursor Control keys to change the Max Depth

Troubleshooting
Display Problems
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.
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:
FishFinder Doesn’t Power Up
If your FishFinder 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 FishFinder 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.
Problem
If the power output of your boat’s engine is
unregulated, the control head may be protecting
itself using its over-voltage 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.
Correct any known problems, including removing corrosion from the battery terminals
or wiring, or actually replacing the battery if necessary.
FishFinder Defaults to Simulator with a Transducer Attached
A connected and functioning transducer will cause the newly-started FishFinder to go
into Normal operating mode automatically. If, when you power up the FishFinder, 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 FishFinder, check to
make sure that the transducer cable is securely connected to the FishFinder.
Reconnect if necessary, and power up the FishFinder again to see if this fixes
the problem.
• Replace the transducer with a known good transducer if available and power
up the control head again.
• Check the transducer cable and connector. Replace the transducer if the cable is
damaged or corroded.
38
Possible Cause
The control head loses power at
high speeds.
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.

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
How to Isolate It
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
Cavitation from the boat’s
propeller
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.
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.
