1100 Series™ Introduction
Your 1100 Series™ Ultra Wide Screen Fishing System comes in several different configurations. See the
following list of products, all of which are covered by this manual, to find your 1100 Series™ configuration:
• Humminbird® 1157c/1157c NVB DualBeam Combo: Ultra Wide Screen Fishing System with
Chartplotter (Maps) and Dual Frequency Transducer, GPS Receiver included
• Humminbird® 1197c/1197c NVB SI Combo: Ultra Wide Screen Fishing System with Chartplotter
(Maps) and Side Imaging and Dual Frequency Transducer, GPS Receiver included.
How Sonar Works
Sonar technology is based on sound waves. The 1100 Series™ Fishing System uses sonar to locate and
define structure, bottom contour and composition, as well as depth directly below the transducer.
Your 1100 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.
1
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.

High Definition Side Imaging Sonar
(1197c SI Combo models only)
Your 1100 Series™ 1197c SI Combo uses Side Imaging sonar to provide a wide yet precise survey of a large
area of water, including detailed bottom topography and fish-attracting structure orientation. The Side
Imaging transducer returns are processed into an image similar to an aerial photograph.
86°
455kHz
86°
455kHz

Typically, the Side Imaging sonar can search an area that is 720 feet wide (360 to each side), with a
typical depth performance of 150 feet when the Side Imaging Sonar frequency is set for 455 kHz. The
side beams can be operated at one of two frequencies: 455 kHz or 800 kHz. Selecting 800 kHz produces
the sharpest image but the search area to each side and the depth capability are limited as compared
to the 455 kHz frequency. See What’s on the Side Imaging Display and Understanding Side Imaging
for more information.
DualBeam PLUS™ Sonar
Your 1100 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. 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.

90° Total Coverage
Your 1100 Series™ Fishing System supports the optionalpurchase 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.
Bottom Coverage = 2 x 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.
Universal Sonar 2
Your 1100 Series™ Fishing System supports Universal Sonar 2, a state-of-the-art, integrated and protected
transducer that is built into the lower unit of Minn Kota® 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. 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 1100 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 +/- 4.5 meters, depending on conditions. This means
that 95% of the time, the GPS receiver will read a location within 4.5 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 over 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.
4
The GPS Receiver included with your 1100 Series™ Fishing system allows you to combine easy-to-use
fishing system and navigation capabilities. The following GPS functionality is currently supported by the
1100 Series™ Fishing system when it is connected to the included GPS receiver:
• View current position
• View current track (breadcrumb trail)
• View precision speed and heading from your GPS receiver
• Save tracks, waypoints and routes
• Travel a route and navigate from one waypoint to the next.
Your 1100 Series™ supports Navionics® Gold, HotMaps™, HotMaps™ Premium, and Platinum™
Cartography on MMC or SD card media.
NOTE: Your 1100 Series™ does not support Navionics® Classic Charts, only Navionics® Gold, HotMaps™,
HotMaps™ Premium, and Platinum™ Cartography.
NOTE: Some models come pre-loaded with Navionics® cartography and are referred to as NVB models. NVB
models are only available domestically. Currently, there are no international NVB models.
Your unit also comes with a built-in UniMap™ with a detailed map of North America (Domestic models) or
a detailed map of Europe and Southeast Asia, including Australia and New Zealand (International models).
Your 1100 Series™ uses the GPS Receiver to determine the position of the boat automatically, and uses
the zoom level settings on a particular view to select the best chart to display. See Viewing Cartography
for more information.
MMC/SD Slot
Your 1100 Series™ Fishing System also has an MMC/SD slot
that is used to insert optional-purchase cards containing
additional detailed maps. If you insert an MMC/SD that contains
a more detailed chart for a particular location, your 1100
Series™ Fishing System will retrieve that chart and display it
automatically. Use the illustration to locate the position of the
MMC/SD slot cover, open the MMC/SD slot cover, then insert
the MMC/SD into the slot. The label on the MMC/SD should
face toward the left side of the unit. Press down on the card
until it clicks into place and close the slot cover.

Inside the boat there is often a channel or conduit used for other wiring, this can be used to route cables.
Be sure to route the cables as far as practical from the antenna cable of VHF radios or tachometer cables
to reduce the possibility of interference. The GPS receiver cable should not be cut, and care should be used
not to damage the cable insulation.
Basic installation tasks that you must perform include:
• Installing the Transducer
• Installing the control head (choosing either gimbal or in-dash mounting)
• Installing the GPS Receiver
• Testing the complete installation.
NOTE: Accessories may require a separate purchase. You can visit our web site at www.humminbird.com to
order these accessories online or contact our Customer Resource Center at 1-800-633-1468.

Control Head Installation
You have two choices for mounting your 1100 Series™ control head, Gimbal mounting, where you use a
surface on the boat, such as the dash, to mount the control head so that it can be tilted up or down, or Indash mounting.
Gimbal Mounting the Control Head
If you are gimbal mounting the Humminbird® 1100 Series™, you can pre-assemble the unit in order to plan
the best mounting location.

In addition to the hardware supplied with your control head, you will need a powered hand drill and
various drill bits, various hand tools, including a Phillips head screwdriver, a socket wrench and a flat head
screwdriver, a marker or pencil, safety glasses and dust mask, and marine-grade silicone sealant.
1. Place the control head into the gimbal bracket. Make sure that the straight side of the gimbal arm
is against the back side of the control head.
2. Place a 1" (25 mm) diameter black washer on the gimbal knob and then thread the knob and
washer into the housing. Tighten the gimbal knob to secure the 1100 Series™ control head to the
mount. Repeat step 2 for the other side.
You can now place the control head in various locations to decide which is best for mounting. Rotating the
mounting bracket to the top of the control head will allow for overhead mounting. The chosen mounting
area should allow for sufficient room so the control head can pivot through the full tilt range and allow for
easy removal and installation.
NOTE: You can drill the cable pass hole underneath the gimbal bracket, allowing you to thread the cables through
the hole in the center of the mount; however, if you cannot drill the hole directly under the mounting bracket,
then you will need to drill the cable pass hole behind the bracket, and will need to mount the hole cover there
instead.
NOTE: When drilling holes in fiberglass hulls, it is best to start with a smaller bit and use progressively larger drill
bits to reduce the chance of chipping or flaking the outer coating. Fill all holes with marine grade silicone sealant.
9
NOTE: You must have underside access to the mounting location to pass the cables through to the surface. Also,
make sure that the mounting surface is adequately supported to protect the control head from excessive wave
shock and vibration and provide visibility while in operation.
NOTE: Go to the installation instructions applicable to your GPS Receiver and accessories. Make the required
installations and then run the cables to your control head mounting location. Do not cut any cabling (except the
power cable). If your cables are too short, extensions are available from your local dealer or online from
www.humminbird.com.
3. After the mounting location has been determined, loosen the gimbal knobs and remove the
control head from the gimbal bracket.
NOTE: Alternate hole patterns are available on the gimbal mounting bracket, and may match existing holes on
the boat. You may choose to use one of these alternate hole patterns.
4. Place the gimbal bracket in the chosen position on the mounting surface and mark the four
mounting screw locations using a pencil or center punch.

5. Set the gimbal bracket aside and drill the four mounting screw holes using a 5/32" (4.0 mm) drill bit.
6a. If the cables must pass through a hole directly beneath the mounting bracket, mark and drill an
additional 1" (25 mm) hole centered between the four mounting holes. Route the cables through
the 1" hole. Place the gimbal over the mounting surface hole, then use it to mark the position of
the two mounting screws, closest to the center large hole. Remove the gimbal and drill the two
mounting holes using a 9/64" (3.5 mm) bit. Do not install the hole cover at this time.
or...
10
6b. If the cables cannot be routed directly beneath the mounting bracket, mark and drill a 1" (25 mm)
hole that will allow you to run the cables close to the bracket. Pass the cables through the 1" (25
mm) hole, routing the cables through the grommet and pressing the grommet into place. Place
the hole cover over the mounting surface hole, then use it to mark the position of the two
mounting screws. Remove the hole cover, drill the two mounting holes using a 9/64" (3.5 mm) bit,
fill them with marine-grade silicone sealant, then replace the hole cover and insert the #8 Phillips
countersink wood screws. Hand-tighten only.
7. Place the mounting bracket on the mounting surface aligned with the drilled holes and fill the
mounting holes with marine grade silicone sealant. Insert the four #10 Slotted-Hex wood screws
into the mounting holes. Hand-tighten only.
8. If the cable pass through hole is beneath the mounting bracket, you will need to install the hole
cover after you have routed all cables. Place the hole cover over the mounting bracket cable pass
thru hole and align with holes drilled in step 6a. Insert the #8 Phillips countersink wood screws.
Hand tighten only.
NOTE: Be sure that the cables pass through the slots on the hole cover and that there is enough cable slack to
allow for the control head to pivot through its full tilt range. Extra cable slack will also help when connecting or
disconnecting the cables.

In-Dash Mounting the Control Head
If you are in-dash mounting the control head, start by placing the components on the surfaces where you
intend to install them before installation. Make sure that the surfaces you have chosen provide adequate
protection from wave shock, and that all cables can reach the control head.
NOTE: If a cable is too short for your application, extension cables are available. Call Humminbird® Customer
Support at 1-800-633-1468 for more information.
Parts and tools specific to In-dash mounting are:
•
•
•
•
•
Threaded rods and hardware
In-dash mounting foam pads
In-dash mounting template
Reciprocating saw for cutting dash material
Masking tape to hold mounting template in place.
1. Locate a suitable, flat area of the dash to mount the control head. The control head requires a
depth of at least 4 inches (102 mm).
2. Tape the paper In-Dash Mounting template to the desired in-dash mounting location.
3. At a location inside the dotted line on the template, drill a hole large enough to insert blade of
reciprocating saw. In addition, drill the 4 mounting hole locations using a 3/16" drill bit. Carefully begin
cutting toward the dotted line, then follow the dotted line around the template. Remove the template
when finished.
4. Insert and tighten the four threaded rods into the four threaded inserts located on the back side of
the control head. Peel off the adhesive-backed foam pads and place them on the back of the control

Connecting the Control Head Power Cable to the Boat
A 6' (2 m) long power cable is included to supply power to the control head. You may shorten or lengthen
the cable using 18 gauge multi-stranded copper wire.
CAUTION: Some boats have 24 or 36 Volt electric systems, but the control head MUST be connected to a 12 VDC
power supply.
POSITIVE
The control head power cable can be connected to the electrical system of the boat at one of two places:
a fuse panel usually located near the console, or directly to the battery.
GROUND
NOTE: Make sure that the power cable is disconnected from the control head at the beginning of this procedure.
NOTE: Humminbird® is not responsible for over-voltage or over-current failures. The control head must have
adequate protection through the proper selection and installation of a 3 Amp fuse.
1a. If a fuse terminal is available, use crimp-on type electrical connectors (not included)
that match the terminal on the fuse panel. Attach the black wire to ground (-), and
the red wire to positive (+) 12 VDC power. Install a 3 Amp fuse (not included) for
protection of the unit. Humminbird® is not responsible for over-voltage of over-current
failures.
or...
1b. If you need to wire the control head directly to a battery, obtain and install an inline
fuse holder and a 3 Amp fuse (not included) for the protection of the unit.
Humminbird® is not responsible for overvoltage or over-current failures.
NOTE: Your unit will detect when your battery voltage is too low or too high, and will display either
Input Voltage Low or Input Voltage High messages if these limits are exceeded. If you turn the Low
Battery Alarm on using the Alarms Main Menu, your unit will use your settings. If you do not turn
the Low Battery Alarm on, the unit will use these limits: 7.5 to 7.9 VDC for the low end, and 21 to
21.2 VDC for the high end.
NOTE: In order to minimize the potential for interference with other marine electronics, a separate power source
(such as a second battery) may be necessary.

Transducer Installation Overview
The 1157c Combo units and the 1197c SI Combo units use two different types of transducers. Find the
installation section that describes your transducer type.
1197c SI Transducer Installation
(1197c SI Combo models only)
If you have a 1197c SI Combo unit, there are two different installation methods for your transducer:
• Transom Transducer
• Trolling Motor Transducer.
Find the section that describes the method of installation you will be using.
The Side Imaging transducer has some special requirements because of its side viewing capabilities:
• The Side Imaging transducer must NOT have anything obstructing the ‘view’ of the side
looking beams, i.e. nothing can be in the line of sight of these beams (not a hull, motor, or
other transducer, etc).
NOTE: You may need to tilt the motor up and out of the way when using the side looking beams.
• In order for the side beams to be displayed accurately, the transducer must be mounted so that
it is looking straight down in the water when the boat is in the water.
Transducer Mount Position
Obstructed View: The transducer is too close to motor
turbulence, and the side imaging view is blocked by
the motor. The view cannot extend from side-to-side.
Unobstructed View: The jack plate gives the transducer
safe distance from the motor and turbulence. The side
imaging has a clear view side-to-side.
NOTE: If the included transducer will not work for your application, you may exchange it, NEW and UNASSEMBLED,
with mounting hardware included, for a transducer appropriate for your application - often at very little or no charge
depending on the transducer. Call the Humminbird® Customer Resource Center at 1-800-633-1468 for details and
pricing, or visit www.humminbird.com.
NOTE: In addition to the hardware supplied with your transducer, you will need a powered hand drill and various
drill bits, various hand tools, including a ruler or straightedge, a marker or pencil, safety glasses and dust mask, and
marine-grade silicone sealant.
NOTE: When drilling holes in fiberglass hulls, it is best to start with a smaller bit and use progressively larger drill
bits to reduce the chance of chipping or flaking the outer coating.
NOTE: Due to the wide variety of hulls, only general instructions are presented in this installation guide. Each boat
hull represents a unique set of requirements that should be evaluated prior to installation. It is important to read
the instructions completely and understand the mounting guidelines before beginning installation.
18
Transom Transducer Installation
(1197c SI Combo models only)
If you will be installing a transom mounted transducer, use the procedures in this section. There are two
pieces to the transducer mount assembly: the pivot, and the bracket. Your transducer comes with a twopiece metal and plastic bracket assembly. There are several procedures you will have to perform in order
to install a transom-mounted transducer. They are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Determine transducer mounting location
Mount the bracket to the boat
Attach the pivot to the transducer
Mount the transducer pivot assembly to the bracket
Adjust the running position of the transducer
Route the transducer cable
Perform a final test of the transom transducer installation.
Stepped Hull
Areas of Possible Turbulence
Rivets
Strakes
Transom
Step
Hull
Rib
To determine transducer mounting location:
NOTE: If transom mounting is not possible because of a stepped hull or cavitation noise, trolling motor
installation may be an option. See Trolling Motor Transducer Installation for more information.
1. First, determine the best location on the transom to install the transducer. Consider the following
to find the best location:
Deadrise Angle
• It is very important to locate the transducer in an area
which is relatively free of turbulent water. As a boat moves
through the water, turbulence is generated by the weight
of the boat, and the thrust of the propeller(s) - either
clockwise or counter-clockwise. This turbulent water is
normally confined to areas immediately aft of ribs, strakes
or rows of rivets on the bottom of the boat, and in the
immediate area of the propeller(s). Clockwise propellers
create more turbulence on the port side. On outboard or
inboard/outboard boats, it is best to locate the transducer
at least 15" (380 mm) to the side of the propeller(s).
19
• The best way to locate turbulence-free water is to view the transom while the boat is moving. This
method is recommended if maximum high-speed operation is a high priority. If this is not possible,
select a location on the transom where the hull forward of this location is smooth, flat and free of
protrusions or ribs.
• The hydrodynamic shape of your transducer allows it to point straight down without deadrise
adjustment.
• On boats with stepped hulls, it may be possible to mount the transducer on the step. Do not
mount the transducer on the transom behind a step to avoid popping the transducer out of the
water at higher speeds; the transducer must remain in the water for the control head to
maintain the sonar signal.
• If the transom is behind the propeller(s), it may be impossible to find an area clear from
turbulence, and a different mounting technique or transducer type should be considered (see
Trolling Motor Transducer Installation).
• The Side Imaging transducer must NOT have anything obstructing the ‘view’ of the side looking
beams, i.e. nothing can be in the line of sight of these beams (not a hull, motor, or other
transducer, etc).
To mount the transducer bracket to the boat:
1. Remove the transducer mounting template from this manual. See Appendix A for the Transducer
Mounting Template.
Level
15” (380 mm) from prop(s)
2. Hold the template on the transom of the boat in the location where the transducer will be
installed. Align the template vertically, matching the lower edge of the transom with the bottom
corner of the template. If your propeller moves clockwise as the boat moves forward, mount the
transducer on the starboard side, and use the bottom left corner of the template. If your propeller
moves counter-clockwise as the boat moves forward, mount the transducer on the port side, and
use the bottom right corner of the template.
3. Using a pencil or punch, mark the three mounting holes on the transom. Do not mark or drill any
other holes at this time.
20
Attaching the Bracket
4. Using a 5/32" (4.0 mm) bit, drill the three holes to a depth of
approximately 1" (25 mm). On fiberglass hulls, it is best to use
progressively larger drill bits to reduce the chance of
chipping or flaking the outer coating. Use a marine-grade
silicone sealant to fill the drilled holes.
5. Align the metal mounting bracket with the mounting holes.
The center slot should be above the two outer slots. (This
bracket and all other hardware supplied is top quality
stainless steel for maximum strength and corrosion
protection.) Insert the three 1" (25 mm) flat head wood
screws into the drilled holes, but do not completely tighten.
To attach the pivot to the transducer:
1. Attach the pivot to the transducer body, using the two 1/4"-20 x 5/8" (16 mm) machine screws,
toothed washers, and square nuts. The toothed washers must fit on the inside of the transducer
knuckle, between the pivot and the knuckle. The square nuts will be prevented from rotating by
the pocket in the back of the pivot. An Allen wrench is provided which fits all the 1/4"-20 screws,
but do not fully tighten the screws at this time.

To mount the transducer pivot assembly to the bracket:
1. Slide the assembled transducer into the metal bracket from the bottom, aligning the large hole
at the top of the bracket with the hole in the pivot.
2. Insert the headed pin through the pivot holes in the bracket and pivot. The headed pin can be
inserted from either side of the bracket.
3. Place the nylon washer over the opposite end of the headed pin. Place the stainless washer over the
1/4"-20 x 5/8" (16 mm) screw threads, then insert into the opposite end of the headed pin and finger
tighten only. The screw has a thread locking compound on the threads to prevent loosening, and should
not be fully tightened until all adjustments are made.
21
NOTE: The running position of the transducer is now completely adjustable. Subsequent adjustment may be
necessary to tweak the installation after high speed testing.

To adjust the running position of the transducer:
The transducer mounting bracket allows height and tilt adjustment, while the pivot bolt allows angular
adjustment. These adjustments will help reduce cavitation. Initially, adjust the transducer as described in the
following paragraphs. Further adjustment may be necessary to refine the installation after high-speed testing.
Cavitation that will cause
erratic sonar readings
Normal Cavitation
1. First, adjust the pivot angle of the transducer body, so it is parallel with the length of the hull of
the boat.
2. Fully tighten the two pivot screws, using the supplied Allen wrench. Access to the pivot screws
is provided by the lower holes in the side of the mounting bracket. It may be necessary to retighten the pivot bolt after initial use as the plastic may still be conforming to the pressure from
the lock washers.
3. Adjust the height of the assembly so the face of the transducer is 1/8"
(3 mm) to 1/4" (6 mm) beneath the bottom of the transom, and fully
tighten the three mounting screws.
4. In order to gain access to the mounting screws, the transducer
assembly must be pivoted up in the bracket as shown. Be careful not
to alter the running angle as some force is necessary to pivot the
assembly.
Tighten the Mounting Screws
5. If access to the top mounting hole is not possible due to the selected height of the transducer,
fully tighten the two lower screws, then simply remove the headed pivot pin and the transducer
assembly, and tighten the top screw, then reassemble.
6. Confirm that the pivot angle has not changed and that all mounting screws are fully tightened.
22
To route the transom transducer cable:
The transducer cable has a low profile connector that must be routed to the point where the control head
is mounted. There are several ways to route the transducer cable to the area where the control head will
be installed. The most common procedure routes the cable through the transom into the boat.
NOTE: Your boat may have a pre-existing wiring channel or conduit that you can use for the transducer cable.
1. Unplug the other end of the transducer cable from the control head. Make sure that the cable is
long enough to accommodate the planned route by running the cable over the transom.
CAUTION! Do not cut or shorten the transducer cable, and try not to damage the cable insulation. Route the
cable as far as possible from any VHF radio antenna cables or tachometer cables to reduce the possibility of
interference. If the cable is too short, extension cables are available to extend the transducer cable up to a
total of 50' (15 m). For assistance, contact the Customer Resource Center at www.humminbird.com or call
1-800-633-1468 for more information.
NOTE: Since the transducer may need to pivot up to 90° in the bracket if it strikes an object, make sure there
is sufficient cable slack to accommodate this motion. It is best to route the cable to the side of the transducer
so the cable will not be damaged by the rotation of the transducer.
2a. If you are routing the cable over the transom of the boat, secure the cable by attaching the cable
clamp to the transom, drilling 9/64" diameter holes for #8 x 5/8" wood screws, then skip directly
to procedure 5, Connecting the Cable.
or...
Routing the Cable
2b. If you will be routing the cable through a hole in the transom, drill a 5/8"
diameter hole above the waterline. Route the cable through this hole,
then fill the hole with marine-grade silicone sealant and proceed to the
next step immediately.
3.
Place the escutcheon plate over the cable hole and use it as a guide to
mark the two escutcheon plate mounting holes. Remove the plate, drill
two 9/64" diameter x 5/8" deep holes, and then fill both holes with
marine-grade silicone sealant. Place the escutcheon plate over the cable
hole and attach with two #8 x 5/8" wood screws.
4.
Route and secure the cable by attaching the cable clamp to the transom;
drill one 9/64" diameter x 5/8" deep hole, then fill the hole with marinegrade silicone sealant, then attach the cable clamp using a #8 x 5/8"
screw.
5.
Plug the other end of the transducer cable back into the control head
connection holder.
Storing Excess Cable
NOTE: If there is excess cable that needs to be gathered at one location
(as shown in the illustration), dress the cable routed from both directions
so that a single loop is left extending from the storage location. Doubling
the cable up from this point, form the cable into a coil. Storing excess
cable using this method can reduce electronic interference.
23
Test and Finish the Transducer Installation
When you have installed both the control head, the transducer, and accessories and have routed all the
cables, you must perform a final test before locking the transducer in place. Testing should be performed
with the boat in the water, although you can initially confirm basic operation with the boat out of the water.
1. Press the POWER/LIGHT key once to turn the control head on. There will be an audible chirp
when the key is pressed correctly. If the unit does not power-up, make sure that the connector
holder is fully seated and that power is available.
2. If all connections are correct and power is available, the control head will enter Normal operation.
If no transducer is detected (or one is not connected), the unit will go into Simulator mode and
will indicate this by displaying the word Simulator on the control head display.
NOTE: The transducer must be submerged in water for reliable transducer detection.
3. If the bottom is visible on-screen with a digital depth readout, the unit is working properly. Make
sure that the boat is in water greater than 2 ft (.6 m) but less than the depth capability of the unit,
and that the transducer is fully submerged, since the sonar signal cannot pass through air.
4. If the unit is working properly, gradually increase the boat speed to test high-speed performance.
If the unit functions well at low speeds but begins to skip or miss the bottom at higher speeds,
the transducer requires adjustment. Angling the rear of the transducer downward and/or
lowering the transducer farther into the water will help achieve depth readings at high speeds.
If the left side of the fish arch is longer than the right side, then the back of the transducer is
angled too far downward. If the right side of the fish arch is longer than the left side, then the
back of the transducer is angled too far upwards.
NOTE: Due to the wide variety of boat hulls, it may not always be possible to get symmetrical fish arches and
high speed depth readings at the same time.
NOTE: It is often necessary to make several incremental transducer adjustments before optimum high speed
performance is achieved.
Once you have reached a consistently good sonar signal at the desired speeds, you are ready to lock down
the transducer settings.
5. Mark the transducer bracket location on the transom with a pencil, then pop up the bracket to
reveal the mounting screws. Tighten the stainless steel mounting bracket screws to secure in
place. Hand-tighten only!
24
1157c Transducer Installation
(1157c Combo models only)
If you have a 1157c Combo model, there are three different installation methods for your transducer:
• Transom Transducer
• Inside the Hull Transducer
• Trolling Motor Transducer.
Your 1100 Series™ uses a Two Piece Kick-up transducer mounting bracket. Find the section that describes
the method of installation you will be using.
NOTE: If the included transducer will not work for your application, you may exchange it, NEW and
UNASSEMBLED, with mounting hardware included, for a transducer appropriate for your application - often
at very little or no charge depending on the transducer. Call the Humminbird® Customer Resource Center at
1-800-633-1468 for details and pricing, or visit www.humminbird.com.
NOTE: In addition to the hardware supplied with your transducer, you will need a powered hand drill and various
drill bits, various hand tools, including a ruler or straightedge, a level, a 12" plumb line (weighted string or
monofilament line), marker or pencil, safety glasses and dust mask, and marine-grade silicone sealant.
NOTE: Due to the wide variety of hulls, only general instructions are presented in this installation guide. Each
boat hull represents a unique set of requirements that should be evaluated prior to installation. It is important to
read the instructions completely and understand the mounting guidelines before beginning installation.
NOTE: When drilling holes in fiberglass hulls, it is best to start with a smaller bit and use progressively larger drill
bits to reduce the chance of chipping or flaking the outer coating.
NOTE: Your transducer may not look exactly like the transducer shown in the illustrations, but it will mount in
exactly the same way.
Transom Transducer Installation
(1157c Combo models only)
If you will be installing a transom mounted transducer, use the procedures in this section. There are several
procedures you will have to perform in order to install a transom-mounted transducer. They are:
• Locate transducer mounting location
• Prepare the mounting location
• Assemble the transducer and perform initial mounting
• Route the transducer cable
• Connect the transducer cable
• Perform a final test of the transom transducer installation.
25
1. Locating the transducer mounting location
NOTE: If transom mounting is not possible because of a stepped hull or cavitation noise, and you have a
single layer fiberglass hull, In-hull installation is an option. See Inside the Hull Transducer Installation for
more information.
Turbulence: You must first determine the best location on the transom to install the transducer. It is very
important to locate the transducer in an area that is relatively free of turbulent water. Consider the
following to find the best location with the least amount of turbulence:
• As the boat moves through the water, turbulence is generated by the weight of the boat and the
thrust of the propeller(s) - either clockwise or counter-clockwise. This turbulent water is normally
confined to areas immediately aft of ribs, strakes or rows of rivets on the bottom of the boat, and in
the immediate area of the propeller(s). Clockwise propellers create more turbulence on the port side.
On outboard or inboard/outboard boats, it is best to locate the transducer at least 15" to the side
of the propeller(s).

• The best way to locate turbulence-free water is to view the transom while the boat is moving. This
method is recommended if maximum high-speed operation is a high priority. If this is not possible,
select a location on the transom where the hull forward of this location is smooth, flat and free of
protrusions or ribs.
Level
15”
Find a turbulence-free location at least 15" from the propeller(s)
and not in line with trailer bunks or rollers.
26
•
On boats with stepped hulls, it may be possible to
mount the transducer on the step. Do not mount the
transducer on the transom behind a step to avoid
popping the transducer out of the water at higher
speeds; the transducer must remain in the water for the
control head to maintain the sonar signal.
Deadrise Angle
• If the transom is behind the propeller(s), it may be impossible to find an area clear from
turbulence, and a different mounting technique or transducer type should be considered, such as
an Inside the Hull Transducer (see Inside the Hull Transducer Installation).
• If you plan to trailer your boat, do not mount the transducer too close to trailer bunks or rollers to avoid
moving or damaging the transducer during loading and unloading of the boat.
• If high speed operation is critical, you may want to consider using an In-Hull transducer instead
of this Transom Mount transducer.
NOTE: The hydrodynamic shape of your transducer allows it to point straight down without deadrise
adjustment.
NOTE: If you cannot find a transom mount location that will work for your high-speed application, find an
In-Hull Transducer by contacting our Customer Resource Center at either 1-800-633-1468 or by visiting our
web site at www.humminbird.com.
2. Preparing the Mounting Location
In this procedure, you will determine the mounting location and drill two mounting holes, using the
transducer mounting bracket as a guide.
1. Make sure that the boat is level on the trailer, both from port to starboard and from bow to stern, by
placing your level on the deck of the boat, first in one direction, then in the other.
2. Hold the mounting bracket against the transom of the boat in the location you have selected.
Align the bracket horizontally, using the level; make sure that the lower corner of the bracket does
not protrude past the bottom of the hull, and there is at least 1/4" clearance between the bottom
of the bracket and the bottom of the transom for fiberglass boats, and 1/8" clearance for
aluminum boats.

NOTE: If you have a flat-bottomed aluminum boat, some additional adjustment may be needed to
accommodate the rivets on the bottom of the boat (i.e. the gap may need to be a little smaller than 1/8").
This will help you to avoid excessive turbulence at high speeds.
NOTE: If your propeller moves clockwise (in forward, as you're facing the stern of the boat from behind),
mount the transducer on the starboard side, and align the bottom right corner of the mounting bracket with
the bottom of the boat. If your propeller moves counter-clockwise (in forward, as you're facing the stern of
the boat from behind), mount the transducer on the port side, and align the bottom left corner of the
mounting bracket with the bottom of the boat.
Using the Mounting Bracket to
Mark the Initial Drill Holes
3. Continue to hold the bracket on the transom of the boat, and use
a pencil or marker to mark where to drill the two mounting holes.
Mark the drill holes near the top of each slot, making sure that
your mark is centered in the slot.
Fourth Hole
NOTE: The third hole should not be drilled until the angle and
height of the transducer is finalized, which you will not do until a
later procedure.
4. Make sure that the drill bit is perpendicular to the actual surface
of the transom, NOT parallel to the ground, before you drill. Using
a 5/32” bit, drill the two holes only to a depth of approximately 1”.
Third Hole
Mark Initial Drill Holes
NOTE: On fiberglass hulls, it is best to use progressively larger drill bits to
reduce the chance of chipping or flaking the outer coating.
3. Assembling the Transducer and Initial Mounting
In this procedure, you will assemble the transducer using the hardware provided, then mount it and make
adjustments to its position without locking it in place.
NOTE: You will initially assemble the transducer and the pivot arm by matching the two ratchets to a
numbered position on the transducer knuckle. Further adjustments may be necessary.
1a. If you already know your transom angle, refer to the chart below for the initial position to use to
set the ratchets. If your transom is angled at 14 degrees (a common transom angle for many
boats) use position 1 for the ratchets. In either case, go to step 2.

1b. If you do not know your transom angle, measure it using a plumb line (weighted nylon string or
monofilament line) exactly 12 inches long. Hold the top of the plumb line against the top of the
transom with your finger, and wait until the line hangs straight down. Using a ruler, measure the
distance from the bottom of the plumb line to the back of the transom, then use the chart.

2. Place the two ratchets, one on either side of the transducer knuckle,
so that the beads on each ratchet line up with the desired position
number on the knuckle. If you are setting the ratchets at position 1,
the beads on each ratchet will line up with the rib on the transducer
knuckle to form one continuous line on the assembly.
NOTE: The ratchets are keyed; make sure that the square teeth on each
ratchet face the square teeth on the transducer knuckle, and the triangular
teeth face outward.

3. Put the pivot bolt through the assembly to hold it in position and loosely install the nut, but do
NOT tighten the nut at this time. Insert the pivot arm assembly into the mounting bracket. Do NOT
snap the assembly closed, as you will need to access the mounting bracket in the next step.
NOTE: If the pivot assembly is snapped closed over the mounting bracket, use a flat head screwdriver or
similar tool to gently pry the assembly away from the mounting bracket.
4. Align the mounting bracket transducer assembly with the drilled holes in the transom. With a
5/16" socket driver, mount the assembly to the transom using the two #10 - 1" long screws
provided.
Mounting the Assembly to the Transom
NOTE: Make sure that the mounting screws are snug, but do
not fully tighten the mounting screws at this time to allow the
transducer assembly to slide for adjustment purposes.
5. Snap the pivot arm down into place.
6. Adjust the initial angle of the transducer from back to
front by rotating the transducer until the side seam on
the transducer is almost parallel with the bottom of the
boat, one click at a time in either direction.

be slightly below the bottom of the hull.
8. Continue to adjust until the bracket is also level from port to starboard (horizontally level as you
look at the transducer from behind the boat).
9. Mark the correct position on the transom by tracing the silhouette of the transducer mounting
bracket with a pencil or marker.
10. Tighten the pivot bolt, using the pivot screw and nut to lock the assembly. Hand tighten only!
11. Snap open the assembly and hand-tighten the two mounting screws, then snap the assembly
closed.
NOTE: You will drill the third mounting hole and finalize the installation after you route the cable and test
and finish the installation in the following procedures.
31
4. Routing the Cable
The transducer cable has a low profile connector, which must be routed to the point where the control
head is mounted. There are several ways to route the transducer cable to the area where the control head
is installed. The most common procedure routes the cable through the transom into the boat.
NOTE: Your boat may have a pre-existing wiring channel or conduit that you can use for the transducer cable.
1. Unplug the other end of the transducer cable from the control head. Make sure that the cable is
long enough to accommodate the planned route by running the cable over the transom.
CAUTION! Do not cut or shorten the transducer cable, and try not to damage the cable insulation. Route the
cable as far as possible from any VHF radio antenna cables or tachometer cables to reduce the possibility of
interference. If the cable is too short, extension cables are available to extend the transducer cable up to a
total of 50'. For assistance, contact the Customer Resource Center at www.humminbird.com or call
1-800-633-1468 for more information.
NOTE: The transducer can pivot up to 90 degrees in the bracket. Allow enough slack in the cable for this
movement. It is best to route the cable to the side of the transducer so the transducer will not damage the
cable during movement.
2a. If you are routing the cable over the transom of the boat, secure the cable by attaching the cable
clamp to the transom, drilling 9/64" diameter holes for #8 x 5/8" wood screws, then skip directly
to procedure 5, Connecting the Cable.
or...
Routing the Cable
2b. If you will be routing the cable through a hole in the transom, drill
a 5/8" diameter hole above the waterline. Route the cable through
this hole, then fill the hole with marine-grade silicone sealant and
proceed to the next step immediately.
3. Place the escutcheon plate over the cable hole and use it as a
guide to mark the two escutcheon plate mounting holes. Remove
the plate, drill two 9/64" diameter x 5/8" deep holes, and then fill
both holes with marine-grade silicone sealant. Place the
escutcheon plate over the cable hole and attach with two #8 x 5/8"
wood screws.
4. Route and secure the cable by attachingthe cable clamp to the
transom; drill one 9/64" diameter x 5/8" deep hole, then fill the hole
with marine-grade silicone sealant, then attach the cable clamp
using a #8 x 5/8" screw.
5. Plug the other end of the transducer cable back into the control
head connection holder.
Storing Excess Cable
NOTE: If there is excess cable that needs to be gathered at one location
(as shown in the illustration), dress the cable routed from both directions
so that a single loop is left extending from the storage location. Doubling
the cable up from this point, form the cable into a coil. Storing excess
cable using this method can reduce electronic interference.
32
5. Connecting the Cable
Insert the transducer cable into the appropriate terminal slot. The cable connectors are labeled, and
there are corresponding labels on the cable holder on the rear of the control head. The slots are keyed
to prevent reversed installation, so be careful not to force the connector into the holder. Refer to your
manual and/or control head installation guide for the correct procedure for installing the cable
connectors to the control head.
1. Plug the other end of the transducer cable back into the control head connection holder.
Your control head is now ready for operation.
6. Test and Finish the Installation
Once you have installed both the control head and the transom transducer, and have routed all the cables,
you must perform a final test before locking the transducer in place. Testing should be performed with the
boat in the water, although you can initially confirm basic operation with the boat out of the water.
1. Press POWER once to turn the control head on. If the unit does not power up, make sure that the
connector holder is fully seated in the receptacle and that power is available.
2. If all connections are correct and power is available, the Humminbird® control head will enter
Normal operation.
3. If the bottom is visible on-screen with a digital depth readout, the unit is working properly. Make
sure that the boat is in water greater than 2' but less than the depth capability of the unit, and
that the transducer is fully submerged, since the sonar signal cannot pass through air.
NOTE: The transducer must be submerged in water for reliable transducer detection.
4. If the unit is working properly, gradually increase the boat speed to test high-speed performance.
If the unit functions well at low speeds, but begins to skip or miss the bottom at higher speeds,
the transducer requires adjustment.
5. If you have the correct angle set on the transducer, yet lose a bottom reading at high speed,
adjust the height and the running angle in small increments to give you the ideal transducer
position for your boat. First, adjust the height in small increment.
NOTE: The deeper the transducer is in the water, the more likely that a rooster tail of spray will be generated
at high speeds, so make sure that the transducer is as high as it can be and still be submerged in the water.
If you are still not getting good high speed readings, you may need to disassemble the transducer
mounting assembly and re-position the ratchets.
If you do change the transducer position, re-trace the position of the mounting bracket before
proceeding.
NOTE: It is often necessary to make several incremental transducer adjustments before optimum high speed
performance is achieved. Due to the wide variety of boat hulls, however, it is not always possible to obtain high
speed depth readings.
33
6. Once you have reached a consistently good sonar signal at the desired speeds, you are ready to
lock down the transducer settings. Force the pivot to the Up position to gain access to the
mounting screws, then re-align the mounting bracket against the transom of the boat to match
the traced silhouette. Check the bracket position with the level again to make sure it is still level,
then mark the third mounting hole using a pencil or marker. Unscrew and remove the mounting
screws and the transducer assembly and set aside.
7. Drill the third mounting hole, using a 5/32” drill bit. Use a marine-grade silicone sealant to fill all
three drilled mounting holes, especially if the holes penetrated the transom wall.
NOTE: On fiberglass hulls, it is best to use progressively larger drill bits to reduce the chance of chipping or flaking
the outer coating.
Fully Tighten All Three
Mounting Screws
8. Re-position the transducer assembly against the transom of the boat,
then hand-install all three screws. Make sure that the transducer
location and the pivot angle have not changed, then fully tighten all
three mounting screws. Snap the pivot back down. If you have
performed the preceding procedures correctly, the transducer should
be level and at the right height for optimal operation.
34
Locking Down the Transducer (Optional)
NOTE: You have the option to lock down the Two Piece Kick Up bracket if you do not want the transducer to kick
up. Please be aware, however, that the transducer can be damaged if it is locked down and it strikes debris in
the water.
Marking the Fourth Drill Hole
for Optional Lock Down
Fourth Hole
1. To lock down the transducer, trace the position of the mounting
bracket. Force the pivot to the Up position to gain access to the
mounting screws, then re-align the mounting bracket against the
transom of the boat to match the traced silhouette. Check the
bracket position with the level again to make sure it is still level,
then mark the fourth mounting hole using a pencil or marker.
Unscrew and remove the mounting screws and the transducer
assembly and set aside.
2. Drill the fourth mounting hole, using a 9/64" drill bit. Use a
marine grade silicone sealant to fill all four drilled mounting
holes, especially if the holes penetrate the transom wall.

edges and one in the 3rd mounting hole). Make sure that the
transducer location and the pivot angle have not changed, then
fully tighten all three mounting screws. Hand-tighten only!
4. Snap the pivot back down. Install #8 x 1" wood screw into the 4th
hole to lock down the pivot arm. Hand-tighten only!
35
Inside the Hull Transducer Installation
(1157c Combo models only)
NOTE: Do NOT install the 1197c Side Imaging transducer inside the hull, as the side
looking beams CANNOT penetrate the hull. Only the 1157c Dual Beam PLUS™ transducer
can be mounted inside the hull.
If you choose to mount your transducer inside the hull of your boat, perform the procedures in this section.
In-hull mounting generally produces good results in single thickness fiberglass-hulled boats. Humminbird®
cannot guarantee depth performance when transmitting and receiving through the hull of the boat, since
some signal loss occurs. The amount of loss depends on hull construction and thickness, as well as the
installation position and process.
This installation requires slow-cure two-part epoxy. Do not use silicone or any other soft adhesive to install
the transducer, as this material reduces the sensitivity of the unit. Do not use five-minute epoxy, as it has
a tendency to cure before all the air bubbles can be purged, thus reducing signal strength.
NOTE: In-hull mounting requires an installed and operational control head.
NOTE: The integral temperature probe will not work with in-hull mounting, so you may either want to consider
purchasing a Temperature/Speed accessory, a Temp. Sensor, or obtaining a different transducer. Humminbird®
offers a transducer exchange program to swap the NEW and UNASSEMBLED transducer, accompanied by
mounting hardware, for one without an integral temperature probe. Call the Humminbird® Customer Resource
Center at 1-800-633-1468 for details, or visit www.humminbird.com for more information.
NOTE: Your transducer may not look exactly like the transducer shown in the illustrations, but it will mount
in exactly the same way.
• Locate transducer mounting location
• Perform a trial installation
• Route the transducer cable
• Permanently mount the transducer.
1. Determine the transducer mounting location
Decide where to install the transducer on the inside of the hull. Consider the following to find the best
location:
• Observe the outside of the boat hull to find the areas that are mostly free from turbulent water.
Avoid ribs, strakes and other protrusions, as these create turbulence.

• As a general rule, the faster the boat can travel, the further aft and closer to the centerline of the
hull the transducer has to be located in order to remain in contact with the water at high speeds.
2. Trial installation
You will not be able to adjust the mounting after an inside the hull transducer is installed. It is best,
therefore, to perform a trial installation first that includes running the boat at various speeds, in order to
determine the best mounting area before permanently mounting the transducer.
1. Plug the transducer into the control head, then power up the control head. When the control
head detects a functioning transducer, it will automatically enter Normal operating mode.
2. View the sonar signal at its best by holding the transducer over the side, immersed in the water,
so that it is pointing straight down over a known flat bottom. Use the display to benchmark
against the sonar signal that will be detected once the transducer is placed in the hull.
3. Place the transducer body face down at the identified mounting location inside the hull, with the
end that has the mounting knuckle pointed towards the bow of the boat.
Preferred Mounting Area
37
4. Fill the hull with enough water to submerge the transducer body. Use a sand-filled bag or other
heavy object to hold the transducer in position. The transducer cannot transmit through air, and
the water purges any air from between the transducer and the hull, and fills any voids in the
coarse fiberglass surface.
5. View the sonar signal on the display and compare against what you observed in Step 2, making
sure that the boat is in the same location as it was during your observations in Step 2. If the
results are comparable, move on to Step 6. Otherwise, locate a new position in the hull and
repeat Steps 3 through 5.
6. Run the boat at various speeds and water depths while observing the screen on the control head.
If depth performance is required, test the transducer in water at the desired depth. If the
performane is acceptable, move on to Step 7. If the performance is not acceptable, repeat Steps
3 through 6.
7. Once you have determined the best mounting location using the above steps, mark the position
of the transducer.
3. Route the cable
1. Once the mounting location is determined and you have marked the position of the transducer,
route the cable from the transducer to the control head.
4. Permanently mount the transducer
1. Make sure the position of the transducer is marked.
2. You may have to disconnect the cable to the control head and reconnect it at the end of this
procedure.
3. Remove the water from inside the hull and thoroughly dry the mounting surface. If the surface is
excessively rough, it may be necessary to sand the area to create a smooth mounting surface.
4. Slowly and thoroughly mix an ample quantity of two-part slow cure epoxy. Avoid trapping air
bubbles.
38
5. Coat the face of the transducer and the inside of the hull with epoxy.
6. Press the transducer into place with a slight twisting motion to purge any trapped air from
underneath, keeping the end of the transducer that has the mounting knuckle pointed forward,
towards the bow of the boat.
NOTE: Proper operation requires the end of the transducer that has the mounting knuckle to face towards
the bow of the boat.
7. Weight the transducer so that it will not move while the epoxy is curing.
NOTE: When the epoxy cures, no water is necessary inside the hull.
8. If you unplugged the transducer cable at the beginning of this procedure, plug it back into the
control head.
NOTE: Neither water, spilled gasoline, nor oil will affect the performance of the transducer.
39
Trolling Motor Transducer Installation
If you want to install your transducer on a trolling motor, use this procedure. Several styles of the
transducer are compatible with trolling motor mounting. If you have a trolling motor bracket, refer to the
separate installation instructions that are included with the bracket.
Trolling Motor Transducer Options
If you don’t have a trolling motor transducer, there are several options:
• You may purchase a Trolling Motor Adapter kit that will allow you to
mount the transducer on the trolling motor.
• You may also exchange your NEW and UNASSEMBLED transducer
(with mounting hardware included) for a trolling motor transducer.
There are also several transducer switches available that support the following configurations:
• Two control heads with one transducer
• Two transducers with one control head.
NOTE: Call the Humminbird® Customer Resource Center at 1-800-633-1468 for details and pricing, or visit
www.humminbird.com for more information.
GPS Receiver Installation
To optimize performance of the GPS receiver, mount it in an area that has full exposure to the sky. The
effective area of reception is 10° above the horizon. Different circumstances determine the mounting
method appropriate for your GPS receiver.
If you have…
Then use:

The pinouts of the NMEA cable are as follows:
• Red Wire, +12V (output voltage only)
• Black Wire, Ground
• White Wire, NMEA Out.
CAUTION! Please use caution before connecting the red +12V wire to any other NMEA device. This is an output
voltage provided by the control head and GPS receiver and should only be connected to those NMEA devices that
need a 12 volt input.
40
Stem Mounting with an Existing 1" - 14 Thread Stem
Follow these steps to stem mount the GPS receiver:
NOTE: If you have an existing stem for mounting the GPS receiver, proceed directly to step 2 of the following
procedure.
1. Determine the best location to mount your GPS receiver. Preplan and test the cable routing to
your control head before any drilling or cutting of your boat surfaces. If you have purchased
hardware to stem mount your GPS receiver, follow the instructions included with that hardware
to mount the stem (antenna pole).
NOTE: AS-EC10 10' extension cables are available from Humminbird® if your planned routing exceeds 20', (6 m).
Maximum cable length, including extensions, should not exceed 50' (16 m).
NOTE: Remember to seal screw holes and drilled holes as needed with marine-grade silicone sealant to protect
your boat from water damage.
2. Screw on the receiver base to the stem first, making sure
that the stem pipe does not protrude from the receiver base.
This adds protection to the cable when pulling it through
the pipe stem. In addition to this, de-burr the pipe edges to
reduce cable abrasion.

Follow these steps to deck mount the GPS receiver when routing the cable down through the mounting
location:
1. Determine the best location, then test route the 20' (6 m) cable from the mounting location to the
control head.
NOTE: Installation details may vary with unit configuration.
2. Mark the mounting location and drill a 3/4" (19 mm) hole for the cable and cable plug. Route the
cable.
3. Cover the cable hole with the receiver. Make sure the receiver is flush on the surface and mark
the two mounting holes with a pencil or punch.
4. Move the receiver to the side and drill two pilot holes using a 9/64" (3.5 mm) bit.
NOTE: Remember to seal screw holes and drilled holes as needed with marine-grade silicone sealant to protect
your boat from water damage.
5. Align the GPS receiver screw holes over the pilot screw holes and attach with the #8 - 1 1/4"
Phillips head screws. Hand tighten only!
NOTE: If the mounting surface is thin and made of a lighter material, a backing material may be needed below
the mounting surface.
Access Under Mounting Location
No Access Under Mounting Location
42
No Access Under Mounting Location
Follow these steps to deck mount the GPS receiver in a situation where you must route the cable to the
side because there is no space for a cable underneath the mounting location.
1. Determine the best location, then test route the cable from the mounting location to the control
head.
NOTE: AS-EC10 10' extension cables are available from Humminbird® if your planned routing exceeds 20', (6 m).
Maximum cable length, including extensions, should not exceed 50' (16 m).
2. Confirm the cable length is good and route the cable from the receiver to the control head. If
holes are required to route the cable, they must be 3/4" (19 mm) to allow for the cable connector.
Secure the NMEA cable with electrical tape.
NOTE: Remember to seal screw holes and drilled holes as needed with marine-grade silicone sealant to protect
your boat from water damage.
3. The GPS receiver has two wire routing notches. Use the cable notch closest to the intended cable
route.
4. With the cable routed, position the GPS receiver in the planned mounting location and mark the
mounting holes with a pencil or punch.
5. Move the GPS receiver to the side and drill the two 9/64" (3.5 mm) pilot holes.
6. Align the GPS receiver's screw holes over the pilot screw holes and attach with the #8 - 1 1/4"
Phillips head screws. Hand tighten only!
43
Finish Routing the Cable and Check GPS Receiver Operation
After installing a GPS receiver, you should perform the following procedure to finish routing the GPS cable
to the control head and to check to make sure that the control head is working correctly.
1. Secure the cable along its path to the control head as needed with cable ties.
2. Plug the GPS receiver cable into the Communications port on the control head. See Testing the
System Installation to use the System Status start-up option and/or the GPS Diagnostic View to
confirm a good installation.

Testing the System Installation
After you have completed the installation of the control head and any other accessories such as the GPS
receiver, and have made all the cabling connections required, you must test the installation before using
the system.
To test the installation:
1. Press the POWER/LIGHT key on the control head once to turn on the control head. (There will be
an audible sound to let you know that you pressed the key, and the initial Title screen will appear.)
If the unit does not power up, make sure that power is available. While the Title screen is shown
on the display, press the MENU key to display 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 System Status from
the Start-Up Options menu (see the Start-Up Options Menu section for more information about
these menu choices). The System Status Self Test screen will appear.
NOTE: If you wait too long, the system will default to whichever menu mode happens to be highlighted, and you
will have to start again.
2. Self Test displays results from the internal diagnostic self test, including unit serial number,
Printed Circuit Board (PCB) serial number, software revision, total hours of operation and the
input voltage. See System Status for more information about the Self Test.
3. From the System Status screen, view accessory connections by pressing the VIEW key. See
System Status for more information about the Accessory Test.
NOTE: The speed will be detected only if the paddlewheel has moved since the 1100 Series™ has been
powered up.
4. From the System Status screen, see a GPS Diagnostic View by pressing the View key. 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 gray bar indicates that the satellite is being monitored, but is not yet being used. See
System Status for more information about the GPS Diagnostic View.
5. You are ready for on the water operation.

Understanding Sonar History
It is important to understand the significance of the 1100 Series™ 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.
50
Sonar 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.
NOTE: A sloping bottom will be represented as a thicker line across the display. Harder bottoms typically will be
displayed with red and softer bottoms typically will be displayed with blue.
The sonar returns from the bottom, structure and fish can be represented as either Structure ID® or
WhiteLine®. See Sonar Menu: Bottom View for details on how to set the bottom view.
Structure ID® represents weak returns in blue and strong returns in red.
51
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.
52
Understanding Side Imaging
(1197c SI Combo models only)
It is important to understand how Side Imaging technology produces the display available on the 1100
Series™. The images you see on the display are produced using sonar technology. The special transducer
produces three distinct beams – one beam facing down and two beams pointing out to the side. These “side
beams” are aimed at right angles to the path of the boat and, unlike the “down beam” which provide conical
coverage, the side beams provide coverage which is very thin front to back, yet very wide top to bottom.
The narrow aspect (front to back) of the beam illuminates a small strip of the bottom perpendicular to the
direction of the boat. Each time the unit “pings”, a strip of data representing all the echoes received by the
transducer, are put together on the display to form the image that you see. The rows closest to the boat
icon at the top of the display are the most recent sonar data. The information is scrolled down the screen
as new data, drawn at the top of the screen, becomes available.
455 kHz provides maximum coverage with 180° total beam width

The side beams can be operated at one of two frequencies: 455 kHz or 800 kHz. Selecting 800 kHz
produces the sharpest image while selecting 455 kHz provides greater bottom coverage area. It is
important to understand that when the boat turns, the strips to one side will begin to overlap and the
strips on the other side will fan out, providing some distortion to the image. Side beams look out
360 feet, with a depth limitation of 100 to 150 feet, depending on the contour of the bottom and when
the side beam frequency selection is set for 455 kHz. Please see the Side Imaging Sonar Tutorial at
www.humminbird.com for a more detailed explanation.
Your Side Imaging transducer also provides traditional sonar imaging at 200/83 kHz.

What’s on the Side Imaging Display
(1197c SI Combo models only)
Side Imaging displays a number of easily recognizable features that allow for accurate interpretation of
sonar return. For example, rock and gravel provide a clearer sonar return than mud and sand because of
that face away from the transducer. You can find a number of easily recognizable features on the Side
following items:
1
Depth - water depth; can be set to alarm when the
water becomes too shallow.
10
2 Temperature - water surface temperature
3 Speed - if a Speed accessory or GPS Receiver is
attached, the 1100 Series™ can display the speed
of the boat, and can keep a triplog of nautical or
statute miles traveled.
4 Course - the current direction the boat is traveling
measured in degrees from North.

water under the boat at a given time. Variations in the
width of the water column show variations in the
distance to the bottom as the boat passes over.
9 Shadows result from a lack of reflected sonar from
a particular area, and can be more valuable for
interpretation than the sonar reflected by the object
itself. Use shadows to help you see the image in 3
dimensions, oriented in space. You can gain insight
into the actual shape of an object, or the depth to
which it has sunk into the bottom, through shadows
on the display.

Side Imaging Technology: How It Works
(1197c SI Combo models only)
Side Imaging sonar uses two very precise sonar beams that are directed to either side of the boat and
“illuminate” the bottom contour, structure, and fish, and display results in a “picture-like” image.
• Side beams are extremely narrow from front to back, and provide “thin slices” of the bottom for
high resolution imaging.
• Side beams can search an area that is 720 feet wide (360 to each side), with a typical depth
performance of 150 feet when the side beam frequency selection is set for 455 kHz..
The main benefit of Side Imaging sonar to anglers is that it provides an overall survey of a large area of
water. This gives you a better understanding of the bottom topography and how structure is oriented for
more efficient fishing. Saltwater anglers pick up precise details of popular fishing structure like wrecks,
reefs, humps and drop-offs, as well as being able to spot bait balls in open water. Freshwater anglers can
see fish-attracting structure such as timber, stumps, rocks and creek beds.

Side Imaging: On the Water Interpretation
(1197c SI Combo models only)
Use the following side imaging examples to help you interpret the side imaging display.
Imaging Tips
Boat speed: Side imaging is best performed at boat speeds between 2 to 6 mph. If the boat is stationary,
the same information is displayed over and over. If the boat is moving very quickly, there will be gaps
between the strips of information. The best boat speed to use will depend on the side range selected.
Slower speeds are good for longer ranges, while faster speeds can be used at shorter ranges.
Boat navigation: It is important to understand that when the boat turns, successive beam strips to one
side will begin to overlap and the strips on the other side will fan out, providing some distortion to the
image. Because of this, the best imaging performance is produced by straight line navigation and minimal
side-to-side boat motion (i.e. wave induced, etc.) This applies to navigation by either the main engine or
the trolling motor. Minimize turning time and avoid wave action that induces large side-to-side rocking of
the boat. For example, if there is a lot of wave activity, try to move the boat so that it is perpendicular to
the waves instead of parallel with the waves in order to minimize the side-to-side rocking of the boat.
Beam Coverage: When there is an area directly under the boat that does not have SI beam coverage, this
area will be covered by the standard 200/83 kHz down-looking beam and displayed in the Sonar views. The
net effect of this, on the display, is that a single object may appear as two separate entities when in reality,
it is one continuous object. See Submerged Bridge: A Closer Perspective and the Submerged Bridge
graphics on the next page for examples of this.

VIEW PRESET Keys
The VIEW PRESET keys are used to program your three favorite views for quick retrieval.
Instead of using the VIEW key to cycle through every view to find the one you want, you
can program the VIEW PRESET keys to display a specific view immediately. To program
each VIEW PRESET key, use the VIEW key to cycle to the view you want to store. Press and
hold one of the VIEW PRESET keys for several seconds. A chime will indicate that the view
has been saved. You can store up to three views, one on each key.
EXIT Key
The EXIT key has multiple functions, depending on the situation:
• If an alarm is sounding, pressing EXIT will cancel the alarm.
• If a menu tab is selected, pressing EXIT will exit the menu mode and return to the view.
• If a menu is active, pressing EXIT will return to the previous level in the menu system.
• Pressing EXIT will cycle through the available views in reverse order.
• If Freeze Frame is active, pressing EXIT will return to a scrolling display.
• If the Cursor is active, pressing EXIT will remove the cursor from the display. Pressing Exit will also
remove any display boxes or waypoint thumbnail views from the screen.
INFO Key
Press the INFO key while in any navigation view to display information about objects that
are nearest to an active cursor.
If the cursor is not active, the following menu will be displayed. Use the
4-WAY Cursor Control key to select Nearest Port, Nearest Tide Station
or Nearest Current Station, then use the RIGHT Cursor key to display
the requested information.
NOTE: In non-NVB models,the built-in UniMap™ does not contain Port, Tide
or Current information, and this information is only available from optional
purchase MMC/SD cards. In NVB models, your units also comes with a builtin UniMap™ that contains Port, Tide or Current information.
On the Chart View, you can use the INFO key to get information on the chart objects near the cursor as
well as to view Screen Snapshots. See Snapshot and Recording View for more information.
63
MARK Key
Press the MARK key while in any view to mark the position of a waypoint, either at the
current boat location, or, if the Cursor is active, at the current Cursor location.
The MARK key only functions if you have the GPS receiver connected, or if you have enabled Screen
Snapshot from the Accessories menu tab. If you have enabled the Screen Snapshot feature, pressing the
MARK key still creates a waypoint, but it also captures the screen image to the optional-purchase
MMC/SD card and will add a thumbnail to the waypoint.
NOTE: You must have an optional-purchase MMC/SD card installed for the screen snapshot feature to work.
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.
GOTO Key
The GOTO Key has multiple functions, depending on the situation:
• If the Cursor is active, pressing the GOTO key while in any view creates a waypoint and starts
navigation towards that waypoint. If the Cursor is not active, pressing the GOTO key displays the
list of waypoints, so that you can select the waypoint towards which you want to navigate.
• If the GOTO key is pressed and held for more than 1.5 seconds, the Man Overboard (MOB) function
is activated. 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 begins immediately. The view is
switched to the Chart View automatically when MOB is activated, and it is not possible to activate
MOB or modify the current route without first canceling MOB navigation. 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.
ZOOM (+/-) Keys
Press the - or + ZOOM keys while in any of the Navigation Views or the Sonar Zoom View
to change the scale of the view to appear closer or farther away.
Press the - or + ZOOM keys while in the Side Imaging View to change the scale of the view.

Sonar View
Sonar View presents a historical log of sonar returns. 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 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).
Freeze Frame - Pressing any arrow on the 4-WAY Cursor Control key will freeze the screen in the Sonar
View and a cursor and cursor dialog box 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.
NOTE: On any 2D Sonar view, the whole height of the screen can be used to display sonar. Simply turn off the
selectable readout that is below the water column.

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 upper left corner and can be changed to suit conditions. Upper and
Lower Zoom Depth Range numbers indicate the depth of the water which is being viewed.
Freeze Frame - Pressing any arrow on the 4-WAY Cursor Control key will freeze the screen in the Sonar
Zoom View and a cursor and cursor dialog box 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.
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.

Side/Sonar Combo View
(1197c SI Combo models only)
Side/Sonar Combo View shows regular sonar information and side imaging sonar information in a
combination split screen. You can perform any of the functions for either of these views, but only when
the view you want to control is selected as the active side (see Sonar X-Press™ Menu: Active Side or
Side Imaging X-Press™ Menu: Active Side for more information). You can also adjust the size of the left
side of a split screen (see Sonar X-Press™ Menu: Split Position or Side Imaging X-Press™ Menu: Split
Position for more information).
In this view, you can change which side you look at, the sensitivity of the sonar to allow you to see more
or less, the range of the side beams, the scrolling speed of the chart, and the color scheme of the display.
NOTE: See Side Imaging View and Sonar View for more information about each side of this view.
NOTE: This view is only available on 1197c SI Combo models.

Snapshot and Recording View
Snapshot and Recording View displays and allows you to view both screen snapshot thumbnails and
recording icons captured to an optional-purchase MMC/SD card installed in your unit. In addition, when you
are in the Snapshot and Recording View, Start Recording, Stop Recording, Delete Image, Delete All Images,
Delete Recording, Delete All Recordings, Pings Per Second, Playback Speed and Stop Playback are added to
the X-Press™ menu.
The Snapshot and Recording View displays up to three screen snapshot thumbnails or recording icons on
the screen at a time; you may have to scroll using the 4-WAY Cursor keys to see the whole list of
thumbnails and/or icons in this view. The selected thumbnail or icon will be highlighted with arrows.
NOTE: The speed of the screen capture or of the recording depends on the type of card you use; in general, SD
cards capture the screen faster than MMC cards do.
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 Screen Snapshot 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 Screen Snapshot 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.

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.
Waypoint Thumbnails: On the Chart View, you can use the INFO key to view Screen Snapshot as Waypoint
thumbnails. Waypoints thumbnails are created while the Snapshot feature is turned on. They are linked to
snapshot waypoints. Before these snapshot waypoints are edited for the first time, they are assigned a
filename that begins with an S and is followed by several numbers, and are represented by the camera icon.
NOTE: You must have an MMC/SD card installed to store or view waypoint thumbnails. If you press the INFO key
while the cursor is on a snapshot waypoint and the MMC/SD card is missing, only the normal chart information
will be displayed.
When the cursor is active on the Chart View and snaps to one of these snapshot waypoints, a waypoint
thumbnail will be displayed. Pressing the INFO key while the cursor is near one of these snapshot
waypoints will make the full snapshot appear on the screen. Pressing the EXIT key will show the cursor on
the waypoint, with the waypoint thumbnail displayed.
75
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, 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.

Highlighting a recording: You can scroll through the whole list of recording icons available in the
Snapshot and Recording View using the 4-WAY Cursor keys. The highlighted icon will be surrounded by
arrows, and a green play triangle will appear to its right.
Playing back a recording: Highlight a recording icon (using the Up or Down 4-Way Cursor keys), then use
the Right 4-Way Cursor key to start playback. During playback, all active navigation is cancelled, all other
thumbnails and icons will disappear, and a "Playback" message box similar to the Simulation message will
be displayed periodically. When playback begins, the view is automatically switched to the primary Sonar
View for your model, and no live sonar data will be displayed; only recorded sonar and GPS data will be
shown, and the Snapshot and Recording View will display the playback status. You can change the speed,
skip to the beginning or end of playback, and even reverse playback, using the Playback Speed X-Press™
menu item, and stop the playback using the Stop Playback X-Press™ menu item; these items are added to
the X-Press™ menus in all views during playback. In the Snapshot and Recording View only, playback
speed can also be changed using the Left and Right 4-Way Cursor keys. Playback is paused when the
sonar cursor is active and resumes playing when the cursor is removed. Playback is automatically paused
when the end of the recording is reached.
77
NOTE: Sonar chart speed is increased during Fast Forward and reversed during Rewind. This may reduce the
quality of the sonar image, since at higher speeds, not every sonar return can be processed and displayed.
NOTE: Navigation is not affected by the Sonar Recording feature, but any active navigation is cancelled when
playback begins or ends.

Side Beam View
(with optional-purchase QuadraBeam PLUS™ transducer only)
Side Beam View is only available if you have connected a QuadraBeam™ transducer accessory and when
Transducer Select is set to QuadraBeam (see Sonar Menu Tab: Transducer Select). This view shows sonar
information from both the left and right 455 kHz beams and the 200 kHz down-looking beam in one view.
You can customize the way the sonar data is displayed in the Side Beam View to suit your personal
preferences. Depending on the layout selected from the Quad Layout Sonar X-Press™ menu (only available
on the Sonar X-Press™ menu when in Side Beam View), the display will represent the same sonar data in
one of the following three layouts: Default, Classic, and Slanted.
Default layout: The top portion of the display presents a historical log of sonar returns from the 200 kHz
down-looking sonar beam. New information in the down beam panel scrolls from right to left. The bottom
portion of the display presents a historical log of sonar returns from the 455 kHz right- and left-looking
sonar beams. New information in the side beam panels scrolls from the center out.

In all of these layouts, the sonar information from the side-looking beams reveals bottom contour, structure
and fish similar to the down-looking beam, but the area covered is to the left and right of the area shown
in the down-looking portion, so you actually see more of the bottom. The distance covered by the right and
left beams is based on the depth setting for the down-looking beam, up to a maximum of 160 feet.

Bird's Eye View
Bird's Eye View shows a 3D perspective view of the track and the chart land contour from a point above
and behind the boat (the eye point).
As the boat turns, the eye point moves to follow the boat. When you press the 4-WAY Cursor key in any of the
Bird’s Eye Views, the position of the eye point will shift. This allows you to move and turn the eye point so that
you can look off to the sides, or even behind the boat. Pressing the RIGHT or LEFT arrow keys on the 4-WAY Cursor
key turns the eye point right or left, while pressing the UP arrow key moves the eye point forward, and pressing
the DOWN arrow key moves the eye point backward.
Pressing the EXIT key moves the eye point back to its original position behind and above the boat.
NOTE: Only the standard configuration readouts are shown in the graphics. Readouts can be customized to suit
your needs.
NOTE: If all selectable readout boxes are turned off below the Bird's Eye pane, the window will stretch to fill
the whole vertical pane. See Navigation X-Press™ menu: Select Readouts for more information.

Chart Orientation
All the chart views allow you to choose the orientation of the chart. 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). See Navigation Menu Tab: Chart
Orientation for more information.
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 Bullseye Cursor is drawn at the top of the screen and is linked to the
boat by a yellow line, even if the boat is off the screen. At the same time, a cursor dialog box is displayed
at the top of the screen with the distance and bearing from the boat to the cursor position and the
latitude/longitude coordinates of the cursor. When the cursor is active on the display, you can also use the
4-WAY Cursor Control key to move the cursor diagonally.
Chart View with Cursor Present, with optional-purchase Navionics® cartography
Zooming: Use the Plus (+) key to Zoom In and the Minus (-) key to Zoom Out showing the cartography
at different scales. The scale is indicated on the left side of the display. If you zoom in beyond the
available chart data, the display will go into Overzoom mode whereby the last available chart data is
amplified to reflect the scale selected. If you zoom in so far that no cartography is available, a lat/lon
grid will be drawn instead.
93
NOTE: Your Chart screen will automatically declutter and simplify as you zoom out. When you zoom out, all
waypoint icons that might otherwise overlap each other will declutter the screen by changing into very small blue
icons, and individual waypoint names will be hidden. When you're panning, and your cursor snaps to a waypoint
that is using the declutter icon, that waypoint will display its full-size icon and name temporarily (until you move
the cursor off of it). In addition, when a waypoint name will write on top of another waypoint, the name will be
truncated until the cursor snaps to it. Different waypoints will use the declutter feature at different zoom levels.
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 using the 4-WAY Cursor Control key.
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.
Screen Snapshots: Use the INFO and 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to view thumbnails of your Screen
Snapshots using snapshot waypoints. Snapshot waypoints are waypoints that are created while the
Snapshot feature is turned on. See Snapshot and Recording View for more information.
NOTE: You must have an MMC/SD card installed to store or view waypoint thumbnails. If you press the INFO key
while the cursor is on a snapshot waypoint and the MMC/SD card is missing, only the normal chart information
will be displayed.
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 Bullseye Cursor will be centered over
the port position. The Cursor Information Boxes will indicate the distance and bearing to the port from your
present position. Press the EXIT key again to return to the Chart View.
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 Bullseye Cursor will be centered over the tide station position. The cursor
information boxes will indicate the distance and bearing to the tide station from your present position.
Press the EXIT key again to return to the Chart View.
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 Bullseye Cursor will be centered over the current station position. The Cursor
Information Boxes will indicate the distance and bearing to the current station from your present position.
Press the EXIT key again to return to the Chart View.

Introduction to Navigation
Use the 1100 Series™ to establish waypoints at areas of interest and to navigate to those waypoints via a
saveable 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 1100
Series™ 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 1100 Series™ can store up to 50 routes that can each contain up
to 50 waypoints.
Tracks consist of detailed position history, and are displayed as a breadcrumb trail of trackpoints. The
Current Track shows the position history since the unit was powered up (maximum of 20,000 trackpoints
displayed). You can clear the Current Track or save it at any time. Your 1100 Series™ can store up to 50
saved tracks, each containing 20,000 trackpoints. The current track represents your actual path so far.
Save, Edit, or Delete a Waypoint
Save your current position as a waypoint: On any view, press the MARK key to save the current position
of the boat as a waypoint.
Save the cursor position as a waypoint: On the Chart or Combo view, use the Cursor key to designate the
position you want to save as a waypoint. Then press the MARK key to save the marked position as a waypoint.
Save a position from the sonar history: Use the Cursor key to point to a feature in the sonar history (also
called the Sonar Saver feature). Press the MARK key to create a waypoint at the location where that sonar
reading was taken. The new waypoint will also record the depth at that location.

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 a 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, a 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.
101
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.

QUICK TIPS:
• When your cursor is within a menu tab, press the EXIT key to jump directly to the top of the tab.
• If you are at the bottom of a menu tab, press the DOWN Cursor key to jump directly to the top of
the tab.
• If you're at the left or right of a menu tab, you can also jump to the other side by pressing the LEFT
or RIGHT cursor keys repeatedly until you have moved past the end of the menu.
• A down arrow at the bottom of a menu means that you can scroll to additional menu choices using
the DOWN Cursor key.
• A right or left arrow on a menu choice means that you can use the RIGHT or LEFT Cursor keys to
make changes or to see more information.
• If you press MENU or EXIT to leave the main menu system, and then you return to the main menu
using the MENU key, you will be at the same main menu tab you were on when you last displayed
the main menu.
Total Screen Update: When you change any menu settings that affect the view you are in, the view will
update immediately (i.e. you don’t have to exit the menu to apply the change to the screen).
User Mode (Normal or Advanced): The Main Menu choices will vary depending on whether you are in
Normal or Advanced User Mode. An Advanced Mode is provided for users who desire the highest level of
control over the 1100 Series™ and Normal Mode for users who desire greater simplicity and fewer menu
choices. Additional Advanced menu choices will be displayed throughout the menu system when you
navigate to specific menus while in Advanced Mode. Any changes made while in Advanced Mode will
remain in effect after you switch back to Normal Mode. See Setup Menu Tab: User Mode for specific
instructions on changing to the User Mode.

108
GPS Diagnostic View
GPS Diagnostic View, which is only available when a GPS Receiver is attached to your 1100 Series, 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 gray 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.

Active Side
Active Side allows you to select which side of a Combo View will be
active; key presses will only affect the active side of the screen. When a menu is displayed, the non-active
side of the screen will be grayed out; at any other time, a green arrow will point to the active side. Combo
Views usually display sonar on the left, with charts or Bird’s Eye usually on the right. The Active Side menu
choice is only available when a Combo View is active.
To select the Active Side:
1. Highlight Active Side on the Sonar X-Press™ Menu.
2. Use the RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control key to change which side is active. (Left, Right, Default =
Left, or Sonar).
Split Position
Split Position allows you to adjust what percentage of the screen is
taken up by the left side of any Combo View; each view may be adjusted independently; you must be in a
specific view to adjust the screen size for that view. The number setting indicates the percentage taken up
by the left side of the Combo View; selecting Left sets the left side of the screen to its smallest setting. The
Split Position menu choice is only available when a Combo View is active.
To Adjust Split Screen Position
1. Highlight Split Position on the Sonar X-Press™ Menu.
2. Use the RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control key to change the size of the left side of a Combo View.
(Left, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, Right, Default varies)
111
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.
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)
Sensitivity at Low
Sensitivity at Medium

112
Upper Range
(Advanced: Sonar, Split Sonar and Active Sonar Side Views only)
Upper Range sets the shallowest depth range that will be displayed on the Sonar, Split Sonar and Active
Sonar Side 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 and Active Sonar
Side 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 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

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
131
When Fish ID+™ is turned off, the 1100 Series™ 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+™ setting On or Off. (Off,

Fish ID Sensitivity
Fish ID 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 1100 Series™ to identify sonar
returns as fish.
To change the Fish ID Sensitivity setting:
1. Highlight Fish ID Sensitivity on the Sonar main menu.
2. Use the LEFT or RIGHT 4-WAY Cursor Control keys to change the Fish Sensitivity setting.

Max Depth
(Advanced)
Max Depth adjusts the maximum depth of operation. The performance of your 1100 Series™ can be tuned
to the maximum depth you will be fishing in by setting the Max Depth. When a maximum depth is set,
your 1100 Series™ will not attempt to acquire sonar data below that depth, thus increasing overall
performance.
When Max Depth is set to Auto, the 1100 Series™ 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 1100 Series™ cannot locate the bottom. The Max Depth menu choice is available
when User Mode is set to Advanced (see Setup Menu Tab: User Mode).
NOTE: Max Depth controls the down beam reading. The SI Range (Side Imaging Range) controls the side beams
and down beam reading at the same time. If SI Range is set to a deeper range than the Max Depth setting, your
1100 Series™ will default to the SI Range setting. For example, if you set the Max Depth to 50 feet and then set
the SI Range to 150 feet, your 1100 Series™ will acquire bottom readings from 150 feet (see Side Imaging
X-Press™ Menu: SI Range).
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 setting. (AUTO, 10

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,

Screen Snapshot is enabled, pressing the MARK key creates a saved screen capture on the optionalpurchase 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 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 highlighted image, or all images, by selecting a thumbnail and using Delete
Image, or using Delete All Images from the Screen Snapshot X-Press™ menu. You can view these captures
on the Chart and the Snapshot and Recording views, which show any existing thumbnails of the screen
captures.
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 control heads that have different screen sizes, the Screen
Snapshot 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.
172
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.

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 X-Press™ 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.
To view a screen snapshot using snapshot waypoints:
1. Make sure that the optional-purchase MMC/SD card used to capture the snapshot waypoints is
installed in your card slot.
2. Press the VIEW key until you see the Chart View.
3. Move the cursor until you are over a snapshot waypoint. A thumbnail will be displayed within a
frame, and a line that points from the center of the cursor icon to the center of the thumbnail.
Press the INFO key to view that screen snapshot.
4. Pressing the EXIT key will show the cursor on the waypoint, with the snapshot thumbnail
displayed again.
NOTE: The waypoints that are created by a snapshot have the same name as the file and use a custom waypoint
icon. Screen 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.
173
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.
1100 Series™ Doesn’t Power Up
If your 1100 Series™ doesn’t power up, use the Installation section of this manual for specific confirmation
details, making sure that:
• the power cable is properly connected to the 1100 Series™ 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.
1100 Series™ Defaults to Simulator with a Transducer Attached
A connected and functioning transducer will cause the newly-started 1100 Series™ to go into Normal
operating mode automatically. If, when you power up the 1100 Series™, 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 section of this manual, check to make sure that the transducer cable is
securely connected to the 1100 Series. Reconnect if necessary, and power up the 1100 Series™
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.
174
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 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.
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 boats engine may be interfering with sonar
reception. See Finding the Cause of Noise for more information.
175
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.
181
Glossary
Sonar Terms
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.
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. 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.

Glossary
Sonar Terms
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. 640 V x 320 H), 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.
183
Glossary
Sonar Terms
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.
184
Glossary
Sonar Terms
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 OneTouch® 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.

Glossary
GPS and 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.

GPS and Navigation Terms
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 stamp-sized 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.

GPS and Navigation Terms
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.
