4. Drill the four mounting hole locations using a 3/16” (4.5 mm approximately) drill bit.
5. At a location inside the dotted line on the template, drill a 3/8” (9.5 mm) diameter
saw blade entry hole. Carefully begin cutting toward the dotted line, then continue
cutting along the inside of the dotted line around the template.
WARNING! The corner cut lines are critical to the installation. Carefully cut along the
inside of the line.
6. Test the fit of the control head in the mounting hole and make adjustments to the
mounting hole, if needed. Remove the control head and the template when finished.
7. Peel the adhesive from the rubber gasket. With the adhesive side down, align the
gasket’s screw holes with the holes on the control head. Gently press the gasket
around the perimeter of the control head to assure it adheres.

Routing the Cables
ROUTE AND CONNECT THE CABLES
Use the procedures in the following section to route and connect all cables to the control
head.
CAUTION! Do NOT mount the cables where the connectors could be submerged in
water or flooded. If cables are installed in a splash-prone area, it may be helpful to
apply dielectric grease to the inside of the connectors to prevent corrosion. Dielectric
grease can be purchased separately from a general hardware or automotive store.
NOTE: If a cable is too short for your application, extension cables are available. For
assistance, contact Customer Service at humminbird.com or call 1-800-633-1468.
1. Route the accessory cables to the control head.
Routing the Cables to the Control Head
2. Connect the cable connectors to the appropriate ports on the control head. The ports are
labeled, and the connectors are keyed to prevent incorrect installation.
3. Hand-tighten the screw nut on each cable to secure the connection. Any unused ports
should be covered with the port covers to prevent potential damage.
4. Apply labels to the cables (optional). Use nylon cable ties (not included) to secure the

MAINTENANCE
Your control head is designed to provide years of trouble-free use with very little maintenance. Use the following procedures to ensure your
Humminbird continues to deliver top performance.
Control Head Maintenance
It is important to consider the following precautions when using your Humminbird control head:
• Chemicals, such as those found in bug spray and sunscreen, may cause permanent damage to the control head screen. Such damage
is not covered by the warranty.
• NEVER leave the control head in a closed car or trunk. The high temperatures generated in hot weather can damage the electronics.
• When the control head is not in use, cover the unit with the control head cover.
• Repairs should be performed only by an authorized technician.
Use the following information to keep the control head and screen clean.
• Screen: To clean the control head screen, use a mild soap (such as a non-abrasive liquid hand soap) and warm water. Wipe the
screen dry with a soft cloth. Be careful to avoid scratching the screen. If water spots remain, use a solution of water and vinegar.
WARNING! Do not use a chemical glass cleaner on the screen. Chemicals in the solution may cause cracking in the lens of the
unit.
NOTE: Do not wipe the screen while dirt or grease is on the screen.
• Control Head: If the control head comes into contact with salt spray, wipe the affected surfaces with a cloth dampened with fresh
water.
Transducer Maintenance
If you have a transducer installed on your boat, use the following information to maintain transducer operation.
• If your boat remains in the water for long periods of time, algae and other marine growth can reduce the effectiveness of the
transducer. Periodically clean the face of the transducer with a mild, marine-safe and plastic-safe soap or solution.
NOTE: To clean the transducer, you may need to pivot the transducer up in the bracket. See the installation guide included with
your transducer for more information.
• If your boat remains out of the water for a long period of time, it may take some time to wet the transducer when it is returned to
the water. Small air bubbles can climb to the surface of the transducer and interfere with proper operation. These bubbles dissipate
with time, or you can wipe the face of the transducer with your fingers after the transducer is in the water.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Before contacting Humminbird Customer Service, 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.
Control Head Doesn’t Power Up
If your control head 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 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.
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:
Display Problems
The control head loses power at high
speeds.
Possible Solutions
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 32 Volts.
Finding the Cause of Noise
Electrical noise usually affects the display with many black dots at high speeds, and high sensitivity readings. See the table below for
possible sources that 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 the 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 cable and transducer cables (depending
on your system configuration) away from the engine wiring.
20
Troubleshooting
Sonar Display Problems
The troubleshooting information in the table below applies to units connected to a transducer and black box sonar (separate purchases
required).
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. Also, see the installation
guides included with the transducer and black box sonar.
Sonar Display Problems
Possible Solutions
Using the installation guide included with your black box sonar, check to make sure
that the transducer cable is securely connected to the black box sonar. Next, confirm
the black box sonar cable is securely connected to the control head. Reconnect the
cables if necessary, and power up the unit again to see if this fixes the problem.
Control head doesn’t display sonar data.
Replace the non-functioning transducer with a known good transducer if available and
power up the control head again.
Check the transducer cable and black box sonar cable. Replace the cables if damaged
or corroded.
When the boat moves at higher speeds,
the bottom disappears or suddenly
weakens, or the display contains gaps.
There are no fish detected, even when
you know they are in the water under
the boat, or sonar readings seem weak
or faulty.
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 the installation guide for your transducer for instructions 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.
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. See the installation guide for your transducer
for instructions on adjusting the transducer position, 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.
Cavitation from the boat’s propeller
Troubleshooting
Turbulence created by the propeller can cause noise. Confirm the transducer has been
properly installed according to its specific mounting requirements (see the installation
guide included with your transducer and black box sonar). Also, make sure that the
water flows smoothly over the face of the transducer at all times.
