Important Safety Information
WARNING
See the Important Safety and Product Information guide in the
chartplotter product box for product warnings and other
important information.
You are responsible for the safe and prudent operation of your
vessel. Sonar is a tool that enhances your awareness of the
water beneath your boat. It does not relieve you of the
responsibility of observing the water around your boat as you
navigate.
• You must install the sonar module in a location with adequate
ventilation where it will not be exposed to extreme
temperatures.
• You should mount the transducer in a location where it will
not be jarred when launching, hauling, or storing.
• You should mount the transducer in a location where it is not
behind strakes, struts, fittings, water intake or discharge
ports, thru-hull transducers, or anything that creates air
bubbles or causes the water to become turbulent. Turbulent
water may interfere with the sonar beam.
• You should mount the transducer as close to the center line
of the boat as possible.
• When mounted farther from the center of the transom, a
greater deadrise can cause the boat hull
to interfere with
the sonar beam , and can cause inconsistent detection on
the opposite side of the boat . The transducer is shown
from behind.
CAUTION
Failure to install and maintain this equipment in accordance with
these instructions could result in damage or injury.
Always wear safety goggles, ear protection, and a dust mask
when drilling, cutting, or sanding.
NOTICE
When drilling or cutting, always check what is on the opposite
side of the surface.
To obtain the best performance and to avoid damage to your
boat, you must install the Garmin device according to these
instructions.
Read all installation instructions before proceeding with the
installation. If you experience difficulty during the installation, go
to support.garmin.com for more information.

NOTICE
Separating the Siamese cables near the rotating joint on a
cable-steered trolling motor reduces stress and extends the life
of the cables.
Zip ties and cable clamps can over-tighten and damage or break
the cable, or cause cable fatigue due to repeated rotation of the
motor.
Tools Needed
You should use black electrical tape to secure the cables above
and below the rotating joint. If you secure the cables with zip
ties, do not over-tighten the zip ties.
You should secure the cables above and below the pivot joint of
your trolling motor.
You should create a service loop at least 25 cm (10 in.) long in
the cables, with the rotating joint centered on the loop.
You should use the included tool, a flathead screwdriver, or a
blunt knife to separate the cables.

Installing the Transducer on a Trolling Motor
Assembling the Trolling Motor Barrel Mount Hardware
1 Align the top of the transducer with the top of the bracket
.
5 Ensure the cables have a gap of at least 10 cm ( 4 in.) above
and 10 cm (4 in.) below
the split portion of the cable and
are centered on the rotating joint . This creates a loop
in
the cable over the rotating joint. The loop must be large
enough to allow full rotation of the transducer in both
directions. Allow a minimum of 25 cm (10 in.) of cable to
cover the 20 cm (8 in.) section between mounting points.
2 Using the included hex wrench, attach the bracket to the
transducer with the shoulder screw , rubber washer , and
flat washer .
NOTE: You must fully tighten the mount to the transducer.
The recommended torque applied to the shoulder screw is
2.5 lb-ft. (3.4 N-m).
Separating the Transducer Cables
Before you separate the cables, you should test-fit the
transducer. The cables should be at room temperature when
you separate them.
1 With the transducer dry fitted to the trolling motor, mark the
location the transducer cable crosses the rotating joint .
6 Use the black electrical tape
to secure the transducer
cable to the shaft. The split section of the cable should
extend under the tape.
7 Test the full rotation of the trolling motor to ensure the cables
clear the rotating joint and are not pulled due to tension
during rotation.

Calibrating the Compass
Before you can calibrate the compass, the transducer must be
installed on the shaft far enough away from the trolling motor to
avoid magnetic interference, and deployed in the water.
Calibration must be of sufficient quality to enable the internal
compass.
NOTE: To use the compass, you must mount the transducer on
the transom or the trolling motor shaft. The compass may not
work when you mount the transducer on the motor.
NOTE: For best results, you should use a heading sensor such
as the SteadyCast™ heading sensor.
You can begin turning your boat before calibrating, but you must
fully rotate your boat 1.5 times during calibration.
