we realized when we are at full speed, the fishfinder is almost out of the water... however, the finder is already low on the transom, it actually hangs a little under the transom, maybe half transducer is below....
so, i will move it lower to prevent it from coming out of the water.... but besides that what could the problem be?? maybe the angle is not set correctly??
by the way, i had to route the transducer cable parallel to some electrical cables, but tried to separate them, and didnt use the same ties, in order to prevent a possible interference. i also let the transducer cable hang loose while the electrical cables are tight, so there is not much contact between them... i dont know if this works or not, but thought it couldnt hurt....

Angle could be an issue, hull location can be an issue too.

i mounted mine using an old trolling motor mount, took the motor out put a pipe in there attached the transducer to the end of the pipe ran the cable up the pipe to the unit and now i can lower it into the water a good foot below everything making noise, that got rid of the clutter and bad readings and made it more accurate but if i raise it up to the surface or pull it out of the water it finds lots of fish and stuff.
so i have no clue why your having the problem your having with it, id say call the toll free tech support and see what they say?

the reason i put it there and not where i removed the old transducer, is because on the instructions it said to measure at least 15" from the end of the prop to the transducer... so right now the transducer is at 15", the old location was about 11" from the prop...
so, what do you suggets?? should i move it to the original position, and tilt it a little more downwards??

make something up as a temporary mount that you can move around and etc... just sticking it at the old spot might not be any good either if it starts getting clutter from the engine boat hull etc...
