eagle cuda 168 screwy temps.

Recommended Posts

last time i was out, the water was in the low 80's but my little eagle cuda said that the temp was -4°????? it was providing pretty accurate depth readings, but for some reason the temperature was way off. it wasnt like this the time before last. any ideas as to why its like that?

I can give you $100 worth of reasons ;D.  I actually have the large screed version of this unit and have had a few hickups with it but never had the temp go out.  If all else still works I wouldn't worry to much about it.  Get a small meat thermometer ($2) and keep it with you if temp is that much of a concern.  Otherwise you are looking at replacing the transducer for about $45.  I say get the meat thermometer and go pick up some Lucky Craft cranks with the money you saved.

oh man that really sucks.

is there a chance the temperature might suddenly be accurate again?

so far i have taken it out two times and it said -4.0° both times and it never changed.

The only way to test it that I know of, is put it in a bucket of water, that you have predetermined the temp of, with a meat thermometer.

Maybe shock, it, one exteme to the other.

If it went out suddenly it is possible that it will come back on suddenly.  But then again, maybe not.  

Do you really use temperatures that much?  I know I use them to some degree (no pun intended) in the spring and fall but I don't rely that heavily on it.  Plus it is only giving you surface temps.  I would say forget about it and go without.  Or get a cheep digital meat thermometer with the cable and probe and hang it overboard.
