Customer Question
I have a E120...

I have a E120 Raymarine GPS etc with a transducer bought about 2013 and professionally installed about 2015.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Electronics Specialist can help you best.

When i start the engine i lose the depth on the sounder....8 times out off 10.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Electronics Specialist should know?
