Customer Question
Hi I’m Shane from...

Hi I’m Shane from Merimbula NSW south coast Australia. I have a HDS 7 with a total scan transducer on my Hobie 14 PA kayak. For some reason the water temperature has stopped displaying as an overlay on selected screens. At the moment the unit is out of the water in my garage at home. I have checked the temp option in settings which shows that the Celsius temp is selected. All the latest software upgrades are installed and up to date. Any ideas ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Marine Electronics Specialist should be aware of?

I don’t think so...

Do you just have 1 screen or multiple? If you only have 1 your transducer isn't acting right. If you have multiple it's2 the nmea 2000 cable most likely

No I do not want to switch to telephone and pay more money. I was of the impression that my $5 deposit and initial charge would cover things. Where to now?
