Hello, my name is***** will be assisting you today.Your DSI is actually just a low speed transducer, it will not read at speeds above 30 MPH. If you wish to read depths at speeds above that, you would need to install a high speed transducer and a "Y" cable in the lines to the unit. To get the fish mode on the menu, make sure that advanced mode is checked in the settings menu.
