Customer Question

Just installed my Elite 5 HDI. Worked fine after mounting transducer, connecting wiring and while completing mounting. Inserted 2015 Fishing Hot Spots Pro USA and worked fine. Went inside for about 2 hours and returned to show my wife after she returned home. The screen opened as normal with Elite Lowrance on the screen but after about 15 seconds the screen value lowered and continued to show Elite Lowrance with change. Read that to restart: press +/_ button and then Start button and hold until an american flag appears then release. I did this but no change....
