I have a raymarine fishfinder model L365 that I bought in

Customer Question

I have a raymarine fishfinder model L365 that I bought in 2003. Everything works fine except the paddle-wheel speedometer feature. It works intermittently. I have tested it out of the water and it is intermittent there also.
JA: 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?

HI Michael,
I already knew that I could look on line to try to find a new transponder. I haven't found one. If you know of some special source of these trasnponders, or how to fix the problem that would be helpful.Rob
