well then stop reading them and go fishing instead of busting someone’s balls and wasting bandwidth for a non relevant remark.

The most definitive test for possible blockage is to remove the xducer from the transom and temporarily mount it to a pole and stick it down in the water way below the hull ...

I donít get what your saying

reddog Are you sure you have the correct Y cable to split the Left/Right image?

If I were in your position, Id start with resetting back to factory defaults.

A) eliminate the high speed from the network, (for now)

1) unplug all transducer and Y cables.
2) Plug your right side imaging transducer directly to the unit and test.
3) If left side is bad, then I would
4) Plug in left side transducer and test.
5) If still bad, I would update the software version
6) Retest in sequence.
7) If still bad, I would call Humminbird Customer service and explain problem and all the testing and updating you have done and prepare to ship it off.

bbheli wonder if ever you guys have some ideas here, I connected left right transducers I have a Y cable that comes out of the Helex 10 to split the high-speed transducer and the side imaging. Out of the side imaging I connect another y for dual transducers and added on the left side of the boat however I have the same problem.

bbheli After looking at several options; Trimming up, relocating the transducer lower center and adding a second transducer Iím leaning towards the left right transducer option and I have a couple of questions if anyone knows the answers. The first is how identical does placement of the left transducer have to be compared to the right side will it make any difference on the image, The second being is the resolution better using a left and right transducer.

The reason for this decision is people make a lot of good points about the transducer being too low for comfort and wash out from the engine and I donít like the idea of always having to remember to trim up and down.
