bb, It's been a month since this started. Getting down to basics is needed and start fresh. Like Reddog said unplug all "Y" cables and see what you have for a problem. If the left side has no return,put the other SI transducer on and if it also has no left side your unit is either bad or something is messed up in software or setup. Tell HB what you have found out and they can fix it. Bob

bb, I have a 219 with the same step as you have. My transducer is mounted exactly in the same place as the picture you posted...under the step and in the center. The reason I put it there is a friend who is on his 5th 219 reccommended I put it there as that is where his dealer has installed it on all 5 of his boats. It works great with no interference up to about 7mph. I also have a aluminum tiller with the transducer mounted 15" to the side of the motor as reccommended by HB and it works great also but up to 37mph....fastest I can go. I noticed it read at that speed this summer when I was pulling my grandkids on a tube and saw the locator was on SI. Pretty cool as I saw some cribs. Later I went back and putted around and marked 12 of them. That was 4th of July week. This past Saturday I went back to the cribs and caught 9 eyes including a 25"& 26". I have had property on the lake for 29 years and did not know the cribs were there until my "tubing expedidition". I have also marked some cribs on a flowage after seeing them at speed and turning back to investigate and mark...Pretty incredible stuff we have to help us fish these days....PS if you move the ducer below the step make sure you counter sink the holes as that gel likes to flake!!
