Page 4 Fish Symbols vs. Full Sonar Chart Page 6 Routes Page 8 Find Streets or Intersections When showing navigation data to a position waypoint , a GPS unit will show the shortest, most direct path to the waypoint. Page 9: Sec. This first section is an intro- duction to Eagle sonar and GPS. It tells you the basics you need to know before you can make the unit look around and tell you where you are, or look below the surface to find some fish.

Page 10 After you've gained some experience with your sonar, you'll want to check out Section 4, which discusses more advanced Sonar Options and Other Features.

When you come to a sonar menu command on the screen, you can look it up in the manual by skimming over the table of contents, just flipping through Section 3 or scanning through the sonar options in Section 4.

Page How Eagle Sonar Works Sonar has been around since the s, so if you already know how it works, skip down to read about the relatively new technology of GPS.

But, if you've never owned a sonar fish finder, this segment will tell you the under water basics. The viewer is available for download from the Eagle web site, www. You can save several different sonar log files, erase 'em and record new ones, over and over again. Page 15 MapCre- ate software.

These MapCreate custom maps contain much greater de- tail than the basic background map. These custom maps are pre-loaded on MMCs. No computer work required! Page 17 A minimum of three satellites are required to determine a 2D fix.

The system requires signal reception from three satellites in order to determine a position. This is called a 2D fix. It takes four satellites to determine both position and elevation your height above sea level — also called altitude.

Page 19 Menu Commands A menu command or a menu option will appear in small capital letters, in a bold sans serif type like this: you are to select this command or option from a menu or take an action of some kind with the menu item. Text that you may need to enter or file names you need to select are show in italic type, such as trail name. Page 20 Notes Page Sec. Page Recommended Tools And Supplies Read these instructions carefully before attempting the installation.

Determine which of the mounting positions is right for your boat. Re- member, the transducer installation is the most critical part of a sonar installation. Recommended Tools and supplies If you prefer the option of routing the cable through the transom, you will need either a 1" Page 23 NOTE: Some aluminum boats with strakes or ribs on the outside of the hull create large amounts of turbulence at high speed.

These boats typically have large outboard motors capable of propelling the boat at speeds faster than 35 mph. Typically, a good transom location on aluminum boats is between the ribs closest to the engine.

For most situations, you should install your Skimmer transducer so that its centerline is level with the bottom of the boat hull. This will usually give you the best combination of smooth water flow and protec- tion from bangs and bumps. First, some loss of sensitivity does occur, even on the best hulls. This varies from hull to hull, even from different installations on the same hull. This is caused by differences in hull lay-up and construction.

Second, the transducer angle cannot be adjusted for the best fish arches on your sonar display. Page 26 B. Two-piece bracket: Locate the four plastic ratchets in the trans- ducer's hardware package. Press two ratchets into the sides of the plas- tic bracket and two on either side of the transducer as shown in the fol- lowing illustrations. Notice there are letters molded into each ratchet. Place the ratchets into the bracket with the letter "A" Page 27 hold it against the transom.

Looking at the transducer from the side, check to see if it will adjust so that its face is parallel to the ground. If it does, then the "A" position is correct for your hull. If the transducer's face isn't parallel with the ground, remove the transducer and ratchets from the bracket.

Page 28 Bolt Flat washer Assemble transducer and bracket. Assembling the transducer. One-piece bracket: Once you determine the correct position for the ratchets, assemble the transducer as shown in the following fig- ure. Don't tighten the lock nut at this time. Assemble transducer and bracket.

One-piece bracket: Remove the transducer from the bracket and re-assemble it with the cable passing through the bracket over the bolt as shown in the following figures. Page 30 Flat-bottom hull Align transducer centerline with hull bottom and attach transducer to transom. Rear view of dual-frequency Skimmer shown.

Route the transducer cable through or over the transom to the sonar unit. Make sure to leave some slack in the cable at the transducer. If possible, route the transducer cable away from other wiring on the boat. Page Trolling Motor Bracket Installation Single-Frequency Only hole with the same marine grade above- or below-waterline seal- ant used for the mounting screws. Make a test run to determine the results.

If the bottom is lost at high speed, or if noise appears on the display, try sliding the trans- ducer bracket down. Transducer aimed too far back Full fish arch Page Testing Determines Best Location such as plywood, balsa wood or foam between layers of fiberglass if the material is removed from the chosen area.

See the figure below. Careless grinding or cutting on your hull can result in damage that could sink your boat. Page 34 To choose the proper location for shoot-thru-hull mounting, follow these testing procedures: You may need a helper to complete these steps. Anchor the boat in about 30 feet of water. Add a little water to the sump of the boat. Plug the transducer into the sonar unit, turn it on, then hold the transducer over the side of the boat in the water.

Page Shoot-Thru-Hull Installation 4. Most people can get good results by following steps 1 through 3, so this step is optional. If you want to make an extra effort to be absolutely sure that your selected location will work under all conditions, make a test run with the boat on plane and observe the bottom signal. However, the FishElite can only use one accessory at a time, so if you would like to use a speed sensor and a second temperature sensor at the same time, you will need a combination device.

Primary temp sensor is built into the transducer. The primary temperature sensor is built into the transducer. Temperature sensor built into transducer If you wish to purchase an optional additional sensor for your unit, refer to the accessory ordering information inside the back cover of this manual. Some equipment depends on your sen- sor model.
