    Default Depth finder 09 lsv

    Quick question. How does the depth finder determine the depth because it said 2.5 ft and I know I'm in at least 4-5 foot of water, is that from the bottom of the boat or how does it come to that?

    It should read the depth from the transducer mount location. Most units have a calibration feature if the reading is not what you want.

    Its prolly reading from the bottom of the Prop.

    I know i adjust mine to read from the bottom of my prop because the prop will hit the ground before my boat LOL.

    Generally it reads that when you are in water more then 200ft. It will do that sometimes when you have a lot of turbulance under the boat.

    If it reads that all the time it isnt working correctly.
