Hi all. My depth sounder screen is getting pretty hard to see. Getting sick of trying to guess what number it is. So can the sceen be fixed or am i up for a new one? If so whats a good reasonable cheapish one. Not to worried about speed log as it doesn't work anymore. Cheers

Get a cheapie fish finder and mount transducer in-hull. Works a treat if you have a solid hull.

Yara i thought about those, and i am a tight arse but not that tight rather get a halve decent built in one
Bananabender thanks for the link, i did look on ebay but never saw any. I think I'll go with that one. Thanks

That looks interesting, Banana, especially the compass/depth combo. The two essentials.

What sort of transducer do you need to make the compass work, and what would it cost ball park - anyone know ?

Actually my Garmin fishfinder is bulkhead mounted, and has been excellent. The transducer is mounted inside the hull, and was easy to install.

I know it might well be a waste of time, but on the other hand.....

Have to tried to contact the maker and ask about a replacement part?
Looks like the digital readout. If so it should be pretty well generic and a plug in module.
