and the bottom of the display corresponds to the Depth Range automatically
selected for the current water depth. The Bottom Contour varies as the depth under
the boat changes. Digital readouts provide precise information for depth, fish and
water temperature.
As the boat moves, terrain and bottom composition variations are displayed. Fish,
baitfish and thermoclines (underwater temperature changes) are displayed when
detected. Underwater conditions vary greatly, so some experience and interpretation
is needed to realize all the benefits of the Fishin' Buddy® – use the picture as a guide
to the most common conditions and practice using your Fishin' Buddy® over known
bottom types.

Assembling and Attaching the Fishin' Buddy® Mounting Bracket
to the Boat
Use this procedure to assemble the Fishin' Buddy® mounting bracket, then attach it to
the boat in the desired mounting location, either by using the C-clamp on the mounting
bracket as a temporary mount, or by using the permanent mounting slots on the bottom
of the mounting bracket to screw or bolt it to the boat.
NOTE: C-clamp mounting is the most versatile and portable way to mount the Fishin´
Buddy® to your boat.
The Fishin' Buddy® should be mounted where it will be most visible and accessible. Use
the following information when considering a mounting location:
• The transducer will not work when it is not in the water.
• Turbulent water or water filled with air bubbles can cause interference or
prevent the transducer from operating.
1. Assemble the mounting bracket as shown below, using either one of the two

moves across the display, and consequently the amount of detail shown. A faster
speed shows more information and is preferred by most anglers; however, the sonar
information moves across the display quickly. A slower speed keeps the information
on the display longer, but the bottom and fish details become compressed and may

THIS WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTIES, OBLIGATIONS OR
LIABILITIES ON THE PART OF HUMMINBIRD® AND WILL BE THE CUSTOMER'S EXCLUSIVE
REMEDY, EXCEPT FOR ANY APPLICABLE IMPLIED WARRANTIES UNDER STATE LAW
WHICH ARE HEREBY LIMITED IN DURATION TO ONE YEAR FROM THE DATE OF ORIGINAL
PURCHASE. IN NO EVENT WILL HUMMINBIRD® BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR BREACH OF ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY

or consequential damages, so the above exclusions may not apply to you. You may also
have other rights, which vary from state to state.
Humminbird® Service Policy
Even though you'll probably never need to take advantage of our incredible service policy,
it's good to know that we back our products this confidently. We do it because you deserve
the best. We will make every effort to repair your unit within three business days from the
receipt of your unit at our factory. This does not include shipping time to and from our
factory. Units received on Friday are typically shipped by the following Wednesday, units
received Monday are typically shipped by Thursday, etc.
All repair work is performed by factory-trained technicians to meet exacting factory
specifications. Factory-serviced units go through the same rigorous testing and quality
control inspections as new production units.
After the original warranty period, a standard flat rate service charge will be assessed
for each repair (physical damage and missing parts are not included). Any repairs made
after the original warranty will be warranted for an additional 90 days after service has
been performed by our factory technicians. You can contact our Customer Resource
Center or visit our website to verify the flat rate repair fee for your product (visit the
Product Support section):
http://www.humminbird.com
We reserve the right to deem any product unserviceable when replacement parts are no
longer available or impossible to obtain. This Service Policy is valid in the United States
only. This applies only to Humminbird® products returned to our factory in Eufaula,
Alabama. This Service Policy is subject to change without notice.
