    TRANSDUCER MOUNTING PROCEDURE Humminbird’s high-speed transducer is supplied with your LCR. This transducer has been designed to give good high speed readings on most all boat designs, including aluminum. Please carefully consider the following before installing your transducer. TRANSDUCER MOUNTING OPTIONS A.

  • Page 4: Installation

    B. Inside Hull Mount- The high speed transducer can be mounted inside the hull (without pivot assembly) using the proper two-part epoxy, such as Humminbird’s epoxy kit. Even though there is some loss of signal in shooting through the hull, your LCR will perform well with this type of installation.

    aluminum boat locate the template on the transom between rows of rivets, or ribs that are on the bottom of the boat. Align the template so that the bottom corner of the template nearest the center of the transom is on the bottom edge of the transom. Once the location is determined mark and drill three 7/64”...

    NOTE: On boats with more than 15 degree deadrise angle it may be necessary to mount the transducer slightly off parallel with the water level. (See Figure E) Mark and drill the three 9/64” dia. holes as shown on the template. Attach the metal bracket using the three #10 self threading screws supplied.

    Step 4 TRANSDUCER ASSEMBLY- Insert the transducer assembly into the metal bracket from the bottom. Push up until the holes in the plastic pivot align with the uppermost holes in the bracket. Slide the O-ring on to the headed pin and insert it through the two parts.

    For this reason, Techsonic Industries, Inc. will not be responsible for any damage due to the mounting of your transducer in this manner. NOTE: An Epoxy Kit (Part N. EPK) is available from Humminbird. This Epoxy Kit has been formulated for Inside Hull Transducer Installation.

    7. Remove the water and transducer and clean the marked area and the bottom of the transducer thoroughly. 8. Using the Humminbird Epoxy Kit or equivalent, mix an ample amount of epoxy without causing it to bubble and pour it in the area the transducer is to be mounted.

    Position the swivel base and drill four ¼” diameter holes. Note: The LCR hole pattern Is the same as for all Humminbird flasher units. Use hardware provided to mount this base to the boat. Next place the gimbal bracket on the swivel base and attach with four small machine screws, provided.

    INSTALLING THE CABLES Your LCR comes equipped with Humminbird’s new Angle-Lock power and transducer connectors. The power connector is identified with the letter P on the back of the plug.

    “Transducer”. Note: An adapter (AD-4) is available to allow use of an old waterproof (BNC) transducer with the LCR, but be sure that the transducer is a 16degree. A 32- degree transducer cannot be used. A 11/8” hole must be drilled to pull through the transducer connector. After drilling the hole, pull the transducer connector up through the hole.

  • Page 13: Test The Installation

    Note: it is often necessary to make several incremental transducer adjustments before optimum high-speed performance is achieved. Important: For Transom Mount transducer installations, install the third mounting screw after the final transducer adjustments. Humminbird 3 Humminbird Lane Eufaula, Alabama 36027...

  • Page 15: Using The Tcr Id-1, How Sonar Works

    HOW SONAR WORKS HOW SONAR WORKS Humminbird depth sounders work on the basic principles of sonar. An electronic signal generated in the unit is changed to an ultrasonic signal by the transducer or Sensor, which sends the signal toward the bottom. The signal travels downward until it strikes either the bottom or an object above the bottom.

  • Page 16

    Our new Sensor is so compact, it’s a snap to install. It’s designed for superior high- speed performance, and because of its small size you'll have less problem with drag, turbulence, or rooster-tails. This new Sensor is actually less likely to be damaged by debris, yet performs with all the accuracy you expect from Humminbird.

    USING THE TCR ID-1 BUILT-IN SIMULATOR BUILT-IN SIMULATOR To help you learn to use your new unit, Humminbird has built a simulator into the TCR ID-1.The simulator will display a typical underwater scene, and allow you to use the controls for practice.

  • Page 18: Reading The Tcr Id -1 Screen

    This is especially helpful if you're bottom-fishing 2. Stronger signals are displayed as a black dot behind a red dot. The TCR ID-1's microcomputer also helps you identify stronger signals, such as those from larger fish, because they are displayed as a black dot behind a red dot.

    2. Using zoom and bottom-lock. Through Pixel Memory Capacity, the memory in the TCR ID-1 stores readings in much finer detail than is displayed in the “regular” mode. So when you activate the zoom or bottom-lock functions, the entire screen changes to display the up-close detail that is stored in memory.

    Your new TCR ID-1 offers unique automatic features, as well as many adjustable ones. If you're learning to operate the TCR ID-1 with its simulator, follow the directions listed at “Built-In Simulator” on page 16, and then come back to this page. If you’re learning to use your TCR ID-1 using actual on-the-water readings, proceed with the following instructions.

    MAINTENANCE AND WARRANTY MAINTENANCE Your Humminbird fishfinder is designed to provide years of trouble free operation with virtually no maintenance. Follow these simple procedures to ensure your Humminbird continues to deliver top performance. If the unit comes into contact with salt spray simply wipe the affected surfaces with a cloth dampened in fresh water.

  • Page 27: Troubleshooting

    Repairs should be performed only by authorized Humminbird technicians. Many requests for repair received by Humminbird involve units that do not actually reed repair. These units are returned “no problem found.” If you have a problem with your Humminbird, use the following troubleshooting guide before calling Customer Support or sending your unit in for repair.

    4. When in very shallow water, I get gaps in the bottom reading and inconsistent digital depth indication. Your Humminbird fishfinder will work reliably in water 2’ (.6m) or deeper. The depth is measured from the transducer, not necessarily from the surface.

    7. My unit loses power at high speeds. Most Humminbird fishfinders have over-voltage protection that turns the unit off when input voltage exceeds 20 VDC. Some outboard motors do not effectively regulate the power output of the engine's alternator and can produce voltage in excess of 20 volts when running at high RPMs.
