INTRODUCTION Thank you for purchasing an Eagle sonar. Your sonar unit is a high quality sonar designed for both professional and novice fishermen. All of our sonars have an automatic feature that finds and displays the bottom, fish, structure, and more! All you have to do is press the on key. However, if you wish to fine tune the unit, all you have to do is press the menu key.
Transducer Installation The transducer included with your sonar is a transom mount transducer The “kick-up” mounting bracket helps prevent damage if the transducer strikes an object while the boat is moving. If the transducer does “kick- up”, the bracket can easily be pushed back in place without tools. Read this manual carefully before attempting the installation.
Shoot-thru-hull v.s. Transom Mounting (FishEasy and FishEasy ST Only) Typically, shoot-thru-hull installations give excellent high speed opera- tion and good to excellent depth capability. There is no possibility of damage from floating objects. It can't be knocked off when docking or loading on the trailer.
2. Slide the transducer between the two ratchets. Temporally slide the bolt though the transducer assembly and 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.
CAUTION! CLAMP THE TRANSDUCER CABLE TO TRANSOM NEAR THE TRANSDUCER. THIS WILL HELP PREVENT THE TRANSDUCER FROM ENTERING THE BOAT IF IT IS KNOCKED OFF AT HIGH SPEED. GOOD LOCATION POOR LOCATION POOR ANGLE GOOD LOCATION 4. Hold the transducer and bracket assembly against the transom. The transducer should be roughly parallel to the ground.
Bottom of Hull 5. Remove the transducer from the bracket and re-assemble it with the cable passing through the bracket over the bolt as shown above. At- tach the transducer to the transom. Slide the transducer up or down until it’s aligned properly on the transom as shown above. Tighten the bracket’s mounting screws.
TROLLING MOTOR BRACKET INSTALLATION (TriFinder Only) 1. Attach the TMB-S bracket to the transducer as shown below using the hardware supplied with the transducer. (Note: The internal tooth washer is supplied with the TMB-S.) INTERNAL TOOTH WASHER BOLT 2. Slide the adjustable strap supplied with the TMB-S through the slot in the transducer bracket and wrap it around the trolling motor.
SHOOT-THRU-HULL (FishEasy and FishEasy ST Only) The transducer installation inside a fiberglass hull must be in an area that does not have air bubbles in the resin or separated fiberglass layers. The sonar signal must pass through solid fiberglass. A success-...
(HIGH SPEED) (TROLLING SPEED) Shoot-thru-hull Installation (FishEasy and FishEasy ST Only) 1. Make certain the area is clean, dry, and free of oil or grease, then sand both the inside surface of the hull and the face of the transducer with 100 grit sandpaper.
hull. Place the transducer into the epoxy, twisting and turning it to force any air bubbles out from under the transducer face. The face of the transducer should be parallel with the hull, with a minimum amount of epoxy between the hull and transducer. After the epoxy dries, route the cable to the sonar unit.
This unit has reverse polarity protection. No damage will occur if the power wires are reversed. However, the unit will not work until the wires are attached correctly. TO SONAR UNIT TO SPEED/TEMP SENSOR (FISHEASY ST & TRIFINDER ONLY) WARNING! BLACK WIRE 12 VOLT...
Bracket Installation - Permanent mount units only You can install the sonar unit on the top of a dash or from an overhead with the supplied bracket. It can also be installed in the dash with an optional IDA-3 mounting kit. If you use the supplied bracket, you may be interested in the optional GBSA-1 swivel bracket kit.
FISHEASY PORTABLE ASSEMBLY INSTALLING THE BATTERIES Release the latch on the front of the battery case. Open the compartment and install four "D" cell batteries into the adapter. For the longest life, we recommend you use alkaline batteries. This battery case will also hold one rechargable battery instead of the "D"...
receive about portable units result from stale batteries. Make certain the ones you buy are fresh. Always remove batteries from the battery compartment before storing the unit as dead batteries can leak and corrode the contacts. In cold weather the efficiency of dry cell batteries drops with the tempera- ture.
HULL SPEED/TEMPERATURE SENSORS The FishEasy ST and TriFinder can use up to three temperature sensors which can monitor surface water, live well, air, and virtually any other temperature. You do need to be careful when purchasing the temperature sensors, however.
ST-TBK = 1 speed sensor and 1 temperature display ST-T BK + TS-2BK = 2 temp sensors and one speed sensor ST-TBK + TS-2BK + TS-3BK = 3 temp sensors and one speed sensor TS-1BK = 1 temperature sensor TS-12BK = 2 temperature sensors...

KEYBOARD BASICS The unit sounds a tone when you press any key. This tells you the unit has ac- cepted a command. PWR/CLEAR Use this key to turn the unit on. It also clears menu selections and the menus from the screen. This key also turns the unit off.
OPERATION MENUS This unit uses menus to guide you through the unit’s functions and features. The menu key accesses these features, allowing you to cus- tomize the unit to your particular needs and water conditions. All you have to do to leave one menu and enter another is press the menu key repeatedly.
After you select the desired range, press the PWR key to clear the display. If you wait a few seconds, it will automatically clear. This unit has the following ranges: 10, 20, 40, 60, 120, 240, 480, and 900 feet. 5, 10, 20, 40, 60, 100, 200, and 300 meters.
This means the unit is tracking the bottom in a zoom window, always keeping it on the display. Press the up arrow key to decrease the zoom size, press the down arrow key to increase the zoom size. When the unit is switched into the zoom mode, the letters “ZM”...
SENSITIVITY The sensitivity menu lets you control the unit’s ability to pick up echoes. A low sensitivity level excludes much of the bottom information, fish signals, and other detail. High sensitivity settings lets you see features, but it can also clutter the screen with noise and other unwanted signals. Typically, the best sensitivity level shows a good, solid bottom signal with grayline.
® Grayline is adjustable. Since it shows the difference between strong and weak echoes, changing the level may require a different sensitivity setting. To change the Grayline level, first press the MENU key until the Grayline menu appears. Now press the up arrow key to increase the level, the down arrow to decrease it.
The Fish ID feature can’t be used when the unit is in the manual mode. If you turn the automatic feature off, the Fish ID feature will automatically be turned off, also.
