  • Page 3: Introduction

    INTRODUCTION The Ultra Classic is the latest member of the Eagle family that combines a high performance sonar with a wide screen. Using menu features and “soft-key” operation, the Ultra Classic is also one of the easiest to use sonars that Eagle has ever built. The wide “Ultravision” screen shows the underwater world with high resolution and detail.

  • Page 4: Power Connections

    This will protect both the unit and the power cable in the event of a short. Both the Ultra Classic and the Ultra Classic Plus use a 3-amp fuse.

  • Page 5: Transducer

    Ultra Classic.) BATTERY TRANSDUCER INSTALLATION The HS-WSBK supplied with your Ultra Classic is a transom mount transducer. It can be installed on any outboard or stern-drive (inboard\outboard) powered boat. It can also be permanently installed inside the boat to "shoot-through" the hull on some fiberglass boats.

  • Page 6: Speed/temperature Sensor

    If the base of the transom has a radius, fill the gap between the transom and the sensor with caulking compound. This will help ensure a smooth water flow. Route the sensor cable to the in-line connector on the Ultra Classic Plus’ power cable. The speed/temp sensor is now ready for use. GOOD LOCATION...

    Full Chart This is the default mode used when the Ultra Classic is first turned on. The bottom signal scrolls across the screen from right to left. Depth scales on the right side of the screen makes it easy to determine the depth of fish, struc- ture, and other objects.

    Window Groups You can change the displays on the Ultra Classic by using the windows feature. This lets you use different dis- plays for your own fishing or boating situations. This feature gives you 8 different display screens in the window groups alone.

    Grayline and some surface clutter. When the Ultra Classic is in the Auto- matic mode, the sensitivity is auto- matically adjusted to keep a solid bot- tom signal displayed, plus a little more.

    ZOUT (zoom-out) key until the desired zoom appears. NO ZOOM 2X ZOOM When the Ultra Classic is in the 2X or 4X zooms, "2X" or "4X" appears in the lower right corner of the screen, showing which mode the unit is currently in.

  • Page 14: Manual Operation

    GRAYLINE is adjustable. Since GRAYLINE shows the difference be- tween strong and weak signals, adjusting the sensitivity may require a different GRAYLINE level, also. The level chosen by the Ultra Classic at power on is usually adequate for most conditions. Experiment with your unit to find the GRAYLINE setting that’s best for you.

    or down arrow keys until the GRAYLINE menu appears. A screen similar to the one at right appears. Press the left arrow key to decrease the gray level or the right arrow key to increase it. The percentage of GRAYLINE in use changes as the arrow keys are pressed.

  • Page 16: Fish Id

    Remember, the Fish ID feature can’t be used when the Ultra Classic is in the manual mode. If you turn the Fish ID feature on when the Ultra Classic is in manual, the microcomputer will turn the automatic feature on. If you turn automatic off when the Fish ID feature is on, the Fish ID feature will be turned off also.

  • Page 17: Chart Setup

    When the Ultra Classic is turned on, FishTrack is enabled. To turn the FishTrack feature off, press the menu key, then press the up or down arrow keys until the FISH ID menu appears. Now press the left arrow key.

    It is simply converting each dot to a horizontal line. CHART CURSOR The Ultra Classic has a chart cursor that allows you to pinpoint a target’s depth. The cursor is simply a horizontal line that extends across the display from left to right.

  • Page 19: Display Zone Bar

    DIGITAL SONAR When the Ultra Classic is turned on, the digital depth display is located at the top left corner of the screen. This display comes from a separate digital sonar built into the unit. It displays only the bottom depth. If it loses the bottom, the last known depth will flash on the display.

  • Page 20: Alarms

    ALARMS The Ultra Classic has three different types of sonar alarms. The first is the Fish Alarm. It sounds when the Fish I.D. feature determines an echo or group of echoes is a fish. Another alarm is the Zone Alarm which consists of a bar.

    "1" at the end of the number to a "0". The depth now shows 10 feet. Press the ENT key to accept this setting. The Ultra Classic returns to the alarms menu, showing a shallow depth of 10 feet. Now you can activate the alarm by highlighting the "Shallow...

    45 feet. There are three levels of SCC avail- able on the Ultra Classic: low, medium, and high. When it’s turned on for the first time, the SCC level is low. To change it, press the MENU key, then press the up or down arrow keys until the "Surface Clarity"...

  • Page 23: System Setup

    The ASP feature has two levels - Normal and High. If you have high noise levels, try using the “High” ASP setting. However, if you are having trouble with noise, we suggest that you take steps to find the interference source and fix it, rather than continu- ally using the unit with the high ASP setting.

  • Page 24: System Information

    EXIT key. Reset Distance Log If you have a speed sensor attached to the Ultra Classic, the unit starts counting the distance you've travelled each time you turn it on. You can reset this distance to zero by turning the unit off and on again, however, it's easier to highlight the "Reset Distance Log"...

  • Page 25: Simulator

    Simulator The Ultra Classic has a simulator built in that lets you use it as if you are on the water. All features and functions of the unit are usable. A message appears occasionally to remind you that the simulator is on.

  • Page 26: Troubleshooting

    Rerouting the power and transducer cables away from other electrical wiring on the boat may help. Route the sonar unit’s power cable directly to the battery instead of through a fuse block or ignition switch 2.

  • Page 27

    1. The transducer may be in turbulent water. It must be mounted in a smooth flow of water in order for the sonar to work at all boat speeds. Air bubbles in the water disrupt the sonar signals, interfering with its ability to find the bottom or other targets.

  • Page 28

    With the boat at rest in the water, the first thing you should do is turn all electrical equipment on the boat off. Make certain the engine is off, also. Turn your Ultra Classic on, then turn off ASP (Advanced Signal Processing). There should be a steady bottom signal on the display.
