hole.
TherefOre,
after
drilling
the
hole,
pass
the
transducer
connector up
through
the hole from under the dash. Then drop the
power cable down from the front side
of
the
dash. Slide
the
bracket
over the hole, then route
the
transducer
and
power cables
out the
slots
in
the bracket. Finally, fasten
the
bracket
to the
dash.
POWER CONNECTIONS
The X-25 works from
a
12 volt
DC
system only. For
the
best
results,
run
the
power cable directly
to
the
boat's battery.
Keep
the
power
cable away from other boat
wiring, especially
the
engine's wires. This
will give the best
isolation
from
electrical noise.
If
the
supplied
cable
is
not long enough
to
reach
the
battery; splice
#18 gauge
insulated
wire
to
it.
You can attach
the
power
cable
to
an
accessory
or
power
buss,
however,
you may
have problems with electrical interference.
See
page
25 for more
information
on
electrical
noise.
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.

1.
Electrical noise
from
the
boat's
motor,
trolling
motor,
or
an
accessory
may
be
interfering
with
the
sonar unit.
Re-routing
the
power and

from other
electrical
wiring on the boat may
help. Route the
sonar unit's power
cable directly
to
the battery
instead
of through
a

2.
Inspect
the transducer cable
for
breaks, cuts,
or
pinched wires.

fish
signals:
1.
Make
certain
transducer is pointing straight
down.
Clean
the
face of the
transducer.
Oil, dirt, and fuel
can
cause afilmto form on
the transducer, reducing
its
effectiveness.
If
the transducer
is
mounted inside
the
hull,
be sure
it
is
shooting through
only one layer
of
fiberglass
and that it
is
securely
