Lowrance Active Target - HELP

Postby mccart125 » Mon Aug 30, 2021 12:59 pm

Looking for any help from a Lowrance rep or expert on this site.

Purchased a 9" FS as well as the active target back in Nov. Did not receive until April. The directional cone on the unit has never worked and I am only getting some visibility to about 10 ft, this is in forward mode. Scout mode about the same. I have been on the phone with Lowrance support 12-15 times. I have since replaced the black box as well as the transducer with the same results. Maybe the graph is the issue but due to the lack of detail and directional challenges, I think not.

I am on the latest code 20.3.

Is there someone local to CA, preferably the Bay Area that is an expert with Active Target? I have put so much effort into getting this to work I want to get this resolved.

Thanks in advance.
Mike

I haven’t gotten mine yet. I have one ordered so I can learn more about Live, but a friend just put one on his boat last week and you can see bass eating his worm dropshotting! Sounds like the transducer could be aimed wrong. Lowrance has been pretty helpful so far!

I found that after making sure my transducer was downloaded to the latest software upgrade there was another step which I learned after watching Marc Marcantonio's you tube video #2. In essence, it requires you to go into your settings to insure that your unit is reading the transducer correctly. My issue, like yours was resolved.

Also post a picture of your transducer mounted to your trolling motor. It would be very helpful.

Yea. I've done this several times. On the water and at home. I've seen Marc's video's several times to ensure all settings are correct.

Thanks
