The only thing I notice different is when the trolling motor is out of the water (retracted) I used to hear a constant ticking noise and could actually feel this lightly thumping on the built in transducer. Now I only hear the ticking periodically.
Not sure if this issue is the HDS5 unit itself of if I may need a new transducer , or another issue.
that cable cant be removed from the transducer like it can from the unit itself. Most likely it's the cable which means you need a new transducer. Could also try spraying on some CRC Contact cleaner to the female end of the unit and the male plug. 'They' say you dont need to power down to use it, but i would anyway. We use it a lot in aviation avionics equipment and it will work if it's only your connectors that are fouled.ppFishing wrote:Do you have another cable that you can use to connect the HDS-5 to the xducer?
