Using Humminbird 788ci HD Combo for ice fishing

Post by Denny O » Tue Feb 05, 2013 2:39 pm

Hi, I'm asking for a friend. I'm no help to him as I use a regular flasher.

Quote "Is anyone familiar enough with this unit to help with setting it up for ice fishing. I bought the transducer and have it all set up but I can't get it to read anything in flasher mode. The flasher screen looks like it does before you put the transducer in the water but doesn't change when the transducer is in the water. It's like the transducer is not plugged in but I've checked that. Called humminbird and they just tell me to make sure it's in normal mode which I have done. Stumped on this one so far. Anyone have any thoughts? "

Thanks for the help,
Denny O

Doesn't that model have an Ice Fishing Mode setting in the Sonar menu tab for the Circular Flasher View?

Is your friend using a 788ci HD model unit or is this the 788ci HD DI model unit?

What model transducer is your friend using?

If he is using a 788ci HD model unit and the XI-9-20 transducer then it should all work when he plugs it up and turns it on.

Yes it does Wayne but the Circular Flasher Mode should be showing a bottom depth reading. The Ice Flasher mode is just a set of features and a presentation that the ice fishermen prefer to use.

How did he set it up? I used a Vexilar mount and case. Mine was plug and play, no problems. Maybe he has a faulty unit.
