I've got my boat all rigged up and ready to go. But I'm having a problem with my water temp guage and hoping someone can help. I'm sure I'm just overlooking something simple.

The connector is proper seated into the back of my GPS, the guage at the back looks fine, and the cable (where I can see it) looks fine also, but no signal on the GPS. Anyone have any thoughts before I rip it out and put in a new one?

Same thing I told him. Screen Setup I think it is, but it didnt help. He has the temp shown but it is lines instead of numbers. I think his sending unit is bad.

I would try turning off the digital depth number and leave the temperature on. That will effectively move the temp reading to the top of the screen and you will be able to see if the problem is in that part of the display.

Thanks for all the help guys. Looks like I need to replace it. Or I can just stick my hand in the water at Sandusky and say...."yep that's freaking cold!". Or I could just stuff a wave, duck, and let Dave tell me the water temp...

If the water is as cold in Sandusky as I'm guessing, you stuff a wave and soak Dave, his sending unit might go bad too...

What you talking about "Dinasour". It's a great sytem. Had the same problem and I bet it's in the set up.
RTFB
. Having said that, it solved the same problem for me. I got a video on that system and would be more than glad to share it. It speaks to that problem.
