2500 Garmin transducer

Recommended Posts

I was out last weekend on a friends boat. It was a large 32' step hull with twin outboards. Their sounder with a thru-hull transducer read flawlessly at speed in depths to 190'. I notice some air interference in my Garmin with the standard thru hull transducer and it becomes difficult if not impossible to read when at cruising speed. (Not sure which one comes with the boat but would like to know if someone can chime in). My question is do other 2500 owners lose good bottom contact with their sounder at speed or is there something I can do with what I have to improve its performance? Being able to read the bottom at speed is a game changer when looking for new stuff. Thanks for the replies.

my 2500 thru hull loses contact above 52mph but my structure scan reads depth all the way to 64mph 

has to do with hull being out of the water at high speed with tabs up and max trim angles on the motor
