Before mapping your favorite fishing holes with Insight Genesis, double-check that your transducer hasn’t been knocked crooked. A misaligned transducer can result inaccurate contour, aquatic vegetation, and bottom hardness outputs. And while the Insight Genesis Quality Control Team will prevent such bad data from being included in the maps you make, you will have to go out again and drive over those areas that you mapped while your transducer was crooked.
When mapping flat bottoms or slopes where the transducer beam is pointed away from the slope, a crooked transducer causes weak return signals (See the image below).
|To get the best data for making Insight Genesis maps, your Lowrance transducer should be aligned parallel with the ground (see the smaller inset image above).|
