The dash display unit has developed black lines to the point where I can't read the info. Is this fixable or do I need to replace the unit? If so where can i

find one and can I handle the job or should I get a marina to do it. Thank you for your thoughts!

Are you talking about the unit shown below?IMG_7143_zpsbf09c3fb.jpgIf so then you may be out of luck fixing it. Mine did the same thing where most of the lines were illegible. I ended up replacing it with an analog gauge from Bakes but in doing so I lost my depth/temp readings. I called the vendor (in Michigan as I recall) and they couldn't offer me anything as far as LCD replacement goes. Not sure if you have speed control on your boat and will lose this functionality also with this. I had a Stargazer unit separate from this so I lucked out. The ONLY thing you may be able to do is see if you have a local computer and/or electronics repair shop take a look at it. They may be able to replace the LCD or see if there's a short in the board somewhere causing this. Good luck.

CAP305,

how to you read the temp/depth in that module? I just picked my boat up and it has that LCD screen setup but can't figure out how to access that function. I am pretty sure I have the depth/temp function as i saw the black through hull housing/fitting down in the engine compartment along with the air sensor under the dash.

Thanks,

I think there was a page thru menu on that where you could get to the depth/temp if you had a transducer installed. My LCD was basically garbage when I bought it so I didn't play around with it too much but I seem to recall being able to page/arrow to the depth when I did the water test.

I have the manual at home. I'll try to get to it tonight and scan the page regarding this.
