[CA11] Depth finder vs fishfinder
I have a transducer connected to an autohelm tridata. I’ve started to lose bottom in anything over 30 feet. The hull was recently scraped so I believe the transducer is going bad.

Question: are there any depth reading/navigational/anchoring benefits of a fishfinder vs just replacing the transducer. I don’t really need for fishing.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Tim,

Indeed there are features found within fishfinding products which are of value to those who do not fish. These include:
- bottom trending / plot ... provides at a glance situational awareness regarding whether depth is increasing or decreasing and how quickly
- bottom hardness ... of value to those who anchor
- structure location (reef, coral head, wrecks, etc.)
