  1. Im sorry to say that you are thinking of AC alternating current, with DC direct current if you connect the unit the wrong way round it will blow it, unless they have fitted an idiot diode which only allows current to flow the correct way, if they have then it just doesn't work all you do then is swap them around.
  2. Yes, but a bit of an overkill, I bought a 2.8amp lipo battery and charger on ebay for £8.20 and if you look at the pictures above my battery is stuck to the back of the unit
  3. Sorry to say that information is incorrect, the higher the current on the battery means your device will last longer, the echo sounder display unit draws about 82 milliamperes which means a 12 volt 1 amp battery will last just over ten hours,no need for any added resistors.
  4. Yes mate, are you still waiting for the bracket for the sounder?
  5. This is my unit fitted my my Waverunner MK4 I put the extra switch on the transmitter unit so I can turn it off when not in use
  6. No the internal boat battery will be ok, the unit only draws a few milliamps
  7. I have just fitted one of these to my own boat but the Transducer is fitted in the hull, and I purchased a battery that fits to the back of the sounder
  8. Thinking of you all at this very sad time Mick, hope you can make it mate
  9. Morning Andy, just put £10 in your PayPal account for food, looking forward to meeting you all again
  10. Hi guys, If you have a problem or need any advice or repairs to your bait boats or associated equipment then run it by me I may be able to help, Cheers Pete.
  11. I had a similar experience, caused by water ingress into the receiver board, If you have had the boat a while you may need to open her up and check, they do suffer from condensation I had to replace my Tx/ Rx and upgraded to 2.4 ghz at a cost of about £65 the main problem with the Viper is you have to break the seal to get at it all, very time consuming.
  12. Exactly right Keith, we have been there done that and this time I think we need to show the place the respect it deserves and try and capture one of those pristine scaly beauts
  13. Yeah its just zig fishing but not in one spot, sounds like it could work, dont know about Horseshoe? although I'm sure the fish have seen most things but maybe not that, dont think I would have the balls to try it, may have a go on my local lake first.
  14. Great help guys, I'm edging toward the Triporter looks to be the the one that fits the bill for me.
