If you turn it off, then turn it back on, does the temperature come back?

Or if you unseat/re-seat it?

I've always had issues with the 6 and 7 series Humminbirds with them losing GPS connection (on 6 series) or locking up totally (7 series) due to power dropping too low when I turn key to start motor.

The way I fish I'm doing very short drives usually, not enough to keep battery fully charged. When I'm dragging kids tubing I don't have the problem.

I had the same problem today all I had to do was remove it then put it back on pushing down to seat it . apparently I didn't have it on completely.

sounds like it could be either, like you say, and contacting Humminbird support might be your best option... they've been very responsive to me

also, this site is excellent, have had questions answered here in usually a day or two

well got the boat out re-checked all the wiring and still the same problem may have to call hummingbird again. just wondering do anyone else have had this problem with their unit?

sounds intermittent ... I would double check the connection in the block that screws into the back of the unit for starters
