Lowrance lcx17m problem

I have a 2006 black/ white unit it sometimes goes nuts on depth readings goes into depth range up to 500 ft in auto depth mode. It sometimes goes back to reading bottom but most times I must go into Manuel mode set depth to were I am at but then screen is out of sync. It happens in shallow water 10- 20 or deep lake mich. Fishing 60- 200. Tried to clean terminals set up unit on own battery. Cleaned transducer. Also did a update from lowrance, doesn't happen all the time just inconsistently. My friends unit started same thing last summer. Unit still works well when it is running correctly lowrance help line told me to buy new one but the gps works great and I'm not independently wealthy. Oh and I did hear it could be the transducer I guess lowrance sold these unit with some bad ones but this unit ran good for 7 years. Help..

I have the same unit with the same issues. I get it while trolling. Not a dirty water issue for me either. It's annoying as hell. It's a transducer issue that I'm thinking will be solved with a new one. Had the same issue 2 yrs ago got a brand new ducer and it went away till 2 trips ago. For me, if I can't get it solved soon, I'm just updating with an elite 7.

More than likely your transducer is picking up the wake.try raising your transducer

Yes did try to change location , also tried different transducer because lowrance said it might be a bad one nothing changed. It only happens intermittent , sometimes deep water some times shallow.
