Prevent Fish Finder OVER HEAT!


Recommended Posts

July 4 and 5, my FF got so hot you couldn't touch it. Expensive unit, and apparently Lowrance has no repair capabilities, so this alarmed me. So I built a shade for it and put reflective material on the boat window. See picture. This worked great. Unit is running much cooler.IMG_20180704_085846463.jpg

The Carbons do get hot, I checked mine with an infrared digital temperature reader and it was 120 degrees on the touchscreen. I called lowrance and they are aware of the problem but you are right they had no solution. He said they were good up to 140 degrees! Holy crap really! But yes, I also try to shield mine from the sun.
