    Comments about Garmin Garmin FishFinder 160C Color Sonar:

    Easy to install. Color screen is very readable even in direct sunlight. Rotating mount is useful and the cover is a nice touch. I have had some problems with the transducer. The screen will lock on the last reading and it takes several minutes for the unit to catch up. This happens even when the outboard is not running. After talking with Garmin, I lowered the transducer and got some improvement but the problem still persists. Garmin offered to send a new transducer which I haven't ,as yet, requested. Overall,it's a nice unit for the price.
