My FF has stopped powering up.
While it could be the power supply, before I replace the connections I was hoping to test the unit. So is there anybody out there with the unit (it has one plug for the power and transducer cable). Apparently the Elite 4 is discontinued and none of the marine supply places here in Wellington have the power cables to plug into it.
Cheers.

Hi,

I'm sure someone here may be able to help you, but if not you could try the 'wellington kayak fishing community' page on facebook if you're in the facebook land. I have the 5 so has 2 separate cables unfortunately.

Hopefully you can get it sorted :y:

The elite and the hook are the same when looking for cables. I bought a hook4 because it was cheaper then buying power cable and transducer and iwanted to be able to use my elite gps/finder in the boat as well as the yak

Thanks all for the help.
I have tested my FF (twice) and it still does not power up. Bugger! Anyway I am now looking to get a replacement ( with the same plug).
