after reading the post a few times, i am thinking operator error. i see you went from 15 to 5 feet of water. you had the unit set at 7. any flasher set at 7 in 5 feet of water will be putting out way to much power and the return you are seeing at 15 is just rebound. i would take the unit back out to water that you know is deeper that 10 feet and see if it works like it should set at the lowest power and turn it up until it is adjusted correctly and you have a bottom reading and can see your bait. if that don't work, then i would try a buddy's transducer and see if that works. most transducers just don't go bad enroute to another spot, unless you run it over with the atv.....................tom fellegy

yes the 522 does have the voltage overlay, just like all other lowrance units. it should be the last option on that page. you can buy a new battery if you want to, but that won't fix your problem. it might for a month or two, then the same thing will start to happen all over again. the fix is, hardwire the unit directly to the starting battery with its own on/off switch and a fuse.............tom fellegy

voltage drop issue. go into menu then to overlay and there is a volt overlay. watch it while starting, it will drop and your unit will shut down when it drops below i think 9 volts. then run wires directly to the starting battery with a fuse and see if it does the same thing, i am willing to bet that it will not and stay online while starting. you do have to put a on/off switch because the gps antenna will draw power all the time..................tom fellegy

hardwire the unit driectly to the starting battery with a fuse and a on/off switch so the anntena will shut off. do not use the fusebox, if you have the unit wired through the boats fusebox that is where you are getting the voltage drop when starting and your unit will shut down.............tom fellegy

just because hooks are new, does not mean that they are sharp. a few quick passes with a file and you KNOW that the hooks are sharp.
