A terrova without a cord? Got a pic?My I-pilot on a Power Drive did the same thing very now and then. I have never seen my friend's i-pilot do that on his Terrova though. His unit does not have a cord; it has the US2. It seems to me the I-pilot and Power is an inferior combo anyway. I agree with Oyey. I think the unit is confused as to which way the cord is tangled. Probably not a glitch; just a limitation on what the unit can possibly know about which way the cord is tangled. It's probably a fail safe to ensure that the unit does not tear up the transducer cord.
How do you know that from the posts? You are just assuming, but maybe they are. I never had problems with that cord. It's less prone to get caught because I haven't experienced it and have not seen it on my friend's boat.Everyones talking about the thick cord - carries power to the head.
Whoa man, no disrespect intended!How do you know that from the posts? You are just assuming, but maybe they are. I never had problems with that cord. It's less prone to get caught because I haven't experienced it and have not seen it on my friend's boat.
No disrespect taken... "Getting caught" vs "Getting wrapped": I understand what people are talking about, and I am talking about the same thing. The cord? No one specified. One cord (power) is coiled, which gives it more room to maneuver; the other cord (transducer) is a straight wire. It gets wrapped, caught, whatever you want to call it much easier than the other one when the unit is turning to maintain spot lock. I was just speaking from my experience with my set up. If it isn't what people are talking about then, I'll move on.Whoa man, no disrespect intended!
Its a common compliant, and I know a few of the guys talking about it have terrovas. People arent talking about it getting caught, they are talking about it wrapping too many times and not auto unwrapping like its supposed, or as Oyey said, maybe a programming/firmware glitch. Seems its supposed to be 1.5 times around, then its supposed go the opposite way to unwind the cord.
One iof the many threads and I think the manual talks about how its supposed to work.
