    for some reason my Raytheon tridata depth function stopped working. What should I look at first? Anyone have any experience? Thx

    Stopped working as in dead? If dead, power would be the first issues. If you cant get it to power up, I would send it out to raymarine to see if its repairable. If not, replace it.

    If its powered but no or wrong info, look at the trasducer and the connections all the way from the instrument to the transducer.

    Had the same issue a couple of years ago. Not much chance getting the old Raytheon piece fixed. I bought a new Raymarine tri-data that was a plug and play. Did have to cut the hole a little larger however.

    Assuming you have power -- Have you tried doing a hard power reset. Cut off the battery switches on the boat for 20-30 seconds then power back on. I used to have one that required a reboot occasionally to resync.

    I have a tri data if you’re interested. Make me an offer if you need it and I’ll ship it to you.

    Depth is out on mine too. I still get temp and speed. Raymarine help desk told me these start to fail incrementally with depth usually being the first to go. Depth still reads perfectly on my MFD’s which is same transducer. Some sort of failure in the tri-data display.
