Default Does your Raymarine Axiom sounder output look similar?

Just had an Axiom with a kit CHIRP transducer installed. Didn't get a chance to take the boat out so the screenshots are from being stationary in a slip, but the output looks strange to me...as if it was stretched. Everything is on auto. Adjusting settings/sensitivity reduced some clutter, but didn't change the screen much. Oddly, the lighter blue lines close to the bottom are being identified as fish.... but they don't look like it to me?

Anyone with Raymarine Axiom can show what your sonar (just regular not down vision or 3D) look like?

What do you expect to see at your slip?Looks pretty normal to me.I would adjust the gain and intensity up a little to get a slightly darker bottom return.Capt.Mike

Check your ping rate/chart speed. , too. It may be set too fast, that will always "elongate" a picture, moving or stopped. You'll find it in Settings (three gear cogs) , on the drop down menu (three bars) on the top rhs of the screen. I'd go down and look at mine, but the mosquitos are murder here ATM.

Best pic I have is of shrimp i got into last month. All settings were auto. Notice it starts like yours then builds as i get closer to the shrimp.

Default Depth

Not sure why yours doesn’t show depth.

Ok, I'll take a look at try to adjust the settings up. It did seem to scroll quite fast and I believe the ping rate was set at 80, maybe that was too much?

The depth is not shown because one can add or remove information to their screen. It wasn't there by default, but I did add depth, SOG, water temp to my screen.

I think it's working. Bottom looks much better and got a nice arch for something that definitely looks like a fish to me Merry Christmas everyone!
