Default Garmin GCV-10 Sonar Alarm

Brand new unit paired with the 8212 MFD, problem is that I don't have a fish alarm. The option should be in Settins>Alarms>Sonar>Fish Alarm. Problem is, I don't have the fish alarm option in the settings section. Is there some other option that I'm missing?

Not in front of a unit to check right now, but have you searched in the actual main Sonar menu? Without first verifying, I would have told you that this was where the fish alarm setting was.

You probably have to enable fish symbols to get the alarm to work.

After days Garmin finally answered my question.
"Fish alarms will not be available with DownVu and SideVu only. Fish Alarms will only be an option with traditional sonar."

I will NOT buy another Garmin after this. To resolve my problem I have to spend Another $800 for a different Sonar module and transducer.
