New Striker 5cv Vivid question.
« on: Oct 16, 2021, 09:23 AM »
Just received my Striker 5cv ice bundle in the mail and noticed I do not get the ClearVu options on the home screen when I'm out of simulation mode.

Simulation mode for ClearVu only works when your transducer is connected which it is...the transducer remains connected when simulation mode is off but then the ClearVu sonar options disappear from the homescreen.

Is this something that needs to be in the water to be detected and will show on the home screen then?

I have the gt8 plugged in and I won't show when out of simulator mode.

Just leaving Cabela's now and their unit does the same thing as mine but they have no transducer installed..

So then will the Clearvu option appear on the menu homescreen when the ice ducer is in the water?

Ive only had my striker 5cv a few seasons but when using the gt8 ice ducer that comes with the ice pack i dont think its compatiable with the clear vu feature,thats a open water feature that needs the appropriate open water transducer.i can only use traditional sonar,ascope or flasher using the gt8.i dont like how i cant run traditional and flasher split screen but can use zoom and regular view split and ascope.like i said im not all that great with the features yet but know ive never been able to select clear vu with the gt8.

Ok thanks, I really thought I could use the clear view while ice fishing.
By the way, I you can run a split screen traditional and flasher.
On the home screen go to the bottom and choose customize and you can add a new "combo" . Then you can insert whatever sonar you want into each split screen.

I'm with you brother, always been mechanical flashers for me too but decided I wanted a new perspective this upcoming season and have something else to look at other than the dial during those long hours in the shack.
For hole hopping I'm still using my flashers for sure and I'll have a flasher in a secondary hole while using this new Garmin unit too.

I made a quick video on creating sonar combo split screens. I also demonstrated afterwards how to resize each frame to your liking.
