bad mount?
Guessing that the transducer was mounted on the transom outside the boat, check to see if the mount bracket is not messed up. This may be allowing the transducer to move freely. I had the same issue with a different model, but the bracket was messed up and allowed the transducer to move move freely. When i would run, the water would passing under would push the transducer up at an angle giving readings of up to 600' at times. My messed up mount would not allow it to rest at the proper angle once I stopped so I would have to reach in the water and push it down to get an accurate reading.

Transducer problem
ok .. when i put the gps in it's mount and turn it on it will show 2500 feet and jump down and go back up.. the transducer is mounted tight and secured.. you think the transducer might be cracked and water got in it?
