Re: Chartplotter and transducers

I think it would help a lot if you could see if there are any part numbers on your transducers. Also, what kind of display were they being used with? Are those displays still working?

If you have working displays and transducers, I'd be tempted to leave them as they are, and just install a chartplotter.

The answer is you can make almost anything work with anything, but at what point does it become easier to replace the transducers than to battle with compatibility.

Also I find it better to have a separate display for the depth and speed, than to clutter up the chartplotter display.
