Usually not a good idea to cut sounder transducer wire unless it's outputting NMEA (simple serial line). Check with Garmin if it's ok to cut transducer line. If not, in a previous boat I was able to run a RADAR wire up the pedestal using the pedestal hole at bottom. The connector was rectangular so I was able to cut off the boot and bring the connector out at an angle. Get a dremel to grind the sharp edges. Just wrap the wire good at the exit point.
