Transducers (for depth sounders)

Hi All. I'm wanting to install a depth sounder on my 28ft sloop. There is currently a very nice bronze through hull transducer installed in it but there the boat came with no face unit. It would be ideal if I could buy a face unit that is compatible with the transducer that is already installed. This would lead to a minimal amount of work dealing with the fairing blocks, etc. So what I'd like to determine is:

a) a method to test the current through hull transducer to see if it works. Anybody know how to do this?

b) what face units are compatible with the transudcer if it does work? Or, what characteristics of transducers lead to their compatibilty with face units?

Thanks.
