SD, I'm thinking of getting a GPS-Sounder combo, would you say it's better to install a new transducer specific for the GPS? and get rid of the old one?
Since I'm not sure I will go with the GPS, just a stand alone depth sounder made sense to me initially, but by what you said I think it's better to use transducers specific to system/brand.
Thanks
