obelisk is on a distinguished road
Just found this thread in the archives and it almost explains my question. I have a RAYTHEON ST60 which is the same as the Raymarine models but older...I think. It has 2 NMEA (no mention of 0183 or 2000) ports and 2 SeaTalk ports. Here's my question: I just upgraded to a garmin 4008 Chartplotter, 18" Radome and GSD22 sounder. I am going to install a new transducer but I am wondering if I can eliminate my old Raymarine through-hull speed and depth transducers--will the old ST60 be able to read the new transducer's info and send it, via SeaTalk cables, to my instruments in the cockpit (which do not have NMEA ports)?

If this is possible, it would save loads of time and frustration!
