Maine - what I hear you saying is I can put a TickTack transducer on the mast, plug the T122 interface to the ActiSense NGW1, hook that to the RayMarine NG network which is interfaced via my e7d.
The benefit here of course is no wires up and down the mast.
Of course the drawback is these units are HORRIBLY UNRELIABLE. You could not pay me to install FREE TackTick stuff on my own boat, let alone actually pay for it..

If you want more detail on why they are not a good choice feel free to PM me...
