tcalef Hi All,

I can give you a hand with your Datamarine components. I just aquired all of the old stock from Datamarine, and I am doing service and building up new units out of old stock. I have all manuals and schematics. If you need a hand let me know, I'll see if I can help!

Anyone seen or heard of this? Is there a manual available online anywhere?
I don't know what the problem is, but I think MSD stands for "minimum sounding depth."

sander06 The "fishfinder"-type depthfinders go as cheap as $80 for a little Hummingbird. I think it's a hoot that sailors go for the standard digital depth readout that tells nothing about bottom conditions while fishermen use the chart-type depthfinder that provides info about depth, depth trends, bottom contour and, best of all, bottom-composition, ie. hardness or softness, grass, obstructions, etc.

I would heartily suggest you ditch your old digital depthfinder for one that provides a lot more info useful for anchoring than just depth. The mounting is a simple inside the hull mount, shooting through the hull itself so there are no external openings.

Good-luck, mate, in your decision. Worse come to worse, toss a sounding lead over the side.

I don't think you can. Its the instrument that provides the NMEA and not the ducer ( in datamarines case). The particular ducer uses a BNG type of cable (it basically provides a resistance value to the Datamarine instrument). Not familiar with the Garmin Series but I am pretty sure you need to see what Airmar ducers (industry standard for all marine instrument display companies) are compatible with the Garmin GMI 10...
