I've plugged my lowrance elite x3 so it get power through the aux light switch but I would like to have constant 12v. Do I have to hook it up back inte enginebay or is there constant 12v under the "dash" somewhere?
I epoxyd it on a spot just next to the muffler. Didn't work but turned out to be a transducer cable problem. So I can't tell you if that was a good location becase I hadn't time to test before winterJust wondering ,where did you mount the transducer on your sportster and is the fish finder working well ? I am looking into mounting a similar unit on my Speedster. Most convenient would be through hull but not so sure exactly where to mount it and how well it would work.
I am glad you got the instal done! Looking forward to updates.Thanks for the great information. Just got back from boating on Lake Ontario. The transducer in hull seems to be working well. I am getting good depth readings , just don't know how well the fish finder is working , did not see any fish but it was picking up the bottom and the water seemed mostly clear above the bottom. I guess it is time to learn how to use the fish finder. Prior to the outing, I did disconnect the nearby Sea Doo stock transducer so as to not get interference. The next time I will see if the transducers can work side by side, I believe they both use 200 hz, so not so confident about that.
I'm using transom transducer inhull. Donno witch others there is to use??Hello folks and thanks for posting just helpful information. Which transducers are you using? It seems all the transducers that come with these various 3.5-4 inch garmins are transom mounts. Are you using these same transducers in your hull?
