Fishfinder questions

Discussion in 'Boats and Motors' started by bronzback, May 12, 2004.

  1. I am restoring an old bassboat that already has a working fishfinder on it, the problem is that it is very old and the screen is faded. Can I just buy a new unit of the same brand and connect it to the same old transducer? Thanks in advance.

    You could always give it a try. Depending on what unit you buy, it may come with a new transducer so you will have a back-up for when the old one goes south...

  3. some humming bird trasducers are interchangable i have a garmin 160 used ill part with for around 80 dollers works fine im just wanting to up grade to a biger unit
  4. Lark if I knew for sure that it worked I would buy it. Thank you anyways.
  5. tell ya what if it dosnt work ill give ya your money pluse shipping back
  6. bronzback, what kind of fishfinder do you have? The manufacturer can tell you what will interchange. Many fishfinders are sold without transducers, but I'm fairly certain that a transducer from one manufacturer will not work with a fish finder from another.
