Re: Transducer Help

OP says 3D transducer......you can not plug a 3D xdcr into the MFD. So, if he is connecting both transducers into the back of the MFD, he doesn't have a 3D transducer, he has either TotalScan or SS-HD. If he has TotalScan transducer he will need to upgrade to Carbon or SS3D module and transducer. If...

Re: Transducer Help

Actually you already fixed your problem. By selecting the correct transducer in the installation menu, which you did, it will always read 2D depth from the PDRT. There is no way for you to 'select' the 3D transducer in the installation, nor will the SS3D transducer produce any 2D data. When on a str...

So if you want Ethernet (what you need for sharing all info/data) you need HDS Gen3 or HDS Carbon. The Elite ti series has some N2K support for sensors but no Ethernet.

If you find some of your lakes are not included, you can submit sonar logs of your own to have maps created.
