I am getting ready to install the above on my 17 foot deep v alum and any helpful do's an d don't will be appreciated. The transducer will be mounted on left side of transom, the unit will replace my eagle 640 c. Unit will be on the bow platform . Figure I will be able to read unit from console. If not will reinstall on the console. Promised myself I would not install until I have read and understand the manual. Any advice will be appreciated.
