David, does this have a transducer that can be swapped for the shielded one for no cost? Thx
The unit comes with the transom mount Compact SI XNT 9 SI 180 T transducer. If you want to put a SI transducer on the trolling motor, then yes exchange the transducer for the extra shielded trolling motor puck version XTM 9 SI 180 T.
Even better, the added cost XTM 9 HDSI 180 T transducer that produces sharper images. You can use either the trolling motor model or transom model XHS 9 HDSI 180 T. The difference is the cable length 15' vs 20' and the included mount. Those transducers have the extra internal shielding also that the Compact SI transom transducer does not have.
