So, was looking at getting a HDS9 Gen 3 cause I'm tired of my Elite7 freezing and/or shutting off and/or dropping trails multiple times per hour. . .

Was looking at buying the unit with no transducer, but from what I have read so far, I can't determine if the 83/200/455 skimmer and power cord/connector for the Elite7 is compatible with HDS9 Gen3.

I understand that I will not have structure scan or sidescan capabilities, but that's fine. . ..I can always add the transducer later if I find I can't live without it.

Could someone confirm whether or not the power cord and transducer for the Elite 7 will run the HDS9 Gen3 for basic sonar functions?

Thanks

Yes it will work. You have the HDI transducer and it will plug into the "sonar" port on the back of the Gen3. You will need to go into the sonar settings on the gen3, select the installation submenu and select the HDI transducer from the menu.
