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?
