I just bought one of these units to put on the bow. Does anyone know which trolling motor transducer works with this unit? It's not the mega imaging unit.

Thanks

Depends on whether you won't Side scan/down scan or just sonar. If you want side and down scan you'll need a special bracket to mount the transducer to the TM. I would call David at Shut Up and Fish, he probably has what you're looking for. 972-822-9285

Like others said depends on the unit you have. I have the Helix 9 DI/GPS up front and use the XTM 9 WIDE DI 20 T.

If you just bought the unit new you can exchange the included transom mount transducer with Humminbird for the above mentioned trolling motor version.

Sure can for $60.00 but expect to be put on a wait list from Humminbird, it took me two months to get one.

It's the side imaging model. What model did they send you Mike Kennan?

If it's the side scan model then you have the long transducer that is for transom mount. If you want to mount it on the TM you will need a special bracket such as the one Transducer Shield and Saver makes. If you're interested I can get you their number. I'm assuming you bought the complete unit and not just the head.

This is the transducer you should have.

As long as you haven't installed it you can swap it for free. The $60 he is referring to is if you wanted to upgrade.

Yours should have came with the XNT 9 SI 180 T, you need the XTM 9 SI 180 T.

This link has the exchange instructions as well as the transducer options.

The one in your picture looks like a Mega transducer, that isn't what he has.

The one they sent me for $60.00 is
XTM-9-wide-DI-20T
I run this on my Ultrex, it has better shielding from the interference
