Has anyone mounted the ducer on a trolling motor and how? The compact ducer for this unit is 200 bucks. TSS is making a shield for the larger ducer due out in a couple of weeks.

Thinking about two elite 7's. Found this link that answers some of the questions I had. It may be helpful.

NS, I have one of those old mounting brackets, but that ducer is an expensive lil baby to have to replace. I guess I'll live dangerously for a while. Thanks for the pic. Transducer Shield will have a shield for these in a couple of weeks.

Not to confuse the issue, but what about temp.? Is there a separate transducer to mount in the hull that has temp cable attached to it that is run to the outside transom? Thanks

Yes. It comes with everything you need for sonar, down imaging and GPS. It took some hunting online for me to find a cover though

it is a good average person fishing tool without some things on it that most of us never use anyway like recording- i think it only has one sd slot but it would be all this country boy would ever use. I have 3 gen 2s on the boat now but I would not hesitate to use these for what I need
