I am considering switching from using a 2D sonar transducer and a DI/SI transducer to an "all in one" transducer. What is everyone's opinion of the all in one transducers? Pros/Cons?

Depends on your mount location and boat hull.

It is THE one to use on a trolling motor, maybe not so much for a transom mount.

The larger transducers are tough to get attached properly on the transom for high speed on-plane depth readings. PLUS if you navigate in timber/stumps, you may not want to expose that expensive transducer to possible impact damage.

If you're transducer comes out of the water when on plane, you'll get no depth. Run 2D on a inside the hull transducer and DI/SI exterior mounted.
