You will need Lowrance units with NMEA network - HDS or Elite-Ti models. Bass Pro Grapevine normally has in stock what you need.
Lowrance Elite-Ti 7 will be your least expensive 'new' option.

The Xi5 should have come with the Lowrance sonar cable with the blue connector. If you have that, and you're just wanting to connect the Hook-2 4x to the transducer in the Xi5, then you can use the 000-14070-001 adapter cable to covert from the 7 pin blue to the 6 pin black connector.

The cable that you see on the trolling motor (blue connector) plugs/screws into the back of your Lowrance unit for 2D sonar from the trolling motor transducer.

This is interesting, my Elite-7 HDI has an NMEA socket on the back, will it work with my Xi5 and if so what functions will work? I've been told I need an HDS gen 2 or greater to work with the Xi5?

i think Dave i need the adaptor plug wire as the cheep hook 2/x4 is one that the blue plug wont fit. motorguide said there are several Lowrance units it wont fit without the adapter.Lowrance said i need an Elite 7 or up for it to plug into the unit.other than that they said id need that adaptor
