I recently purchased a boat that has 3 HB units networked, but it does not have a thru hull transducer attached. What parts or pieces do I need to add for it to work. Here is my current set up

Console
Helix 12 HW MSI GPS Gen2
Helix 10 DI GPS

Bow
Helix 12 Chirp SI GPS

Like I said I want to add a thru hull transducer for 2D when running. My old boat I installed a splitter on a HB 598 SI and had a dead mans switch for the 2. Do I use a similar switch or can it work automatically?

Any help is appreciated!

Best
Ken

To be a G2N with HW, that would be the special run 2019/2020 HW SI Promo unit and not the original G2N of 2017/2018 vintage. The SHOOT-THRU for it is XP 9 HW. The current Y cable is 9 M SIDB Y.

There no transducer switch that works with MEGA units. AND there is no "automatic" and never has been. The Y cable disconnects the 2D piezo in the SI transducer (no wires) and connects the added shoot-thru in its place (wires). NOTHING changes except the physical location of the 2D piezo.

Use the 9 M SIDB Y cable to connect the SI transducer and shoot-thru transducer to the G2N Helix. NO switch is available to do what you have done=doesn't exist=not possible.
