I have a Garmin Livescope and I damaged the cable that comes out of the transducer (one of the wires is cut), Is this repairable?
Thank you

Call Jones Trolling Motor service in Texarkana. They are an authorized and factory trained Garmin install/repair shop. They will give you a correct answer. My thoughts for what it is worth is you are going to have to buy a new transducer. But Im not an expert by any means. You could also call Garmin technical support and find out from them as well. Because of the slop in that cable and a previous bad experience, I always watch out for the cable when I deploy the trolling motor. I think I read over on bass boat central that some person spliced their cable that they cut when the trolling motor got it during deployment. Sorry for your issue.

Likely not repairable. The voltages on the wiring is often extremely low, and the impedance is very important in getting a clean signal. A repair causes a major disruption in active impedance, which is likened to a clog in a drain pipe - it just doesn't function very well that way. Call Garmin to find out for sure, but I'm guessing not repairable.
