Does anyone have two side imaging transducers mounted to the back of their boat? I have helix 10 at console and garmin 126sv with livescope up front? I ordered gt56 transducer and another mount for the 126sv so I can use maps and garmin side imaging at console. When I want to use livescope I will just put 126sv in front mount. My question is can you mount the hummingbird and garmin side imaging together or do they have to be on opposite sides of the motor? Spoke with Garmin rep who didn’t have a clear answer. He said it might have interference if on same frequency. Does anyone know for sure or has ran two side imaging units at the same time?

I had a helix 10 at the dash with the transducer mounted to jackplate on starboard side and then mounted the Garmin 54 transducer (same Garmin 126SV) on the port side of the jackplate - was getting interference on the left side of the side scan (3 or 4 blue vertical lines) - I had both the helix and garmin mounted on transducer saver mounts - the Helix 10 transducer was not active. Spoke to transducer saver and they had provided me some spacers to mount the garmin so I removed the helix transducer and moved the garmin one to the left side of the jackplate - haven't had time to see if that fixed it or not. On mine there was no room to try to mount them on the same side.
