"Thank you. I understand fully. I looked closer at the schematic for both the Raymarine and Lowrance versions of the B744V and indeed there is a wiring difference and a component difference internal to the transducer. Specifically…"
"I checked today and the failure persist. Once the system is powered on, I have to unplug the seatalkng cable and replug it to make the I60 work. If I do not do that the the small display under the needle displays -- and the needle does nothing.…"
Should a new a/c/e/gS-Series MFD be installed onboard, then it may be interfaced to a CP450C. Base upon the depth of operation and features which you are seeking to detect, high receive sensitivity transducers like the R109LM…"
Any GPS sensor other than a Raystar 12 or Raystar 125 (latter requires a software update to the MFD) will need to be interfaced to a 12VDC power circuit and to the NMEA 0183 input leads of the MFD's NMEA 0183 Cable."
I have exactly the same situation, and based on the recommendations in the thread above I have purchased a DY GPS 150. Will I be connecting this unit into the "GPS" connector or the "NMEA183" connector on back of the…"
"Welcome to the Raymarine Technical Forum Normand,
Airmar, Inc. produces transducers for a number of manufacturers, including Raymarine. The product name P79 identifies a family of transducers rather than a single transducer, each of which is…"
I bought a (a80170) (p79) from Budget marine in Grenada and a I50 depthThe a80170 I received has a 6 pins connector. Every where on Web site I see that kind of connector is made for a Garmin product.Can I connect this two item together.ThankSee More
Please not that fishfinder transducers do not feature ultrasonic speed sensing. A separate instrument transducer with i70 Multifunction Instrument would need to be within the system for sensing speed though water ultrasonically. I…"
"Thanks for the info. I do not have a paddle wheel. I do have a transducer that my fish finder uses which might be called an ultrasonic transducer. I was under the impression the speed data came from the GPS of the Raymarine. At any rate it is called…"
