Add new unit - Questions

Post by Marchand81 » Sat May 28, 2016 12:53 pm

Hey Guys, I'm sure someone has already asked this question but I couldn't find an answer here.

So my setup is that I have a helix 12 GPS at the bow and a 999 si at the wheel. I have everything networked so I can use my 999 SI transducer on my Helix up front which is great.

Now i'm looking at upgrading my 999 to a helix 10. The plan was since I already have a SI transducer mounted was that i'd just get a helix 10 DI and not get the helix 10 SI. The question is will my already mounted SI transducer work with and helix 10 DI unit? just trying to save a little $$ so I can get a 360..

Side note my plan is to use the DI transducer with my 999 on another boat.


Thoughts?

No you cannot connect a Side Imaging transducer to a Down Imaging unit to get SI.

The unit determines the sonar capability, not the transducer.

You can share sonar data via Ethernet, but the data has to be processed by the unit so it can be shared.
