I do realize the issue is not with the HB unit. I would love to go straight to the HDSI transducer and get another Shield and Saver but there goes more money when I have the Saver for the stock transducer. Wonder if Shield and Saver would swap them out for me?
I just hate to get the puck transducer and have the same issue when the HDSI could possible be better. I've heard a lot of people say that the HDSI ducer won't be a benefit when it comes to the display but with the larger size shouldn't it be somewhat better/? Better enough to justify the price over the puck which would be an even swap?
As far as rebuilding the Maxxum... I just put the thing on there! What on earth would Minn Kota say when I requested my motor be rebuilt?! Minn Kota would walk across the hall and meet the guys from Humminbird at the water cooler and have a knee slapper over that one! Seriously, I am starting to think I was more content and more focused on the fish when I wasn't so focused on what my electronics were doing. Those were the days when I was in love with my trolling motor rather than looking at it like I do the ex-wife.
So do I recall someone on here (or another site) that said HB worked with them on the HDSI ducer, shipping and all? I don't want something for nothing, I just want the stuff to work.
