So if I want to eventually hook up all the units I would need to install and use the AS ETH 5PXG hub and an Ethernet cable between the hub and displays because right now I can connect both units using an Ethernet cable...but there are no more connections for more units.
So all DI units come with the transom DI transducer XNT 9 DI T, which makes sense. I obviously wouldn't want to put that on a trolling motor. So basically I am buying a new unit and not using that transom transducer? That sucks because of the price. I am wondering if I can just look to buy a unit since I would already have a DI transducer for the trolling motor. What do people usually do? What are your thought on a SI/DI unit on the trolling motor? I have always ran a DI unit and used SI at the console.
I saw that you stated I got the wrong DI trolling motor transducer to get the best performance out of my 858 DI. I should have bought the XTM 9 WIDE DI 20 T so I can use 83/200 kHz 2D sonar instead of 200/455 kHz. If that's the case, I will more than likely eventually buy the XTM 9 WIDE DI 20 T. I have a couple of questions because you said I would then get the best performance with my 858 DI.
(1) So what is the difference between the two? One has a larger range of sonar?
(2) Does the XTM 9 WIDE DI 20 T produce more clear or better DI results or 2D sonar results, or both?
(3) As for now if I stick with the XTM 9 DI 25 T, what would I be missing? I am not quite sure the difference between 83/200kHz and 200/455 kHz.
(4) If I stick with the XTM 9 DI 25 T, what would be the best way to set it up? Meaning settings or anything I can change, such as kHz or something in the unit settings menu?
Also, one last question...what would be the best settings on my 999SI unit? The reason I am asking is I feel like both my 858DI unit and 999SI unit are not viewing like picture perfect screen shots that I see or picking up individual bait balls above weeds. I can start at factory settings and play around with it but wanted to pick your brain. Thanks
