How do I tell which transducer goes with what unit

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Electronics Specialist can help you best.

I have a x135 and a x59df one transducer. I do not know which one it fits so I can order another transducer

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Electronics Specialist should be aware of?

Can I run a x59df and a x135 transducers next to each other

There should be a silver tag near the plug for the transducer, there will be several numbers on it. What are those numbers?

As for running the transducers next to each other, you can if you are only using one unit at a time. If both units are on, there will need to be at least 12" between the units to limit interference between the units.

I have an HDS9 with the transom transducer. I would like to put a transducer on my Minn-Kota bow mount trolling motor. I would also, at the same time, like to add a speed wheel or equivalent. I will primarily use the front transducer to follow contours as the rear transducer shows what I've already been over. With down riggers it's easier (from past experience) to follow a ridge contour with the front transducer. What can I use? And in which ports do each plug into on my unit? Will I have to unplug the rear transducer when I want to use the front transducer? Is there a transducer that has “temperature, sonar, and speed”? … read more
