Santa was goo to me and a new 94sv Garmin is ready to install. I,ve thought about a through hull or in hull as opposed to the transom mount that came with it. Anyone have advice on this?

i have the transducer on the stern. Side view only works this way. I researched your same question and went with the included ducer for the same purpose

it was pretty straight forward for me. I did cut a starboard trim piece and 5200 that to my transom to act as a stern saver. That ducer does spray a lot. Some guys have built splash guards, i read on tht, i just moved it around until it didnt spray and i get a good down and side scan at 25mph, it isnt quite accurate above that but chances are im cruising not fishing if im going faster.....


I flush mounted mine and I got my nmea network talking to my vhf and to my suzuki outboard displaying all of my engine temps, hours, etc on the screen i can take some pictures if youd like.

use garmin mapsource for inputing numbers. It is great you can overlay with google earth and get a better understanding of where the spots really are if you are in shallow waters.

I am computer illiterate!! I went to Garmin Map source and have it to where it looks like you can enter a number, how do you do that as no place to enter shows up? Help.

i am actually working on putting in gps numbers through the computer now. I didnt think it was possible. A good friend is a charter captian and said it is. Once we figure it out, I can make a little video and post it to youtube or whatever.
