Searched around and found nothing, is Airmar really the only show in town, my second Triducer (B744V) failed, not happy with product reliability. Their temp sensor in the unit is a known failure point yet they don't honor it, they tell you to buy a new insert!

if your temp probe is repeatedly blowing up, you have an electrical problem on the boat. their 10k thermistor has been the same going back 15+ years and they generally last 3-6 years (I normally see 4-5), when they fail you replace the insert with a wired insert and a j-box, not the whole transducer

In 15 years, I've never had or seen one go bad???????????????
Especially the newer ones, they are digital somehow like the digital laser thermometers you point at things to read the temp.
