I just bought a used Garmin HDS7 looking to get a Airmar P66 Transducer for it. Any one have one? Or have any opinions on if this is what i really need?

Sepmer, I have a P66 and an HDS 10. In the Lowrance set up menu there are 2 selections for P66, one says "5k" and the other says "10k". What is the difference and which should we select?

Thanks

What your are selecting is the resistance for the temperature therimister.
For the HDS you select the 5k.

Over the years Lowrance has changed its temperature circularity from digital (10 K) to analog (5k) .

If you select the wrong setting no damage will be done....except for the fact that you will now have a greater possibility of having your tax return audited by the IRS.....:grin:

Salty King,

I have a P66 to sell, provided Semper gets back to me regarding a replacement transducer I recently inquired about. :sleeping:

I have a Garmin version of the P66 as backup shallow water ducer on my mako. I recently had to cut off the end and rerun the wire for my F350 install. Now my wire is to short to resplice and I need to add about 6 feet of length where the splice is.

It looks to me like my P66 is only using 3 conductor wires of appoximatly 24-26 gauge with a shield around them. I have a bunch of shielded 4 conductor 22 gauge wire lying around and I am wondering if I can use that to splice in? If not what wire would you reccomend I splice in?

Thanks and regards,
John

Thanks, I will search them. Just curious, Is there anything special about it? It does not look like for me.

A Garmin uses 6 wires if you want to get speed, temp,depth and all your grounds.
And it sometimes helps to re-connect the shields..keeps out interference.
