If you have a Mix N Match style it will work. Basically, does your transducer cable have a plug about 5' from the ducer, then another 25' up to the unit? Or is it hardwired straight from the ducer to the unit? If you have the 5' arrangement then you have Mix N Match and it is adaptable. Otherwise it is not adaptable.

Would an m260 be an option ?? for lowrance hds7,,or what is your recommendation for something in hull,,,?

For in-hull you can eiter use a 600W P79 or a 1kW M260. The M260 wil work great with an HDS unit. It has a narrow cone angle so I would not recommend it if you are primarily in 100 and less. But it would be great in deeper water.

Hey Jim ,,I was told by Airmar that the Airmar Diplexer Low would work here. Are you familiar with this,,do you stock? They say ya just wire the transducer as described and then its Plug and Play. I am really trying not to take this out if I can make it work. Whay is the cost if you supply these. All your input appreciated. Joe

They are probably talking about this http://www.boemarine.com/Products/GCO-DIPLEX-LOW/
I have never done this conversion, but if they say it works then it must work.
