This is going to a charter boat with an old furuno 667 bottom machine. I am guessing that transducer is not going to work. Prices I have seen on the non broadband transducers 1k 50/200 are around 600$ the broadband prices up to 1000? that about right?

1. Digital sonars can use almost every current Airmar transducer. The Dff1 can use everything from a P66 ,B60, P79, B744V, B164,Tm258,Tm260,Tm270W,SS264 Pairs, B260,B271W,M260 plus a few more.

And yes, prices go from $600 to over $1000. for the 1 Kw units.

For non broadband 600 watt units that can be used with the Dff1 can go from $100. to $200.
