Default Down size

Looking to down size from a 2009 model Garmin 4212 chartplotter/sounder to the 740 , are the hook-up's on the back of each unit compatable with each other so i would not have to remove wiring.If not what would i need to make the 740 unit work.Thanks

Greetings:
The power / data cable between the two units are different so the connectors are not the same. The pin outs for the sounder and radar as well as NMEA accessories are compatible. The mounts are different so you will have to replace the gimbal mounts. The 740 can use the same transducer that you have but will plug directly to the unit so it no longer will require the GDS 22. The radar, if you have one, will connectt direct to the unit.
