Default Simrad go7xsr

I recently purchased a simrad go7 xsr package to run the CMOR mapping system and would like to add a transom mount transducer for deep dropping to about 1500 feet. Looking at the airmar transducers and it looks like the Tm260 and the Tm185M are options. Does anyone have input on how either would function on this unit?. Simrad is of no help and airmar says to contact simrad so not getting any answers ! Thank You !

Yes, GO7 XSR will work well with TM185M and TM260. For 1500' TM260 will be best due to the 50 kHz element. TM260 can with Simrad be operated in CHIRP mode with good results.

Thank you ! The guy at airmar was concerned that the TM 260 would only operate at 200kHz with this unit so wasn't sure - I can't find anything in my manual that states what frequencies the go7 will operate at .

GO7 XSR is supporting 50/83/200kHz and all CHIRP bands.

Isn’t the go7 500w output, (even though the transducer is larger than a 600w and reads return signals much better).

No, GO transmit power is closer to 1kW than 500W. I've measured, but decided not to disclose the exact number.
