Default garmin FF or something else?

i have a P66 transducer which is new that i would like to keep, plus it's a PIA to pull and re-run the cord from my transom to the console

i have a old garmin 240 which i would like to replace
am i stuck with a 340, etc or can i use the ducer as is on something else?

any suggestions in my price range ($300-400)?

The Garmin 250C replaced the 240 blue I believe Chris.

Worst Marine has a table to show interconectivity from one brand to another I believe, and the airmar site also has a simular table.

I went through the exact same thing a few months back.
Check with these folks.

They are the distributors for Airmar and offer a "splitter/wiring" box that you can use to go "from-to" with most units. I took a P66 set up for a Garmin 240 and went to a Furuno FF. Works great but them's some tiny wires. Ya just need to know for sure which unit you want to go too. Best I can remember the whole thing, box and Furuno end was around $65.

The Airmar P66 is a dual frequency transducer operating at 50 and 200 KHz. This will work with Garmin units and any other brand requiring a 50/200 KHz transducer. You can get adaptors for the cable to work with other brand FF, but you will pay for the adaptor as the example above.
