Default older Garmin / newer Air Transducer - Can I upgrade

So - bought my boat two years ago and the depth meter kept on losing bottom - which is a bad thing in Tampa Bay.

After so extensive trouble shooting - decided it was the transducer that was giving me issues - so went with a decent transducer - an Airmar tilted element that I had installed the last time I had the boat hauled.

Well - now the screen is going on the dept finder - and I'd like to replace with a Sitex svs650

Anybody know if I can connect? Sitex refers to the B60 in their list - but I know that Garmin and Lowrance bot have their versions.

Here's the label from my installed transducer

Yes, you can change from a Garmin head to a Si-tex with your B60 but it requires a new pig tail.
I can show you how.


Pm sent.
