Default Connector Swap On Transducer?

I just bought a Lowrance HDS and I want to use my existing Airmar tranducer. I've heard bad things about the 83/200 that came with my unit. So I want to use the Airmar that was on my old Lowrance GPS/sonar on the new HDS.

Any one know which wire to which wire? Blue connector (HDS) has 5 wires and the Airmar 3 wire.

All you need is the red (transducer +), black (transducer -), and yellow (temp) wires to connect to your Airmar output.

My Airmar transducer had blue (transducer +), black (transducer -), and brown (temp) wires.

Airmar makes a nice junction box if you don't want to splice with butt connectors.

Why are you re-wiring?
The old P66 should have a standard Lowrance 7 pin connector and that will work on the new HDS unit.
If your old P66 has a Grey connector then no matter how you rewire it... you will not get temperature on the new HDS.

The older Lowrance sonar used digital for temperature..they had grey connectors.
The newer units including HDS , use analog...they have blue connectors.
Neither is backward or forward compatible for temp.


If you do want to splice here is a good junction box.. part no. 33-035..I think this is what Doc was referring to.
