Default Lowrance Transducer / GPS Connection Question

Does anyone know if Lowrance has changed their connections that hook up the transducer and GPS antenna to the display unit in recent years? I need to upgrade and replace my current basic depth finder and GPS (separate units) with one combo unit. I am not opposed to buying used if anyone is looking to do the same, but I would like to use my current transducer and GPS antenna. The two I have now were purchased new about 6 years ago. I don't know the current model numbers I have off the top of my head, but they are not the flagship models, just basic black and white. Thanks for any information or advice.

You might be able to get NMEA 1083 antenna and transducers--but you will have to rig the plugs--today they are using NMEA 2000 for most antennas, and plugs probably will vary--but AirMar probably can hook you up with a transducer. The model numbers will help.

Replaced my Lowrance 113hd, about 6 yrs old, with a lowrance hds10 gen2. Used old power plug & transducer. Did not need my gps module as new unit has built in. Everything fits & works. Keeping my old unit which works fine, as a backup.
