Default Delete, wrong transducer

I am buying a used Furuno 585.

My current set-up is a Garmin 4212 with an Airmar P79 shoot-thru hull 'ducer. It reads great on the Garmin...I have yet to lose bottom while running up to around 40 mph..

I want to try it out with the 585 once installed.

The water we fish is shallow...ranges from around 30' up to 130'. The current P79 always shows bottom, so want to use a pigtail of sorts to patch it into the 585. Or cut the current plug off and tie in to the pigtail by direct wiring it.

Will the P79 work for what I want to do?

What do I need to make that happen?

To use the P66 you will need a Furuno pig tail: 33-333
