Default Si-Tex to Garmin

I have a Sci-Tex CVS-106 unit and a thru-hull transducer that reads speed, temp and depth.

Is the transducer transferable to a Garmin setup? I cannot find any type of model information.

It's a Radarsonics model 400. The transducer can be converted to a Garmin, but you will have to cut the connectors and rewire. What is the frequency of the Sitex sounder , this will tell what the transducer is and if it will match the Garmin unit you are looking at. The transducer on you boat is ( not a chirp or broadband transducer)

I think I'll end up just upgrading the transducer. From what I can tell though I will need to plug the extra hole from the temperature transducer of the installed transducer that is in there now. It appears to have (2) different holes.

Ideas for the plug for this? Looks like I have a lot of options to upgrade the transducer to fit the larger hole.
