Default Best way to sell used electronics

Is it worth uninstalling all wires and transducers or selling head unit separated?

You will have a much broader market, and better pricing, for a complete unit rather than selling only the head unit. And why leave an old transducer and wiring on your boat? Remove it all and sell as a package.

Found THT best for year around sales. Here in Minnesota November, December and January are slow times to sell electronics unless you cut price on sites like Craigs List. My best success is with year around sites

For Lowrance units, plug and play HDS units. No issues with or without cables/transducers

Best way, price them right...

Next, sell everything needed to get them to work, i.e. wires, cables, ducer, etc.

Good luck

I always sell my electronics with all cables and accessories including documentation in the original packaging. Since the units are placed inside a pilothouse and the boat on trailer is parked indoors when not used they look like new when I've cleaned them. I get better prices than anyone I know for my used electronics.
