Default Simrad NSS evo3 with Airmar M265c-LH transducer connection???

Hi,
I am new to the forum. First hello to everybody.

I would need some help wiring M265 transducer to my Simrad NSS12evo3.
What kind of adapter or connector do I need to buy to get the most out of dual band CHIRP?
Could you please keep it simple as I am not an electronics maniac .
Thank you

P.S. if there was a similar thread don't hesitate to direct me there.

Hi abbor,

thank you for your quick answer.

Is it a plug and play thing? I mean is it easy to install or you need some kind of special tools and wires?

No special tools required at all.

Reviving this thread to ask a question. I have the NSSEvo3 and want to hook it up to my TM265lh transducer. Previous owner had it hooked to the garmin unit and it's been cut and spliced. Anyone know what I would need to add a new plug to the airmar harness and what that plug may be called? Happy to solder and tinker as needed.

You can use the same unit listed in post #2

The adapter is required for transducers distributed by Navico.

In US Airmar transducers are also distributed by Gemeco, M265LH in mix & match version combined with
​​one MMC-9N and one MMC-9N2 cable will give you a transducer with two 9-pin X-sonic connectors for Evo3.

It means the same transducer can be used with most brands. They have an Airmar connector about 3' from the transducer and then Airmar makes mix & match cables for most compatible sounders.

Actually CHIRP mix and match now have a 9m cable and a standardized plug. (Looks like a Raymarine DSM300 style connector) the mix and match cable brand to brand, connector to connector and even FREQ to FREQ are now 1m.

600w and 1kw 50/200khz mix and match were and still are standardized connector about 3ft from transducer..

I've been looking at the EVO3 NSS12. Since I already have an airmar m260 box installed I want to just drop in a new M265C-LH transducer. Is the Navico Xsonic Pigtail Wiring Block Adapter all I need? Hooking it up between the airmar and the NSS12 makes it a plug and play connection? No other black boxes required?

Just waiting on my order to arrive but have an Evo3 and the xsonic pig tail coming. Will install to my 265 transducer as soon as it arrives. Happy to post up on results.

If you purchase an M265 with the Mix and Match cable, you can get the adapter for a 9 pin Navico with dual CHIRP. No wiring block needed.
