Then you can use a Tm265C-LH or a B165C-LH

I may even have a sued GSD-26 and aTM265 soon as I have customer changing over to a 1040xs.

Let me know. Is the 1040 an upgrade?

He wants the GCV10 side and down scan..plus a built in CHIRP sonar ...so the 1040xs has that capability.

And he only fishes less that 500'

Okay seriously considering upgrading my old 740s to an 840xs with a CHIRP thru-hull ducer.
So most of my bottom fishing is in 125-260ft.
From my calculations, it seems that the B175M will have 85ft diameter coverage at 200' and the B175H will have 53ft.
Am I correct in assuming that the B175M 85ft circle at 200ft is too large to really pinpoint fish near the bottom, right under the boat? Would I be better off with the B175H?

For bottom detail and targeting...I would use the "H.
the narrower the cone the greater the detail....and if you later add the GCV 10 that will be an excellent partnership.

Great, I am looking to get the 840xs new with the warranty but I was wondering if this bare wire B175H would work: http://www.thehulltruth.com/parts-fo...deg-680-a.html

Is there a way to buy a garmin connector to terminate the wires or splice in?

Gil-

I'm curious to know why you recommended the B75M to me vs. the B75H, was it the increased depth and/or wide angle cone? I think the B75M pricing is a little more than the B75H.

Just curious is all. I'm sure either will preform better then my current B60 by far.

Thanks.

The B75M will have far greater depth capability plus wider coverage.
When one is fishing mainly bottom only the B75H / B175H is a option..so for swill777 that is a first option to consider.

No, that wil not work...the 840xs will not recognize the ducer as the XIDis different.

Great info, in that case...

Shoot me a price for the less expensive B75H with a 741xs and price with a 840xs.

Thanks man!

Is this a current shot of the back of a 740/840xs unit?

Name:  Garmin_741xsnewbackview.jpg
Views: 95
Size:  119.3 KB

If so, will my Garmin GMR18 HD radar plug into either one of these? Right now it is connected to my 740s with a round connector.

Another question. Since it has two sonar ports, can I connect a B60 (for 50k shallow use) and the B75H Chirp to the other sonar port? Don't need to use both at the same time, but would like to have both hooked up and selectable.

Thanks!

No. that is not a current image ..that is an earlier model no longer used.

The current xs series units have 1 sonar 8 pin plug.
And your radar will connect to all the xs series units.

If you had a 70s (Or any other xs series) with a B60 connected...and another xs series unit with the B75H....you can select between the two transducers.

Or you can fire the B60 at 50 kHz (the widest cone) on one unit and at the same time as firing the B75H on the other unit.
They will not interfere at those frequencies.

Gotcha, but due to only having one sonar plug you can only have one transducer connected at a time, to a single unit. I guess that clears it up for me. I may just connect my crappy P66 to my HDS-8 to run at 50kHz to find bait along the beach and stuff like that. Then use the B75H for the deeper bottom fishing.

So, does the 741/840xs unit allow you to select a freq like 130kHz for a wider beam and also 210kHz for a narrower beam? Is the CHIRP auto beam/display the "average" of the two?

Yes, you can select a specific freq.


For me...Selecting just a single freq defeats the advantages of the swept frequency CHIRP system.

With the B75H at CHIRP one is hitting the target by sweeping across 80 different frequencies and covering cone angles of 15 to 9 degrees...that is a huge advantage over just a single fired freq.

Let the CHIRP do the work for you...getting a huge amount of energy onto the target by sweeping the band is the key

You can use both..and see what fits you needs..and the good thing is you have flexibility with the CHIRP.

I'm looking for a new system for my 24Regulator.
I've got 2004 Furano I want to replace.
I fish offshore to about 30 miles, depths of 300 or less and would like a unit with down vision or Chirp. I'd also like a radar unit or a system that would tie in radar, plotter, depth.
I'm not concerned with having the biggest and best or the most expensive.
I've used Garmin, Furano, and Raymarine; I like Garmin the most.
I haven't moved to a thru-hull transducer yet but I'm thinking about it.
Could you give me a couple of systems and prices?

Thanks
