Take a good look at the yellow wire in the powercable from the SS 3D module. It should go to the read and to a switch, or to the same yellow in your NSS.

After the update you can manually set the transducer as it will be listed. (But make sure you are looking at Channel 2, not Channel 1.)

Yes.

Pingrate and scrollspeed - not the same but both are important.

Financially, lithium-based batteries is a no-brainer. They typically provide 3000+ cycles, while lead-based batteries do 3-500 if cared for. So even if the initial cost is 3-4 times higher, lithium...

The 2D in 3 in 1 is max 300W. The 2D-element is the same as in TotalScan and med/ high HDI.
