You need to use the power cable supplied with the 942xs......and if you keep the B60 which is a 6pin..you will need the 8 pin wire block adapter.

If you wish to go to CHIRP..then a B75 will retro into the B60 hole.

If you have a Garmin 740s..it only used the 6 pin transducers...I sold several hundred 740x units when they were out ...and they all used 6 pins ducers.

When the 840xs,1040xs,76XXsv ,942xs units came out they went to an 8 pin ducer

The older units used to have adapters at the time of the 6 to 8 pin changeover.
As of now the 1042xsv,1242xsv units all ship with a 8 to 12 pin adapter.
No current units ship now with a 6 to 8 pin adapter.
