Default Y Cable Question

I posted this in the Marine Electronics Forum also, but probably better posted here:

Is there a Y cable that would allow the Hook 7 to run 2 transducers? It's NOT the newer Hook2. The transducer that came with it works ok, but I have another Lowrance transducer I would like to use that I am certain will perform better.

Is there a Y cable (blue connector) that would allow me to use both? I'm certain I would only be able to use one at a time.

You can only use a Y cable with the LSS-2 and the HST-WSBl units.....and on units capable of using using the totalscan etc.

Thank you. I'm hearing there exists a switch with which to use one or the other transducer. Know of this item?

Airmar has the SB260...that allows two non CHIRP ducers wiht one unit..but not cheap..about $275.

If you use a Garmin 7607xsv...you do not need a Y cable or a box......they can fire 2 different transdcuers at the same time.
