Hi Folks! My yacht is fitted with the standard Sailpack of Raymarine
ST60 instruments. The Depth
unit operates via the supplied Airmar P319 depth
transducer. I would like to add a low cost fishfinder
to the boat but dont want to add another transducer (steel boat so needs thru-hull transducer). It seems that several fishfinders (Raymarine, Garmin
, Lowrance etc) list the P319 as an option for transducer. Since I will either be using the boat as a either primarily a sailing vesel (and hence prefer the simplicity of the ST60 depth readout), or chasing fish
(and hence prefer the detailed view of the fishfinder), i was pondering having either unit operate via the existing transducer, but switch between device by having the transducer wired via a 3 pole double throw toggle switch.
My main question is are all Airmar P319 transducers the same, just with different pluge to suit different instruments?
Does anyone see a flaw in my plan (before I go out & buy a fishfinder)?
