I have an old datamarine depth sounder transducer
that reads out to a Datamarine head
that is the same size as the newer Raymarine
60+ heads. The display in the datamarine head
has faded to where it is barely readable.
1. Is there an adjustment to increase the contrast on the old datamarine units. It is as if there is no contrast.
2. If I have to replace, will I be able to use the old datamarine transducer
to the new Raymarine
ST 50 or 60 head, or will I have to install a new transducer as well. I saw a post from 2015 that said someone used a Raymarine bidata 50 and it worked. There isn't any label or markings on the Datamarine transducer.
Suggestions? I guess I can just order an ST 50 or 60, hook it up, and see if it works. (Would rather save for new AIS
