I know sounds like a stupid question.. but figured I would ask anyway.
But thinking of getting forwardscan for my boat
. I HAVE a DST800 triducer now. works great.
Aside from the forward scan information, does the FS transducer
provide the same depth
information/N2k sentence to the NMEA2000 network as the DST800? It will be hooked up to my Vulcan 5 (accepts the FS transducer). Will I basically have 2 depth
sounders?? If I remove the DST800, will the depth on my triton displays and plotters on my network show the depth?
My thought was this:
I have my DST800 in a fairing block, so the bottom is parallel to the earth so the depth works properly. I also have an unused hole in my boat
from a previous speed transducer
, but is not parallel to the earth, so not ideal for depth.
I was going to move the DST800 to the unused hole, and use the speed and temp only the DST800 transducer, and get the depth from the FS (if it outputs depth to the N2k network in the proper sentence)
Thoughts if this would work
? Or do I need to make a new fairing block for the other hole for the FS transducer (which is what I am trying to avoid)!
