Hey all, got some unexpected time on my hands and in need of a fun project
and could use some experienced input.
I have two relic thru-hull transducers I have removed (stopped working) that were previously outputting speed and depth
. I plan on installing a triducer in one spot that will be integrated into a networked system including AIS
, AP, Wind
, Speed, Depth
, & Temp, which will be viewed on a nav computer, a couple I70s and a couple Ipads. (comments/suggestions on this welcome too)
For the other spot, I want to install a back-up depth sensor and got thinking maybe to install a stand-alone fish
finder. My primary systems triducer will likely be the DST800 (235khz) so the secondary would need to be outside of that frequency. My question is, what would be a decent backup on its own separate system? Ideally would like to keep the 2" hole the way it is for the new transducer
but could be persuaded otherwise. Not married to any particular brand since it won't need to talk to anything else.
Primary means of use is for long-term cruising.
Thanks for your input, and hoping everyone is staying healthy. Crazy times!
