    Hummingbird 798c SI transducer installation

Rated:

 Wanted to put transducer on trolling motor but the unit comes with a transom mounted transducer. I'd rather not pay another $200 for a special transducer for the trolling motor. Do these work better with the transducer mounted on the transom or is there a adapter available to mount this on the trolling motor? Seems like if its mounted on the back of the boat, you'll be already past the point that shows up on the side imaging screen.

You can exchange the transducer for the trolling motor type (see picture). You can order trolling motor adaptor kit from Humminbird for the transom transducer. You can get a solid protective mount for the transom transducer from Transducer Shield and Saver for the trolling motor ( some say it is the best choice)

 As Wayne stated we do have a Transducer Exchange program here at Humminbird. Just call 800-633-1468 and they will take care of you.

   Great feedback folks! THANKS!!! from WeekendWarrior  4/3/2010 7:19:48 PM
 I bought an adapter to mount it on my trolling motor...although the photo Wayne provided looks better than my installation...mine seems to work. Hope I don;t bury it too many times retrieving hung up lures. Thanks again folks. This is a great site!
