Navman 5500 crook

Recommended Posts

My boat came with the old transducer not working (sold as "it's all good! just needs to be calibrated" which I suspect they knew wasn't true). Someone had glassed over the top of it inside the hull too, so replacement would have been a bit of work.

I bought at Garmin Striker 4 and mounted the transom transducer inside my hull, screwed into a frame, and sitting on a bed of silicone. Shoots through 1 inch of kauri without trouble. Tested it first sitting on a plastic bag of water. The display unit is customised to just show depth and GPS speed so it's nice and big and easy to read. A pretty reasonable $300 workaround.
