My C&C has a Garmin echoMAP CHIRP 54dv mounted on a swivel arm and a SignetMarine SL250 Base model in the bulkhead. The Signet came with a six pin transducer and paddlewheel. The paddlewheel worked for a while after I cleaned the bottom of the boat two season back, so I really only use the speed from my GPS. I would like to replace all of this with an all in one chartplotter, but I also want to continue to use my transducer. Looking at the usual suspects, Garmin, RayMarine and B&G, it does look like I can get an adapter for my six pin transducer to whatever model chartplotter I purchase. Just wondering if anyone has had success with this approach. I guess if it does not work, the next time I take the boat out of the water, I would replace my transducer.
