Re: Motorguide Wireless with built-in transducer ?

Thanks for the reply - its hard geting any feed back on MG motors ? What I really need to know is who can confirm the "generic" transducer will suite the new Lowrance HDS units ? I'll also chase up suitable leads - which I imagine if available - should tell me that they area suitable ? Regards Scotto
