Hi all,still can't decide on a second unit to go with my Elite 7 Ti, I can get the Hook 7 Reveal with triple shot for £438 or Garmin striker 9" for £389 without a transducer but tending towards the Lowrance units,the 9"Hook has gone up from what I had originally looked at,I'll maybe stick the 7 on the console and see what it's like for space,just don't wan't to be blowing cash for nothing,is the triple shot transducer worth the extra money?
Cheer's.
If garmin you do have to buy a transducer anyway. If to hook you not and the transducer to work on the elite of to have the end. You can to buy change ends.
You do have no transducer now. I say to get the hook to triple shot and to a cheap 2/1 tranaducer. You can then to swap to each unit.

They are good. I do write for them on here before lots. They are do to use the same tech as the old high eyebrows. To be the network and engine is just what changed to the elite ti2

It not to matter Bill. They do swap.
Once you do to use them you will decide and to play with how you do like the displays. If you do want to see it onto the right plug to the right. If to the left plug to the left. They do to be so similar unit that it to be the same return no matter. Just to run the wires so you can to swap the two with no hassle

I was just wondering if the Elite had better features and would give more info.
You do to have the older elite and to have the newer hook. The hook now will to be getting the tech the elite did have, which the hds did have before that. More or less. The units will be onto roughly the same level as eachother.

Just checked the transducer on the Elite and the fitting is different from the Hook reveal, also the old blue plug transducer won't fit either ( I have an old plug and tried it)I'll post a picture and we'll see what Lady Half Pint makes off it. I bought a Hook 2 transducer to use with it as a spare, also though of splicing the Airmar P319 that I have and using that. So I've a few Lowrance Elite bits for sale now, my Enet cable isn't any use to me either.
Cheers Bill.

Bill, that not to be good, the transducer should to be the same. It to be the same models used on the lowrance chart i do use so unless they did to keep the transducer and to swap the plug end it to not make much sense. Lowrance to be quite good at to keep same tech for units unless to be a major change into unit.
Send some pictures and to figure out.
So do you to has transducer that to fit each unit now, or just one to fit the hook?

If they tell not exist then you to have to splice.
They to do the end changes for many Bill.
The cx107 is old for simrad or raytheon. Before it did to be raymarine.
