That's your fuel flow sensor and NMEA2000 connection. Priceless. When you hook up your new unit your system will see everything on the network. Plug in your tank size in the settings and add gph/fuel remaining on your screen. Super handy item. Make sure you hit refuel when you fill up.

Miles, thank you. It's amazing I had this boat threee years and never notice that sensor. While I'm digging threw the mess of wires the previous owners left me maybe I'll find more.

Today I'm going to cleanup wires before putting it back together.

Thank you

Surprise surprise. While swapping my garmin dome to a 3g lowrance, the mounting bolt spacing is identical........mind blown. I got up this morning fully expecting to drill a bunch of new holes in stainless.

I got up this morning hoping not to drill holes and learned the total scan transducer mounting was not even close to my HDS gen 1.

Then I learned there maybe issues if the trim is all the way down and motor turned all the way to the starboard side. The total scan transducer is really long.

I moved the bar on the lower trim up one notch so it won't hit. I hope that works and won't make that much difference when trying to get on plane. I have trim tabs so it shouldn't be a problem.
