    Here is an updated photo. In order to remove the internal temperature capability from transducers with the blue connector you need to remove pin # 4 from the connector.

    All though this is for a Totalscan transducer, its the same principal for mounting a Skimmer style transducer:

    ***Lowrance Help Topics, Networking Diagrams, Wiring Diagrams***

    It seems like we have questions about 2 or 3 times a week asking if a certain combination of HDS units and features are compatible. These are all valid questions that usually are not well documented by Lowrance. So, I thought we could crowd source a compatibility matrix and if the mods think it is useful we could make it a sticky to aid anyone who has a compatibility question. I'll start the matrix with a few of the things I've seen asked and the rest of you guys can post comments for things to add. I'll then edit this post to expand the matrix as we add new things. I hope the community finds this useful.

    If there is a ? in a field that means I am not certain of the answer and will need your input to update the matrix.
