    I have 1040's and love them easy to use, remember the home key is the source for everything on the unit and makes it so easy to navigate

    Pretty certain you will need a GCV 10 for side scan and the 1040 am using only a down scan transducer/chirp

    Others will have a better idea for SS.

    Good

    I'm running a GT52 on the transom and GT15 shoot thru. This setup gets me the best of everything, imo. Perfect depth reading at speed on plane, and down/side imaging when idling. Plus I can split frequency between both transducers.
