The steps to do this is quite extensive and I believe are best understood straight from the manual.
Here are links to the fisfinder 160 and 120 if you do not have them.

Hi,

If I may inquire, how many pins on the transducer and on the fishfinder.

Hope to hear from you and pls post back the requested information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    The reason I asked was because the transducer intended for a 160 should fit the 120. To my knowledge the only difference would be that the capacity of the transducer of the 160 would be overly rated for the output of the 120.


    • A Garmin Fishfinder 120 uses a temperature-sensing 200-kHz transducer, which transmits at 800 watts (peak-to-peak) and 100 watts (RMS) to a maximum depth of 600 feet.

    • A Garmin Fishfinder 160 uses a temperature-sensing 200-kHz transducer, which transmits at 3200 watts (peak-to-peak) and 400 watts (RMS) to a maximum depth of 900 feet.
    Not unless there is a difference in the pin or the pinouts.

Garmin 551s sonar stopped working, no bottom definition or ability to see fish GPS charts and speed all work It shows 3 step image repeats top of the screen / water surface has the transducer packed


Check you transducer cable route and connections. Look for kinks, punctures, & tears in cable. Visually check the transducer for damage. #2 check the units operation on a friends boat with the same set or research a local marine repair shop to check ops. Best of luck on the problem.

Is it posible to conect garmin 420s gpsmap to st40 deth transducer


No. St series from Raymarine are made for digital depth only, not fish finding and do not talk nmea. The only way to get that Garmin of yours to see depth would be to go from an ST40 nmea out to that garmin nmea in. Or purchase a nmea 0183 smart sensor and hook it to the garmin.

Can I get an inboard transducer for my Garmon 160C fish finder?


Yes you can. You would need Garmin part #: 010-10224-00. You can order this part off the Garmin website if you do a search for 160 and look under the accessories.

Where do all the wiring go to on the garmin 400c


The rest of the wires are for interfacing (letting the unit 'talk') with other devices such as radar or GPS. These wires/colors are pretty standard and defined by NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association). You need wiring diagrams for the devices to hook them up. For fun, see where 'nema' takes you with Google.

Garmin Fishfinder 160 will not display bottom contours and does not display depth continuously.


Change your setting from saltwater to fresh water even if you fish in sea water,your transducer is a 00/200KHZ and not a 50/200KHZ.
Good luck
