Question about GPS Devices
I AM HAVING PROBLEMS REEDING THE BOTTOM WITH MY FURUNO 585 AND 1KW TRANSDUCER,CAN YOU SUGEST ME THE BEST SETTING TO READ FROM 250FT TO 500FT AND FROM 600FT TO 1200FT?

It doesn't sounds right. I have FCV-585 and did exactly what you did, going from P66 to TM260. The performance has improved dramatically and now I can read up to 500 metres. I suspect issues with your GP7000F unit.

This unit has built in sonar, so no DFF1 is required. The 1KW transom mount is in stock here, with the proper Furuno 10 pin connector. That is all you need, the display, the power cord, the GPS antenna, the transducer and THE BOOK! We are a Furuno dealer in the Great Lakes

SOURCE: I have a furuno fcv
you need an MB1100 matching box
has the 10 pin pigtail for your sounder and accepts bare wire input from your ducer
this will also ensure that all power from sonar get to ducer, but it from me if you like 847-746-0100

I understand that you would like to know about changing your Furuno fish finder to the newer FCV 585 unit. The Transducers are interchangeable they both are compatible with one another. However, the main difference in the two units is the size of the units. The FCV-582L is 7.9 inches square and the new FCV-585 is 9.2 inches square. Both of these dimensions are for flush mounting the units.
Here are links to both of the units specs, manuals and etc.
