I had my current transducer held in place by that on my trolling motor and it should work for any puck but not familar with hummingbird.
I think I would go with the 777c and get a different GPS make. I have heard from some post that people really like the sonar part of the 787 but say the Gps is off target? Just what I have read? I`d stay away from Lowrance sonars for now my X510c was junk the Globalmap 5200 I bought with it seems to work good though for now. I`ve since replaced the 510c with a Vexilar unit.
Humminbird has a transducer made for the trolling motor I believe a puck style one. You may have to purcase this separatly. On Humminbirds web site you can swap out tranducers with them. I`m not sure if the transome transducer can be clamped to the trolling motor or not? Johnson Outdoors, the parent company of Minnkota also owns Humminbird.
