Default Ulterra Transducer install

If any one is interested in how I did this I will then write up how and what I used, it works great and no extra cables hanging from the head of the Ulterra. With the boat on the trailer I cannot extend my trolling motor. to give a good view.

I made mine and used a big hose clamp, they can be purchased ready made on line.

Here is a video I ran across, where I copied what he did was some trial and error for sure but it works great.

Hi Tom,


Honestly I have never seen Helix 12 Side Imaging transducer, however my Helix 9 Side Imaging Transducer (looks nothing like your's)? Could your transducer be just the Down Imaging transducer???


Sweet install non the less.


Thanks

This is a Helix 12 Gen 1 my Helix 12 Gen 3 Mega is on the dash, so this is a little shorter transducer. They do make a mount for the the Mega Gen2&3. Here is the one from Hbird.

I agree. I've had SI on the bow since 2010 and won't be without it. After wrecking a couple cables in the slot of my terrova, I went this route. Gen 1 Helix 12.

^^^^^^
Now that is interesting did you remove the transducer and run the cable from the SI ducer in place of the original cable?
