Hey, I hope somebody can help!

Bought a boat that had a Lowrance x50 DS installed but the screen won't work. Tried to reset, according to manual, but nothing.

My question:

If I buy a Lowrance X-4, or x-4 pro, will I still be able to use the transducer that is installed on the boat, originally for the x50-ds? I don't want to have to re-install the transducer if at all possible. I am really looking for inexpensive fish/depthfinder.

Thanks, if anybody has done this please reply!

If there's confirmed power to the unit, but no screen, you likely have larger problems. I'd call Lowrance directly and go over the problem with them. They'll also be able to answer the transducer question for you. Google Lowrance for the contact #. They've been helpful to me in the past.

The transducer must be the same frequency as the new unit, if you buy a higher powered unit than the current unit you must be sure that the transducer is compatable.
Transducer are not all the same.
