Lowrance locators

So here's my question for you guys, I have a Lowrance elite 3x all season bundle that I use in the summer on the front of the boat and for ice fishing in the winter since it came with both transducers, a bag and battery.  I also have a hook 7 that has GPS and the insight HD lake chip that is mounted in the boat.  I like the Elite 3x for summer fishing but now after using it for ice fishing I find myself wanting the GPS and Lake chip that I have on the Hook 7.  So can I buy an adapter so I can use the Elite 3x ice transducer (it's the black plug) on the Hook 7?  Also the hook 7 has a flasher mode but is any better then the regular sonar screen?  I also have a Garmin Dakota 20 handheld GPS that I could use but I don't have a lake chip for it, would the Lowrance insight Pro V16 chip work in the Garmin unit?

 

Thanks

This the adapter your looking for? https://www.amazon.com/Lowrance-000-10052-001-Uniplug-Transducer-Adapter/dp/B004B7SWQC

 

Lowrance sells a bunch of adapters not sure what plug is on the elite 3's I know they are different than all the other elites or hooks.

 

I've used several lowrance units on the ice. currently use a elite 7ti. I've never cared for the layout of a regular flasher, so I can't really say how the flasher screen compares to another flasher. I strictly use graph mode and love it. I think I like using it more than my marcum LX-9 if that says anything. I would doubt you could swap cards from brand to brand.

An update I tried my Lowrance Insight HD V15 East chip in my Garmin Dakota and it doesn't read it, so my next plan is to buy the adapter for the Hook 7 and try that for ice fishing.  Question though is can you fit it in the soft bag that comes with the Lowrance ice units or is it too big?

You would have to chop up the plastic base or just make a new base to be able to fit the hook7 in the soft case

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
