Ok, some of yous guys told me about using the solder-type connector kit from Lowrance to connect a vexilar iceducer. I'm thinking about doing it. Does anyone know the pin assignments of the vexilar plug, or which wires are which on the vex iceducer cables?

Connectors are easy for me, also... I'm not an electronic tech, but I do play one on the television channel that plays in my head all the time.

Cutt, call Gene at the Thornton Gander Mtn. fishing dept. He has made the conversion and can tell you how and why it should be done. Looney.

Found this on the VEX website. The Ice-Ducer will also work on many other bands of sonar. If the unit is 200 kHz and the proper connector is available we can set you up.

checkin it out, now.... only found a the adapter for their alumaducer, which has a different connector that even requires an adaptor to work with their own units. Didn't find an adapter for the iceducer to connect to other brands, but I sent an email to inquire about one.
