LOWRANCE HOOK

 Hi can anyone tell me withr the airmar p66 transducer will work on a hook 9 as im getting conflictilng advise. My standard transducer is playing up, drops out loads of sqiggley lines on screen depth goes to zero, I tried another spare one i had came in box when i upgraded from 7" after some scumbag decided to pinch it. anyway the new one worged for 2 trips then doing the same. I contacted Lowrance tech department and was told the p66t would work but when I contacted shop to see if they had one was told it wouldn't work only on hdi model. guy in shop also told me he had been selling lowrance for 15 years and never replaced transducer unless it had been damaged, he advised me to carry out upgrade., which I have done and it seems better, works out of water anyway. Just wondering if it plays up again would i be better changing to p66 if it will work and if resolution is any better. Cheers for any advise

I have hook 9 triple shot. it came on the boat I bought, but i'm not super impressed with its performance. its generally very slow to comprehend things, and not overly user friendly.

 Have you tryed the free upgrade from the lowrance site. Since doing it yesterday it seems a lot faster on reloading the charts when you change up or down in size.

Hook 7

I bought a Hook 7 for my 4.4m Renegade thinking a cheaper unit was the way to go. Couldn't get rid of it quick enough...processor speed is way too slow for me. Ended up buying a Carbon 7, which is much much better
