More powerfull transducer for Axiom9
Hi

I have started to venture into deeper waters with my Axiom 9 with RV100 transducer. Up to 50m the chirp sonar works great. I have found anything over 60-70m I start losing a lot of definition in the bottom and by the time I hit 150m the bottom return becomes so weak, when in auto range mode, the unit starts changing the range to find a bottom reading again and a depth reading is no longer displayed at all, let alone possible fish returns. I have looked at the option of a second transducer such as the 600w Airmar transom 50/200 but believe the interface with a y cable to run both, i lose the chirp sonar channel from the rv100. Is this correct and if so is there some sort of switch where I can switch between the 2 transducers depending on the depth of water im in? Even better would be having a split screen of both transducers in action together. Upgrading to an external sounder module is out of the question as cost becomes prohibitive and I might as well ditch the axiom for an axiom pro. Any help is greatly appreciated. If it matters I’m located in Australia out of Cairns.
