Transducer Selection Guide

A comprehensive Buyers Guide to help you find the right transducer



We have created this matrix to make finding transducers easier. You should easily be able to scroll down to see the technology you want, the power, mounting type, and brand with a link right to the correct transducer. As the leader in transducer sales we have done a number of things to make buying them easier. First are helpful pages like this and the buyers guides we offer. Next, is the "filters" you can use in our transducers section to narrow the offerings right down to the one you want. And finally, we have concentrated on offering MixNMatch versions of popular transducers.

What is MixNMatch (MNM)? MNM is the newest way to offer transducers. Airmar manufacturers transducers for most manufacturers, like Garmin. When they are made for a manufacturer the transducer will have a proprietary plug on it making it only useful for that brand. If you buy the same transducer with a MNM cable it can work with any sonar system with the right cable. So we have all of Airmar's popular transducers on our in a MNM version, these are labeled "Mix N Match". On the product page for these transducers you can select the free adapter cable to make it work with your sonar. There is no better way to buy an Airmar transducer. Plus if you ever have issues there is no middle man, you will be working with the manufacturer directly.
