You can connect the XTM 14 20 T to ONIX and shut off the SI and DI transmitters in the unit that the XTM 14 20 T is physically connected to (in the Sonar source Menu)  ...

If the units are connected by Ethernet you will still be able to get SI and DI from the SI xducer that is physically connected to the other ONIX  ...

find a 2D/SI/DI ducer for 2D+DI for the trolling motor and you could use the y cable for 2D on pad reading and a SI/DI transducer on transom for si unit on console

I recently bought 2 used onix 8si units one touch the other nt . They came with just one si transducer and a 2d in hull transducer I know they will share everything from the transom transducer but I like to dropshot so I liked to have a transducer on the trolling motor also.so could I put a 2d transducer on the trolling motor and connect to the front unit without causing problems. Thanks  for the help

Always try Restore Defaults 1st  ...

Then - Disconnect all network cables and test the suspect xducer physically connected to a different head unit  ...

If the issue remains - the xducer needs replacing  ...

Helix Series Units / Right Side of SI stopped working. Any ideas?
« Last post by ad11583c on July 18, 2018, 06:52:35 PM »
I have new Helix 10 SI Mega.  Everything has been working fine and really was liking the Mega Imaging...until Sunday.  I attached a picture of what the screen looks like now.  Left side works great and has good quality images.  Right side is pretty much all black.  I checked the transducer placement to make sure it didnt move, made sure the brackets were tight and checked level.  The wiring looks fine but I can only trace is from the transducer up a few feet until it goes into the boat.  I have multiple units networked so I switch to another unit and it is doing the same thing so it is not the head of the unit.  Any ideas?  System is only 3 months old, are people seeing problems with the transducers?

It is possible the wire connections inside have vibrated loose  ... Most are snap clip type connections  ...

Be mindful to get the seal correct when reassembling the cabinet halves  ...

General Discussion / 1198CX SI screen flickering and changes colors
« Last post by Monks on July 17, 2018, 07:00:55 PM »
Hey

Have determined that my 1198 power connection in the back of my 1198 has an issue. The screen flickers and changes colours. I have two units and have tested both at the helm and bow and the one unit does the same thing on either connection in my boat. Was wondering if anyone has had this issue and a possible fix. When I wiggle the power cable on the back of the unit the problem goes away but only temporarily. Not sure if I should remove the back panel and see if something is lose , or if there is a way to make the connection more snug so that the connecting pins don’t move inside the power port on the back of the unit. Thanks for any help. Monks
