New Solix 12 install on Ranger 621FS
« on: June 19, 2018, 06:34:58 PM »
      I am purchasing a new 2019 Ranger 621FS Cup Edition to save some money. The boat comes rigged with a Lowrance 12 Carbon at the console and a Lowrance 9 Carbon at the bow. My plan is have them shipped loose not installed. I have been using Humminbird for 10 years. I want to have 2 Solix units installed. One mounted at the console and one at the bow using bass boat technology mounts.

  I will have 360 Imaging Transmon mounted next to a Minn Kota Talon  12BT debating if I will future mount a 360 Imaging on the Ulterra 112 using the mount system from Cumberland Crappie. So want to be somewhat future proof.

  My questions are this.
1.)What are all the components that will be needed to install the bird equipment? 
2.)Can I use a Solix 12 Chirp GPS  # 410390-1 at the bow for 360 and 2d down?
3.)Can # 2 Above be networked to use SI and mega?
4.) Or Should I buy 2 each Solix 12 Chirp Mega SI GPS #410400-1 one for bow one for console?
5.)Since I am installing 2 Minn Kota Talon 12 units on transom do I need any special cables to control the deploy from fishfinders?
6.)since I will have top of line Lowrance Carbons will installing them have any negative effects with the birds? I was originally going to have a Solix 12 and Lowrance 12  Carbon on BBT mount at the console.
7.) Will either model Solix 12 work with Minn kota Ulterra US2 transducer? If so what cable or adaptor?
8.) Will 360 imaging work with either Solix 12 model above.
9.) Do I need a 2d transducer thru the hull?
10.) Will I need ab,y cable?
11.) To get the 350 Mercury Verado to talk to the birds via nema any special cables or modules needed?
12.) Will I need anything special to connect to i-pilot link Ulterra?
13.) Will the Solix 12 unit(s) control the Ulterra; ie deployment, stow, and follow contours, spot lock?
Thanks for any input. Boat is costing me 110k and I want the electronics to work day one.
