K-Dawg...your x-71 transducer will not be compatible with other depth finders the ducer is but the cable hook-ups wont be...when you buy a new graph its easy to change out just make sure you tie a rope or cord onto the transducer cable and pull it through your boat and hook the new transducer to rope and pull back through..makes it alot easier to change out..also when hooking up rope make sure you tie it good so it doesnt come off 1/2 way through..i usually tie off rope and then tape it so it doesnt come off..good luck!! hope this helps out

Along the same lines, I just went from an Eagle 128 to an Eagle 242, the back plug for the 128 went right in to the 242 and the unit worked right away.. would I need to switch it over eventually (tranducer) or is the exact same.

fishin58>>> if it plugged in the back and the new unit works and reads the depth you should be fine until the transducer goes out then you would have to change out..life expectancy of transducer depends on how much you use it..ur lucky that they were compatible most arent they are always changing plug formations...

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
