Universal sonar connection

4 posts in this topic

I had a two year old Minnkota PD with universal sonar hooked up to a 522c. Now, I have a new Minnkota V2. I haven't hooked it up yet, but will my old universal sonar connection work for this new trolling motor?

No. The V2 uses the newer US2 adapters (metal plug). Wider transducer cone and dual frequency.

What Kato said is true. It is a shielded connection on the V2, and the old PD was not. That is why you need a new adapter cable. Make sure it says V2 on the package.

Yep there are a different number of pins in the connector to the US. I mistakely bought the wrong one for my Version 1 trolling motor and had to return it.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
