Hobie is introducing a new transducer plate that will accept the Lowrance TotalScan skimmer transducer! The Totalscan would normally be too big to fit in the standard Hobie transducer well, but is now mountable with this option.
The TotalScan transducer is an all in one transducer that features down scan imaging, StructureScan, CHIRP Sonar and Broadband. Fish with the features of a big boat!
Here is a picture of the new transducer plate with the TotalScan transducer installed:
This new transducer plate works the same way as the current plug in Hobie Transducer plate. Just install the transducer and it lives on your kayak. You will not need this if you are using a non TotalScan skimmer transducer. This mount leaves the Totalscan transducer open while providing some protection for it.
Here's what the transducer plate will look like when sold:
We are planning on stocking these as soon as they come out! Once again Hobie is taking the steps to ensure that their products are on the cutting edge of fishing technology!
Edit: Totalscan Transducer Plates are now sold here
