Question: Lowrance X125, X100C and X102C Wiring

I currently have a Lowrance X125 on the dash. I'm looking to put the X125 on the bow and replace it with something different. I'm looking at the Lowrance X100c and the Lowrance X102c. Are the benefits worth the difference in cost?

I believe the X102c will also be compatible with my X125 wiring which is what I'm looking for.

Not sure if the X100c is.

Answer:

Both would be compatible with the wiring from the X125, however, we find with the resolution offered by the X102 at 480X480 pixels and the LowranceNet capability it would be a better purchase.

I really appreciate your advice. You sure can help with one more question.


I have read that if you run a bow mount fish locator you should wire it to the main battery that runs the main motor/electronics and not the trolling motor battery due to interference when the trolling motor is running. Is that correct?

Curious because it seems to be a lot running off the main battery. My Alumacraft has two battery hook-ups for the trolling motor and one for the main battery. I want to make sure that I do it correctly the first time and I would rather spend the time fishing!
