Figure out the transducer number and google it. I am sure you will find one somewhere. I found one online that way about a month ago and it was $40 cheaper than humminbird was. It wasbrand new in the package.

found this: http://www.unbeatablesale.com/cw28668.html?srccode=cii_11138&cpncode=18-44191555-2

I have a tranducer but the end has been cut off so it's just bare wires on the end that plugs in to the fishfinder.

So I don't know if it works or if replacing it will make my Matrix67 work correctly.

Is their anybody willing to let me plug it up with their tranducer to test it??

I can bring the unit to you and power it off a hand held battery so you would have to break down yoursetup..I just need to test it before dumping some unnecessary cash into this thing, if it turns out not to work correctly.

anybody know how to get the GPS to work on this unit...says it's not installed but know the unit is setup for it.

Do I just need to replace the antenna? (AS-GR16 GPS Antenna Receiver)

Update:

Just pulled the antenna apart and found massive corosion inside, will need another for sure..anybody have one..willing to sell?

Don't understand why they would design an antenna with the electronics in the head, think they would put it in the water tight body of the fish finder and keep it a little safer than that..but oh'well. Best deal I have found so far: http://www.anchorexpress.com/HUMMINBIRD-AS-GR16-12-GPS-Antenna-p/406340-1.htm
