The unit comes with everything to install it and use all the functions it has for a "Standard" installation world-wide.
The included transducer does all the functions.
A high performance fiberglass bass boat with a stepped transom is NOT a "Standard" application.
A pontoon boat is not a "Standard" one either.
If you do not have a "Standard" application, then there are accessories available to customize it to your craft.
Some like to use another mount system with the included gimbal mount such as the RAM mount.
Some like to use an aftermarket transducer mount for a more sturdy setup.
Some have to use an additional transducer for on-plane depth readings if the performance level and hull style are not suitable for a transom mounted transducer.
Some have to use a different Side Imaging transducer due to the hull style and rigging.
If you need direct assistance to set it up properly for your craft, email me a picture of your boat so I can see the right side of the transom and motor mount at a level that shows all of the transom including any step/s it may have.

You will also need a RAM mount, The unit is too big to just mount on any surface near the console.
The RAM model is RAM-D-111U
Is the motor on a jackplate?

Some prefer to use a thru-hull SI transducer under the transom extension. That takes a 1"+ hole through the transom for mounting. You can exchange the supplied transducer through Humminbird's exchange program by calling them.
The thru-hull transducer model is XPTH 9 HDSI 180 T and you will still need the shoot-thru 2D transducer for on-plane depth readings.
You are waaaayyyyy away from a "Standard" application.
