Humminbird Installation

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

 

So now that I have my new 1198 and 998 units, I am looking to save some money and attempt to install them myself. I know this is going to be no easy task, so I was hoping my fellow BR members could post any videos/info or direct me to sources that will help this process go as seamless as possible. One question I have is how would you recommend running the wires from the bow to the console? wire snake? 
 

Thanks!

Just cut a hole in the bottom of your boat on each end and run the wires then silicone them up......lol have a good bilge pump, you should never have a problem

What type of boat do you have? My Tracker had a power and ground wire up front already from the factory when I installed my 998.

I have a 2004 Stratos 295 pro xl. That would be really nice to have!

There should be a power block up front that you can connect to. You'll have to take your front panel off and check it out.

just be careful patching into the boats power like that as it might cause interference if you dont go directly to the battery. saying that I just installed mine up front by patching into the boats power block up front just to see how bad the interference is going to be.
