It is not difficult.


Several things that should be done so it works correctly:


Connect the bow unit power cord directly to the battery-NOT the boat wiring harness.


Use the proper transducer on the trolling motor for whichever 859 you have.


Proper routing of the transducer cable on the motor--what motor do you have?


Did you get the AS EC QDE adaptor for the 859 so you have the Ethernet cable connection?
