side by side transducer mount ?
Will 2 transducers work if mounted side by side?
I have an existing lowrance (not sure of freq) mounted on the boat on each side - I added the dual freq transducer from my Garmin next to the lowrance on port side....
Will they both work or will I get interference?
Spacing is minimal. This is on a searunner and the tabs for mounting the ducers are not very big.
There's a pretty good chance that there will be interference.

I am very pleased with the detail and user friendliness of my Garmin 546S compared to the 3 Lowrance units on the boat (they are old and not comparitive models so it is not really a fair comparison).
I bought a 546S last winter too and if you upgrade to a Airmar tm260 transducer you wont need the other two. The detail that I am getting through mine is awesome, no to mention that it will track bottom at 35mph. Just my .02 though.
I did get interference on the two that are mounted side by side. The garmin works so much better than the older lowrance I will probably just remove the lowrance at some point.
Maybe next year I will upgrade to the 260T - how much better is the detail that you pick up off the bottom in 200 foot?
