*Important Transducer Information for TimeZero integration with FURUNO DFF1-UHFD

We recommend using the Airmar transducer B265 or CM265 with the DFF1-UHD. In this case the transducer configuration will be automatic (TD-ID).

Other “Low High” CHIRP transducers such as the 175LH, 109LH or 509LH may be used, however the accuracy of both ACCU-FISH and Bottom Discrimination modes will not be guaranteed.

In this case, put the transducer settings to “Model Number” (within the Sounder Initial Setup) and select “B265LH”.
