    Default How to get power to a 360

    I recently purchased a used Himminbird 360 transducer from a fellow on line. Being under the impression that all 360 transducers where Mega Imaging I failed to ask if it was. The sticker with the serial number on it has been bleached out by the sun so I have no way of knowing if it's mega or not. I haven't mounted it on the boat yet so I guess I'll have to try it out and see. There are two cables coming from the transducer. I know the one with the metal end goes to my Ethernet switch box, and the other is for power. I just spent 15 minutes on the computer with Humminbird and I could never get the tech guy to understand my question. The power cable has a round plastic end with three pins on it and I need to know how do I hook it up to my 12 volt supply in the boat. I would think I need an adapter cable to transition from the round plug end to my wiring in the boat. Any help will be appreciated.
    I may be getting older but I refuse to grow up.

    I was given a used 360 and ran into the same problem, I couldn't find the power cable anywhere so I called Humminbird and they will send you the proper cable for about $42.00. The 360 you have isn't Mega, it hasn't been released yet and it won't be an Ethernet accessory. I've only had mine going a couple of weeks and already love it, takes a little time to interpret what it's showing but once you figure it out it's awesome.

    I figured it would work via Ethernet since it has the cable to attach it to an Ethernet switch box.

    Yes it will work once connected to the network it will show up as a source.

    Humminbird has not released the mega 360 yet. Not until November. A few places have started taking preorders but that’s it.

    That's why I couldn't find an answer to whether it is a Mega or not. Thank you.

    I contacted Humminbird and they sent a power cord to me. Thanks
