    The boat I just got came with a Hummingbird PTM 120 Platinum ID depth finder and I was getting some odd readings well it turns out the transducer is cracked and Hummingbird doesn't make them anymore. Anyone out there that has a busted depthfinder like this one that wouldn't mind making me a deal on the transducer speak up PLEASE! I really thought I wasnt going to have to funnel money into my boat but I was wrong!
    Thanks Guys

    you can get a nice new depth finder at dicks, or walmart for right around 100.00....Dicks has a colored depth finder for 109.00..thats real cheap, i think im going to get one of those, if i do i will have 2 humminbirds for sale.

    I would check and see what other models use the same one. Most times theres more than one model that uses the same one.

    Definetly ebay. There is a place there you can list exactly what you want, and they'll come to your door, instead of you weeding through several hundred/thousand posts trying to find one.

    Craig, my first boat came with a platinum ID 120 also. It still remains my second favorite unit out of four. I wish I hadn't let it go with the boat. I would definately look on ebay for a transducer. If your unit works for you as well as mine did you will be glad you have it. Vern
