Sounds like when you click the Mouse Roller to lock the screen scrolling. You should be able to hold the pen down a second time to turn this off.

As long as the connection is the same.....maybe. The difference will be the angle of beam from boat to bottom. May not cover the same area...or you could loose zoom etc. something will be different.

SOURCE: How does my Lowrance HDS-5
To connect a LRA 2400 to a Lowrance HDS-5 sounder/chartplotter, you can run an ethernet RJ45 cable from your Radar Processing box to the HDS-5 unit. You will need an adaptor cable for the RJ 45 cable to hook into the HDS-5 head unit. This is part no 000-0127-56.
As for the different transducer pinouts, I am not sure what transducer you have now so I cannot say if there is any kind of converter plug available, however, the HDS-5 units do seem to run best using the transducers that are made for them. Your best option may be to buy the transducer that is made for them, and this will directly connect to the display unit.
Hope that helps!

SOURCE: Can a HDS 5 Lowrance
Hi, well I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but those two are NOT interchangeable sorry. The "Drive Current & Voltage" for the Transducer are not the same at all, in fact i don't even think that the "pin outs" are the same? but cannot remember off hand? Unless specifically indicated by the manufacturer, one cannot usually swap transducers among instruments, if one does/did do so, well indeed the transducer maybe damaged and or the output of the sounder maybe damaged as well?
These manufacturers actually make it so that none of their equipment is interchangeable, as they wish to maximize the profits you see, and if one could just swap things among models etc, then "They" would, in their mind anyway "loose out"
So you will simply have to cut a new hole and mount for you new transducer. make sure you mount it in the manufacturers recommended place, the Bow is fine, although I often recommend that it be central to the craft, but, sometimes this isn't possible for varying reasons.
Sometimes if one must retro-fit a new transducer to an existing but different size etc site, then, it is best to "Fill" the old mounting hole(s) with a suitable material, and then re-drill and re-mount it all again.
