Airmar TM260 Introduction, Installation Tips

The new TM260 takes the legendary performance of the B260 to your vessel’s transom. This top-of-the-line broadband transom-mount brings crystal clear imaging to any of today’s fishfinders. The large 200 kHz element and the seven-element 50 kHz array are excellent for bait and game fish separation along with detecting ground fish holding tight to the bottom. The TM260’s high-performance mounting bracket is easy-to-install and has a streamlined shape that delivers high-speed performance

This version of the TM260 is for Furuno sounders and fishfinders that take a 10-pin connector. (All TM260 models are manufactured and shipped as a TM260-MM standard transducer with a 2M cable ending in an Airmar connector, plus an 8M cable that converts from the standard Airmar connector to the manufacturer-specific connector.)
