This mod is great at least for me and still works great. Are you tired of all that wire? Then cut it and shorten it. I checked with the manufacturer’s and the reason for all that wire is for boats so it will reach were they want to mount there finders and reach there batteries. All I did was cut it and soldier the wires back together and it still works great without all the mess. Hope this helps and works for anyone wanting to do this mod. Also I did this mod on a lowrance elite 5.
