    Can 2 transducers be mounted next to each other if one is a Lowrance Hook 3 to be relocated in the bow? The other is a Helix 5 to mounted on dash . Should i just put a Transducer on bow mount motor ? thanks

    If you are able to run the units at different frequencies, you should not get any interference/cross talk. Example one at 50/83 hz and one at 200 hz. But you may not like the performance/detail of the one at the lower frequency (wider beam coverage).
    Better to have one on the transom and one on the trolling motor. At least the length of your boat separates the cone beams. But once you get deeper than 16ft, they can cross talk.

    I have 3 side by side with no issues. One is a fishhawk one runs my sidescan and one is just 50hz Sonar
