I offer a 10' extension cable I make up to hook your Humminbird/Lowrance units straight to the battery. It is Ancor Safety Duplex Cable - 14/2 gauge Marine Grade wire with an inline fuse holder and a 3 amp fuse. It also has the battery loops on the end to connect to your battery.
The power wire for Humminbird/Lowrance will not reach to the battery in many cases. Most will wire into a dash switch or fuse panel. This will sometimes cause a low voltage issue and create problems with your unit. It is recommend wiring your unit direct to the cranking battery to eliminate the chance for a low voltage issue down the road. This cable will assist you and save you some steps during your installation and possible electrical interference later on.
