Installing lowrance

Hooking up my Lowrance
I recently bought a lowrance x510c but have never installed a new fish finder on my boat. So I guess my question is what kind of cords do I need to buy to run from the power cord coming out of the finder to the battery? There is 4 seperate cords coming out of the power port on the finder 2 of which are blue and red with some sort of clips on them and the other 2 just appear to be cords with tape on the end. I have a few pictures if that would be more helpful. Any help is appreciated!

Re: Installing lowrance

The power cord on my X510C runs into the console. The hot wire goes to a contact on a fused switch. The ground wire goes to a ground buss bar inside the console.

Re: Installing lowrance

It's getting a little age on it and I think I need a new transducer. The first several years that I used it were great. Now I lose bottom intermittently and almost always on hard right turns. Therefore, my conclusion that I need a new xducer.
