Q: Is an extended warranty available for the subdrive30. How long will they be on sale? Thanks for your quick reply on my first question? Does on the subdrive50 use a pressure sensor or a transducer? Is the transducer new for 2016? Is the subdrive30 manufactured in 2015 & the subdrive50 manufactured in 2016? REA

There is no extended warranty available at this time. The price increase from Franklin have been released for 2017 and the SubDrive's have increased 2% on December 11, 2016 although our website hasn't been updated to reflect that price increase at this time. I believe as they were being released the SubDrive 30 may have been available in 2015 where as the SubDrive 50 came a little later possibly in 2016. The ability to use a transducer is new for the SubDrive.
