I don't think so. Transducer is only for sonar display, you should see a blank sonar screen without a transducer connected. Your GPS antenna provides location for the map display and you should have view selections that enable a full screen map view.

On a related note, if you have the units Ethernet-linked, you can share one 2D sonar ducer between both units via the "Network Sonar" option.
