Lowrance question
« on: February 11, 2011, 09:36:38 PM »
I have a HDS 5 on my console and a 520c on the front.  Both have ethernet ports on them.  I wonder if my waypoints on my HDS 5 will trnsfer to the front fish finder if I connect the ethernet ports together.  Anyone tried that before?  DT

I have asked them with no response.  Their FAQs on their web page has nothing on it either.  DT

Not absolutely sure but would think as advanced as those units are that you could do it.

I think the HDS's will only communicate with other HDS's.  This answer is from Aroneybassmaster.

I was wrong. Sorry.

It will share sonar and temps if you hook it up that way but to share gps cordinates you will need to get a
NEMA 2000 network.
