Can anyone here help me with networking my lowrance elite7 hdi unit with another lowrance unit of some kind?
What I would like to do is basically have a remote monitor of the sonar page of the elite7, don't care about any of the other pages.
I have my elite7 mounted permanently on the bow of the boat,but would like to be able to see what is going on while at the control console while underway, and also for another fisherman at the stern to also see what is on the elite 7 sonar page screen while we are trolling.
Has anyone here ever done something like this?
I already have a bottomline tournament 320 mounted on the console,but the transducer interferes with the elite7 so the bottonline unit will have to go.
If this can be accomplished what other lowrance unit would be compatible,looking to buy a used lesser expensive unit, head only.
I have read a lot of other forum discussion on the networking topic but none seem to address what I would like to do.
Have a e-mail in to lowrance customer service but so far no reply.
I'm a bird guy, but I don't think you can network that unit.... Just share external gps data, and waypoint sharing via nmea2000, that came right from their site. If I'm wrong, I apologize... Good luck with their customer service, lol
Just put it on a ram mount and turn it back and forth to whoever wants to see it!
I don't know much about bottom line, but if both units are using the same frequency, ie. 83/200, 50/200, 455/800, then that is most likely causing the interference.... Try different frequencies with each unit and see if that helps.
