Firmware for 1197 & 1198 connectivity
« on: December 19, 2011, 08:49:36 PM »
I have an 1197 and 1198 connected by ethernet cable.   It is my understanding that they won't communicate unless they are on the same software level.   As a matter of fact, they didn't until I loaded 5.50 on both of them.

I see now that the 1197 has a 5.840 and the 1198 has a 5.700 version.   Will these two communicate?

jimham82,
To my memory; Humminbird has never had a situation where two units had to have the same exact software in them for something to work (unless it was the latest version software which happened to also be the same version level in both units).

I believe that the Ethernet capability was added in version 5.430 in the 1197 and version 5.410 in the 1198 units.  Installing software version 5.500 (which had some Ethernet network fixes in it) would have given both units this capability.  Installing software versions 5.840 and 5.700 should not cause a communications problem between these units.
