I’m going to assume your referencing HELIX  ...

You will need 2 dongle cables - one for each HELIX head unit  ... :

You will need 2 Ethernet cables - one for each HELIX head unit  ... Ethernet cables come in various lengths …:

You will need the AS ETH 5XPG Ethernet switch  ...:

You will need to decide if you want the Minn Kota to communicate with the Humminbird units for GPS functions such as Follow the Contour and trolling motor control from the Humminbird head unit. These functions require i-Pilot Link model Minn Kota. (Non-Link model Minn Kota can still connect the built-in transducer to the Humminbird. But no GPS function control from the Humminbird head unit)  ...

Minn Kota iLink models come with a 30ft Ethernet extension cable for connecting the Minn Kota iLink to the AS ETH 5XPG for GPS communication to the Humminbird head units  ...

Minn Kota MDI and/or MSI models come with a 14 pin transducer cable (8ft I think)  ... so you will need an adapter cable to connect Minn Kota MDI transducer to a helix transducer port. Minn Kota MKR-MI-1 is 3ft long  ...:

NMEA is not necessary unless you are adding NMEA devices to the Network like radar  ...
