2 Humminbird units ran by 1 gps module?
« on: December 21, 2011, 09:57:00 PM »
I have a 937c up on front deck and and a 1198c at console. Does anybody know if there is a way to run both units off of one gps module? i already have a module mounted by console for 1198c and really don't want to mount another up front unless i just have to. Any info would be greatly appreciated. :)

There certainly is Josh and you have a few options on how you can do this:
1.  Buy the AS-SysLink cable.  The GPS Receiver plugs into this cable and the other two ends of the cable plug into the COM port on each unit.
2.  You can buy two of the AS-HHGPS cables, some connecting wire and use the NMEA Output from the 1198 to the 937c unit.

Of course if you already have the second GPS Receiver mounting it up front would be the cheapest and easiest way to get GPS on your 937c unit.  It would also allow that unit to mark more accurate waypoints as well.
