Interlinking 1198C to 987C
« on: August 11, 2012, 11:29:24 PM »
Just purchased a new 1198C SI. I am trying to get it to interlink with my older 987C but my 1198C keeps saying the software is not compatible without an upgrade to the 987C. I have v4.77 on my 987C which is the last update Humminbird shows on it's website. I emailed Humminbird support and was told the 2 could not be etherneted together but could be interlinked. Please tell me there is a secret hidden update for my 987C to make it jive with my new 1198C or what I may need to try next.

Thanks,
Chad Wise

cwisedude, Had the same thing this week with My 1198 and 1155, HB CS rep stated the 1198 would have to be taken back to a older update for the units to work together! what! NO WAY! :o

Time for HB to write some code and get it posted.

I don’t know that there is an old enough software for the 1198c Si units and/or a new enough software for the 987c Si units to work over the InterLink module very well.

There isn't. Emailed HB and they said there was not. I think I am going to just run my AS SYSLINK cable and run both units off of the 1198C GPS Puck and then use my SD card to keep my waypoints updated on both until/or if HB updates the 987C.

I realize that this is off-subject from the original post but...

Roddy the last software update for the 155c was version 4.950.  If you can load an older 4.XXX version of software into your 1198c Si unit it should work.  That is, if your 1198c Si unit can run this older software without causing some other problem – we sometimes update software for new replacement components that are used.  Loading a software version older than what your 1198c Si unit was produced with could cause it to fail due to this.  So I would not recommend doing so.  No one forgot anything in the 1198 software.  There was a fundamental change in how some things operate within the units that had to be made for the NMEA 2000 and Ethernet communications to work.  Unfortunately this has ended up causing problems for InterLinked units that cannot run the same level of software in both units.

Greg, The HB web page for the 1155c (close outs) states that the 1155c is Ethernet compatible and I asked that question when I ordered the1155c and was told that the 1198 and 1155 were compatible with each other by HB Customer Service/Sales rep!

Greg, How about getting the HB Code Write/Rewrite people to do a code FIX so these units are compatible as advertised on the by HB web sales and HB customer Service/Sales Personal.

Marketing is one thing but it has to be backed with positive PERFORMANCE at all levels!

That's wright I'm not a happy camper over this Humminbird mess!

cwisedude, Sorry about the rant, But the constant echoing of bad/miss informed info by Humminbird rep's has gotten to be expensive and time consuming.

Roddy,
I looked at the information on the Humminbird web page but did not see anything about Ethernet at all.  Regardless, the units may have been able to be Ethernet connected at one time if the software versions were compatible.  I have a message into someone to see if there is anything that we can do for your legacy 1155c unit to help make this work or not.

What was the original software version on your 1198c Si unit when you bought it, or do you know this?  pm me the serial number and I can get this checked on.  It may (or may not) be possible to downgrade the software in your 1198c Si unit so that it can correctly communicate with your 1155c unit.

Greg, Sorry about the rant. :-[

The 1155cx was built per order in July 2012 with all updates installed.

Got the 1198 just before update 6.180 came out, but held off on updateing till the FIX came out.

Check out: Hummihbird Home Page>Products>Closeouts>1155c>Overvieu>Network Modules>Interlink

Check out: Download Product Manual>pg# 62. Setup Tab, Advanced User Mode.
                                                      >pg# 65. Accessory test.
                                                      >pg# 88. GPS Override.
                                                      >pg# 105. IP Address Setup.
                                                      >pg# 114. 1100 Series Chartploter Accessories.

Roddy,
Are you talking about the InterLink module or the Ethernet connection?
These are two different types of connections or "links' for these units.
I see information about the InterLink but not the Ethernet.  The manual only mentions the Ethernet for the IP Address Setup menu.

Still, I have a message into someone here and I will let you know if we can get this sorted out for you.

Greg, It does not matter, none of I-link or E-mail net works.
