Ethernet cable
« on: March 29, 2015, 06:34:12 PM »
on the Humminbird web site is mentioned about  AS EC 20E | Networking | 720073-3 that allows the connection of two Ethernet capable units to be connected.

what is not saying: this 2 units will share transducers, way points, routes, video signal ; WHAT is the main purpose of this cable ?

I have an 898 ci si at the console with and want to use another 898 or 998 at the bow with a quadra beam transducer ;
if I connect this two units with an ethernet cable what is happening exactly ? 

I can also use TS3 switch to connect si and quadra beam to the same unit and connect with an ethernet cable  to the 2nd unit at the bow;

I can also use an Ethernet switch  AS ETH 5PXG | Networking | 408450-1  to to link the 2 Humminbird head units, share transducers, but is more expensive ;

can you guys help with any advise and any schemes to connect the units ?

thanks in advance

What data will be shared between two of more units that are Ethernet connected together is determined by the model of the units connected and by the software version.  This is the same whether it is a direct connection (Example: just using an AS-EC-20E cable) or through the 5-Port Ethernet Switch (AS-ETH-5PXG).

An 898 unit connected to another 898 unit (or 998) can share the use of a GPS Receiver, waypoints, water temperature, 2D sonar and Si sonar.

I dont know if a QuadraBeam transducer connected to an 898/998 unit will be able to share its side beam sonar information over the Ethernet system.  It can share its 200/83kHz 2D sonar but Im not sure about the 455kHz side beam sonar.

The 5-Port Ethernet Switch (AS-ETH-5PXG) is used when you have more than two devices that need to be Ethernet connected.
