Linking 3 units
« on: February 19, 2017, 04:19:56 PM »
I have a 899 and 859 link together via eithernet  now. I am wanting to add a 3rd unit mainly for gps navigation  at the console so I can have 2 full screens instead of running split screen on 1 unit.  So I would be able to see more detail on each unit.
My thoughts where to add another 859  head unit and run it off  the 899  transducer via eithernet.
can I link all 3 units together this way? for saving my way points? What would be needed to do this?

You will need a 5 port Ethernet switch .... and will connect all units to it.   http://www.humminbird.com/Products/AS-ETH-5PXG/

Best way to back up waypoint is to export nav data to a 35Gb or less SD card and bring them into Humminbird PC
