So I normally just to steer from the back of the boat all season with the kicker. I just made a custom steering link the other day to link main and kicker together it works pretty slick when it's 20 degrees to sit inside and drink coffee and bloody Mary's while waiting for the rods to throttle down. Here is the problem I have an older Raymariane chart plotter that I like with Navionics chip at the wheel and I old Eagle depth sounder up front. At the back of the boat I have Lowerance hds gps / depth sounder unit. I tried to run both sounders on different frequencies the other day and I couldn't get them to work together. I think eagle is 200 and the hds is 50/200. Since the Eagle is really old and I want to replace it anyways, can't I just buy an another head units and link them together with a Ethernet cable? Move my hds combo up front and link a head unit in the back ? If this is possible are there any guys wanting to up grade and would want to sell me a used head unit?
