Units can only share information on sonar from the lowest featured model and only like frequencies.  Examples below of what will not share: 

  • Side Imaging sonar will not share Side Imaging sonar/views with a non-side imaging unit.  Example: 1198c SI with a 858c.  It will only share standard 2D sonar.
  • Down Imaging sonar from a Side Imaging unit will not share with a Down Imaging unit.  Example:  1198c SI with a 788ci HD DI.  It will NOT even  share standard 2D sonar.
  • Down Imaging sonar from a Down Imaging unit will not share with a standard sonar unit:  Example:  788ci HD DI with a 788ci HD.  It will NOT even  share standard 2D sonar.
  • Down Imaging sonar from a Down Imaging unit will not share with a Side Imaging unit:  Example:  788ci HD DI with a 1198c SI.  It will NOT even share standard 2D sonar. 

What will share: 

  • Side Imaging and Down Imaging sonar from a Side Imaging unit will share Side Imaging and Down Imaging sonar with another Side Imaging unit.  Example:  1198c SI with a 998c SI, an 898c SI or a 798ci SI.
  • Down Imaging sonar from a Down Imaging unit will share Down Imaging sonar with another Down Imaging unit.  Example:  788ci HD DI will share with another 788ci HD DI.
