"Old" C70 to C70 System Question

Hi, I have an "old" system - C70, VHF/DSC, RADAR, Smart Heading Sensor, Raystar GPS all working well. I have an additional C70 that I have, a DSM300 and transducer. I understand C70s are designed for single station applications. My goal is to run the second C70 for Fish Finder purposes (dedicated screen), however I am wondering if a network switch or any other connection between the 2 C70s would share information between the 2 C70s? Or just stick to my plan of installing the second C70 for Fish…See More

"Hi Richard,  The C70 is showing LCD damage and unfortunately Raymarine no longer has any LCD screens for the C-Series Classic MFD's. As such it is not repairable. I would seek an identical replacement on the internet or an upgrade to a…"

Richard Bowders replied to Graeme Little's discussion Installation issues for Dragonfly Model E70085-AUS
"Hi Graeme, I'm not an expert, however reading the installation manual as I am sure you have leaves that question hanging. Depending on your boat that connection is likely an indirect connection, leaving a possible point of failure. That being…"

"hi, the idea is to have the least amount of turbulence around the transducer. While it is not critical, mounting on the less turbulent side will definitely improve performance. The extension cable will not reduce the performance."

NMEA cable

"These cables are available on ww.gps-galore.co.uk and ebay. Bought one myself. The connector is a slightly different shape on the outside but it fits perfectly."
