My SeaSport came with a Garmin 4008 which includes: Black box, radar, GPS and Autopilot. Everything works great. On the rear steering station is a older cheap Hummingbird fish finder. I found a Garmin 5212 touch screen in decent shape with all the cables and cover.
My thought is to put the 5212 up front (everything will connect and all accessories will work with the 5212). Run a networking cable and power cable
to the rear station and mount the 4008 back there. The installation manual says that this is possible to network the units. The 4000 series and 5000 series are compatible.
Maybe use the Hummingbird for ice fishing.
That way when shrimping and trolling I will have everything all back there within reach at the rear pilot station. There is a roof in back to protect the unit from the rain.
Anyone see any issues in doing this?
