Another Lowrance networking question

John Mickish


When you have two units networked together, is it possible to read both sonars on one unit, or at least get the depth off of the other unit to show on your screen. I'm thinking this would be a real handy feature for keeping the boat on a break.

I want to say that you can show depth, but not the sonar screen. My units are networked but I have not tried it. I thought that I have read this somewhere but it could have been incorrect.

Maybe it only works when they are connected via the ethernet connection?

Are you talking about using two transducers, like bow and transom, on the same unit at the same time? The only way to do that is with a transducer switch, and it only allows you to use 1 transducer at a time.

Or, are you talking about having 2 sonars, and displaying the depth from sonar #2 on the screen for sonar #1, and vice versa. You should be able to do that if they are networked together, you would go into the Overlay Data screens and pull the depth from the other sonar. It would be a digital display, like 10.4 ft, not a sonar display.

Or, if you had 2 units connected via an ethernet cable, you could show the same sonar display on each unit .... but that would be from only 1 transducer.

I'm talking a trolling motor transducer (bow mounted sonar) and another transducer on the transom (console mounted sonar). Looking at both sonar readings at the same time (split screen) on either screen.

Now what is the difference between networking them or ethernetting them? The Lowrance site isn't real clear on what one does over the other.

What PerchJerker is saying is that with the regular LowranceNET NEMA connection you can overlay the digital depth on the screen. With ethernet you can actually see the sonar screen on the other graph.

With the LowranceNET configuration it wouldn't be split screen but rather the digital depth number displayed right on the main sonar screen which you can place anywhere on the screen just like any networked sensor such as water temp.

You can use either the LowranceNET connection that most people use (red or blue connectors), or if you have the yellow connectors on your graphs, ethernet.

Right. I don't think you can split the screen and show 2 separate sonar displays.

      Went up Tuesday. After scouting for duck hunting locations I fished for ~ 3 hours. Tried a hump off Crow point that had some fish found with LiveScope but no takers on jig and fathead. Trolled the shore south of Linwood Pt with a Salmo hornet, no takers. Trolled a spinner and minnow outside the weeds off the big point. Had a strike and 2 north (25" and 28") in 20 minutes. It was a fun day to be out on that lake, very calm. The pic is Cody watching a loon near the boat. I thought he was going to jump out a few times. A lot of young of the year loons on the lake.

      Those who are in the real estate style business are constantly on the move and without software it is difficult for them to manage this business. My relative is engaged in mediation between the tenant and the supplier, and he cannot imagine effective work without the necessary program, he has such a program on his phone, he ordered it on some server, but now it does not work correctly, he needs a new one. I looked at the site that you advise, I will give the link to this company to him, let him look...

      I think property management is more about communication than real estate as it requires regular interaction with property owners, tenants and staff. To create a base of loyal customers and ensure future growth in a competitive market, I recommend ordering the development of a mobile application fromhttps://djangostars.com/industries/proptech-real-estate/. Because managing a large real estate company that has been on the market for over 20 years can be a headache if you don't have the right software to manage it.

      Buying and selling, renting residential areas include many long-term labor-intensive processes. It is easy to optimize, speed up these operations - it is enough to order the creation of a mobile application for real estate.

      This is the right decision, because such software will allow her to work less and more conveniently. Therefore, find its own developers. In your city, if it is large, you can find such a team, if not, then on the Internet

Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?
