  • Dual Garmin chartplotter/sonar configuration/functionality

    We have a new Axopar 28C on order. Unfortunately, they don't offer many configuration options on electronics, Garmin only, so I took the best I could get:

    - Dual Garmin 1222 Touch chartplotters (a stripped down 12" version, no sonar, no maps)
    - Garmin GSD25+ separate standalone sonar module
    - Garmin GT51+ transom mount transducer
    - Garmin GMR Fantom 18 radar
    - Garmin VHF 115i
    - Garmin Fusion BB300R stereo
    - Mercury VesselView 5" (Simrad based)
    - Mercury ActiveTrim (no keypad)

    I'm totally new to this, never had or used dual displays before, much less have a network on board.
    Neither 1222 plotter has anything for charts, other than very basic worldwide basemap.

    - If I buy a single G3 Vision card, plug into display #1 SD slot, download(?), can I then display those G3 charts on either plotter? I assume they only allow you to load charts into 1 device, not 2.

    - Assuming all of these devices are either on NMEA2000 or the Garmin Network, once I have a map card, should I be able to configure and display whatever I need on either plotter (charts, sonar, stereo, VHF, radar, engine data, trim, future autopilot)?

    Yes, buy one card and it will populate both units if they are connected with an ethernet cable. Here is the chart catalog - https://www.boemarine.com/cartograph...g2-vision.html

    To your second question, you need an ethernet cable for this too, but once you have it you can view anything on any screen anytime.
