Can you combine the two together, so have a E series on the upper helm (E80) and a C series at the lower helm (C120)?

Not if you want them to interface. You can only link E series together. So if you have an E and C in different places then you will need two chart chips. Have two E's linked then you only need one chip.

[/ QUOTE ]No, you can not combine them in the sense of networking them, but there is nothing to stop you having an E upper and C lower using seatalk or NMEA to share GPS info, but the radar can only be hooked up permenantly to one of the displays, same for sonar. You'll also need TWO navionics chart cardridges, one for the E and another for the C. So in a word it's not really practical. A pair of networked C widescreens seems a nice option and seems to make the E series redundant.

Thanks for this, we have two Navionics charts as the Prestige had two C series and as far as I know they were not linked. If they were linked and I would have got away with only one chart - better not mention this to swmbo /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif There was a single areal I I have no idea if this linked into on (master) and then onto the other (slave) or whether it would have had a splitter and fed both.

You only need one GPS receiver antenna, as one plotter can get position fix from the other using NMEA, but you will need TWO chart cards, as chart info can NOT be shared between C-Series and E-Series.

Loads of waffle and technobabble and I think I would get away with it /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif- for a short time, /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif then it would not be the chestnuts roasting on the fire /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif
