is there a best practice network hook up between a A95 multi display and an Mac laptop?? I want to use the iNavgps, to see boat info and radar.
I have the HS5 switch, listening to my XM and radar and A95

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum gweier,

It is not possible to do as you have suggested. Ethernet communications between a computer and Raymarine network of a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs is limited to Raymarine Voyage Planner software ... and that interface is limited to synchronization of waypoint/route data. You may want to look at interfacing your computer to your MFD's NMEA 0183 or SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 communications interface. The Brookhouse iMux is commonly used for bridging NMEA 0183 sources to Mac computers. These interfaces will not support sharing of cartography, radar imagery, fishfinder imagery, marine weather, satellite radio, or Fusion radio control.
