[CA11] Element Networking

RE: [CA11] Element Networking
Welcome the Raymarine Forum nateeric,

Unlike Raymarine's MFDs which are designed to communicate with one another via an Ethernet communications network to share virtually all data and resources, Element displays have been designed for use in stand-alone applications. Accordingly, they are designed to share a very limited set of data with other Element displays. If seeking to have more than one display onboard where radar, fishfinder, or cartography will be shared among the displays, then it would be recommended that Axiom/Axiom Pro/Axiom XL MFDs be considered.

Q1a. When networked I see it says they will share waypoints, but will they share sonar data?
A1a. Negative.

Q2a. Will I be able to pull up sonar on one screen and downvision on the other?
A2a. Not unless the second Element display has been interfaced to a transducer as well.

Q2. If it doesn't share sonar data, is there a Y cable available that would allow the sonar data to be sent to both screens?
A2. Negative.

Q3. If the Y cable isn't an option, are there plans for a future software update that would share sonar data between both units?
A3. Negative. As indicated above, the application which you would have described would be that for which the Axiom/Axiom Pro/Axiom XL MFDs have been designed.
