I'm trying to figure out if it is possible and what cables would be needed to run transom transducer to console unit and bow unit. I have a lcx 110c at helm and lms 337c at the bow. currently to the bow is ran off ducer on the front trolling motor. Another question is can waypoints and other data be shared between the two units....i.e. if i mark a spot at the helm does it mark and save it as well on the bow? Both units have their own gps moduler...which i may convert to just one if i can "network" the two together. Any assistance or explanation would be appreciated.

I put mine in 2006
I put 3 GPS antenna for back up purposes 2 are still good. It's a Backbone system.
The new power cords also power the network, older ones need a separate power cord to the network.

so can i power my units with the new backbone even though mine use blue instead of red connections? Also can i select off the unit which ducer i want to use?

There is a Red to Blue connection and also a Blue to Red so it does no matter if you have a Blue Network or a Red or Black network.

They share transducers via an Ethernet cable. The network will allow you to create waypoints on both units simultaneously as long as both units are turned on when the waypoint is being recorded. They will not share icons or background maps such as Navionics.

Does a single ethernet cable carry gps and ducer info and the power? Also can I tie in a 2nd ducer from the bow so if I want i can view it and if I can....can I select the transom ducer on console unit and bow ducer on the bow unit? Thanks for the help guys

I don't think you'll be able to use the ethernet. I have a 111 and it does NOT have the yellow ethernet connector. Only units with that connector can be linked via the ethernet cable.
