Default Extra depth finder at rear of boat

Looking to install a Lowrance 7, gen 2 on the rear of my boat and wondering what cables I actually need to hook up. I only want to see the LSS 1 structure scan and the regular depth finder screen. I have an LSS 1 set up with an extra Ethernet port. Could I just hook up the power cord and the Ethernet cord to it and get what I want? I also have blue end network set up. Would I have to connect that also?

I am not planning on adding a separate transducer. I was hoping I could share that with the Lowrance 10 I have at the dash thru the Ethernet connection.

Not looking to share way-points, GPS, mapping, or anything like that. Only the bottom.

Will this work?

Thanks

Craig

I do the same thing you are wanting to do. You just need to hook up the power cord, run the Ethernet to the LSS1 Box & on your 10 unit go to "Pages, Settings, Sonar, turn on Network Sonar.

Hopefully I explained it correctly.

Thanks Steve,

I didn't want to run a bunch a cables if I didn't need them. (Because many of the companies are really proud of their cables.)

I will give it try.
