O.k. I have 3 furuno unit gps/sonar combos. The are networked together. If i input numbers into my main machine downstairs will the numbers not show up on my other two maching or do I have to physically put them onto those machines also. I inputted my numbers on my main maching climbed up onto the 2nd station only to find that i had no numbers up their so was fishing blind sorta?????

I believe that there is a transfer function in the menu of those units. It has been awhile since I have played with a Navnet 1, but they definitely have it in Navnet VX2, and the units are very similar. You just have to be careful, because if you have different waypoints/routes in each unit, you will overwrite the units you are transferring to. it is best to enter all your waypoints/routes using one unit, then transfer to the other units.
