Currently running a 7212 with a B260....follow up question here....

If adding a 840 xs, can it use the B260 for chirping by network connection?

I assumed the 840 would need its own Chirp ducer like a GT23?

If I ran both stand alone, they would be in conflict ? Are ducers always firing when the MFD is on?

If I ran the 7212 for chart and radar and then used the 840 for sonar only with a GT23, is this an impractical scenario?

Im not looking to get into a major project....thoughts?

Thank you.
