Default Lowrance H20

Can the Lowrance ifinder H20 communicate with a DSC radio?

I have decided to purchase the above unit, but I can't find anywhere were it says it will communicate with a DSC radio. How about? If it can't I don't want it.

Check it out on to be sure but I don't believe so.

I'm thinking about buying the same unit. Not sure about the DCS radio compatibility. Here's a link to the Lowrance product manual download page. I recommend you download the product manual and read
all the manufacturer specs and features just to make sure you get what you want before you purchase. The H2O manual is about halfway down the page.

Here's the H2O product page.

Yes you can. It is NMEA 0183 compliant. You need to purchase the PC data cable accessory for the H20. Then connect the wires to the auxillary wires coming from the radio per the manual.
