Question Garmin 742xs Second Screen

I have a 2019 742xs and am wondering if there is any way to push that screen to another monitor. I learned it doesn't have a video out port, but is there anyway to do it through Garmin Network or NMEA 2000? Are both of these only for networking other instruments (engines, VHF, fuel, etc) ? Or do I have to bite the bullet and buy a larger chart plotter?
Thanks for any help

I have a pair of 742xs and they share all information. You do have to remember that some information, like engine info or gas gauge, may be on the nmea 2000 network but most Garmin data (sonar, radar) is shared via either net cable. If I was a guessing man, you could get another Garmin, wouldn't have to be the 742 xs, as a slave to the current 742xs. Off hand, I don't know which options would be good as a slave but I am sure somebody will chime in to help out.

You can use the WiFi connectivity, Active captain and and IPAD or mobile device to display the screen remotely.
