Default furuno 1715 question

I've got a new furuno 1715 and was wondering(cause the manual is a little un clear). can I hook up a sounder to this model. It states something along those lines.......

Yes, and no.

There is a interface cable available from Furuno. You can connect the NMEA0183 output from a sounder and/ or GPS to the NMEA0183 input on the 1715. With these connections, you can display the depth(numeric format only) and/ or various navigational information on the 1715. The display is configurable via the menus on the 1715. As far as I know, you cannot use the 1715 as a secondary (remote) graphical display for a sounder.

BTW, I have a 1715 and it is connected to my sounder and GPS.
