Default Furuno NavNet

I have a 1724C unit with radar and GPS/plotter capabilities. I also have a Garmin 2200C GPS/Plotter with FF. I am not sure which transducer I have. What do I need to allow the Furuno unit to be the Radar and FF and the Garmin the plotter. The plotter on the Furuno will be the back up. By re-arranging the electronics this way will allow me to maximize their uses.

If your Garmin combo unit has the FF, your Furuno unit will not be able to display it. You would need to buy a Furuno BlackBox Sounder, and youmay be able to use the same transducer if there is an adapter that will convert from the Garmin connector to the Furuno. If not, and they both work on the same 200k freq, you could buy a Maretron connector for Furuno, and install it on the Garmin transducer cable.
