Default Transducer splitterfor second station?

Hi folks.I have a Furuno 600l in my cabin. I want to add a fish finder on my upper helm. Can I buy a splitter for the transducer I am using for the 600l in the cabin and run the upper station's FF off the same transducer?

I would probably add another 600l up top. I sure do not want to drill another hole in the hull if I can help it. Thanks, Scott

Good question. Let me join in rather than starting another thread. .

Will one transducer power two FFs?

If not, can you run two same frequency same manufacturer transducers side by side without loss of image quality or precision?

many thanks

You can buy a switch box to switch one triducer between two FCV-600L's. You can't use any kind of a "Y" cable or splitter to run two sounders off of one transducer at the same time. If you mount two transducers next to each other that operate on the same frequency, you can almost guarantee you will get some interference if you run both sounders at the same time. For information on the switchbox, e-mail me at trme@stargate.net.
