Default lowrance one transducer two fishfinders?

I have a lowrance LMS -522 GPS/Fishfinder on the flybridge. Would like to add a second fishfinder without adding another transducer for the secondary steering station below. What is the best way to do this and what equip do I need? I did contact Lowrance and they have a switch called a SB-10BL but the cable length is only two feet long and I would need at least 15' of cable between the two units. Thanks. Roman

as long at they both have the yellow Enet port on them you can link them together via a cable and share the sonar... you can get up to 50 foot cables...

The transducer should be connected to the HDS, then you will get Broadband Sounder performance from both units when interconnected by Ethernet. Your current transducer can be connected to HDS, extension cables are available if necessary.
