Default 2 Garmin units linked up together?

I am going to run 2 Garmin 441s GPS units. One at each helm. Does anyone know if there is a way to link them up together? Say i am cruising along from the fly bridge and some rain comes through so i hunker down at the lower helm. If the units were linked up i wouldn't have to re-plot my course at he lower GPS. I wonder if they can be linked up to each other some how. does anyone know if these units are capable of this? ;?

No problem, they are NEMA 2000 and all you have to do is hook them together using the N2K backbone. Very easy to do.
If you have room, I would go with at least the 500 series, Much easier to see.
