Default Humminbird radar part 2 can you mix/match different brands

Yesterday there was a post about Humminbirds new 2k and 4k radar units coming out on mid march that connect via an ethernet connection to some HB units. Bare with me I am a complete novice that has never had any radar. I have a 1155C H.B. dedicated gps/chartplotter (not a combo unit). My ethernet coonection is an 8 pin - 7 male pins in a small circle and a middle male pin in the center (no jokes on the 8th pin) - 8 total.

Does that mean it would be a plug and play install? Are there other brands of radar domes (garmin, sitex, raymarine, simrad,etc.) that would be compatible with an ethernet capable HB gps/chartplotter that I have?

If you read the compatible units on the second link you posted it doesn't include your 1155. The power point I received about the new radar doesn't list the 1155 either. So, my take would be it isn't compatible. It quite possibly might be in the future with software updates.

I am waiting for mine to come in. We had a 25+ yr old Raytheon on our ride. Should be a nice jump in technology.
