Default Lowrance Lcx-113c HD dual display

Hello My name is Curtis. We fish mostly in the saltwater areas. We have an older Lowrance LCX-113c Hd I have been round and round with lowrance trying to get these two units to share sonar. I can get the GPS to share on both, but that's it. They told me to buy a NEP-2 expansion port. I did, no change. I purchased a starter kit with some Ts and 120ohm Terminations. I hooked up the displays exact to the manual. H.E.L.P

When hooked up this way you should see a menu option for sonar sharing.
If it doesn't work then forget about it. There is no service from lowrance with units as old as the lcx 113.
Exactly right. When Ethernet-linked, "Network Sonar" is automatic with these older units and there is no way to disable sonar sharing without disconnecting the Ethernet cable. HDS units have the ability to enable/disable Network Sonar.

Chimes of Freedom are you saying that the menu will add sonar sharing option once the Ethernet cable is plugged in. Will this option be added to forward and aft display. Thank you for you reply

Yes, as soon as your units recognize an Ethernet connection, Network Sonar is automatically enabled. All you will see is an option for your sonar source in the sonar menu.
