Default Network Transducer? FCV-620 and GP-7000

Hello,
We're doing some electronics upgrades, but to save on costs, I'm considering keeping the existing FCV-620 and GP-7000 as backup/secondary units to our otherwise Simrad NSO/NSS architecture.
What I'm thinking is that I could keep the Furuno equipment on 1 network and the Simrad on a separate network. I'd run the Furuno ducer at 1 freq, and the Simrad a separate freq to reduce interference.
What I don't know is, is it possible to network a transducer between the two Furuno systems so they can both display the readings at the same time?
The current transducers are Airmar SS505.
We intend to upgrade at least one if not both down the road.
Any help you all could provide would be greatly appreciated.

The Furuno FCV620 and the Furuno GP-7000 are not able to share full sonar information from a single transducer simultaneously.

Thanks SF (oorah!)
Does the same thing go for the GP-1650DF?
Can it share the transducer with either of the aforementioned?

Same for the GP-1650 unfortunately.

I suspected that may be the case.
Thanks for confirming.
