Default 2 Furuno fish finders 1 transducer

I have a Furuno 10" vx2 Navnet system on my boat and I have added an furuno FCV 620 to the boat. The transducer works for both units but need to find a way to tie both the system together. I know I can't run both fish finders at the same time, I'm looking for some kind of switch that I can use. I am actually looking for some redundancy. I have read some posts here and I do not have a 1k transducer I have a dual frequency 50/200, I believe it is the airmar 525 model. I would like to use the airmar SB260 switch box but after reading here I'm not sure it will work.
Thank you in advance for any help.

The Airmar SB646 will allow sharing of 2 different fish finders with 1 transducer.

This box will work if you want to share a R509LH between a GSD26 and 840XS?

Unfortunately It will not work with a CHIRP transducer.
