Default Second Garmin 8000 Series Chartplotter

I currently have a single 8215 Garmin Chartplotter (with optional g2 Vision SD card) and eventually would like to add a second MFD. Do i need to buy one with maps installed (another 8215) or can i save $100 and buy the 8015 and use the map data built into my current 8215 and SD card?

Yes you can order the 8015 part number 010-01018-20 and use it as a second display. It wi share the map data from the network such as the G2 Vision Card.

I couldn't fit a second 15 in screen on my 255cc. Had to put a 8212 next to my 8215. I know that wasn't your question but wanted to let you know about footprint limitations on the dash.

Can waypoints be saved to the network? Each machine has its own waypoints, but it would be great to be able to access all the waypoints from any screen.

2 x 8215

you can use one card for both they have to be connected both via 0183 and 2000 though to do allow everything to work together.

Or im wrong but its what I have to do with my 4208's and my buddy did with both of his 8212's
