Default Viewing Network Sonar on Lowrance HDS 7M/9M

I have an NSS8 with a SonarHub, B60, LSS2, and TM260. If I add a Lowrance HDS7M or 9M (chartplotter only), will I be able to view the sonar through the network?

Thanks Abbor.

2 questions.

1)Suppose I am looking at the 200kHz beam of the B60 on both the NSS8 and the HDS9M. Will I be able to use one color/sensitivity/zoom/palette on one of the screens and a completely different setting on the other?

2)I have no available ethernet ports. I see the HDS9M has two. Does it act as a router/switch? Meaning, can I disconnect my radar from my SonarHub, reconnect the radar to the HDS9M, connect the HDS9M to the newly available port on my SonarHub and still have access to everything on both the NSS and HDS screens?

1) Frequency, range and Ping are common for all displays showing the same sounder. Everything else can be different.

2) Yes, NSS9 can act as an Ethernet hub
