Default Garmin 840xs won't find GSD26/M265

I have an 840xs networked with an 8212.

On the network are a GCV10, Radar, Gsd26/m265lh.

The network seems to be in order as the card reader and g2 vision maps and ais and radar all seem to work on both machines. The gcv10 works on both as well.

My issue is that the GSD26 does not show up on the 840xs. I am running software 2.7. Any ideas.

Thanks.

840xs don't support GSD26.

I guess that explains it then.

Thanks.

840 and 1040xs are not able to be used with the GSD sounders.

So everyone is clear as to what the OP is experiencing:


When using any Garmin xs series unit networked with any 8000 series units almost all the information can be shared freely between the two systems...except GSD 24 / GSD26 sonar images from the 8000 series back to the xs series...that is not possible as abbor and Brian mentioned.
The information that can be equally shared is all GPS/ mapping/ radar and NMEA.
Plus internal sonar from the xs series...to the 8000 sereis.

That means while using the 8000 unit you can select sonar information from the GSD 24 or GSD 26....or one alternately can select the sonar from the xs unit and whatever transducer is being used there.


..........................................

Examples of configuration on the same boat with this set up using 2 transducers..

The GSD26 and the B275C-LM for deep dropping using the 8000 series.
Having a B75C-H etc for shallow fishing on the xs series...and that information can be shared with the 8000 series.
This way one is utilizing 3 different bands to cover a wide range of conditions etc.

Or even using the xs series with previously installed traditional sonar transducers..such as the B164, B60 etc.
