Default SIMRADNSS12EVO2 transducer challenge

I am getting different feedback on connecting an Airmar B265C-LH to a Simrad NSS12 EVO 2.
At the FLL boat show the Simrad staff said I would have no problems, but at the Miami boat show another Simrad rep said I would either need 2 separate displays OR add a Broadband Sounder BSM3 to be able to utilize the full capabilities of the transducer (both chanels).

He also suggested that I could alternatively add a second Simrad NSS EVO and split the transducer cable so the Low frequency goes to one unit and the High frequency goes to the second unit. When I asked about this to the Simrad dealer, they were not sure this would work?
Can anyone provide clarification? My preference would be to buy 2 NSS units instead of 1 NSS and having to add a separate BSM3, but I want to be able to get the full benefits of H/L and Chirp if I go with 2 units and no BSM3.
Where can I buy the splitter for the transducer cable, if this is possible?
Thank you for anyone who can help!

Without Bsm3 you'll need two displays and you will need to buy 2 lowrance pigtails.. No splitter

Or you can get an NSS and a SonarHub.
