Default Connect two garmin gps/radar/sonar

I have two Garmin units. 740s from 2013 and a 7607xsv from this season.
I am qurious if I can share info between the two units I have. Both units are radar capable, with one radar dome? I'd like to be able to use both units for radar with one dome. Also I have a transducer through hull about mid ship for the 740s, and I have a transducer for the 7607xsv at the transom of boat. Can the two units share transducer info? The 760xsv came with a nema 2000 cable and tee but can't get the two units to communicate. As the mid ship transducer works better under way and the transom transducer works better at very low or stall speed. Also would be nice when lobstering to be able to put a way point in one unit and for it to share with the other unit. Instead of marking and label both units for each lobster trap location. Any advice is appreciated.

You will need a NMEA200 net work not just the cable between the two. it wont share fish finding just numeric data and waypoints.
