Default Configure Lowrance BB Radar to Globalmap

Jim,
Last year I ordered Lowrance Globalmap 9200C and 7200C with broadband sounder with M260. No radar.
Now I am ready for radar!
What are my options with the new BB Radar?
1. without adding a new display
2. adding 1 more HDS display

Can you list advantages and how it connects and displays?

Thanks
Nick

You need a HDS display for the Broadband Radar. GlobalMap can only use the LRA1800HD and LRA2400HD models (and the old obsolete analog radars)

Here is what I would have done: Buy a HDS with sounder, connect to one of the GlobalMaps using Ethernet. Use the new HDS screen as plotter/radar screen and run the HDS broadband sounder at the GlobalMap. Sell the other GlobalMap and the broadband sounder.

To get gps data from LGC-3000 to HDS for redundancy you also need to connect the HDS to the NMEA 2000 netork.

Abbor's advice sounds good to me. Its all correct. You will definitely need a HDS Display for the Broadband Radar to work.

Thanks Abbor!
I really like the bigger M260 Sounder.
Questions.
What is the connection for M260 (removing Broadband sounder) to HDS-7?

Can I share sonor and radar function to the Globalmaps 9200C and 7200C?

Tks nick

Just unplug the M260 from the Broadband Sounder and plug it into the HDS.

You can share sonar from a HDS to your Globalmaps, but not radar.
