Default furuno navnet questions

question is this, I already have the 4' array and a navnet vx2 10" up in the top box doing radar. 330b gps antenna
now im looking to replace the 7" smaller raymarine units, currently displaying gps on one and fishfinder info on the other.
my buddy is trying to tell me to get a 12" navnet 3d and just split screen the data.
arent i going to have communication issues with the vx2 thats running my radar?
will a vx2 talk to a 3d??
granted i know its old, but so are the raytheons im replacing haha.
I also have a pile of used furuno gear i was given.
i have a 6/10network sounder,
a 7" vx2, and a 7" vx1.
the boat already has a brass thru hull transducer running to the raymarine unit.
if i stay with the older 6/10 sounder and vx2, can i get away with using that transducer?

just trying to decide what to install in the lower dash. looking up in the T top is a pain, but running the radar cable was ALOT simpler up there.
having a large screen would be great while running, display gps full screen and split once on the fishing grounds.
so do i install what i have and wire the birdsnest, or do i peddle these lil screens and buy a big boy?
thank you!

The 3d will not show the radar from the VX2. You'd be better off to put one of your 7" VX2's down below for a 2nd station. Your raymarine ducer will not work on the Furuno units. You'll need a different one. You have some older mismatched parts there. Aside from mounting the 7 down below, your next best bet is a new system with more flexibility

Thanks jim!!
Im actually en rte to pick up another 10" vx2 now!
gave up on the 3d and chirp.

will the hub101 work with 2 vx2s and a 6/10 sounder right?
Just wanted to be sure it was backwards compatible

radar, 4' open array to 10" vx2
gps/chart 10"vx2 connect to 6/10 network sounder and a airmar 600w thru hull ducer(b60??)
so i just need a hub to connect the sounder or can i connect it to a data connection and just network the 2 vx2?
also picked up a new 330b antena easier to wire this to the radar vx2 in the t top box, it will pass data to the lower one correct? or should i just wire to it?

The 101 should work with your equipment. Is your 330B going over a NMEA2000 backbone or 0183?
