Mixing Simrad GO7 XSR with Furuno VX2
 
Currently have a complete older Furuno VX2 Navnet system, Radar/Chartplotter/Fishfinder with nmea 2000 network.
This boat and system is new to me but works, however I need an easier, updated system to use..........I'm getting old.

My Installer warns me against trying to mix brands........and wants me to go with a complete new system.

Can I simply add a Simrad GO7 XSR with totalscan transducer to the current Furuno system using the nmea 2000 network ...........so I can use both systems as I like?

If you are looking to show the sonar on the Furuno, the answer is no...nor can you share charts or radar.

It is my opinion that the Furuno sonar will run circles around the Totalscan and GO7
