Default Networking and upgrade Lowrance

Hello Gil,
My goal is to have two head units networked, a TM275lhw or equivalent, and a 2in1 active imaging transducer. I fish in 50-200' of water for salmon in Puget Sound, 300-500' of water in the ocean for halibut and salmon as well as tuna offshore.

I have a questions that I have asked Lowrance customer service about networking but their answers were vague. I currently have a hds 10 gen1 with a 50/200 skimmer transducer, BR24 radar and a lss-1 transducer and module. All work together fine except the head unit dims on its own occasionally. The upgrade I want to do if possible is to take the gen1 head unit and mount it above my second steering station. At the helm I want an hds carbon 12" connected to a TM275lhw and I would like to have a 2 in 1 active imaging transducer in place of the lss-1. Will the carbon unit work with the gen1, BR24 radar and possibly ethernet network through the existing lss-1 module? If it won't work or work well what do I need to make it work? Sonarhub? Lowrance customer service rep said the gen1 would be able to use the sonar signal from the carbon unit but not share the chart data. Where he was vague is when he said that the carbon unit would go into legacy mode with some features that he down played as not being essential features. Reading about it Lowrance does not show the carbon unit being compatible with the BR24 or any of the gen1 electronics. I would appreciate it if you or someone on this board knows the answers to my questions because I'm trying to plan this out. Thanks

I would not recommend the TM275C- LHW.
I would use the TM185C-HW.

Since I have no hands on use of the older BR24 radar..I cannot comment on that.
