Is it possible to view livescope with two 93sv' at the same time.

Right now I'm running a 93sv echo-map plus at the cockpit with the Garmin LVS32 mounted on a pole near the drivers console. Would like to have a screen at the front of the boat too. I bought an extra ram mount and Garmin cradle. My buddy I fish with also has a 93sv and usually fishes the bow of the boat. Thought he could bring along his unit to view up front.

If possible, what cables would be required?

The good news is you own a garmin and their tech support is second to none. call and talk to a real person who speaks english.

Disclaimer! My understanding is that you need a network box in the link below. you have the GLS10 box connected to this with two LS network cables going (one to each cradle). the below is listed as an accessory to the 93sv plus.

The GMS 10 network port expander allows you to connect multiple chartplotters and sensors over the Garmin Marine Network. With this robust 100 MB switch, you can connect multiple multi-functional displays (MFDs) and sensors to the marine network and gain the benefit of Ethernet-like data transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than some competitive systems.

Just Plug-and-Play
The GMS 10 and the Garmin Marine Network are completely plug-and-play, which means all peripherals are automatically detected and readily accessible once they’re connected to the network. Likewise, you easily can expand your system using the same standard data cable to plug additional units and displays into the GMS 10 network ports.

Seal Your Connections
The rugged GMS 10 is specifically designed to withstand the corrosive marine environment. All connections are totally water resistant, and sealed covers keep harmful moisture away from unused data ports.

Your info is correct. Although some have gotten away with just a standard $15 network router from Walmart/Best Buy, joined with Cat 5 cable. It's not water proof, but who cares, just buy another one for $15.... I bought the UHD SI/DownScan box which has 2 network ports and networked my two 93SV's together. If i did it again, I'd go with the cheapo $15 box. I never use SI or DS since I only use LVS for all my search needs. Oh well, lesson learned. Tim

Get yourself a 12inch tablet and connect thru active captain
you can control the livescope with it or the main unit at the same time.
anywhere on the boat.

Thanks for thinking "outside the box" and saving money.

Really, on a 93sv, are you sure? This is new news to me. Do you have experience with this on a 93sv?

I have first hand experience this does not work. I bought one 93SV early on expecting this function to duplicate the screen. But after weeks of research and talking to Garmin, I realized it was not possible. I had to buy a network box and another 93SV to have one on each end of the boat. So I was surprised somebody sounded so confident that it was possible. I still don’t think things have changed since last year. It’s not possible unless somebody has direct experience, not speculation. Tim

It works great for me no glare on my tablet,
may have to have a different unit to link it thru
active captain. I am using the GPS 8612 unit
may not work with the 93 or ultra series

The 93's have had a significant price reduction since the UHD came out. I got a Cabela's sale flyer today that showed them at $600. I paid about $850 for mine a year ago.
