Lets see if I can explain what I'm asking correctly. Some of the terms I use may not be right, but hopefully you understand what I mean........

I have my point 1 hooked to my console unit (HDS Live) through the NMEA network. I have an ethernet cable running to my front graphs (2 HDS Live). It seems my front graphs are not picking up the point 1 (only want it there for the heading), it doesn't show up at all on my units when I go into the settings. Do I need to run a NMEA cable up there too? Or will it pick up through the ethernet?

Thanks for your help

Yes, you need a nmea cable running to the bow. Add a T connector and a drop cable, almost just as cheap to buy another starter kit, than it is to piece it. Unless you can find some used nmea parts for sale.

If you want to see the point1 on both bow graphs, you need 2 T’s and 2 drop cables.
