Garmin 93sv Plus Chirp

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if you can data share the new Garmin 93sv Plus Chirp with the old Garmin 73sv Chirp? I currently have the old Garmin 73SV at my dash and I would like to install the new Garmin 93SV Plus Chirp at my dash and move the older 93sv chirp to the bow and mount at the trolling motor. Does anyone know if you can data share these two units to share waypoints? Also, could I take my Lakevu chip out of my 73sv and put it in the new 93sv plus to run the map at the dash and data share it to the bow on the 73sv?

Plus units use the data cable (ethernet port).  The chirp unit uses the blue/brown wires.  Blue/Brown on the plus unit will connect to NMEA 0183 devices only.

So I take it as a no?

It may be possible to transfer by saving your waypoints to a SD card and then swapping it to the other unit but for real time updates, the plus unit will not communicate with the non plus unit.

Yeah, garmin did the old switcharoo…  For the original echomap chirp, you can connect to the striker and other units via blue and brown cables.  For the plus, the blue/brown cables are not for sharing waypoints and such... Question is, can the echomap chirp share waypoints via its network port.  I sold my echomap chirp after I upgraded to the two plus units, so I cannot test this.

 

So what you need to do is connect the two units via the PANOPTIXS port, which is just a network/ethernet port.  Just connect the units via "CROSSOVER" cable.  Garmin told me that the units are smart enough to connect via regular nework cable, non crossover cable which your probable have laying around.   You can buy or make them, if you make them you will need these https://www.amazon.com/Garmin-Marine-network-connector-2-pack/dp/B000MANU6O

 

I have boxes of cat5e... I am currently testing a network hub that I may sell for much less than what garmin, hummingbird, etc sell with their proprietary ports.  Last night I got it powered up and I am currently sourcing some cases that I can waterproof to make this all copasetic.  This would allow people to network their garmin units as well as livescope on all units.

Success!  We can network our Garmin devices without paying $250 plus on their Network hub.  My unit are working together.  

 

I just need to finish the water proof container.  The unit it pulls, .6 amps so I going to protect it with 1amp fuses to test.  

 

@12poundbass I just try to overcome obstacles... A glutton for punishment, lol!  

 

Now, I do not have access to a chirp unit to test anymore.  Anyone local with one, we can test it all out..

 

Well, the chirp panoptix port is only for panoptix, no network in capabilities.
