NMEA 2000, linking graphs & TM

Recommended Posts

So I picked up a Lowrance Elite 9 Ti the other day (Bass Pro Sale) and I want to link it with my Elite 7 up front and also to my Motorguide Xi5 trolling motor. Looking to share waypoints and gain some functionality out of my tm by following waypoints, contours ect. 

I've read that I need the Nmea 2000 kit to accomplish this. I think I also need another tee and another short cable, maybe 2? But I also read I need a gateway kit to be able to connect to the TM? The Nmea kit is under 100 bucks, but i can't seem to find the gateway kit that isn't crazy expensive, and I'm not even sure I need this. 

Any of you have experience with this stuff and can lead me in the right direction before I spend a bunch of money I dont need to spend?

I just mounted a couple new units, one on bow and one on console....I have the two coupled with ethernet, but i am interested in linking the two new(to me) units into my elite 7 with Nmea 2000 network. Hopefully someone here can answer all these questions for the both of us!

Well I pulled the trigger on the Nmea 2000 starter kit, the gateway kit which came with an extra tee, and another drop cable. Hopefully that is all I need. Should be here next week so we'll see. 

Well started laying it all out in the boat and found out I'm short a tee connector. Ordered another. Maybe I'll have it all working by this weekend.
