Introduction
1. Installing an Ethernet Connection
If your Humminbird control head has a built-in Ethernet connector, the unit can
be connected to the Ethernet network. When you connect the units together,
data is shared between the two units.
Before you start, please note that the Ethernet network installation has the
following requirements:
• Update Software: Your model may require a software update to enable
Ethernet. Log in to your account at humminbird.com to download the
latest software update. For assistance, contact Customer Service.
• Install the control heads and sources (GPS, transducers, temp/speed
accessories, etc.) for your Fishing System. See the equipment installation
guides for details.
• Purchase Ethernet Connection Cables (separate purchase required):
Your network configuration and Ethernet port shape will determine
which Humminbird connection cables you will need to purchase to
connect the control heads to the network.
Installation
2
Purchase Ethernet Cables and Equipment
1. Review the illustrations on the following pages. Find your control
head models and locate the Ethernet port on each control head.
The shape of the Ethernet port determines the cable(s) you need to
purchase, as shown in the following table. The Ethernet port will be
round or shaped like an hourglass.

Connect the Control Heads
1. Confirm that the control heads are powered off.
2. Review the illustrations on the preceding pages. Find your control
head models and locate the Ethernet port on each control head.
3. Connect the Ethernet cable(s) together and route them to each control
head. Connect the Ethernet cable(s) to each Ethernet port, noting the
following:
• The connectors are keyed to prevent incorrect installation, so be
careful not to force the connectors into the port.
• On round cable connectors, hand-tighten the screw nut to secure
the connection.
• If the control head has a round Ethernet port, the Ethernet cable
can be connected directly to the control head. The 700 Series HD,
800 Series HD, and 900 Series HD units use a Cable Collector.
Consult your control head installation guide for details.
CAUTION! Do NOT mount the cables where the connectors could be submerged in
water or flooded. If cables are installed in a splash-prone area, it may be helpful to apply
dielectric grease to the inside of the connectors to prevent corrosion. Dielectric grease
can be purchased separately from a general hardware or automotive store.

2. Powering On
When you have installed an Ethernet network, the power on process is the
same as powering on a single control head, however, your transducer
connections will determine how the control head starts normal operation.
If there is a transducer connected to only one of the control heads,
and you intend to share the transducer on the network, power on
the control head with the connected transducer first.
Power On
1. Press the
POWER/LIGHT key.
Operation Mode: If a transducer is attached to the control head,
Normal mode (for on-the-water use) will start automatically. This is
the default operation for powering on the control head, but the
network setup will vary with how you’ve set up the connections as
follows:
• If a transducer is not attached to the control head, but there is
another transducer connected to the network, press the MENU
key when the Title screen is displayed. Select Normal from the
Start-up Menu. (This step is only required for first-time setup or
after defaults have been restored on the unit.)
• If a transducer is not attached to the control head, but there is
more than one transducer connected to the network, follow the
on-screen instructions to choose a transducer source. See Select
a Sonar Source for more information.
NOTE: Also, see your control head operations manual for more information about
the Start-Up Options Menu.
2. Repeat step 1 until all the control heads in the network are powered
on. The Fishing System will detect the other control heads and
sources in the network.
NOTE: If you have an InterLink connected to the network, the Ethernet will disable the
InterLink because both network systems cannot be used at the same time.

Configuring the Network
Configuration Overview
When the Humminbird network is installed, each control head automatically
selects a primary source (transducer, temperature, and GPS). Typically, a
control head selects the equipment connected to it as its primary source, but
you can choose any compatible source on the network.
For example, if you have more than one GPS receiver installed on the network,
whether internal or external, you can select one GPS Receiver to be the shared
source for all control heads on the network.
Local (default): The source reports data only to one control head,
typically to the connected control head.
Shared: The source is set up to report data to both control heads in the
network so that they share the same data.
It is important to note that when a source is shared on the network,
the source’s data will be synchronized between units. The Menu
System and View Rotation will change to match the shared source’s
capabilities. Review each source section to understand how a
shared source will affect your Fishing System.

also be displayed on the other control head. If the waypoint is saved, it
will be saved to the local control head where it was marked.
• Routes: When waypoints are viewed on both control heads, you can
build a route from either control head using the shared waypoints. The
route is saved to the control head where it was created.
NOTE: When the units are powered off, the waypoint data is saved only on its local
control head where it was originally marked. Routes and tracks are not shared on the
network.
NOTE: Although the navigation data is viewable, it is not copied on every control
head. In other words, a new route will be saved to the control head where the
route was initiated. If you edit navigation data, the data will be saved back to its
local control head.
Share Waypoints
1. Main Menu: Press the MENU key twice. Select the Network tab.
2. Select Share Waypoints. Press the RIGHT Cursor key to select On. (On,
Off; Default = Off).
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 on each control head so that each control head
is sharing (or broadcasting) its waypoint data on the network.
NOTE: The remaining navigation menu options are controlled locally. The Shared and
Local menu options may change to accommodate new product features.

Troubleshooting
Before contacting Humminbird Customer Service, please read the following
section. Taking the time to review these troubleshooting guidelines may allow
you to solve a performance problem yourself, and therefore avoid sending your
unit back for repair.
Fishing System Doesn’t Power Up
If your Fishing System doesn’t power up, use the installation guide that is
included with your Fishing System to confirm specific details, making sure that:
• the power cable is properly connected to the Fishing System control
head,
• the power cable is wired correctly, with red to positive battery terminal
and black to negative terminal or ground,
• the fuse is operational, and
• the battery voltage of the power connector is at least 10 Volts.
Correct any known problems, including removing corrosion from the battery
terminals or wiring, or actually replacing the battery if necessary.

Fishing System Defaults to Simulator with a Transducer Attached
A connected and functioning transducer will cause the newly-started Fishing
System to go into Normal operating mode automatically. If, when you power
up the Fishing System, it goes into Simulator mode automatically, even though
a transducer is already connected, this means that the control head is not
detecting the transducer. Perform the following troubleshooting tasks:
• Using the Installation Guide that also comes with your Fishing System,
check to make sure that the transducer cable is securely connected to
the Fishing System. Reconnect if necessary, and power up the Fishing
System again to see if this fixes the problem.
• Replace the non-functioning transducer with a known good transducer
if available and power up the control head again.
• Check the transducer cable. Replace the transducer if the cable is
damaged or corroded.
