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: If your network includes a legacy Humminbird®
model, download the latest software update from your account at
humminbird.com. Legacy models include 858c, 898c SI, 998c SI, 958c,
and 1100 Series™ units.
• 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 will determine which Humminbird®
connection cables you will need to purchase to connect the control
heads to the network (see the Ethernet Cable Information table).

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. It is
important to set up your network to use the correct sources.
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, the control head
will detect the other transducer and use it to start Normal mode
automatically.
• 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 steps 1 until all of 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.

Powering On
3. Configuring the Ethernet Network
Set up your Humminbird® Ethernet Network using the following instructions,
including these topics:
1. Network Setup Overview
2. Customize the Unit Name
3. Select Data Sources (transducer, temperature, GPS receiver)
for each control head
4. Understand the Shared and Local Menu Settings
5. Share Navigation Data
Configuration Overview
Connected units can detect the other control heads and sources on the
network. When the units are connected for the first time, the sources
(transducer, temperature, and GPS) default to Local operation.
Local (default): The source reports data only 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. Alarms and Navigation also operate
differently when they are shared. Review each source section to
understand how a shared source will affect your Fishing System.

Change the GPS Source
To change the GPS source after the network has been configured, open the
Network Source Setup dialog box to change the GPS sources at any time.
Network settings are saved even after the unit is powered off.
If the control head cannot detect the set GPS receiver, the control head will
display an error message so that you can reset the GPS source as follows:
• If the shared GPS receiver is not detected, follow the on-screen
instructions to switch to the GPS connected to the control head (Local).
• If the local GPS receiver is not detected, follow the on-screen
instructions to switch to another GPS receiver in the network. If there
is more than one GPS receiver in the network, the Network Source
Setup dialog box will display, and you can select a different GPS source.
See Select a GPS Source for details.
Finding the GPS Source
700 Series™
If the control head cannot detect the shared GPS Receiver set in the network, follow the
on-screen instructions to change the GPS source. In the above illustration, the control
head is switching to the locally-connected GPS receiver. Press the LEFT Cursor key to
select No, or press the RIGHT Cursor key to select Yes.

Share Navigation Data
To synchronize navigation, navigation alarms, and review your saved
waypoints, routes, and tracks on the network, turn on Share Navigation Data
on each control head. You can then observe the following:
• When navigation is started on one control head, navigation will also
start on the other control head.
• When a waypoint is marked on one control head, the waypoint will
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.
• Navigation Alarms will sound or display on the networked control
heads. To turn off a shared alarm, press the EXIT key on either control
head.
• When Man Overboard (MOB) Navigation is started on one control
head, the MOB waypoint and navigation data will be displayed on both
control heads. See Share Man Overboard (MOB) Navigation.
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.
NOTE: To manage your saved waypoints, routes, and tracks, see the Waypoint
Management section of your Humminbird® operations manual or contact our Customer
Resource Center for the Waypoint Management Guide at 1-800-633-1468 or visit our
Web site at humminbird.com.

Share Man Overboard (MOB) Navigation
As soon as you know that you have a man overboard (MOB), you should
activate MOB navigation to maximize the chances for a successful rescue.
MOB navigation allows you to create an MOB waypoint to locate the point at
which your man went overboard and the relation of the boat to that point.
When Share Navigation Data is turned on, the Man Overboard (MOB)
navigation will also be shared between control heads. If MOB navigation is
started on one control head, the MOB navigation data will also be displayed on
the other control head.
Start Man Overboard (MOB) Shared Navigation
1. Preparation: Turn on the Share Navigation Data menu option on each
control head. See Share Navigation Data for more information.
2. Activate MOB Navigation: Press and hold the GOTO key for more than
1.5 seconds to activate the Man Overboard (MOB) function.
When MOB is activated, a MOB waypoint is created at the boat's
current position, regardless of whether the chart cursor is active or
not. The MOB waypoint has a large, distinctive icon. Once MOB is
activated, any current navigation will be cancelled and the current
route will be discarded without notification. MOB navigation will
begin immediately, and the MOB View will show the following:
• The view will switch to the Chart View, and the elapsed time since
MOB was activated will be displayed.
• A line will be drawn from the boat's current position to the MOB
waypoint, and the MOB waypoint will be targeted.
• The latitude/longitude position of the MOB waypoint will be
displayed in an additional information box.

Troubleshooting
Before contacting the Humminbird® Customer Resource Center, 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.
33
Troubleshooting
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.

Downriggers are the key to catching fish you otherwise couldn’t even touch. And
now Humminbird’s CannonLink™ Downrigger Controller makes operation of up
to six Cannon® Mag 20 DT or Mag 20 DT/HS downriggers incredibly easy. Using
the controls on your Fishing System, deploy or retrieve downriggers, hold a
specific distance off the bottom, cycle downriggers between two depths, and
adjust the Positive Ion Control. Even see temperature and water clarity at depth
and speed at the ball right on-screen when using the Cannon® Speed-n-Temp.
You’ll never be shorthanded again, just make adjustments from the helm, while
your mate rigs the lines and brings in the fish!
With the new InterLink™ Network Connection, you can now share GPS position,
waypoints, routes and your current track between two Humminbird® Fishing
Systems in real time. Mark a waypoint at the console, and it’s instantly available
on the second unit. No matter where you’re at on the boat, you’ll have access to
your critical fishing and navigation information. Plus, daisy chain InterLink™ with
other System Modules and you’ll have a network that lets you share digital data
around the boat. It’s a simply, clearly, better networking solution!
