Tapping into Fish Finder Display

Hello Once Again

We have a fish finder, but it only hooks up to the outside cockpit. On the inside in the pilot house we have our nav station with radar, tri data, and everything else hooked to the autopilot. However, the transducer for the fish finder doesn't hook up to our display in the pilot house.

Is there any way to run something from the outside fish finder to make it display on our pilot house screen?

I would provide specs on our equipment but I am in school right now.

Regards

If the fishfinder has NMEA output yes, otherwise no.

The Raymarine A70 series plotters support this as well as Sirius weather. These are baby sized platters not the C, D, or E series plotters. It can also take NMEA 2000 instrument data and you can also add A/D converters for legacy gauges too. They don't support radar however.

Nolex 77 is correct you need digital output so it can be converted to the display. It's also helpful to be able to control the fish finder from that display too.
