Connecting Garmin 3000 to 4000 Series MFDs

I am still trying to piece together a "do-it-all-at-the-right-price" network. The latest incarnation would place a garmin 3206 at the helm and a 4008 (or 4208) at the nav station.

My question for the techies: what sort of functionality will I get out of the helm station (3206). It seems that 3206 is network compatible, but not N2K compatible. Does that mean I can run my N2k items through the nav station 4000 series and then forward that data to the helm via the network cable? Or, will I lose function at the helm? Any help in understanding how these interfaces work would be greatly appreciated.

-M

Garmins ability to transfer data from nmea to other plotters over it's garmin network is very variable and depends on software versions. I found for example that wind data for some reason didn't transfer. It's aquestion for garmin techs
