Networked MFD?

Simple question... If I network two MFD's (Raymarine A series) and one of them has full c-map charts. Do I need to purchase c-map chip for the second display or will it link to the other?

Thanks, I did find where you set one to master and the other to slave and the charts should share.

Yes. This should work. We had a PC witch charts and shared to a plotter. We had Ray software on the PC. Ethernet cable.
