When I first fitted out my rib, I had a Garmin 76cs Handheld mounted on the console which has a relatively small screen along with a 250c fishfinder. The reason for me linking the two was so I could display the numbers bigger on the 250c screen leaving more of the chart visible on the small screen of my 76cs.

As the 178c has a larger screen, I'm not sure I can see the benefit for you unless you want the option of displaying GPS data on the fishfinder screen like I did.
