lowrance hds ethernet cable Vs N2k

What's the benefit of the Lawrence HDS Ethernet cable to link two HDS units together rather than N2k?

Can you have the Lowrance HDS units linked by Ethernet, and still use N2k

Ethernet is used for distributing high-volume data such as radar and sonar imaging. N2K allows you to share 'structured' low-volume info like speed, depth, position, instruments etc
