Hello I have purchased a LCX-26C HD. I did not originally plan on this but have come into the money to put a radar array onboard. I also want to put on temp, fluid level and fuel flow meters. I would like an extra screen to act as a slave to the LCX-26. I would like to put non critical or if I need radar to put the sonar, plotter, or radar to the other screen. Does any one know if this is possible with out blowing another $1800 on another full unit?

Donnie;

Lowrance (reportedly) has a radar add-on for at least some of their units. I, however, have been unable to find any information on this unit. It is *not* listed on the Lowrance website (that I could find, anyway.)

You might call Lowrance directly (expect a bit of on-hold time) or perhaps a local Lowrance vendor to find out what's available for your unit for how much. I do know you can get fuel flow metering for the Lowrance NMEA2000 units.

I have installed the Global Map 7500 together with the new Radar (1500)
I cant come up with any info yet because the ice still laying.
One thing that i liked with it is that you can split the screen and than decide how big part of the screen you want radar or map.

WOW Petrov I think I have found my new up grade. That is a great looking RIB. This is horrible I havenít even received my boat and all ready looking to go bigger and better. The problem is that I have a 1 man console and donít have the room for a 10Ē screen and Iím hopping I can get a slave to the main unit for under $400.

I will have to call Lowrance by the look of things I sent them an e-mail on Friday and still no response.

Thanks Donnie, it was weeks of installation of the engines and electronics etc to get it perfect.
