Does anyone know if the newer VX2 navnets are compatible with the older VX1 navnets? I have a VX1 1833C...radar, BBFF and GSP. I'd like to install a second unit in the tower of my boat (31 North Coast Express fisherman). I find its much easier going through inlets and doing other navigation tricks at night while steering from the tower (better visibility...no curtains or stray light). ...but while up there, i dont have a chartplotter or radar. ...woudl love to install a second navnet station up there.

Does anyone know a good furuno dealer in S. Jersey?...i purchase my unit from Consumer marine 6 years ago. But, my boat is at Jersey Cape right now... must be some good dealers in that area

Thanks
Joe

From what I understand you can network the 1 and vx2 units and control everything from either unit but you will not be able to share charts from 1 to the other so you need a chart card for the new vx2 unit as well.

They are 100% compatibile, like was posted earlier, you need a new chart for the new unit. Be sure to get the CMap version, so you can add sirius weather. You will also need a hub and some adapter cables.
