humminbird hookup

RAY, I CURRENTLY HAVE A 797 MOUNTED IN DASH WITH TRANSDUCER MOUNTED AT THE TRANSOM AND 997 IN THE FRONT WITH TRANSDUCER ON THE TROLLING MOTOR. THEY ARE NOT HOOKED TOGETHER. I CALLED HUMMINBIRD ABOUT OPTIONS FOR CONNECTING THEM. THE 797 IS NOT COMPATABLE FOR ETHERNET HOOKUP WITH THE 997, BUT I CAN GO THE INTERLINK ROUTE.I HAVE A LOT MORE POINTS ON THE 797 SINCE I CAN MARK THEM WHILE SETTING AT THE WHEEL.I WANTED TO HOOK THEM TOGETHER SO THE POINTS WOULD BE SHARED AND I COULD SEE ALL OF THEM WHILE FISHING. AFTER READING THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE INTERLINK LOOKS LIKE THE ACCURACY OF THE POINTS COULD REALLY BE OFF SINCE IT ONLY USES 1 ANTENNA AND IT WOULD CUT THE 997 CAPACITY WAY DOWN.ANY ADVISE SHOULD I INSTALL OR RETURN. SEE YOU AND CHARLIE IN A FEW WEEKS. THANKS MARK

I have an interlink that I disconnected because it was not a good solution for me. Now if you do not need the points immediately the alternate solution is keeping a SD card in the 997 and move it up to the 797 when you want to move the points. I am not an interlink fan.
