    A cheap option would be to insert an SD memory card into your unit at the console. Your waypoints & such would be saved on it. Then take it out & insert it in the other unit when you are using it. Anything you do there will also be saved to the card. Ferrying the card between units is certainly not an ideal solution, especially if you were to drop the SD card overboard, but would only set you back 10 or 15 bucks while you decide if the network port adapter would be worth the price.
    (You could post a "want to buy" ad in the classified section of the forum & maybe find a used adapter for much less.)

    I just called Garmin because I had a similar question. I want to share data (waypoints) between my old 93 Plus unit and a newly purchased 93 UHD unit. I (we) need the marine networking cable, part # 010-10551-00 to connect the two units. However, as previously stated, this will use the Panoptics port. The tech said to get that box you mentioned or go a cheaper route and use a switch from Netgear...however, it won't be as waterproof as the $250 box. If I ever get Livescope, I'll probably just unplug/unplug cable since I'll be using the Livescope xducer vs TM-mounted xducer.

    I'm a bit of a computer guy, & thought about the idea of using a cheap switch made for home networks, but didn't want to post about it in case there was something unusually special bout the Garmin product making it essential. Good to know & thanks for sharing. The plug/unplug scenario when running 2 transducers would also be way more convenient than ferrying a memory card between units.
    For anyone with the necessary crimpers & cat 5 cable on hand, all you need is the Garmin connectors to make it waterproof. Way cheaper than the overpriced cable from Garmin.
    Easy to do & looks factory.

    Unfortunately, I don't have the tools or materials to do that, but it does look good! Guess I'll spend the $35-40 to get one.

    I too just purchased 2 of the Echomap UHD 93sv units from the GPS Store for the same price BassPro was advertising them for. The Livescope will have to wait a while though. Maybe in 2021. Good to know that a normal network router will work as long as it’s kept dry.
