Welcome to the Marine Electronics Forums presented by Panbo and SeaBits.
So why doesn't anyone make an N2K compatible downrigger?
I know Canon has one that will network with a Hummingbird. That's fine if you want to be a lake fishermen.
Those of us who fish the salt and have real equipment like Furuno or Raymarine would like to use a downrigger that would follow the depth contours too.
Inquiring minds want to know!
