Networking Garmin Chartplotters

I am currently trying to setup a Garmin network, but I am struggling to work out how to send waypoints from one to another.

I have a Garmin GPS MAP 3010C Chartplotter and 5008 Chartplotter, and a network expander.
I have connected both plotters to the network expander and they are communicating and happily sharing the on GPS Antenna.

My aim is to enter a set of waypoints to one chartplotter and then have them transferred to the second unit (under racing conditions!)

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not surprised you're struggling with this...since there is no way to transfer them over the network. It would really help if you read your Owner's Manual. If you had, you'd then know that the only way to transfer the waypoints between the units is via SD card.

It is generally a really good idea to RTFM, since a lot of the basic functions and such are covered in the manual.

I'd also highly recommend you read the POST in my signature to help you get the most out of your time on sailnet. Welcome to the asylum.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
