Yes Wayne, what I read was disconnect accessories and it listed interlink, weathersense and maybe a few other things. I didn't see any mention of ethernet but I should have known better.
I just got off the phone with HB Customer Service. $68.50 to program it so it is getting sent off today.
Hopefully I m saved from my stupidity this time. They stated the PC cable I ordered would not work to program an 1197 unit via Humminbird PC so the factory is my only hope.
I did also find a crack in my cable collector and the power pins were possibly receded a bit although the screen did not go blank, everything simply froze at the abort update screen when I selected NO.
