Buying a new boat and want to put in 2 locators.  

I want to know of a locator that can communicate with each other.  One at the wheel and one up front.

so if I mark a spot at the bow it will also mark that spot on the unit at the wheel.

Just reading descriptions of units I have not seen any mention of this but I have seen YouTube videos in the past mentioning it

every manufacturer has this capability....when you look at humminbird website just go to "Features" filter and select "Networking"  

I think you need to purchase a little router as well provided by same manufacturer of locator.  

Lowrance will units like the carbon series will describe network capabilities and will also state it has an ethernet port. I dont believe the NMEA or wireless capabilities support the feature you are describing and are for other benefits.
