Need two map cards. Just like you would need two lakemaster cards, or two navionics cards if you were using those.

Map cards are not shared over the network.

The only thing autochart uses SI imaging for is the side imaging mosaic, if you choose to create this.

Otherwise, depth data for a contour map, is always collected with 200khz sonar. If you have multiple transducers networked to your depthfinder (trolling motor, transom), you can select which transducer you use.

For most all circumstances, you want the depth to be collected at the transom transducer, with a gps receiver positioned close to it. That way you are collecting data anytime your driving the boat around with the big motor.

Now, you asked about 360. I believe your depthfinder saves 360 imaging in the sonar recording, just as it would side imaging. And I also believe autochart displays 360 imaging in the SI mosaic, just as it would side imaging.
However, without actually owning a 360 transducer, I don't have the ability to test it out on my end.

If you make a few small sonar recordings with your depthfinder connected to your 36o transducer, maybe I could have you upload them to a drive, and I could play around with them in autochart.
