You just connect those items to one of the displays & the dsab network enables the info to be displayed on both  Wink

Thanks for the comment.

There is no network.
There are two D10As.
There is one GpsAntenna.
There is one RemoteCompass.
There is one TemperatureSensor.
THAT'S IT !!!!

THE QUESTION: "Is there a correct wire diagram for connecting two D10As to a single GpsAntenna and single RemoteCompass and single TemperatureSensor -please advise. "

I understand that but you need to connect the 2 x units via a 2 twisted wire cable.  It may not be obvious to you however if you want to share the info between the screens then that is what has to happen - rev J install manual page 5-2 has some info written above Efis 2. Also you connect both units pins 4 & 5 (dsab bus) together with the twisted wire to get the relevant info shared.
Connect the GPS, Manetometer & OAT etc to the primary screen  Wink
HTH.

Appreciate your guidance.

To be clear, for this discussion and for anyone else that may be interested, by connecting at the back of each D10A the #4 pins together and the #5 pins together with a shielded twisted pair wire, that both D10As will be capable of displaying the same information.

This assumes that there are numerous items that have been left out such as power to the 2nd D10A unit, grounding the 2nd D10A unit; anything else.

The input was in WRT your post #2, power & grounds are a given anyway.  The information as described on page 5-2 is what you get on the 2nd D10A, no more or less. Page 5-4 gives more info on this.
You could setup the #2 unit so that it can work the same as #1 if #1 ‘fails’  Wink
Pm me if you wish & I’ll give you more info  Smiley
