Link layers from two Data Frames?

I am creating a county-scale map with an inset map data frame of communities in the county, created with data driven pages so it can be scrolled through.


I am also visualizing a variety of data, which the end user will have to toggle on and off to fully explore the map. Unfortunately, when the main county-scale map is interacted with, the layer visibility changes are not made on the community-scale inset map.


Does ArcMap have any functionality to achieve the desired: a link between the two dataframes which toggles the visibility of a layer as it's copy is toggled in another data frame.


I am not afraid to get my Python hands dirty, so if there is a hack I can achieve that can be then distributed to clients and function properly, I'm all ears.


Thank you for your help,
