Hello dear people,
would any of you be able to tell me if a gps
receiver ( the make is evermore SA 320 , not that it matters) can be connected or used parallel ? Meaning , can i use a receiver for 2 chartplotters, in my case 2 raymarine
You see , my raystar 120 went broke ( yes, the type or problemchild with which raymarine
riped off their customers) and as the raystar 125 is ever so expensive i tought of using a NMEA
type receiver. As you well know , the raystar communicates via seatalk
, making it possible to use one gps
receiver for multiple plotters.
I've installed the evermore gps ands connected it on the NMEA
input of one plotter , so far so good , but also hoping seatalk
(the plotters remain connected through seatalk of course) would translate the date to the other plotter.
No can do , the second plotter keeps showing ' no fix ' .
So i immagine since the date is entering one plotter via the NMEA input , the other plotter is not getting any information.
Could it be possible to connect the gps receiver on both plotters - the NMEA input that is - so infact the 2 plotters would also be connected parallel with their NMEA input ?
In other words , could that damage the gps receiver or the plotters in any way.
I know , if in doubt , try it out ,......but this equipment
is a bit to expensive to fool around with isn't it ?
Thanks for any suggestion.
