I have a few questions on navigation
systems that I'm hoping the gurus on this forum maybe able to help me answer.
I have recently purchased a lagoon 380 catamaran
, and am looking go upgrade the navigation
systems. This is my first boat so I'm learning
as I go and have limited knowledge so please forgive me if I'm ignorant of some of the basics!
She is currently equipped with an integrated I furuno
system that covers plotter, radar
etc. however this system is several years old and I am now looking to upgrade.
1). I am looking go install a raymarine
plotter MFD (a/e series) I am wondering if it would be possible to connect my existing radar
system (which is furuno) to this new MFD using NMEA
connectors and display my furuno
radar output on the raymarine
2). Would it be possible to connect both the plotter and radar to a laptop
at the chart table and display the radar / AIS
information on the laptop
using something like open cpn
3) if the system I have described above in q2 is achievable what types of connectors would I required to do this?
Many thanks in advance for any help you can offer, this is my first boat, so I imagine I will be asking lots of questions as i bumble along.
