I just purchased the smaller version of your unit (the 1724C) and am now trying to interface in my AIS
. I am interested in your comment that it does so no problems as I am having trouble figuring out what pins to use and data format etc. I have used a lot of Furuno on big boats and they have a great reputation but the local support in Singapore
by the agent is sadly lacking when it comes to yachts. The parallel importers are much better but they can not afford as much stock or support issues so I really have no where to turn.
I know to use the seven pin connector but not sure if 232 or 485 format or baud rates. I think I can figure out the pin outs from the manual but have had trouble with the rest. Can you advise what you used?
