I will be wanting the ais
overlay on the radar
I can state categorically that you can connect the 2150 to the hds 5 and 7 via serial
, as i am doing so right now. I get ais
targets on the chart, and the vhf
data from the hds.
Lowrance told me this isn't possible, and that i have to have nmea2000, too.
However, for Ais targets superimposed over radar
, i can't say. But i sure suspect that lowrance might be wrong.
why do you have to change from 5x to 5m? They have the same functionality and the 5x will work fine. Edit : I see, looks like the 5x doesn't support radar.
