I am new to this forum so please excuse my ignorance to any conventional rules that you use in here.
I have there garmin
4212 chartplotters, two in the main cabin
and one in the flybridge. They are all connected to a garmin radar
and a garmin fishfinder
via a garmin marine
network expander. The chartplotter
on the flybridge is connected to a GPS
17x NMEA 2000
data, Chart data, Radar
, and depth
are available at all screens with no problem.
I added a heading sensor (AIRMAR H2183 NEMA 2000 cable) (certified by Garmin) to one of the chartplotters in the main cabin
via a seperate NMEA 2000
network... "This NMEA
2000 network is not connected to the GPS NMEA
2000 network on the flybridge"
Heading information appears on all three plotters but I lose GPS signal on the two plotters in the main cabin. It seems like there is a conflict of addressing or something of that sort.
Is there anyway that I can resolve this issue?? Hopefully without having to run NEMA 2000 cable from the flybridge to the main cabin.
Would it be helpful if i installed another GPS receiver down in the main cabin with the heading sensor temporarily to resolve addressing issues? (Wild guess)
Any Help is sincerely appreciated.
