I need the same info! I have my Garmin hooked up to the autopilot and VHF radio already. It would be great to get true winds!

Re: Combination of Systems

I will be able to comment on this soon. We are replacing all electronics and I am installing an NMEA2000 network backbone and using transducers, sensors, receivers, radar, multifunctional displays, VHF, AIS and autopilot from 8 different vendors.

In theory, it should be no problem as long as all players are truly NMEA2000 compliant. I can let you know how this works out in a month or so.

I have a Lowrance HDS-10 with same brand 3G broadband radar, Sirius sat weather, Standard Horizon VHF/DSC/AIS, ETEC engine parameters, Simrad heading sensor all ethernet, nmea2000, or nmea 0183'd together and it works great. Sonar gives me a few hiccups but that is an analog interface.
