Thanks Lyndon - Really appreciate the helpful advice and thanks for reminding me that the NMEA codes strings must often be "input manually" in the GPSmap output setup.
I will verify/work on that tonight and see if the "DSC for 1-sec" reveals a position entry on VHF
then move to the SSB
. Good to know that 1-pair can support up to 3 devices!
I will post a "success" or "fail" reply tonight ... if the latter - may have to return to Yoda on this one?
Another question perhaps?...I also have a Furuno
as a back-up. It was the primary system until the GPSmap 4802 was added with networked Garmin
WX/SAT (GDL 30A) and the radar
module. The Furono was wired into a COMPAQ Presario running the nav planning software
(CAPn), Sailmail (Pactor modem) and WX/Grb service
(which I now run on a laptop). My question is - can both nav systems be hooked up to the same "sensors" simultaneously (I assume they can?)...so I don't have to switch pairs when I have a primary nav system failure (heaven forbid)?
