I had a Raymarine
Raymarine Marine Electronics - LifeTag
I like the Lifetag as it does not require manual activation and it integrated with my previous chart plotter to leave a WP at the MOB
position. It is also very small and fits easily in a pocket.
Following a lightning
strike it's been necessary to replace all my electronics
. I decided on a NMEA 2000
backbone with all Garmin
excpet a Simrad
AP and B&G wind
do not have a similar product i'm not sure which way to go. Does anyone know if I can interface the Seatalk
data either onto the backbone or perhaps directly to the GPSMAP 5208.
I've looked at the personal AIS
beacons but mostly they're not automatically activated (unless attached to a life jacket) and seem rather large. Also the VHF DSC
units but they won't give any indication of position. Can anyone offer a solution?
