Oh mighty horde I am betwixt a rock and a hard place...
Been through this with Furuno
for a couple weeks now back and forth by email
and no help yet...
My Chart Plotter/Radar (Furuno 1724c/nt) does NOT output NMEA
on either of its two ports
I have confirmed that the wiring
is correct on all devices. Everything else works fine - it receives all NMEA
What this is preventing me from doing it outputing waypoint data like XTE, RTE to my autopilot
so I can only use my AP to steer a heading versus to a Waypoint and compensate for things like XTE.
Anyone have this model or familiar with it? Furuno
assures me it is supposed to output NMEA on the two ports
but I have scoured the literature and it doesnt explicitly state that it does.
it only states that it outputs NMEA through its NETWORK port which doesnt help me since I am based totally on 4wire NMEA system...
