How to connect two separate nema 2k backbones to a pair of Garmin
I have a sailboat with interconnected Garmin
4208 chartplotters. One below at the nav station and one at the helm
. I have a Simrad autopilot
which uses the Simnet 2k backbone and it is connected to the nav 4208 chartplotter
I have Raymarine
instruments which are connected to the Nav station 4208 via the 0183 connection.
I am removing the Raymarine
instrument s and installing Garmin gwind –GND10 & depth
with Garmin GMI-20 & GMX20 Indicators which run on a nema 2k backbone. I would like to feed the wind
and speed to the interconnected 4208’s but would like to keep the pwr supplies to the instruments and autopilot
Can I leave the Simrad
backbone feeding one 4208 and feed the Garmin backbone into the other 4208?
Will the wind and depth data be on both chartplotters?
