what did we do 10 years ago sailing, we think we need it, we use it , we swear by it and vow never to be without it , then we lose it or it breaks and think what was all the fuss about as we remember what we did before it !!
something like a phone people swear by as well !!
and what do you mean your RADAR AIS DRS AUTOPILOT, WIND , TOILET LEVEL, ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, GPS ,WATER LEVEL, DIESEL LEVEL , YOUR NEXT MEDICATION DOSAGE, AND THE DOGS DINNER BELL will not be displayed on your 9 inch 2000 dollar
screen with nmea 2000 protocol which should be all color coordinated , but hey you bought a Garmin good luck linking it with your Raymarine
AH much better ty.
You get it! I want some instrumentation, but today it is so easy to go overboard.

Re: List of all available options for wind instruments?

There is also a Garmin wired package on Amazon

Garmin GMI 010-01248-30 GMI 20/GNX Depth/Speed/Wind Bundle

The ad has the wrong picture but this bundle has 1 colour annd 1 B&W display at a very competitive price.

Does anyone know of any nmea 2000 standalone displays?
The Triton or Triton2 line from B&G are NMEA 2000. If you buy just the display, it would be a standalone NMEA 2000 display. There are no proprietary connectors and they conform %100 to NMEA 2000.

Raymarine also has NMEA 2000 displays, but you need to deal with their proprietary SeaTalkNG connectors (I just spliced them into our canbus cables).

Re: List of all available options for wind instruments?

I decided to go with the Triton clearance package from Defender for $1,000!


Now to find a radar/chartplotter bunder for under $2k...preferably B&G.

Nice.. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Now I can't speak from experience.. but I know Garmin sometimes has a radar/plotter deal that I have been eyeing (like $1800). Garmin is also straight Micro-C connections, so it will hook up to the B&G without problems. (I said Canbus earlier by mistake, I meant Micro-C)

Maybe someone with experience can comment on the Garmin radar/plotter packages!

Re: List of all available options for wind instruments?

Now that the question has been reasonably discussed and answered, I'll share what my initial response to " List of all available options for wind instruments?" was:

Let's see... piccolo, flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet.......

Silly me!

Keep an eye on Defender. They used to have Zeus2/3G bundles but they are probably sold out. Also reconditioned stuff.
