the radar control messages out of.
The non-touch Zeus has multiple Ethernet ports. If you are using the newer Zeuses, you have to use an Ethernet router.
In my case, yes, I as using my non-touch Zeus as the router, with three ethernet devices plugged into the back of it:
2. Interconnection with the other Zeus at the helm
(a touch version)
3. Wifi-1 module.
If you don't have a non-touch plotter with multiple ports, I think you can use any generic Ethernet router, but you have a problem with the connectors, since Navico
doesn't use normal RJ45 connectors, but rather their weird proprietary one.
It's probably cheaper to use their router.
Now the Wifi-1 module has two ports, so I think you can plug
the radar into that and then connect the Wifi-1 to the single
Ethernet port of the touch plotter, but then you can't connect the interconnection to your other plotter.
They should have given the Wifi-1 multiple ports.
