Navicom RT-550 vhs/ais with B&G Zeus7

Hi! Any tips, how I can connect Navicom RT 550 (only nmea 0183) vhf and B&G Zeus 7 (nmea 0183/2000)chartplotter? Anyone already tried?

The VHF receives now gps´s signal (nmea0183) from the plotter, but plotter is not responding to ais data. AIS output should display on plotter. I don´t have a splitter.

(Btw. B&G plotters are similar with many Simrad plotters.)

Here is some information about the wiring (the last page)

What is the problem?

Navicom RTt-550 vhf nmea 0183 cable:

Yellow nmea in +
Green nmea in -
Orange nmea out +
Bare nmea out -
Blue nmea out + (ais)
Grey nmea out - (ais)

(RT550 Noire - VHF fixes - Navicom - Navicom - Toute l'électronique marine)

B&G zeus7´s manual:
Zeus Touch 7

Re: Navicom RT-550 vhs/ais with B&G Zeus7

my guess would be both your plotter and vhf at at 4800baud. you need to make them both 38,400. but I'm not familiar with that vhf, only the SH.

you may need 2 ports with this radio. one at 4800 and one at 38,400, in which case it won't work because the zeus only has 1. the SH radios fixed that on the newer models.
