I upgraded my Chartplotter
to a Vulcan 7 in nthe spring after reading good review in the Practical Boat Owner. Part of tghe review stated something like 'we used N2K so all the instruments could talk to each other'.
I knew going in that the Nexus wind
and log instruments (NMEA 0183) required a Garmin
interface so they could talk to the Vulcan (N2k).
The Vesper Marine AIS
connected no problem.
Most annoyingly I was informed that the Raymarine autopilot
(0183) would 'talk' to the Vulcan if I used an Actisense adaptor.
After connecting everything up the Vulcan gave an error message that 'No Autopilot
Numerous emails to B&G eventually elicited the info that each manufacturer's uses their own programmes and autopilots from other manufacturers are not compatible and will not work.
If anybody knows any different please let me know.
I now use the autopilot on its own which defeats the purpose.....
