Anyone with information of modern radar units with n2k?
Welcome to the forum, Harri.
We have Zeus T8 chart plotters and the B&G 4G RADAR installed.
As mentioned by others, the RADAR uses ethernet for the network connection because N2k would not be fast enough [among other things...]
I'm going to guess your goal is to share the RADAR image with more than your chart plotter?
If so, we share RADAR images
using a GoFree Wifi
device making it available on iOS and Android devices [a view only or interactive image of the Zeus screen
Our next project
is to connect a laptop
to the B&G ethernet network to feed RADAR info to OpenCPN
In case this is helpful.
