I am evaluating the replacement of all electronics
, my eyes are fallen on the new Raymarine
"i" serie. It seems they are now realy NMEA 2000
compatible and can communicate with other manufacters NMEA 2000 hardware
I'm thinking of a NMEA
2000 backbone with a SPX-5 wheel autopilot
. At the helm
a RM i70 Multi Display for Wind
, Speed and Temp. a RM P70 AP Control Head
and a Garmin
GPSMAP 720 Plotter.
The Speed, Depth
Transducers connected to the NMEA
2000 network through a RM iTC-5.
My older Garmin
GPSMAP 620 and OpenCPN
PC connected to the NMEA 2000 network through a Actisense NGW-1
Advantage, only one cable running through the boat and almost everything connected to a modern CAN Network.
My worries; How good will the GPSMAP 620 and OpenCPN
