Raymarine MFD and AIS

I have a Raymarine A65 MFD with a 3rd party AIS. The AIS works great, but I am having issues getting it to talk to the A65. I "thought" it would be as simple as connecting it to the NMEA 2000 network and then I realized that the A65 can not get AIS data through NMEA 2000. It can receive it through 0183, of course this unit does not have a 0183 connection.

After a discussion with support, they were a little wishy washy on which path to take. They said I could buy the backbone, spur etc Or possibly using a Gemeco converter to to get the input via 0183.

Before I start buying a bunch of cabling that may or may not work, I would love to hear if anyone on here has used the converter or if the seatalk backbone to 0183 will work.

Re: Raymarine MFD and AIS

This is an old thread but I am in the same situation now. Did you ever get your AIS to talk to the A65?
