Raymarine SmartPilot X5 and SeatalkNG

Hello,
I have the smartpilot X5 on my boat, connected to my C-70 display. Recently I purchased the new P70 pilot controller.

However it seems that the Seatalk cable which came with my X5 for the connection to the autopilot does not work anymore, since the new display now has Seatalkng. Fortunately my X5 control board has a Seatalkng connection, however it says "The Course Computer does NOT supply power for SeaTalkng. A SeaTalkng system must be powered from its own separate power supply." and it advises to cut back and insulate yellow and to cut back and insulate "screen". so I was wondering how to hook up the power supply - 12V from my battery?, and which wires to use?


Thanks,
Chris

You are going to need a Seatalk ng backbone to hook these two units together and power the head. More $$$ unfortunately

The black connection in the upper left goes to an NG spur/converter which is out of view on the right. I have a P70, digital radar and ST 60 (non-NG) instruments tied into a C90W. I have the AP, Radar and CP on individual circuit breakers and the ST 60s on yet another.

Opie is correct. If you do need one, I may have a spare-never used in the box. If interested PM me and I will dig it up...

Re: Raymarine SmartPilot X5 and SeatalkNG

Thanks, everybody. Well, I am in Mexico right now and we want to leave here in a bout 10 days, so my options are limited. Don't think you can send it down here ;-(
I still hope that the X5 Course computer's SeatalkNG connection might work?
