Robertson RFC-200

I Want to overlay radar on my Standard Horizon cp300i. Will the RFC-200 work as a heading sensor on this set up? Any help is appreciated.

Re: Robertson RFC-200

I'm not familiar with the compass but the CP300 takes NMEA0183 data. If your compass can supply that data it should work. However I am very limited in my skills with this sort of thing: I'd call SH tech help and ask. I found them to be very helpful when setting up an autopilot last summer.

I guess contacting SH is the next step. I've not been able to find any info on the Robertson unit, I can buy it for $20.00 vs $300.00 + for a KVH 1000.

Got a reply from Simrad Robertson "it's a very old unit & will not operate on nmea0183". Found a KVH for $250.00 that will work so will go with it.
