So, I bought basically one of everything that simrad
makes and now i'm trying to get it all connected together. I've run into a couple of stumbing blocks that I can't figure out.
I am trying to tie in my wind
instruments and depth
(IS20 Combi package), etc. to both the provided displays and my Chartplotter
(NSS 9 Evo2). The chart plotter is connected to the Autopilot
and everything else via NMEA 2000
the instrument package and displays I have have all these simnet connectors and joiners. Currently I have the wind
, speed sensors connected into the simnet 3 port joiner (yellow colored ports), on cable is then connected into the IS20 Combi display, another cable then connects from the IS20 Combi into the IS20 wind instrument display, I then have a Simnet to NMEA 2000
cable which oddly connects into the port labeled "OUT" on the NMEA
2000 network in place of a terminator.
Does that sound correct? I cannot confirm this via the manuals
or any documentation
anywhere, all I see is that with NMEA
2000 you are supposed to connect each device directly into the NMEA 2000 network of course I don't have all the cables
to do that.
Second question I have is with the Radar
and the GoFree wifi
both use the "Ethernet" port on the back of the NSS9 display. Since the GoFree has two Network/Ethernet ports
do I connect the go free into the chart polotter and then the radar
module into the second port on the gofree or do I need something else?
