I bought an x-5 autopilot
system with the new p70 display for my sailboat.
On the boat I have a
instrument (NMEA 0183)
-old speed and depth
instruments I want to replace with (NMEA2000) instruments from Airmar.
With the P70 being nmea 2000
, the st60+ being nmea 0183
and the instruments being NMEA2000 will the x-5 course computer which has ports
for all of them translate the information between each device back and forth.
Basically will the course computer translate the NMEA2000 speed instrument information so that the ST60+ NMEA0183 wind
instrument will be able to calculate true wind direction.
I want to minimize the amount of displays and make the system simple. Im also considering the tridata st60+ raymarine
display with appropriate speed and depth
instruments for that. Some clarification would be much appreciated. Man all this is soo confusing when the manual fails to address these basic issues.
