Sorry guys if this has been asked here before, but after an hour of searching this forum, I just couldn't find the definitive answer I was looking for. Here are the "givens" in my situation:
I have Furuno
N2k sensors wired into a Furuno #FI5002 Junction box
, which also has two NMEA2000 backbone ports
. From this junction box, sensor data is then sent to a few Furuno
FI50 displays in my cockpit
. This junction box is located near my nav station.
Quite simply, how can I input sensor data from my Furuno N2k sensors into my OpenCPN
(with USB ports), specifically GPS
data? Can I tap into the junction box? Do I need some type of adapter cable or gateway?
