Raymarine makes a device called a PC/NMEA/SeaTalk Interface Box. This unit will provide the following functionality:
When used with Raymarine's RayTech navigation software
, the E85001 enables direct SeaTalk communucation between the PC and network, supporting functions like active route
and waypoint transfer. Alternatively, the E85001 can convert SeaTalk datastreams to NMEA 0183
, and NMEA 0183
sentences to SeaTalk, enabling other NMEA 0183 compatible navigation
devices to communicate with Raymarine SeaTalk compatible instruments
, autopilots, radars, and navigation aids. The E86001 serial
data cable (sold seperately) is recommended for connecting PCs to this device.
I use a Garmin
& High Definition Radar
, but all of my instruments
are Raymarine. I use the above device to interface a Raymarine ST70 Wind
, ST70 Tri-Data and ST70 Rudder
Angle indicator via NMEA 0183 to my Garmin chartplotter. The Chartplotter has a NMEA 2000 network, however I haven't seen anything that will interface the Raymarine product family
to Garmin via NMEA 2000.
Hope this helps!!
