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!!
