Need to get up to date on Electronics

I am sort of old school as far as navigation is concerned. I even still own a sextent. I have used GPS on my previous boats but these new integrated systems have me totally confused. Our new (to us) trawler has a Simrad chart plotter with radar.

What I am looking for is a recommendation for a book or web site that will get me up to speed

Re: Need to get up to date on Electronics

You tube is your new friend:

https://www.youtube.com/user/SimradYachting


Huge range of instructional video's. Sort video based on your installed equipment product type, and / or watch the generalised ones too.


Raymarine have a good channel on their products too. They also cover subjects such as NMEA networking (SeaTalkNG in Raymarine Speak) Collison avoidance etc, the principals are the same, independant of product line.

Thanks. I use YouTube for a bunch of things. Don't know why I didn't think of it.
