Hi. I'm trying to finish the electronics
system in my small budget
Geonav 11 flash: 2xNMEA0183 1xNMEA2000
ST1000+ 1xNMEA0183 1xseatalk
ArimarP79 Sounder (NMEA2000)
I'll also get a wind sensor
,but it has to be compatible with the AP, wich I understand the Clipper one, is not. Looks like the maretron ones is the way to go.
The ST70 may not be used for much more than as a sounder for now, but I got it for less than half price
. And I want to use it as a wind
sends on NMEA0183, to the plotter and vhf
The plotter sends on NMEA0183 to the AP.
This works fine, as of now..
I guess all the NMEA2000 stuff just goes together on the bus..
But is it possible to get wind data on both the ST70 display AND the ST1000+ AP?
If I'm correct, the ST1000+ does not convert NMEA0183 to ST1.
I have seen claims that it does, but I don't think the ST70 converts from ST1 to STng/NMEA2000 either, it just shows data from both buses.
About the Geonav?? no idea! This thing is from 2001, and all the manual says about NMEA2000 is that the standard was not properly defined when the plotter went into production ,and may, or may not need an software
I guess it transmit Nav data and wind data on the NMEA2000 network, but still, no guarantee.
So..NMEA2000 or 0813 windsensor?
Do you think I can connect the ST1000+ to the ST70, at the same time the ST70 is connected to the Geonav plotter trough NMEA2000?
A bit messy, I know.. Oh,yeah,Would be great if I could hookup my computer with Ocpn at any time...
