A bit of advice
On my 55 I have 5 screens. The one at the nav. station has failed. It is connected to a remote
controller that allows you to view any of the four screens in the cockpit
has told me I need to replace it as it is not fixable. Also according to their tech person he said a new one would not be compatible with my other screens as new devices are not backwards compatible.
I said I find this hard to believe especially as the yacht is only 5 years old.
His reply was that the screen
is 12 years old. I asked how is this possible?
He had traced the serial
number and thus could prove it. Apparently Beneteau
bought up a large batch and it took years to work
through this stock.
I am reluctant to buy a new screen
although I do not believe his "backwards compatible " line as they all work
on NM2000 .
Am I being overly optimistic or should I just move a screen downstairs from the cockpit
as no one really needs 4 screens?
