New to boating
as of last year, so looking for some help with questions about the new B&G Triton 2 package I bought this year to replace some very old equipment
. The B&G package included:
2 x Triton 2 displays
1 x WS310 Wind
1 x ZG100 GPS antenna
1 x DST800 D/S/T Plastic thru hull transducer
w/ 2 meter cable (Depth / Speed / Temperature)
-NMEA 2K backbone kit & connectors
I had it professionally installed and it's working great so far, however it seems like I'm missing some features - see questions below.
Things to note: I currently do not have a chart plotter or auto-pilot connected to the NMEA
1) The Temperature is not showing on the Triton 2 displays. Why?
2) Configuring the Triton 2 displays - I'm able to see the standard 8 'Pre-defined pages' and I figured out how to deactivate the pages I don't want to see. But how do get to the OTHER 8 'Pre-defined pages' (like AIS
& Weather)? There should be a total of 16 pages I can choose from. Currently I only have 5 Active pages.
(w/ MMSI configured) - do I need to have my VHF Radio
connected to the same NMEA
2K network for AIS to work
? ...or should it still work
with my GPS
(connected to NMEA 2K network)? I would like to be able to the see the MMSI registered vessels on my Triton 2 displays, versus the small VHF
4) I read about installing new software
releases via USB. I haven't performed any upgrade yet - do you think that may resolve some of these issues?
I sent an email
to B&G support a couple weeks ago, but no response. Is it better to call?
Thanks in advance for your help.
