I am installing my new AIS
. Never had one before so I had to run new wires, about 10 hours worth! When I finally got to the point of connecting it to my MFD I realized I had a problem.
The MFD has two communication ports
. Currently I have DSC radio
and Auto Pilot for the two ports
, both going from the MFD to the respective device. So I thought easy enough. I'll send the AIS
to the radio
and then the radio back to the port as a "receive". The radio does have the capability to display AIS.
Now to my question. What about the baud rate? I'm sending the radio gps
nav position at a lower rate than the MFD wants to see for AIS. Will the MFD automatically sense and do what it needs to do?
Or, can I simply leave the wiring
as it is and plug
the AIS into the receive part of the com port that sends to the radio? But again, what about the baud rate?
Here's the gear
Digital Yacht ATI1500 AIS;
Standard Horizon GX2000.
I would have simply hooked it up and tried it but I'm still waiting for an adapter for the AIS antenna
. Hopefully someone can help me with this so when the adapter comes in everything will be ready to go!
