I have Ray seatalk
mostly, Speed thru water
. My present Autopilot
a 2002 Coursemaster 850i, has Fluxgate
, a rate gyro.
My frustration is I would really like to see wind
vector on my E7 Plotter, but it appears that my AP doesn't speak the nmea
sentence req'd by the Ray E7 presumably, so I can neither set my AP to wind or see true or apparent wind, my AP does take WP and GPS
coordinates from Ray.
According to Coursemaster I need to upgrade my Coursemaster AP about 3 Boatbucks. From Ray about 4 boatbucks and I will get one of those new evo200, my existing Linear Motor
is a type 1.
I lean towards Evo, but not now, is there another solution to get heading info economically. What instrument. TIA
