I will redo the cockpit
instrument panel this spring. Currently installed are Garmin
GPSMap 720 plotter, simrad autopilot
control unit, really old depth sounder
, and an analogue log. I'm keeping the Simrad
AP24 and the Garmin
which has its own depth transducer
, so don't need the separate sounder. Planning to upgrade the log, and adding a wind
gauge. I would like to have the wind
and log data displayed at the same time (which I think the multi displays don't?), but keeping the displays down to 3 (AP, Plotter, 4,5" log/multidisplay).
If I may pick your collective brain on these questions:
- Is there any chance of using the signal of the existing paddle wheel
assembly with any modern log or multipurpose display?
- same question for the old transducer
; if I would keep it could it be hooked up to a modern display?
- Is it possible to hook the wind gauge to the Garmin plotter and have the data displayed on a split screen
- or do I just need 2 separate extra displays for wind and log + new sources?
was no help, and would appreciate suggestions and opinions.
