So I am doing a partial refit
of my navigation equipment
. I am replacing the gps
, and depth
sensors that all used to speak nmea 0183
. The replacements
are: B&G Vulcan 9 chart, B&G V50 vhf
, and the B&G Triton 2 wind
, speed, and mfd. The devices that are staying 0183 are the Furuno radar
, and the B&G NETWORK pilot. (https://manuals.bandg.com/discontinu..._%28ACP%29.pdf
I am looking into interfacing the 0183 stuff with this:
It looks to be a multiplexer and gateway all rolled into one device.
My question is this:
Do I still have to use the old display with all the autopilot
controls or can I network in the pilot from the acp and use the new triton display as the new controller, or do I have to keep the original controller?
any and all thoughts are welcome!
