If not, your ais is probably defective if it's sending its own data. It would 't have anything to do with the plotter.
Hi smac999, very good hint
. I indeed do have one transmitting AIS and another receiving AIS build into ICOM
IC M-506, that was ment as a backup device. I also somehow came to same conclusion this might be a problem, the VHF radio
is connected to NMEA2K network to get GPS
data and it also sends AIS data to the N2K network and i cannot find a way to disable only AIS to be sent to network, it is also overloading the network with redundant data.
In spite of this i would expect the MFD device to recognize own vessel id and skip it.
I know i can disconnect the VHF from N2K but then the GPS
data needed for distress
will be missing... or acquired from different source, looking for some better solution.
