I have a boat
with an nmea2k system (GPS, wind
etc) and an independent seatalk
driven tiller pilot.
A few quick questions for anyone who might know the answers.
1. Where is the tiller pilot getting its heading from? There's a flux compass
on the solar
panel frame in the stern, I'm assuming it's this.
2. Can I connect the nmea2k to the seatalk
so that the seatalk can get it's heading from the GPS
? (Should I? Obviously I'm aware that it will struggle to get a heading from the GPS
if I'm in irons, but I'm also aware that the tiller pilot could probably benefit from water
3. Assuming they can be connected, what is the cheapest way to achieve that?
Thanks in advance!
