Couple of things...
1.) A Raymarine
MFD does not have a facility to tell it your vessels MMSI, it relies on the AIVDO sentence coming from the AIS Transponder to the Plotter via NMEA
. So if you are seeing your own vessel, something is wrong there as you are probably aware.
2.) The e7d has two NMEA0183 ports
and they both support 38400 speed, the speed is configurable on both ports
. Port 1 has input and output support, Port 2 is input only. For AIS, port 2 is fine because you don't really need to output anything from the MFD to the AIS.
Make sure that the HP-33A data2 outout is set to AIS
Question.. What NMEA
version did you set in the HP-33 data2 settings? Try changing the version in those settings.
What model of VHF
radio do you have on the boat
3.) There is no facility for ignoring a specific NMEA sentence in the e7d, if it understands the sentence and is receiving it, it will process it.
Do you have the NMEA0183 wiring
going directly from the HP-33 to the e7d? Or is there anything in the middle of that connection?
Is there anything connected to Port 1 of the e7d?
What devices are on the vessel connected to the SeaTalkNG network?
Have you gone into the e7 diagnostics menu and looked at the NMEA port buffer to see if AIVDO sentences are being received on that port? You should be able to see GP***, AIVDM, AIVDO, etc sentences being received. If not, then there is an issue with the HP33 or cabling, or configuration of the HP33.
Firmware update.. I did not find any AIS specific fix in the notes from Raymarine
, but it doesn't mean it's not a valuable exercise to upgrade. What version is on the e7d now? Is it the legacy software
or are you running Lighthouse now?
