Using a Garmin Quatix Watch with Raymarine Products

Hello Everyone,

I recently ordered the new Garmin Quatix 7 watch and would like to use it via a NMEA 2000 link with my Raymarine instruments onboard.

Is anyone successfully using the Garmin Quatix 6 or 7 watch with their Raymarine backbone and instruments (including autopilot) at this time?

Any advice on getting set up and what is possible would be appreciated.

Thank you,

J

Pretty sure it connects to a Garmin plotter. Not a nmea 2000 bus.

Re: Using a Garmin Quatix Watch with Raymarine Products

The Garmin website advertises a GNT™ 10 NMEA 2000® Transceiver with the following description:

The GNT 10 provides the ability to transmit NMEA 2000 data over the wireless ANT network to compatible devices, such as quatix® series marine smartwatches.

I am wondering if anyone on Cruisers Forum is using the Garmin Quatix with the GNT™ 10 NMEA 2000® Transceiver and Raymarine instruments at this time.

Here’s the PGNs that the GNT 10 will couple to the quatix watch

You will the GNT 10 in addition to the watch itself. This functionality is built into some garmin chartplotters but is not present in the raymarine ones.

Rays autopilot is controlled via private PGNS ( the public ones place it into and out of AUTO mode )

You’ll notice no autopilot PGNs are handled by the GNT10 anyway

In essence I n this mode the quatix watch is a receive only device.

Re: Using a Garmin Quatix Watch with Raymarine Products

Suggest you speak to a Garmin representative, or visit a real live Garmin shop.

As some have stated, the GNT-10 connects to a NMEA 2000 network and converts some PGN's to Garmin's wireless ANT protocol. Most of those PGN's are standard NMEA 2000 PGN's for data such as position, speed through water, wind etc.

As other have stated, and as expected, none of the PGN's supported are the proprietary PGN's that Raymarine use to control their autopilots, moreover one of the standard PGN's used to send heading information to an autopilot PGN 127237 is not listed as supported.

And from the Garmin web shop, it states the GNT 10 is discontinued. If you can source one, you will also need a SeatalkNG to DeviceNet adapter cable as Raymarine use their own proprietary connectors and Garmin does not.

If you peruse the Garmin Quatix 7 web site, it lists the GNT 10 as a compatible device.

On the other hand if you peruse the Garmin Connect IQ Apps store, the Boat Data app states that it is not compatible with the GNT 10.

A separate app, Autopilot, which allows you to control a Garmin autopilot, does not list the Quatix 7 as a supported device. In any case it's not going to be able to control a Raymarine autopilot.

So you'll need to sort out the marketing hype from reality.

Re: Using a Garmin Quatix Watch with Raymarine Products

Thank you for sharing the PGN Transmit and Receive options for the GNT-10.

Now I will need to decide if I use the Garmin Quatix 7 independently to glance at SOG, race timer, anchor alarm, etc. or add the GNT-10 to receive extra data connecting to my NMEA 2000 and Raymarine devices.

Thank you for your comments.

The gnt10 is discontinued but there are good stocks in the trade

Garmin shops will claim they know nothing about raymarine so don’t bother with them.

The gnt10 is a one way device so no control signals of any type are possible

Just bumping this to the top. Curious if anyone has been successful with pairing the Quatix with a non Garmin MFD? I have a Raymarine Axiom

You can't pair it with any non-Garmin MFD. However if you have an NMEA2000 network on your boat (and SeaTalk ng is just N2K with different connectors) you can pair the watch to an GNT10. The GTN10 is like a N2K to ANT (wireless watch protocol) gateway. If your N2K network has the required messages being sent on it the GNT10 will grab that and wirelessly broadcast it to any paired watches.

Now GNT10 is discontinued but you can still find it. I presume Garmin discontinued it because they realized non-Garmin customers <gasp> might use it to improve their mostly non-Garmin systems.

Thanks for the reply, I have been trying to source the GNT10. Might have to save a search on eBay for one?
