I'm trying to help a friend install a Vesper XB-8000 AIS
on his boat
which has a Raymarine
MFD. He would prefer to run a NMEA 2000
backbone rather than NEMA 0183 cables
for future proofing, but there is conflicting information on the internet
regarding whether the C80 can accept AIS
data over NEMA 2000/Seatalk2.
Has anyone here actually done this, or tried and failed?
