YDNR-02 to Raymarine C120 & C70

Hi folks,

I am slowly replacing everything I have for Garmin gear. One of the last pieces that I have is the helm plotter, which is a Raymarine C120 connected to the radar. The reason I don't want to mess with that right now is that I am considering the Garmin GPSMAP 1222 + Garmin radar, which is going to run around 3,5k euros. I could, but I would rather keep it as it is working for its purpose. I also have a C70 in the navstation being replaced by the GPSMAP 922.

Now my current problem is that the my AIS receiver has either NMEA2k OR NMEA0183 (Garmin AIS 300). I have other things connected to my NMEA2k net that want the AIS as well (GSMAP 922 and Orca - so I need AIS in the NMEA2k and send it to the C120 in the helm through NMEA0183.

(Hopefully I am not being too confusing.)

Now do you have experience with YDNR-02 from yacht devices? ( I am thinking that this solves all my problems, as it even allow me to choose the messages I want to send to the NMEA0183 from the NMEA2k network. If it does all I would need to do is to connect my AIS receiver to NMEA2k, which is the current setup, and send what I want to the NMEA0183 (or seatalk cable in this case) connected to the C120.

Any help would be super appreciated.

Re: YDNR-02 to Raymarine C120 & C70

just run a nmea 183 cable from the ais to the e120. and the nmea 2000 to the backbone. the ais will do both.

you will need the nmea 183 cable for the c120 if it's not there. that may be hard to find if you don't have it. if it is there it can't currently be used for anything else. like feeding gps to the vhf. if so you'd have to move that elsewhere. as the port will need to be set to high speed for the ais.

you'll need to update it as well if it's not. only the newest few versions of the 120 will take ais.

seatalk is totally different. different plug / cable / data. you need the 183 cable in the back.
