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 - getorca.com) so I need AIS in the NMEA2k and send it to the C120 in the helm
(Hopefully I am not being too confusing.)
Now do you have experience with YDNR-02 from yacht devices? (https://www.yachtd.com/products/wifi_router.html
) 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.
