Being a rookie on OpenCPN
and marine electronics
, I thought I'd make a reach out here before I go and purchase
I may not need.
We don't use a chartplotter
and run GPS
via our N2K network onto our PC onboard (opencpn). My next step is to get our Garmin 18 xHD
data displayed in OpenCPN
The radar antenna
has a power switch installed and we have pulled an ethernet cable from the antenna
into the cockpit
My sweet dream would be to just plug
it into the PC (via a ethernet to usb-c adapter) right away. However, when I am looking at the instruction provided in the OpenCPN help-pages, a setup using an "Amphenol MRJ*5780*01 adapter
" is suggested. Is this required or can I just plug
in the ethernet cable to the PC?
I assume this question is already covered in another thread somewhere, but I couldnt find it when searching.
