Just completed passage
and unfortunately lost
visibility on my depth
display along the way. Unit seems to be fine other than 3/4 of the LCD not lighting
up. My question is, how can I replace the depth
display without upgrading the entire system? I will upgrade it all at the end of the season but have my better half arriving tonight for several weeks and she'd rather be out enjoying herself than stuck in a boatyard. I'd rather have a bot more time to decide which instruments to go with.
The S11 seems to operate on unique NMEA 0183
sentences and therefore it looks like picking up simple depth display from another manufacturer will not work
. Any ideas? Does anyone know if I can wire up the IS20 mullti-purpoase through its proprietary connector? I called Simrad
but they're not open for Support on weekends. The good news is my lady is in the Bay Area tonight through 7:00 PM and can most likely source parts
if I can find out what is needed.
