[CA11] E120 displaying GPS, but not depth or AIS

[CA11] E120 displaying GPS, but not depth or AIS
I have the following, as shown in the attachment:
Raymarine ST4000+, ST 60 Tridata, SeaTalk 1 connected to an E22158
B&G Vulcan V7, connected to the E22158 via a SeaTalk NG cable
E22158 connected via a SeaTalk backbone cable to my NMEA 2000 network
Raymarine E120, connected to the NMEA 2000 network via SeaTalk 2 port
Standard Horizon GX2150, connected to the NMEA 2000 network via a Yacht Devices YDNG-3 (NMEA 0183 to NMEA 2000 gateway)

It all works... with the exceptions noted below:
GPS data: This works across all devices. The E120 shows a GPS fix, and displays the data from the Vulcan 7. The GX2150 also shows the same GPS data.
Depth: The depth displayed on the ST60 Tridata shows on the Vulcan 7, but only if I power up the TriData and the ST4000+ first. The depth does not display at all on the E120.
AIS: This displays correctly AIS targets on the GX2150, and on the Vulcan 7. The E120 indicates no AIS (a red X), and thus does not display any AIS information.
I don't understand how the E120 can see the GPS data from the NMEA 2000 network, but not depth or AIS. Is there something I can do to resolve this? I really want to keep the E120, as it has radar as well.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Dan,

E-Series Classic MFDs featured limited support for NMEA 2000 integration, and this was primarily targeted to support interfacing NMEA 2000 engine systems to the MFD. The greatest level of such support will take place in E-Series Classic MFDs which have been updated with the final E-Series Classic MFD software update (v5.69). It is also recommended that the ST-STng Converter's software level be verified to be at v2.03 and if not that these products be updated accordingly. That said, the software of E-Series Classic MFDs never supported processing NMEA 2000 PGNs featuring AIS data. It operating with v5.69 software, the same would appear so for NMEA 2000 PGNs featuring depth data, at least within the versions of software presently installed. Should the equipment have been updated with the specified software and should the problem persist, then you may want to consider disconnecting the E-Series Classic MFD from the STng / NMEA 2000 backbone and instead interface it to the SeaTalk bus to which the ST60 instruments have been interfaced.
