[CA11] Voyage Planner software
HI.
1. Is it possible to connect to PC directly from Axiom 9 without using a network switch if PC is only device connected to Axiom?

2. I have Axiom bundled with Navionics charts. Can I use same charts on PC that has Raymarine Voyage Planner software ? How ?

RE: [CA11] Voyage Planner software
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum sailM27,

Q1. Is it possible to connect to PC directly from Axiom 9 without using a network switch if PC is only device connected to Axiom?
A1. It is neither possible to connect a PC directly to an Axiom MFD nor to the network switch to communicate communicate with or access data from a a system featuring an Axiom MFD. Should access to GPS, instrument, or navigational data from a system featuring an Axiom MFD be desired, then it would be recommended that one utilize PC Navigational application supporting NMEA 2000 communications and that a NMEA 2000 to PC interface (ex. Actisense NGT-1) be interfaced as a spur to the system's powered and properly terminated SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone. While Voyage Planner PC navigational planning software is designed for offline planning of waypoints and routes and then transferring such data to the MFD via a microSD memory card, it is not designed to be interfaced directly to the marine electronics system.

Q2. I have Axiom bundled with Navionics charts. Can I use same charts on PC that has Raymarine Voyage Planner software ? How ?
A2. Yes. The charts from the Navionics chart card will be loaded from the Navionics chart card into the PC using the Charts->Install Charts feature (the PC must have access to the Internet when executing chart installation). Once loaded into Voyage Planner, the Navionics chart card may be returned to the MFD's memory card reader or boat, where it remain for use when using the MFD's Chart application.

RE: [CA11] Voyage Planner software
Hi Chuck. Are we talking about the same software ? Please see attached from Raymarine Voyage Planner Software manual.

Connecting to a Raymarine MFD
Selected models of Raymarine MFDs have built-in networking capability. Raymarine Voyage Planner can connect to new MFDs (C and E series) and share data in real time.
There are two scenarios for connecting Voyage Planner to an MFD:
 Network cable connection: The Raymarine MFD and the computer with Voyage Planner to be connected via the Raymarine SeaTalk HS Network Switch (Part number: E55058) using ethernet cables.
 Wireless (Wi-Fi) connection: The Raymarine MFD connects directly to the Wi-Fi enabled computer running Raymarine Voyage Planner.
FOR MORE DETAILS, REFER TO THE RAYMARINE MFD DATA EX-CHANGE GUIDE FOUND IN THE HELP FILE (HELP | CONTENTS).
To connect to the MFD using the Raymarine SeaTalk HS Network Switch:
1. Connect the computer to the switch using an Ethernet cable.
2. Connect the switch to the Raymarine MFD using an Ethernet cable. Allow connection in Windows Firewall if prompted.
3. On the network adapter connected to the switch, right click and select Properties.
4. Set the IPv4 address to 10.0.0.1 and its subnet mask to 255.0.0.0

RE: [CA11] Voyage Planner software
sailM27,

When initially introduced, Voyage Planner supported waypoint and route transfer via Ethernet and Wi-Fi communications. This capability has not existed for some time with a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs and has never existed with Axiom/Axiom Pro/Axiom XL MFDs. As has been stated several times within this Forum waypoint/route/track transfer between these MFDs and Voyage Planner can only be performed via microSD memory card.
