[CA11] No GPS Info on MFD GPS Status Page
Had to replace GPS Sensor with RS150 via a network adapter as system is seatalk not seatalkng
GPS position now all good but the GPS status page does not show the satellite information
Also some time issues
I read somewhere that the seatalk to seatalkng adapter does not allow some GPS info to go from the GPS sensor(on seatalkng) to the MFD (on seatalk)
Is that correct and is there any way to fix
Thanks

RE: [CA11] No GPS Info on MFD GPS Status Page
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum magic8,

Q. The GPS status page does not show the satellite information.
A. This is indeed a limitation of the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter. As you have suggested, the critical GPS data is bridged by the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter. For system featuring a MFD which supports SeaTalkng communications when updated with the latest available software for the MFD (ex. E-Series Classic MFDs, GPM400, C/E-Series Widescreen MFDs), it would be recommended that the MFD be disconnected from the SeaTalk bus and instead be interfaced to the system via the MFD's SeaTalkng communications interface to permit access to more data. Please click here to view a FAQ addressing the proper method to interface a Raystar 150 GPS Sensor to an E-Series Classic MFD.

Thanks for info
Is it possible to simply connect the E80 to the seatalkng adapter by using another connecter on the instrument or is it not that easy.
Also the time on the MFD seems to be locked to UTC since we installed the adapter and I believe that also comes from the GPS antenna.
Thanks again

magic 8,

Q1. Is it possible to simply connect the E80 to the seatalkng adapter by using another connecter on the instrument or is it not that easy.
A1. Negative. Please refer to the FAQ referenced within my initial response to view how the Raystar 150 GPS Sensor should be interfaced to an E-Series Classic MFD

Q2. Also the time on the MFD seems to be locked to UTC since we installed the adapter and I believe that also comes from the GPS antenna.
A2. When interfaced in the manner specified within the referenced FAQ and when the local time offset has been properly configured, the reported symptom should not be observed.
