I am looking to connect my GX2200 VHF to the seatalk backbone so I can see the AIS output on my ES7 chartplotter. What is required?
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum tartan33_can,

Unfortunately, the GX2200 does not feature a NMEA 2000 communications interface. If seeking to interface the GX2200 to a NMEA 2000 backbone, a NMEA 2000 data bridging device supporting 38400 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications (ex. Actisense NGW-1-ISO-AIS) would be required. If the NMEA 2000 data bridging device is wired to the GX2200's 38400 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications interface in a manner which would support bidirectional communications, the not only would the MFD receive AIS data via the NMEA 2000 backbone, but the GX2200 would receive GPS data in support of its DSC and AIS features ... see page 21 of the GX2200's Owner's manual ... the NMEA 2000 to NMEA 0183 data bridging device would be substituted in place of the GPS receiver shown within the diagram.
