i noted that the Evolution autopilot is broadcasting Pitch + Roll data on the Seatalk network. Is there a way to display this data on the MFD or instruments?
It doesn't output pitch data, but it does output roll. You can put that information up on the MFD as a databox called Tilt.
I confirmed with "N2K Analyzer" That the EVO autopilot is indeed reporting (accurate) pitch data. However I can't seem to display this on the MFD. Your reply stated that pitch was *not* being sent, but it is indeed in the N2K data package. If the i70 doesn't support displaying it, can you please add a feature request? It would seem to be a very simple add.

While I don't recall any recent requests for pitch data, probably because it would be a constantly changing value due the sinusoidal nature of ocean waves, your feature request has been logged accordingly to be considered for inclusion within a future a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD software update as well as well as within future MFD designs.

The logic for including it (regardless of wave fluctuation) it is that it would greatly assist in balancing weight distribution in the boat as the manufacturer (in my case) states a 4 degree optimal pitch at cruise, would be helpful to see based on load and trim tab position what is the actual value.
