[TG] Furuno Model 1621 connection to Axiom

RE: Furuno Model 1621 connection to Axiom
Hello Clive,

I'm sorry to say that there's no way to get the image from one manufacturer's radar on another manufacturer's display: as yet, there is no industry-standard equivalent of NMEA2000 that is capable of carrying radar imagery (NMEA2000 itself is much to slow for graphical data like this.) Every radar uses a manufacturer-specific proprietary communications language at present. The NMEA organisation's OneNet protocol may allow this in the future, but that's a way away at this stage. You can connect Furuno radar displays over NMEA0183 or 2000 using appropriate connections or interfaces (depends on the specific devices in question) but that will only share things like MARPA target data and cursor position, not the radar image itself.


Raymarine since 1999.
Interests: Diagnosis of problems in sonar/fishfinders, NMEA2000, ethernet comms, autopilots, thermal cameras
Location: Sydney, Australia.

Please don't PM me asking for direct support, please ask a public question instead so that others can see the question and answer. Forum posts will always be answered before PM requests.
