RE: [CA11] Upgrade an old system?
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum svaspen,

Replacement of the E-Series Classic MFD with eS12x MFD or an Axiom 12 MFD would require replacement of the currently installed radome and its cable.

Axiom MFDs are not supported for use with a DSM30 or DSM300, necessitating its replacement with a CP370. If an Axiom MFD is installed, then HS5 RayNet Network Switch would need to be installed to accommodate interfacing the MFD, radome, and CP370/DSM to one another. The latter would not be required within a system featuring an eS-Series MFD, but may make the installation easier as well as permit easier expansion of the system.

It is recommended that the SPX autopilot course computer be installed as a SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 device and that the ST6002 be replaced with a p70S autopilot control head. The MFD, i60 Wind, autopilot control head, and SPX10 would then each be interfaced as individual spurs to a powered and properly terminated SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone which would include a SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter to support integration with your current system's devices having a SeaTalk communications interface (ST60+ instruments, Raystar 125 GPS Sensor, etc.). If installing an Axiom MFD, then it would be recommended that the software of the SPX10 be updated prior to installation of the Axiom MFD, as Axiom MFDs are not designed to update the software of these autopilot course computers.
