[CA11] Multiple Axiom interfacing issues

RE: [CA11] Multiple Axiom interfacing issues
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum dpddj,

Q1) Under network, the Axiom 9 also indicates it is the data master, so both MFDs want to be DM. I cannot fiind a way (including factory reboot) to turn off A9 DM. The A9 does see the AP9 and is set up to get the time and GPS info from the AP9. The A9 also sees the AIS that plugs into the SeaTalk connector.
A1) Proper networking of Axiom/Axiom Pro/Axiom MFDs requires that they be interfaced to a one another via Ethernet networking, not via a SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 network. Failure to properly network the MFDs to one another will result in each MFD reporting that it needs to be set as a Data Master MFD. Failure to properly interface the MFDs to one another will also permit them from sharing resources such as cartography, radar, fishfinder, thermal cameras, and other features requiring high bandwidth communications. This problem may also occur if a Raymarine Ethernet (RayNet) cable has been cut and then incorrectly spliced back together.

In a nutshell, each MFD should be interfaced to one another or to a powered HS5 RayNet Network Switch via an appropriate length of RayNet (F) to RayNet (F) Cable. Please attach a system diagram indicating how your MFDs have been interfaced to one another.

Q2) The Quantum radar plugs into AP9, into a network port. FYI, the radar works and shows up on the AP9. The radar does not show up on the A9, even when I try to start it from A9. I prefer to not go WIFI for A9.
A2. See the response to Q1.

Q3) On the AP9, There is a cable from the NEMA2000 port into the SeaTalk connector. The A9 also plugs into the connector.
A3) Should the MFDs only be interfaced to one another via SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000, then no sharing of high bandwidth data will occurs as indicated within my response to Q1.

Q4) Both MFDs are on the same display group.
A4. Noted, but not pertinent to this issue.

Q5) I run Navionics charts on the AP9. I cannot get the A9 to see these charts.
A5) Should the MFDs only be interfaced to one another via SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000, then no sharing of high bandwidth data (ex. cartography, radar, etc.) will occur as indicated within my response to Q1.
