RE: Connecting SeaTalk1 and NMEA2000 using the SeaTalk Converter
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum JDGALE0070,

Q1. I think I need the Raymarine seatalk to seatalkng converter kit (linking to the unused second seatalk port on the autohelm) and a seatalkng to NMEA 2000 converter cable to put the MFD into the converter. Is this correct?
A1. This is partly correct. A SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter Kit will be required and it will be necessary to interface the third party device to the SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 backbone which comprises the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter. However, it is recommended that a single unpowered SeaTalk bus be created (as long it it is not comprised of more than five SeaTalk devices) and that the bus be connected to the SeaTalk socket of the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter. This would necessitate ensure that the SeaTalk power pin(red) of the ST4000+ is not connected to the SeaTalk bus (ex. cut the ST4000+'s SeaTalk cable then only splice its yellow and shield leads back together, leaving its red leads not spliced).

Q2. Will the autohelm talke course tracking info over its seatalk interface?
A2. Yes

Q3. Should the fluxgate compass be disconnected from the auto-helm?
A3. No.

Q4. Are there any other considerations to make this all work?
A4. Ask your dealer to ensure that the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter purchased has been updated with the latest SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter software update before shipping the product or leaving the store.
