[CA11] a70d - navtex
I have a NASA PC Navtex engine 9600 baud suitable for Raymarine C & E series

I bought it to use with my C120, but as I already had Raymarine AIS installed, my electrician told me I couldn't use both at the same time due to the difference in baud rates between the Navtex and the AIS.

Recently, I got a used A70D and I am wondering if I can use the A70D to display Navtex data. I find no information about the baud rate used by an A70D.

Besides the antenna cable and the power cable that connect to the NASA "black box" there is a 9 pin connection on the black box and a cable with a 9 pin connector, but the cable from the connector only has a black wire, red wire and shield. The very limited NASA instruction sheet says leave the red wire unconnected to receive International Navtex at 518kHz.

NASA hasn't been able to help me with this technical question.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum George,

Unfortunately, Raymarine MFDs running LightHouse II (ex. a/c/e-Series MFDs, eS/gS-Series MFDs) or LightHouse 3 software (Axiom/Axiom Pro/Axiom XL MFDs, eS/gS-Series MFDs do not feature support for NAVTEX integration.
