Networking a95 to non-Raymarine A/P

RE: Networking a95 to non-Raymarine A/P
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum

The E70196 VHF NMEA 0183 to STng Converter Kit is not designed to perform as a full SeaTalkng to NMEA 0183 data bridge and as such, is not applicable to interfacing an autopilot supporting 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications. Should a device require 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 data from the Raymarine system, then the device should either be
- interfaced to the MFD's Port 1 and the MFD's port 1 should be configured to "NMEA 4800"
- interfaced to a NMEA 0183 to SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 data bridge (ex. Actisense NGW-1-STNG, etc.) which is in turn interfaced as a spur to a powered and properly terminated SeaTalkng backbone to which the MFD has also been interfaced as a spur.

The advantage of the latter solution is that it would not only support supplying GPS data to the VHF radio / AIS receiver, but would also support supplying the MFD and any other SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 spur device supporting AIS features to have access to AIS data.
