E120/SeaRay Navigator Upgrade ?

RE: E120/SeaRay Navigator Upgrade ?

Q) Flipping the last question around, can I leverage a single MFD's NMEA 0183 outputs to feed multiple listeners? ie, the VHF and my VesselView that's looking for GPS data. Or, should I use the NMEA 0183 outputs of the "slave" MFD to feed that device? I wasn't sure if the slave broadcasts NMEA data or only the data master. Which is ok/better?
A) Please click here to view a FAQ addressing this subject. Unlike the SeaTalkng/NMEA and SeaTalk communications interfaces of Raymarine MFD, the NMEA 0183 interfaces MFDs will be operational irrespective of whether the MFD has or has not been configured as the system's Data Master MFD. However, in this case, I would simply recommend following the recommendations of the FAQ unless the physical locations of the MFDs and NMEA 0183 listeners make it more convenient to use the NMEA 0183 ports of each MFD to supply data to the NMEA 0183 listeners.
