MFDs running LH II / 3 not sharing radar, cartography, fishfinder, satellite weather
MFDs running LightHouse II / 3 not sharing cartography, radar, fishfinder, satellite weather with one another

Within a system of MFDs running LightHouse II or LightHouse 3 software, it is important that each MFD within the system be running the same version of software, preferably the latest available version of LightHouse II or LightHouse 3 software. Of the system's MFDs, one of the MFDs will be interfaced to the system's powered and properly terminated SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone should there be a SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone installed onboard the boat. This MFD will then need to be designated as the system's Data Master MFD. The function of the system's Data Master MFD is to bridge data from the system's SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone to the system's Ethernet communications network from which the system's other MFDS will access this data. Cartography, radar, fishfinder, SiriusXM satellite weather/radio, IP camera, thermal camera, and Fusion 7xx Series Stereo resources are also designed to be shared between the MFD's via the system's Ethernet communications network. Depending upon the model of MFD, each MFD will feature one, two, or three Ethernet communications interfaces. Should the system's MFDs not feature a sufficient number of Ethernet communications interfaces to permit MFDs and peripherals having an Ethernet communications interface to be networked to one another, then a HS5 RayNet Network Switch(es) would need to be installed to provide the additional Ethernet interfaced required to network the products. With the exception of thermal cameras and IP cameras, the Ethernet communications interface of all currently manufactured Raymarine products features a RayNet (M) socket. Accordingly, these products may be interfaced to one another or to a HS5 RayNet Network Switch via an appropriate length of RayNet (F) to RayNet (F) Cable. Raymarine offers adapters to adapt accessories and cables featuring RJ-45 or SeaTalkhs socket/connectors to be mated to a RayNet plug or socket. Raymarine Ethernet networking cables, adapters, and accessories may be found on [url=[/url].
