I installed over the week-end my DMK GPS box and it's working
very well. I have a question about the installation. I have a
Seatalk NG nettwork. On this network, I have connected:
1. X-10 pilot,
2. P70 control pilot
3. Compass (raymarine)
4. St40 Transducer Bridge to a Deep Pod.
5. I also have connected directly to the X-10, the ruder position
(old B&G) and the Hydraulic pump.
Next week I will install my NMEA2000 Wind Transducer.
When it was time to connect the DMK box, I used a Raymarine Seatalk
ng cable with a connector to one side and no connector to the other
I look in the manual and I selected NMEA200 drop cable for the
connection to the DMK box to the seatalk bus. The DMK app display
the deep on the instrument Ipad and the INAVX receive the position
on the second Ipad.
On the packet logs, I see that the ruder position is not able to
communicate with the selected protocol. I saw something about an
error message on NMEA 2000 .
My question is:
Should I regroup to a custom bus all my NMEA0183 instruments
(VHF, Radar, the ruder position) and on a second bus my NMEA2000
instrument (wind) . Then connect the NMEA2000 bus instrument to the
DMK as per the manual (NMEA 2000 Drop Cable) , connect the NMEA0183
to the DMK orange cable and finally the SEATALK ng bus to the red
wire as well as the black for the power. Also, do I have to connect
the GPS output to the Raymarine ng or any other bus to get the GPS
data transmitted to the instruments and the IPAD?
