I can not input HDG data from a standalone Raymarine ST4000+ autopilot (flux gate compass). It is connected to the DMK box at RED TO BROWN, YELLOW TO RED and SHIELD TO GROUND as shown in the reference manual example "connect to the SeaTalk backbone". I am receiving data on NMEA 0183 port A and B, no problems.

    Hello Fred,

    Thanks for the input, we are working the problem and will send out an update to the firmware shortly. One great feature of our box is that it will take over the air firmware updates so as we make improvements we can pass them along to all our customers.

    Thanks Kevin. The box is great, I'm patient.

    Hello Fred,

    We have made a couple changes to the box and will be back in production this week. I'll get in touch so we can test the upgrades on your boat.

    Hi Kevin,

    I'm thinking of picking up the DMK with GPS. To confirm: The new SeaTalk update will work with my Raymarine ST50 / ST50+ setup, right?

    You mention changes to the box. I'm in Canada. Should I order from Amazon US (one in stock, presumably not with the changes you're mentioning) or directly from you?

    Im also interested in the GPS version of the DMK pushing location data etc to my ST4000+ autopilot (with ST6002 display) - is this possible ? (I have a chartplotter but its not connected to the auto)

    thanks - Julian

    Getting HDM & HDT from SeaTalk to DMK works great. I don't know about the GPS to SeaTalk interface.
