I plan on using the adapter cable do this (an NG cable with seatalk on the other end); or do I need the "Seatalk to NG adapter kit" (5-port NG connector with seatalk input). Ideally I'd like to be able to set course via either wind instruments or sailing to a waypoint on the plotter. Is another option to connect the seatalk instruments to the course computer in parallel since it has both seatalk and NG inputs? I have an extra long seatalk cable I could do this with if needed.
Which specific instruments do you have besides the x5 ? Which Chartplotter?
