I have a suite of Nexus NX2 instruments networked with the FDX server -- my set up includes two Multi control display units, a digital wind display unit, with wired wind, depth, and speed transducers, as well as the HPC compass, and an MOB button. I like the system very much, I have found it to be very powerful, providing access to a lot of useful data. I am contemplating adding the analog steer pilot instrument and perhaps a navigator or another multi instrument...

I do not have any experience with the Nexus autopilot; rather I have a Raymarine SmartPilot X5 tillerpilot GP, to which I feed wind data from the Nexus FDX server -- you can program what NMEA sentences the Nexus server sends out, which allows you to send wind data multiple times per cycle, and that seems to work fairly well.
