Re: Help choosing a new MFD and Radar needed
If you're headed for NFLD but don't quite make it, I'd recommend the Brad D'Or lakes in Cape Breton. But I did grow up near there so I'm pretty biased. Georgian Bay is pretty nice sailing though it'll be a few months before I can get back on the water.
Looks like you're right about the limited compatibility for the broadband radars. The Lowrance guide shows just a few Lowrance and Simrad plotters and 1 B&G plotter as options. There's a radar interface box required for the Simrad and B&G plotters. Too bad that interface box isn't more generic.
My marina's running a seminar with Raymarine in a few weeks, so I'll definitely be bugging them about whether I'll be able to get 2-way communication between the MFD & autopilot. It could be a different answer with the c95 and C90W. I'm trying to come up with my list of questions for them, like what I'll have to change if my course computer dies.
I hadn't come across the Panbo forum yet, thanks for the link!
