Re: NMEA 2K Network Problems (Garmin GMI 10/Airmar DST800/GPS 19X (NMEA0183))
Oh I see, I think it's to do with noise loops.
Well some of the MFDs make a big thing of the NMEA 0183/2000 repeater function, so there must be a way to do it right (meaning they take 0183 data in, and output it in 2000 form)
Lots of MFD's can translate between NMEA 0183/2000, my Furuno NN3D MFD does that.
But Garmin say that the GMI 10 can't do this (Translate)-
You also can get NMEA 2000 Gateway's like this - have one connected to my autopilot and N2K network.
