Replacing my electronics

I would like to learn more about NMEA and IP marine standards. I need to replace my electronics and would like to understanding of the different options on connecting and displaying marine electronics.

Can someone recommend books, mags, and links I can use to get a good understanding of products and techniques to hookup and display information? I have looked at the Raymarine and other manufactures suggestions; I am looking for the next layer of options.

Hi,

A great source for information on marine electronics is panbo:

Panbo: The Marine Electronics Weblog

The latest NMEA standard is NMEA2000. Do a search on that and you will learn a lot.

Good luck,
Barry

Panbo is a great resource.

I'd point out that other than the NMEA 0183 and 2000 standards, most other marine communications protocols are MANUFACTURER SPECIFIC. For instance, while Furuno's NavNet and Garmin Marine Networking equipment are both ethernet based, they are in no way compatible with each other.

If you have an idea of what brand of equipment you're interested in, you might start with the manufacturer's website. If not, Panbo is a good place to start.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Look seriously at the Garmin GMI 10 display/instrument options. You can get Basic Wind, speed, depth for $1200 as a bundled package from West Marine (exclusive). this is a NMEA 2000 system so it can be as basic or as complex as you would like. I just installed this system on my C&C 30 MkII and am blown away by the capability. I personally feel that this is the future of marine electroics.

West Marine also has a great video on their website that describes this system.

Garmin customer service is a model for all others.

Have fun!
