Lowrance HDS-5 or 7 displaying AIS via NMEA 0183?
I am trying to get my Lowrance HDS-5M to display AIS targets that the Standard Horizon GX2150 is putting out via NMEA 0183.
Having searched the forums, what I have gleaned is that this should definitely work, or should definitely NOT work, depending on who you believe.
So is there anyone WITH a HDS-5 or 7 that is showing AIS data via NMEA 0183?
That would be nice to know, that at least it SHOULD work.
The Lowrance documentation (FAQ, manuals, etc) is hopeless.
