Furuno NavNet3D: AIS over NMEA 2000 - NOT!

After tearing my hair out for two weeks, and even talking with numerous AIS challenged Furuno Techs, I'd thought I'd pass this self discovered information along...

For those of you have purchased a Furuno NavNet3D MFD, and who also plan on piping your AIS into your NMEA 2000 backbone system (either a NMEA 2000 AIS or 0183 AIS via a NMEA 2000 converter), it can't be done.

As of this date, Furuno's NavNet3D MFD's cannot process NMEA 2000 AIS PGN's. Instead, you'll have to run a separate 0183 data cable to the MFD. Pretty damn stoopid IMO for a state of the art unit like the NavNet3D.

Thank you for sharing...

You may find this article informative; Panbo: The Marine Electronics Hub: NMEA 0183 over Ethernet, on Mar Azul

(I don't know for sure, as I have not read it recently)

i have installed a AIS transponder with both NMEA 2000 and two NMEA 0183 ports to come around this...
The technical specs is clear on this...
What Furuno says is that AIS over NMEA 2000 was not defined when these units where designed. subsequent software releases has not changed this..
we are still waiting for the a new sw supposed to be available in December (2012
Furuno has not told anything about the content of this release.

A more serious flaw (for me at least) is the lack of support for AIS transponders and AIS beacons - nothing about this from Furuno.

Here is a link to the list of supported NMEA 2000 PGNs http://www.furunousa.com/ProductDocu...A2K%20PGNs.pdf
