Brookhouse NMUX AIS-C with Sea Talk
I have a Brookhouse NMUX AIS-C with Sea Talk and USB option, which I think is great. I also have a Raymarine 85001 SeaTalk-NMEA 0183 converter, which I no longer use.
On Sea Talk is a RayStar 125 GPS, ST60 Wind, ST60 Speed, DMS250 depth, and a C80 MFD
NMEA 0183 talkers are AIS(@38400), DSC VHF and backup Garmin GPS, Fast Heading Sensor, and a PC with RayTech RNS.
NMEA 0183 4800 baud listeners are the Simrad WP30 (will sail to wind or WP), DSC VHF, and the Garmin 176c.
NMEA 0183 38400 baud listeners are the C80 and the PC via USB.
Everything SeaTalk and NMEA gets to the C80 and the PC with the RayTech RNS. The Garmin gets everything except AIS/FHS @4800.
The SeaTalk RayStar 125 is the primary GPS with an auto fallover in the NMUX that uses the NMEA Garmin GPS fix if the RayStar fails.
The C80 or the PC can drive the boat, the 176 is a bit to old to drive..
You can pace or filter the data as needed.
It really was a great solution when I had this kind of issue.
