AIS and Raymarine RL80C
My set up is about 6 years old now, so its outdated, but works very well. Master RL80C at nav station and slaved unit at helm. Integrated autopilot, radar, depth, speed, temp and sea talk. I've been tempted to upgrade, mostly for the modern superior graphics, but the newer digital equip isn't all compatible. To do the chartplotters requires at least a new radar as well.
I've wanted to add an AIS transmitter/receiver, but can't figure out how to integrate it. Not sure these even existed when this unit was made. I was hoping there was a way to get it into sea talk, at the least.
Anyone have a good direction here?
