Seatalk to Seatalk NG

Has anyone done a Seatalk/SeatalkNG instrument installation? My wind system and plotter/radar is seatalk; the Autopilot head is seatalk NG. I'm looking at the various installation configurations that Raymarine shows but it seems like the best way would be to use SeatalkNG to connect to the course computer and then adapt to get Seatalk data at the control head. I plan on using the adapter cable do this (an NG cable with seatalk on the other end); or do I need the "Seatalk to NG adapter kit" (5-port NG connector with seatalk input). Ideally I'd like to be able to set course via either wind instruments or sailing to a waypoint on the plotter. Is another option to connect the seatalk instruments to the course computer in parallel since it has both seatalk and NG inputs? I have an extra long seatalk cable I could do this with if needed.

Which specific instruments do you have besides the x5 ? Which Chartplotter?

Re: Seatalk to Seatalk NG

ST60+ for all the instruments (Depth, Speed, Wind, Rudder); Chartplotter/Radar is a Pathfinder Series RL-80CRC+ (LCD) w/Seatalk; GPS is Raystar 125+. In reading the plotter manual it says that it can provide navigate to waypoint data via AP (but not sure if it sends seatalk data or HSB2).

Should the GPS data go to the course computer directly or should it be attached to the chartplotter directly? I'm thinking plotter in case the course computer goes down.

Re: Seatalk to Seatalk NG

You have to have the 5 port converter, no other way around it.
Once you get it then it's just plug and play for the 60+'s to the NG.

Go to RM site, they have nice network diagrams. If you have more than one NG device you'll need a network hub (different 5 hub piece).

I have seen a network diagram where the p60 control head goes from NG directly to an ST60+ device; then the whole (non-NG) Seatalk network is then routed to the course computer. I'm just curious if the NG control device connected directly to the course computer is a better installation since NG has better data transmission speed.

I have the NG to ST cable (not the 5-port/adapter cable set). It has a white NG connector on one end and a ST connector on the other end. My question is will this work to get ST-60+ data, GPS and plotter data over to the course computer? Will the p60 not pass ST data over to the NG backbone?
