sailingdog Considering that some charter fleets have taken up using TackTick instruments, as have some boat manufacturers, I don't think it is much of an issue. The main problem you'd have with other boats in the marina having TackTick instruments is when setting up an installation. You'd have to be far enough away to not have the instruments accidentally network to an adjacent boat. This is also the case if you're adding displays. Aside from that, I don't think there's much of a problem.

Idiens SD - Any idea how many TACKTICKs can share the same marina without interfering with each other?

sailingdog Raymarine's service is spotty...sometimes they're quite good, and others you gotta wonder. I had the ST60 gear on my boat, and got rid of it. The problem wasn't the hardware itself from what I've been able to tell, but the wiring.

Gary M I think the Tic Tac are really nice but I had not thought about any lightning issues? However I have fairly new Raymarine depth and speed instruments so I am looking at Raymarine wind instruments.
I believe that if I go with them then I can hook up the speedo to the wind instruments I can get true wind and direction?

How is the Raymarine quality and service? I think I have heard here that it is not the greatest.

Thanks
Gary

sailingdog Wind, depth, speed and temperature data doesn't really require a high data rate. If you think about it.... updating the wind speed, direction, water speed, depth, and temperature is only a few bytes of data total.

GeorgeB Thanks, I thought that they might have slowed down the baud rate to insure a better capture. My E80 sends data either over a high speed or low speed (NMEA) bus, both wire. I still want those tick tacks.

sailingdog George-

Radio waves travel at about the same speed as electrical signals over wire... no real lag...and they work... Adding additional displays is really simple.

Yeah. I figured re-conectorizing it and Bob's your uncle.
