I'm not totally clear on the issue either. Assuming you want to get the MOB AIS position report to your MFD (LOWRANCE elite7)?So you are saying that I dont need to mess with the vhf at all ?
I connect the Lowrance to the Ais via nmea2k 'drop in cable' and all is good ?
That would be amazing.
Don't need VHF in the loop to do that. It's AIS -> NMEA-> Lowrance.
If you have DSC on the MOB1 that is independent of the boat network. The DSC goes out on VHF....
