  • Commented on NMEA wind data: Will this Work?
    My system as described above has worked very well. At present true wind is derived from water speed as well as apparent wind speed and direction, but I can change it to use SOG. As I sail in non tidal...
  • Commented on Garmin GMI 10 has lost one page
    Solved it! With a lot of trial and error. I found out that for any page to be available as a page on a custom instrument type it has to be set up on the appropriate non custom instrument type,...
  • Posted Garmin GMI 10 has lost one page to Panbo Forum
    I have two Garmin GMI 10 displays on my NMEA 2000 system. I have set both of them up as custom instruments with a variety of wind, water and surface pages. One page that I like is the neat compass...
  • Commented on NMEA 2K Network Problems (Garmin GMI 10/Airmar DST800/GPS 19X (NMEA0183))
    Reference Bill's post above. The Garmin GMi 10 came in two versions. Early ones required the power connections to be made using the power/data cable, and later ones are NMEA2000 powered. If the unit in question is a later one,...
  • Commented on B&G Triton, first look's good
    I would like to update my two Tritons to get the magnified wind screen that is in version 2.6, but I don't have a Navico Group plotter. I do have an NMEA 2000 connected Advansea T56 plotter with a card...
  • Commented on NMEA 2K Network Problems (Garmin GMI 10/Airmar DST800/GPS 19X (NMEA0183))
    I cannot see your diagram, but query whether you have connected the wind sensor? If you have, then you should use its cable as a backbone, with its inline termination resistor between cable and the actual sensor.. You don't need...
  • Commented on Boat Speed Calibration Problem
    Thank you. I have found the answer. It was just a question of navigating the menus correctly. the answer is: Menu, Setup, NMEA2000 Setup, Device List, Airmar DST200, Config, Calibrate Water Speed. You can also set keel offset and temperature...
  • Posted Boat Speed Calibration Problem to Panbo Forum
    I have my new NMEA2000 system up and running with a mix of Garmin GMI 10 and B&G Triton displays. Boat speed information is provided by an Airmar transducer model dst800 supplied by B&G. It over-reads speed by almost 10%....
  • Commented on NMEA wind data: Will this Work?
    IT WORKS! Once I was able to test it, with someone spinning the log impeller it was clear that it is all OK....
  • Commented on Linking a VHF to a Chartplotter
    Dan, I have connected it, but did so before seeing your reply. I wrote down what I did, but left it on the boat. As far as I remember I connected the VHF Input + to the plotter NMEA 1...
  • Posted Linking a VHF to a Chartplotter to Panbo Forum
    I have a Standard Horizon Quest GX1500E DSC VHF and an Advansea T56 chartplotter. What I want to achieve is sending the GPS position information to the VHF from the Chartplotter and enabling the VHF to send the position of...
  • Commented on NMEA wind data: Will this Work?
    So far so Good! I have installed & connected the NMEA2000 network and the Actisense Gateway, and the new instruments are displaying Apparent wind speed & direction. I cannot yet check True windspeed & direction because the boat is on...
  • Commented on NMEA wind data: Will this Work?
    Thank you very much. I am just about to buy the rest of the NMEA 2000 kit and will probably buy a complete set of instruments including a mast head unit because that is the cheapest way to go, but...
  • Commented on NMEA wind data: Will this Work?
    What a helpful forum this is. Thank you both. I too had struggled to find online B&G manuals, and Ben's link above has solved that problem. I did put my query to B&G and the answer that I have from...
  • Posted NMEA wind data: Will this Work? to Panbo Forum
    Please excuse a newbie who is struggling to figure out exactly how these things work. I want to keep my totally reliable old VDO wind masthead units and have found that the only NMEA 0183 sentence that the VDO wind...
