Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Nav Instruments on SM
Peter, I did replace my Hydra330 FFD which had no NMEA In/output by an Hercules2000 FFD which has the NMEA connection. It is enough and it has been working fine for five years. I connected it to my NMEA network allowing in particular to sail to the wind with my ST7002 A/P and get magnetic heading from it as well .toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
If Tinley has no solution you can try at Myles Electronic who supllied mewith this Hercules.

Tell her hi from Bill s/v BeBe.
I think that Sarah is the best one to answer specific questions, but I thought that even early model FFDs had NEMA 0183 OUT & IN. Sarah will tell you. Tinley will repair many B&G components and sometimes has refurbished components for sale. In my experience, Raymarine is great for autopilots, but I believe they are outclassed in most other categories.
