Alan, Willem, and other interested owners.
I spent most of the day talking to various B&G distributors about substituting the Airmar 4500 for a faulty Sonic Speed sensor. Almost half of them told me NO, but I received a YES from a few that I respect.
So, I am reversing myself. I now believe that the Airmar 4500 will work when wired directly to the Hydra 2000 computer's speed input.
I apologize if I misled anyone, but when I experienced Sonic Speed sensor failure on BeBe, I could not find anyone that told me that the 4500 would work. I understand that Airmar had quality issues the first few years of production and this may have been the reason that the respected B&G distributors told me it would not work with the Hydra 2000.
I exchanged emails with Alan Leslie. He has a Airmar 4500 on order and will report to the group when he receives it.
