I installed the NMEA Paddlewheel, conncted it to my Hydra 330 and to my NMEA multiplexer, now I have SOG on the Hydra System. The only "tricky" thing was the baud rate of the second output of the multiplexer, per default it is set to highspeed (38400) 4800 is correct for NMEA Paddlewheel. But now it is up and running. I am quite happy with the solution, thank you for this tip.
The only thing I do not understand, the Speed on the FFD's shows about 1kn higher thanthe analog instrument. Can I configure them separately? In the manuel I only found how to configure speed for the hydra system, not for singles instruments.

It sounds like you may be looking for another option...
One option is to display SOG on the analog B&G cockpit gauges and on the Hydra FFD rather than SOW by installing a NMEA paddlewheel.
The NMEA Paddlewheel device connects to a data port on the GPS, reads the GPS NMEA sentences and finds SOG. It then translates that SOG into B&G language as SOW. If you are a sailing purest, SOW may be important to you if you must know how much current is impacting your SOG, but remember SOG is what really counts and gets you where you are going.
This solution may be the best for you. It is simple to install: 2 wires connect to 12VDC at the Hydra toggle switch, 2 wires connect to NMEA data OUT on your GPS and 2 wires connect to the B&G computer at the same place that sonic speed or paddlewheel connect.
The NMEA Paddlewheel converts NMEA from either a GPS or electromagnetic log to a paddlewheel output suitable for connecting directly to an instrument system, such as a B&G Hydra/Hercules.
