Sorry, wiser heads than mine set it up. When we bought the boat they were supposed to be linked, and were but not functioning. The broker seemed aware of this and had an experienced captain on the sea trials and he sorted it out. The problem was the "names". You had to have the right "name" entered in both units, so the units could recognise each other and grant permission to link to the name. I remember that he had to alter the name of one or the other and then it was good. Clearly that is a key. The other thing is there is an item between the two which is driven by 120v so I have to have my 120v inverter on for the link to function. I had a new radar installed and the fitter could't understand why this was done but he left it as is saying, its working lets not mess with that. He could not see why 12 v couldn't be used. I am many things but an electronics expert I am not. If you want me to I could talk to him to get more information. He has retired now but he lives locally. To add to the conversation we have, and have had for all our ownership, a full range of Raymarine ST 60+ instruments and auto helm. They do all we want,
