Furuno MFDBB black box does not boot anymore - upgrade to new TZT2 black box and TZT3


Ralph Heilig
 

after working more then 10 years without any problem, my furuno MFDBB black box stopped working. For a couple of days, I could restart it for a few minutes, but now no more signal after booting.
Pochon (the company that installs all instruments for AMEL ) suggested be to replace the hardware with the new TZT3 display 12 inches at the cockpit and the TZT2 black box at the chart table to keep the existing screen.

Has anyone already done this upgrade? In what problems did you run? I heard that I might need a interface for the radar and some  NMEA 183 - 2000 converter (Hydra 3000, GPS). Also the TZT3 display in the cockpit has some different dimensions than the old MFD12. It does look a litte complicated (tranfer of the charts to the new system can only be done by furuno etc..)

Any experiece or suggestion would be helpful!
