Electronics Hookup and Configuration


DISCUSSION

Is Chart Navigator Pro compatible with NMEA 2000 instruments?
Not directly.

At this time, Chart Navigator Pro relies solely on the NMEA 0183 interface - the most widely-used standard for integrating marine electronics.

However, there are gateway devices that will connect NMEA 0183 devices (such as a laptop running Chart Navigator Pro) to a NMEA 2000. Chart Navigator Pro is compatible with these gateways.
