NMEA Starter Kit or ethernet cable only

Postby Gator » Fri Sep 16, 2011 9:18 am

Ken - just got my second HDS-5 and want to network the two together. Do I need the NMEA or just the ethernet?? I am only hooking the two together to share waypoints.

I am sure Ken will be along soon. But, I have been doing some research since I am getting two HDS installed this week. You only need the ethernet. The NMEA is only needed if you are using outside devices like sensors or External GPS antenna.

Sorry for the delay in my response, I was at Clear Lake over the weekend. For Waypoint sharing you can do this just fine with the ethernet network.
