Welcome to the Raymarine Technical Forum Terry,

1. The length of NMEA 0183 sentences will vary based upon the type of sentence and the data contained therein.  Raymarine's E-Series Widescreen MFDs are designed to support NMEA 0183 v3.01 sentences received at either 4800 or 38400 BAUD.  Please refer to the NMEA 0183 v3.01 specification for the detailed format specification for each NMEA 0183 sentence.

2. Raymarine recommends that a NMEA 0183 v2.1 or later 5-10Hz stabilized heading input (ex. E12102 Pathfinder Smart Heading System (retired), S1G/S2G/S3G, etc.) rather than 1Hz SeaTalk non-stabilized instrument heading inputs (ex. ST40/60+, ST80 Active Compass Sensor (M92649)) be used for radar and other features requiring heading input.  Accuracy and damping of heading data is critical to several features requiring heading data.  Raymarine recommends that accurate 5Hz or greater heading data be supplied to any system using using any of (but not limited to) the following Radar and Chart application features:

  • AIS Targets Displayed within the Radar Application
  • Waypoints Displayed within the Radar Application
  • North Up or Course Up orientiation within the Radar Application
  • Radar Overlay within the Chart Application
  • Heading Vector within the Chart Application
  • Vessel Icon Orientation within the Chart Application (will default to COG when no heading data source is detected)

It is recommended that customer's regularly check the accuracy of products supplying heading data to the system and perform any calibration/alignment required to provide accurate heading tho the system.  

Following the retirement of the Pathfinder Smart Heading Sensor, the T70132 Airmar H2183 Heading Sensor w/NMEA 0183 Cable has been recommended for such purposes.  The part number for the heading sensor alone is A92185 and the part number for its NMEA 0183 Cable is A80131.

dragonfly 7 transducer

I just purchased a ranger reata and would like to replace the depthfinder with a dragonfly 7.The old garmin used a puck style transducer in the bottom of the boat rather than mounting the transducer on the transom.Can I mount the dragonfly transducer the same way? Or does it need to mount on the transom?See More

MFD suggestions (mute/ignore AIS warnings, NMEA output sentences)

May I add the following suggestions:a) In a future SW update for the e127, include the possibility to AUTO-IGNORE/MUTE AIS warnings/error messages, incl. the ones generated by the AIS950 for the "External EPFS lost" condition.b) In a future SW update for MFDs/the e127, include HDT and ROT output sentences. This information is available (or can be calculated) at the e127 end but cannot presently be supplied as NMEA output sentences - much wanted for use with the AIS950.Thanks.See More

ST6002 AutoPilot issue

When I engage the autopilot, it will initially engage, but will disengage after about one minute. I then get an error:  Current limit.  I have checked  all connection in the computer and all are good.  Wiring splices are soldered and tight. Anyone have an idea what my problem may be?  See More
