Maxsea Talk to Raymarine 7001

Maxsea Talk to Raymarine 7001

by S/V BeBe » Sun Sep 12, 2010 2:19 am

I had this all figured out, connected and working...then had a problem and had to reload Windows XP, etc.

I have Maxsea 10.3.2.1 and a Raymarine 7001+. I am using a serial connection to the Raymarine 7001 and using Autopilot/NMEA 183 Repeater out of Maxsea. Everything is wired correctly. Maxsea Preferences are set to NMEA Talker = "GP" and Echo is ON. Baud Rate is 4800 and DTR Flow control type is set to Handshake. The COM port Device settings match Maxsea's settings for Baud, Sopt Bits, Parity, etc.

The Raymarine 7001+ is set up to receive and display Depth and other NMEA inputs.

The Raymarine 7001+ is not receiving the sentences.

Someone tell me what I am forgetting.

FYI, the problem was I had a "slightly bad" USB wire between my Digi Edgeport4 and the computer. It was passing signals only one-way i.e. from instruments into the computer via serial connections the Edgeport4...it was not passing signals out from the computer through the Edgeport4 to the NMEA "IN" on the Raymarine 7001+.

It took a lot of time to find this problem.

It was aggravating for me, but hope this will help someone in the future.
