Run the RM EVO with separate ram and compass with wireless remote. No complaints. Also use an ST 2000 With a wired seatalk remote as a back up. 2RNIs and a Three Kings and still trucking. Best to keep it simple in my view so that when things don't work you at least have a chance of repairing.

Anyone using a TP 22 or 32 with a Simrad MFD? (Simnet not 0183). Does the built in autopilot function of the MFD come up on screen when the TP is plugged in? I think this only works on Simnet /N2K not 0183. Going to try to get our 0183 anemometer to talk to the TP via the MFD. The wind speed and angle comes up on the MFD so should work. Buggar all info on line.

Yes. Simnet is N2k for all intents and purposes. The mfd software will identify the TP as an AP, and those controls will be enabled.

Excellent, thanks Matt. (Simrad couldn't confirm that)

external compass is a huge improvement, 

 

What do you think of the Airmar & Maretron compass/heading sensors?

Are you 100% on this? I thought the N2k on the TP series only  did heading outputs and a couple other little bits on n2k but no control from MFD, ie no +1 +10 etc from a navico MFD

 

I hooked one up breifly as a test and could't get any AP functions to show..

 

Seriously hoping I am wrong, but I want to see it with my own eyes before I shell out for a new TP and p9...

Yep, I can confirm it does (on mine at least).  I have a TP-32, P9 and Vulcan 7 all connected via N2K and can control steer to heading from the MFD i.e. +-1 and +-10.  You can also set a way-point (or route) and enable navigate mode from the MFD.

my oh my. That is the ideal setup - I have a Zeus2.  

 

What about the other AP options on the MFD  - different turn types etc?
