Looking for practical ideas, if what l want to do can be done .
When I bought Duty free, Farr 1220, it had Raymarine gear on it ---I was given the opportunity to get some B&G gear (Zeus Touch 7/Triton display).
The current Auto helm is an Raytheon ST6000plus , works really well and l am pleased with it, but it was not and is not integrated with the wind gear .
I am sufficiently aware that they have different operating systems (if that's the correct word ) but my question is ----Can l integrate my B&G wind gear with the Raymarine/Raytheon ST6000--if so , how so.
The second question -----With putting in the new B&G gear(integrate depth/log ) transducer we chose not to take out the older ST60 Depth instruments/transducer --for the love of me ,I just cannot figure out the B&G fishfinder option and make it produce anything l can understand (no doubt operator error )----The question is whether the ST 60 transducer can be utilised as a fish finder , if l buy a new/second hand display/head unit which is compatible. Its currently used as a back up depth sounder which l don't need, so was hoping to get some use out of the transducer/wiring that's in place --I have tried to get an answer from L&B on their customer enquiry line but have had no reply.
Looking for any advice /ideas/suggestions from you very knowledgeable people .
