Can the Zeus2 act as a nmea terminator? 

I can disconnect everything except wind gear as I only have one terminator. 

And the upgrade still fails. 

No. THE Zeus 2 is just a device,  same as any other. If you can't do it, see my post above, navico can fo it at Albany, or I can do it if you can get it to me.

I got a terminator (thanks Bradz) and still can't get it to upgrade with just the Zeus2 and p9 on the bus.   Just sits at 0%.

Will call Navico tomorrow,and reach out to you IT if they are unhelpful...

Thanks all.

2 terminators, right? One on each end of the bus, and the 2 devices on Ts and drop cables, plus the one for bus power....

Thanks IT. Yep.

I have a 4 port bus.

Connected to one end of the 4port bus is a terminator. (thanks Bradz) this usually has the wind sensor.

Connected to the other end of the 4port bus is a backbone cable which has two tees and a terminator on the very end of it.  It runs from about the engine to parallel with the mast. 

Power, zeus, p9 are connected directly to the 4 port bus with their drop cables

There's nothing connected to the two tees at the end of the backbone extender, these usually have the p9 and dst800 on them... 

I had planned to take terminator from the backbone extender and connect it to the four port bus to eliminate the extender cable but turns out the male/female is incompatible... 

Looking at network device list on the Zeus, it shows the p9 and the Zeus (x4) only so it seems to see what it should.

are you doing it via sd card?


The Zeus2 has Internet, at some point in the last few months it has detected the update and every time I turn it on it advises of an upgrade to be performed..

Used the sd card method and it upgraded.

Seems to have lost it's calibration. 

What's the difference between "auto" and "auto lock" in the calibration menu?
