    B&G H3000 cpu usb driver

    There is a link to it on the BG website. http://www.bandg.com/en-GB/Products/H3000-CPU/Main-Processor-USB-Driver/ It will only run on 32 bit system. (XP) If you want to run it on 64 bit you have to get a serial cable and adapter. I have one if you need it.

    The Cape Flyer goes from Boston South Station to Hyannis. A little out of the way but may save a few bucks? Maybe not. Uber a $1 per mile? What do they have a pedal car? If you factor in the return that is 50 cents a mile?

    Garmin Chartplotter networking.

    I tried to hook the 2 units together with a NEMA 2K cable. Neither recognizes each other. I used 2 NEMA 2K drop cables with a coupling. Will this work or do i need a backbone cable? Garmin support is useless, they tell me to rip everything out and buy new stuff.

    Thanks for the explanation. Think they would come up with an interface box to tie the two together to get thru the transition years. Not sure how tough that would be? I have some very old windows programs that still run on my Windows 10 machine.

    Garmin Chartplotter networking.

    I bought a new Garmin chart plotter for my helm station and hooked into my 5 year old Garmin plotter down below with the Garmin Marine Network cable. (looks like cat 5) The chart plotters will not share information with each other, Garmin tells me they won't talk to each other over the network because the one down below is too old. They both have NEMA 2000 connectors. If I hooked them together with the NEMA 2000 should they then share info? Garmin could not give me an answer.

    Garmin SailAssist

    I just got a new Garmin Plotter with SailAssist. Anyone tried the start line feature or use Laylines? Seems like it would need the boat polars to be accurate?

    Instrument covers

    I don't have the cover but I have one of these. Only 1 season of use. I have a mast mount bracket for it also. Whats it worth?
