I am trying to connect st30 speed to st60 multi repeater and st60 wind. When connecting the three "normally" via seatalk, the st30 does not pass speed through water to st60 multi. I found some information that this could be due to st30 using an older version of seatalk1 than that used by St60, see [url]
http://raymarine.ning.com/m/discussion?id=6492755%3ATopic%3A110542 [/url] for a discussion of a similar issue.
My questions are:
1. I need speed though water as nmea (to show in garmin gps). Can the multiplexer convert speed through water data from st30 to nmea? I just wanted to ensure that st30 version of seatalk1 is supported by the multiplexer - because the st60 multi does not repeat the data from the seatalk network.
2. Can the multiplexer help feed speed though water from st30 to st60 wind?
How would that be achieved? Seatalk->nmea->seatalk - with the "overwrite" option as explained on p. 18 in the manual?
Many thanks for your inputs on this issue.

To be honest - I don't know.
I would have said - yes of course - until I read you posting.
I never heard of an "older SeaTalk Version".
We have connected different types of STxx Speed, Wind etc.
But I have never tried a ST30 Speed myself. And since I didn't even know there is something like an "older SeaTalk Version", I just can't confirm that it it working.

Same problem. I juts don't know if the multiplexer understands this strange "old SeaTalk".
If you like, we could just try it.
I could send you a small SeaTalk-NMEA-Link just for testing and than we'll see if it can read ST30 data.
The new season is staring and i just ordered the multiplexer. I will test how it works with st30 speed. I think i saw somewhere that seatalk has 2 commands for speed through water: no.20 and no. 26 if i remember correctly.
