I use a Seatalk NMEA Bridge mainly to trasmit chartplotter info (SOG, COG,..) to Seatalk network of Raymarine instruments and autopilot.
Since I have got also a old handheld GPS unit (used until now only as spare) I would like to put it in NMEA network as alternative to current energy hungry chatplotter .
My question is:
what happens on NMEA and SeaTalk networks if by mistake I switch ON both GPS when both are on NMEA net?
I'm afraid that I can create a dangerous mismatching on NMEA and then on Seatalk.
Could you foresee this case?
Thanks a lot in advance and Happy new years
