Good thing too. I don't think the S-H will talk to the A77. I could be wrong though - I often am

I looked at the SH-GX1700e but it was only NMEA 0183, and the A68 is only N2K. I went with a Lowrance Link 8 radio (also with AIS) for that reason. Raymarine A9x and A12x have both NMEA 0183 & 2000 but the A77 only has N2K.

Both correct I'm not interested in having these two talking to each other although I think there is a box for the A77 that will listen to the older nmea

There is a Raymarine SeatalkNG to NMEA 0183 conversion kit available for around 40-50 I think. But as you're going stand alone I'm sure there are much better things to spend that money on! Can't wait to see any updated project pics Biffer!

I fitted the Lowrance Link 8 and then a Raymarine SeatalkNG (STNG) network so it could talk to my A68 - surprisingly it was cheaper to fit the STNG backbone kit and use a STNG to N2K convertor lead than it was the other way round! And if I need to extend the network the STNG components and any STNG/N2K adapter leads are all the same price as the equivalent N2K components.
