The great advantage as far as I see it is much simpler wiring. No tiddly fragile wires to join together and no worrying about baud rates or wire colours. N2K has to be the way forward for setting up and programming devices connected on the network too.

We don't have an N2K port, the Seatalk 2 is now taken too, so it is going to have to be NMEA 0183.

You can add multiple devices to Seatalk 2

Once you have converted the E to C and bought a hub along with power cable, yes. Not worth it. The AIT1000 will plug straight in - or at least that's the theory!
