Lowrance Elite NMEA input?
Anybody got any experience of NMEA INPUT on the lowrance elite 5? It looks from the manual that it isn't possible but I'm sure i've seen somewhere that it is possible. Basically, I was going to go for a Standard Horizon GX1600 and wanted to output the DSC positions to the plotter as I'll be out with other boats fairly regularly. Does anybody know if this is possible?
Other options would be to get the Garmin Echomap 50 DV which takes a NMEA input but doesn't have the dual sonar function. Second option is to get a lowrance link 8 radio and elite 7 fish finder and set up a NMEA 200 network. Obviously this will cost a good few hundred quid more and is probably a little overkill for my needs. Any thoughts on the above would be appreciated.
