Give it another 10 years and everything will be plug n play with NMEA 2000.

Amazing to think that with the advances in electronics and the relatively straightfoward connectivity in the PC market that no-one thought to include plug-compatability into NMEA 0183 (or indeed didn't make the standard so good that proprietary systems weren't needed).

Ahh but thats not how these standards come about. They are agreed by committees where everyone (or at least most people) have to agree from various manufacturers. On the otherhand in the PC world, a small number of big guys can force a de-facto standard. There isn't one dominant supplier of marine electronics to do that.
