Nobeltec Trident & Furuno MaxSea
In the middle of a major electronics upgrade. Have already installed a furuno MFD12 on flybridge with hub, fish finder, 12kW radar, GPS receiver and now planning for the pilot house. Definitely want two separate systems here. I also have Nobeltec trident (put on a laptop to get our boat home a couple years ago) and Nobeltec smaller radar so this is what I'm thinking...
Install two solid state drive PC's in PH each with dual DVI outputs, install second GPS antenna (old one was 0183) for Nobeltec allow the only item shared by two systems to be the heading sensor. Purchase furuno MaxSea then install both programs on each PC. Both Nobeltec and furuno allow for installation on two computers.
PH will have two monitors. Run a DVI from each PC to each monitor, like; PC-1's DVI-1 to monitor A, PC-1's DVI-2 to monitor B, PC-2's DVI-1 to monitor A, PC-2's DVI-2 to monitor B.
This allows me to share furuno between MFD12 and MaxSea and should one system crash we have a complete backup.
What am I missing?
