I have a NSS7 and a B&G zeus T8 networked together with ethernet and N2K.

The B&G displays the tidal curves from the navionics card correctly. The NSS7 displays them one hour out.

The time offset input is the same for each plotter and the time is correct on each plotter.

Any ideas where I am going wrong?

My first guess would be one is set for daylight savings time, and the other not. But that's just a complete guess.

Both have same time offset.

I certainly could be wrong -- Garmin? -- but I don't recall an MFD with specific daylight savings time corrections. You usually -- or maybe "often" -- have to figure out the actual time offset from UTC for your local time, and then change it when DST changes.

And, sorry Mike, but your problem baffles me. Plus I think it's likely that Navico will not consider it high priority. I believe their policy is not to guarantee compatability between their Simrad, B&G, and Lowrance brands. Even though the systems are often quite compatible, they give the three development teams some latitude and don't slow the update process by testing for interbrand compatibility.

Thanks Ben that's what I feared. Keep up the good work with Panbo.

Have you tried swapping the Navionics card to the other plotter to see if that makes a difference? (I doubt it, buy you never know...)
