Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Maybe a bit OT. But I was wondering if it was possible to mix and match MFD across manufacturer’s. i.e. Garmin MFD with Raymarine instruments.
    I was hoping to use a large NAV station mounted MFD as a monitor for a laptop/marine PC running a nav program. Capt. wants to stick with Raymarine to avoid a new learning curve ahead of a RTW cruise. Raymarine told me they don’t support HDMI in.
    In a previous review here of a Garmin MFD it was specifically mentioned that Garmin could be used as I envision.
    So is what I am suggesting possible or asking for trouble.

    Where did you see the information about CZone support? I don’t see it mentioned on the product page or news release.

    Gary, it’s in the Sensors & Peripherals section of the specs:
    Digital Switching — Yes – Empirbus & C-Zone compatible [C-Zone integration available in future Lighthouse 3 software update]
    Note the future LH3 caveat but in fact I believe that Raymarine already quietly provided LH2 C-Zone integration for Boston Whaler so they know what’s involved.

    Ah! I see it now. Thanks!
