The ACR system is nmea0183 @ 38,400 baud. So, N2K will not really enter into your install. Look for an open nmea port that has a speed option for 38400. You'll be good to go.

Most of the time a Class B is used where there is a lot of LARGE vessel traffic, i.e., Seattle area. So, I haven't had a lot of request for those around here. I've probably done 8 Class B installs.

HOLY SHIZZLE!

Yup, you guys are clearly the targeted audience for that class B AIS.

(Very well illustrated, I might add)

pm me for specific questions you might have.
