Customer Question
I recently purchased a...

I recently purchased a Tiara 5800 Sovran with a full Raymarine electronics set up. The Vessel is a 2013 year model - manufactured that same year. Would the existing cables currently installed in the vessel allow me to connect one of your new highspeed displays? If I installed one with either new cabling or using the existing cable could I connect to the depth sounder, radar and camera setup? Thx.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Electronics Specialist should know?

Thx - that should do it.

S​ince your Tiara was built after 2005 or so, it should have an NMEA 2000 network installed to feed information between the various electronics. Newer system also use this standard so it is quite likely you can upgrade all the parts without changing the network backbone.
