Question about Raymarine Raychart 520 Plus GPS Receiver
I'm trying to send waypoint from my PC to my Raymarine RC 520. I've tried using SeaClear to send the NEMA 183 "WPL" sentence to my Raymarine E85001 interface connected to the SeaTalk network.
Using the SeaClear's NEMA output monitor I see the sentences going out. I see the NEMA indicator light come on in the E85001 interface (the SeaTalk indicator light is also on). I select "receive waypoint ST/NEMA on the RC 520 but the waypoints don't show up on the waypoint list.
I'm receiving NEMA data in SeClear through the E85001 interface - wind data, depth, GPS. I've tried to send waypoint data from the RC 520 but haven't seen it come into SeaClear on the PC.
I can send WPL from SeaClear to my hand held Garmin using NEMA so I sure SeaClear and the USB to serial device is working.
I've read the RC 520 manual I don't see any special setup for receiving/sending waypoint. I'm selecting the "softkey" menu items to Send/Receive so I don't understand why they don't show up on the RC 520.
I could run a NEMA data cable from the PC to the RC 520 but SeaTalk is there already and based on everything I can find it should work.
Has anyone made this same type of connection? Was there anything special in making it work?
I'd appreciate any troubleshooting tips.

You will need to hook up direct. Seatalk wont handle a waypoint download, but the chartplotter will accept the data directly into the NMEA in port. All other data, like wind depth and latlon are handled by seatalk
