Can the NGT-1 configure other manufacturer’s devices?
The NMEA 2000 standard has standard methods for changing configuration names and other parameters within their devices. The NGT-1 can alter these in conjunction with the NMEA reader software. Some manufacturers may block these change requests, but most support it.
Some configurations may be done via proprietary PGNs, which means that only their devices and software can be used to configure their products. Whilst we aim to be as open as possible and support as many user applications as we can, there are certain scenarios that we can’t support unfortunately.
