B&G H5000 + Garmin Quatix 6 watch + Garmin GNT10

Anyone with experience from the above combination of hardware?

Considering buying the watch and GNT10, but interested in hearing if anyone has experience with letting it play with B&G H5000

I think an articulation of what you are trying to achieve might help.

Not sure what you are asking for, or if it's a question, but I'll try to clarify:
I am considering to use the Garmin Quatix 6, and get NMEA2k to that device from N2k canbus via the Garmin GNT10 on a network dominated by B&G H5000 hardware. I want to know if anyone else has experience or thoughts about this setup.

Hi, my understanding is that you only get the standard NMEA2000 sentences. None of the custom channels work this way. So it is a bit of a disappointment.

Thanks.

I've also heard that it doesn't show the calculated sentences from the H5000 cpu correctly. Like true wind data. Which is even worse.

I bought the watch (for the maps), dropped buying the GNT.

I have just got a Quatix 6 and so far I really like it. It’s got a number of features that the 5 did not have. These include heart rate reading while swimming, the chart feature, and an 02 oxygen sats feature.
You can get all the expedition data Onto the watch using  an actisense USB converter and some Garmin displays which have the ANT protocol. This is similar to what some of the TP52’s do.

Will, 

I received one from Garmin to use at Heineken on the old Mapfre.... I also enjoyed it and started linking it as well.  I am continuing to enjoy it while locked down.  I highly recommend the Quatix 6.
