Bill Kneller is in the process of a B&G upgrade this winter and really knows this stuff just as well.
There is a detailed article on my J/109 B&G refit in the February 2018 edition of Practical Sailor Magazine, titled "Testing the B&G Zeus3 Nav System". It requires a subscription. The article is a good starting point.
I see this older article I wrote about upgrading to NMEA2000 networks is available free and worth a read.

J/109 - Strider
I'm in the process of upgrading everything from a Nexus Server based system to an all B&G system using the H5000 Hercules processor as the brains. You can check out a previous thread at this link on the forum for earlier upgrades I did with some Raymarine stuff. I'll be putting some of that up for sale as soon as I can take pictures and set prices for the used equipment. Check this thread on the Sailing Anarchy forum describing my current upgrade.
ps - the Newer Raymarine Axiom displays running Lighthouse III do NOT have the sailing features that Lighthouse II had. It is geared toward the larger powerboat market. If you upgrade using Raymarine, make sure it will run the Lighthouse II software.
This Sailing Anarchy thread is extremely valuable. It is good to know that the Type 1 Linear is compatible with B&G Pilot. Also, it looks like the rudder angle sensor would be an easy swap if switching. As always, thanks for the documentation of all these changes. BTW, hearing really good things about from a few friends about the wireless WS320...
