LOL, OK, should not have implied ALL other vendors, but my cursory search
found this this N2K to USB cable for your (?) B&G triton/navico/simrad.
Looks like its used in conjunction with a laptop and free dowloadable
software.  You can also use a MFD,but are not forced to.

The Windows 8 software tool

I also checked ICOM, Furuno...

It did appear that Airmar required one of their weather stations as an
interface to update their sensors,but I did not explore this,nor how other
manufacturers update their Airmar-made sensors.

I'm sure there are situations where manufacturers attempt to promote a
proprietary, closed-shop approach to updating but most of those i found did

Other vendors don't take this approach?  Sure they do.  I've got B&G Triton
displays - can't do any updating on them without a B&G MFD.  Same is true
with all that I'm aware of.  And I'd love to buy a Maretron ultrasonic tank
level sender, it is N2K - but to calibrate it I also have to buy one of
their displays, which I have no other use for.
