I'm looking to do a little rewiring, anybody have any 3 prong seatalk cables laying around? Looking for:
1. One that goes from back of E series to seatalk plug(part #D230?)
2. One that converts RayGPS 125 bare wires to seatalk plug(R55006)
3. One that is a seatalk pigtail(part # D229?)
Would rather not pay retail but will pay. ;)

You're right, the Seatalk junction box and cables are pricey. Usually, you can find them on ebay for much less. Don't be intimidated by Seatalk. It's a very simple electronic bus. You can get a junction box from Radio Shack with a Euro style connector for about $5.00 which is exactly the same technology but easier to work with if you get a bigger size. And wire the Raystar 125 directly into the box and forget the cable for it.
