Default NMEA V2.3 sentence question

Well this is interesting. I have a Garmin 2006C and a Furuno Navnet 1833C radar/plotter. The NMEA ouputs from each are hooked up through an on/off/on switch that allows me to select which GPS unit is supplying signal to my autopilot, DSC radios, and Yamaha FuelManagement gauge. The Yamaha gauge has never worked properly with the Garmin output, though everything else does. I finally ended up hard wiring it to the Furuno.

Has anyone ever seen the Yamaha input specs? Even my dealer couldn't find it anywhere in their service documentation -- just says "connect to NMEA output from GPS".

The Furuno menu allows you to choose NMEA version and turn on or off sentences one at a time
