Default Quetion for Thom

Thom,
I am hooking up my Furuno 600L to talk with my Garmin 182C.
My question is when hooking up the green wire from my furuno you stated it goes to battery, do you mean to the positive + side 12 volt current?

Thanks.

John.M.

I am assuming you have a Furuno data cable that you are hooking up to the data port on the 600L (not the transducer port). These cables have two pairs of wires that are relevant to your interface. The yellow/green pair are NMEA data receive and the white/black pair are NMEA data trasnmit. The green and white wires are the positive.

If your intent is to interface the 600L with your GPS NO WIRES GO TO THE BATTERY!!! You would probably fry your sounder if you tried.

The white wire on the Garmin is the NMEA Data Receive and the blue wire is NMEA Data Transmit. The black wire is the ground for both. Unlike the Furuno, the NMEA connections on the Garmin do not have paired + and - connectors.

So first connect the two negative wires (yellow and black) from the Furuno cable to the black ground wire on the Garmin power/data cable. Then connect the white data receive from the Garmin to the black data transmit from the Furuno. Finally, connect the green data receive from the Furuno to the blue data transmit from the Garmin.

The final step is to go to the system/comm menu of the Garmin and set up the ports to received/trasnmit NMEA per your manual.

If this is unclear, do a search and you will find lots of posts on interfacing Garmin and Furino units.

Thanks Saltdog,

The black wire should be white I think.

Good catch -- I should have read my own postmore carefully! But I did give the raw data of color assignments.
