Default Garmin 4008 interfaced to Icom 504

Tom , Anyone..can you help

The 504 screen has GPS lat/lon information showing,however when I want to answer a postion request the 504 still makes me verify the lat/lon information. The 504 instructions state if there is a GPS connection to the radio it should skip directly to a postion report output screen, Is it the GPS nmea 0183 sentence GLL (6) status (A) data valid (V) data invalid , or is it in the ICOM 504 software. ICOM was not helpful

If you don't have the 504 set to Auto Ack to answer a position request you will have to press menu button, rotate the selector to "pos report reply" the push the dial to select it, then rotate the selector dial to the name of the person replying to then push the dial to select the name. After you do that you will get a screen thay say's reply ready at which time you push the selector dial to transmit your reply.

To view all the NMEA data coming into the 504 from your Garmin push the Selector dial in. You will see this screen.
