I am in the process of trying to interface my buddy's FURUNO 1650D Chartplotter to an ICOM 402 VHF for DSC capability.

I have the wire connections needed, nut needed to make sure that that the proper"sentence' was turned on for Port1. I saw the list of sentences that exist, and was curious as to what data they were. Now I have my answer!

BTW- Is there a sentence for "WINNING LOTTERY NUMBERS"?

The Truth is that Saddam has SARS- Severe Acute Regime Shrinkage!

Here's the sentence structure for GLL from the help info in NEMATOOL program.

GLL - GEOGRAPHIC POSITION - LATITUDE/LONGITUDE
FIELD NUMBER:
1) LATITUDE
2) N OR S (NORTH OR SOUTH)
3) LONGITUDE
4) E OR W (EAST OR WEST)
5) UNIVERSAL TIME COORDINATED (UTC)
6) STATUS A - DATA VALID, V - DATA INVALID
7) CHECKSUM
