Default Garmin Question: Can a GPS17 antenna be wired via RJ45 on a GMS10?

Just wondering..

I'm not really happy with the way the gps antenna was wired (by me) long ago.

Now that I have a gms10 and a bunch of accessories on that switch, i was wondering if i could also use the garmin network to plug in the gps antenna?

Its weird because when i power up my 3210 it always says the gps antenna is missing even though it reads it just fine on all my map pages. this may have something to do with the ground/signal after re-reading the gps antenna manual, but, aside from that.. i wanted to know if it's possible to crimp an rj45 end onto the antenna cable and plug it into the gms10?

No ...... NMEA 0183 connectivity only.
