Default Lowrance Elite 4 connected to a PC


I'm planning to connected my Elite 4 HDI to my computer which is running reefmaster for real time mapmaking.

Before I'm doing something that could damage the computer or the Elite I'm checking here


Yellow (TX) to pin 2 on the serial cable
Oransje (RX) to pin 3
And shield (ground) to pin 5

Is there anything else I should think of before cutting the cables?

Could I get trouble with the usb to serial converter with this?

Or is it just doomed to fail?

In advance, thanks
