Never seen a garmin in the wild. Only contact has been a few posts with tech issues...

Friend just bought a Toshiba TV, Toshiba DVD, Toshiba sound system... Coz they must all talk to each other..

2 hours later... shiny dya have a lead to connect optical digital to coax digital sound... Doh.

You are gonna get a lead with some wires to connect. At best they will be the same colour as the ones on the garmin to connect to. At worst they won't. Other than the aerial there will be two power wires plus two data wires and possibly a ground data wire if it doesn't use the power ground...

My 4 year old could connect them up...

The challenge is making sure the GPS is transmitting the right sentence. If the navman was get pos data it is..

I think the only advantage would be dual redundancy if the main GPS unit went t/u. But you could then argue going two of everything "just in case" - where does it end?

I was seriously looking at the GX1700E for that reason but I'm now thinking of an NMEA2K network; so the GX1700E is out as that's NMEA0183 and won't talk to my "NMEA2K only" plotter to plot other boats on it.

NMEA in only as far as I know. That's no bad thing but means can't show DSC alert pos on plotter...

After DSC really and it looks like this vhf if more suited to a large boat (according to icom website).

Thanks anyway though.

VHF Radio

Fitted loads to rib consoles but yes no probs we used to do a lot of icom 411 refurbs @ 125 (small DSC model) odd but the supply seams to have dried up this year !

Good radio if you can find one.

To be honest though, with 3 yr guaantee the extra few is well worth it to buy new.
