All you need is to connect one of the 'data out' wires of the Garmin onto the signal wire of the Icom. Then connect the screen wire of the Icom to the negative of the GPS. There are two data outs on most garmins, one is port 1 and the other port2.. Make sure you turn the port 'on' to NMEA on the GPS so that it sends position data to the 421
