Hope this helps, although may be a tad late........ [/QUOTE]

9D280, Polwart et al,

belated thanks for your assistance with this....sorry i didn't thank you at the time, have been a bit preoccupied

Upshot is that I couldn't get them talking easily, got fed up trying, bashed my credit card and ordered a SH C180i Chartplotter....due with me this week.....defeatest attitude I know, but needed my own plotter anyway

Logic being that SH to SH interface can't defeat me

Thanks for the PM's re other probs...will update you when we have everything sorted

Dan

Well, yeah; that's one way to take care of it.

Luck with the new toy...

C180i and GX1500E

All rigged and working /talking.....Hooray!

I have been using heat shrink connectors for the wiring, but as i was working on the boat today a mate came past and saw what I was doing....

He gave me some connectors which are (very similar to) those which he uses at work as a BT engineer

They are brilliant, little clear crimp shut connectors which have a glue inside,,,literally put the wires into the block, clamp down and you have a waterproof connection, no stripping of wires etc.

Worth trying to 'find' some if anyone is doing similar work (they only work on small gauge telecoms type sized wires).

Oh, loving the C180 joystick too!

Dan
