Found this on the Navman website, so maybe the colours in manuals are wrong!

Connecting VHF 7100, 7200 to a GPS

NMEA OUTPUT + from third party instrument, connect to yellow wire (NMEA IN) on NAVMAN VHF7100/7200
NMEA Output from third party instrument, connect to Green (NMEA -) on Navman VHF7100/7200

Will still give them a call tho I reckon, saves wasting time, as it should be easy enough!

It may be a set up problem

Hi Neil

I ran Navman for some 2 years, now sold and obviously the manuals went at the same time, so I cant quote word for word.

I recall from new - or when you do a 'factory reset' it disables the position output for the DSC VHF. So this may be worth checking before you change any wiring already made.

I had power feed problems (at one point) where I had to do a factory reset every time I repowered it up, so I went through the set-up quite frequently.
The radio GPS would show position and the radio would say 'no position'.

It is detailed in the manual - I believe when you get to the correct menu it also asks an 'autopilot' enable question either above or below.

Good luck getting it going.
If you are interested I have a full home PC planning kit for C-map

Thanks Paul

I seem to have a problem with my magnetic compass, last time I checked it, it was out by 45 degrees. I have not had a chance to check it properly, I assume it is all the ironwork around it. But, there is no other place to mount it.
