Finally got our MMSI through today and have a couple of questions if anyone can help it is much appreciated. I know this one has been done to death on various different systems, but help still apreciated!!!
Firstly on my Icom 421 it says no GPS or something like that, am I to assume that this means the cable hasn't been connected between the two units?
If that is the case then I read that the Icom (quite handily) has a GPS jack although the Garmin doesn't. Can I just snip off the jack and connect the corresponding wires together......or is it best to try and fit the garmin unit with a corresponding jack?
If the fitting of a jack is required for the Garmin then anyone know where I can get one?
If not and I can just attach the corresponding wires to each other then a bit more help is needed! The garmin has two wires (one white - data in) and (one green - data out) which by the diagram I'm looking at are the two needed for the connection. However if I've just snipped the jack off the Icom I'm not sure which is which?!
Thanks once again for any help!
