My Garmin has one channel with Brown/Blue (Blue is Tx out)
And the other with Green/White (can't remember offhand which one is which at mo)
When I had the silva fitted I used the Brown only from the sounder input and the blue only as the output to the VHF with the 2nd channel switched off. I intended to eventually use this to link to a Magnetometer (when I have the 2k to buy it)
I found last night that connecting the Icom the original way didn't work, nor with one wire on the second channel, it would only take a position with both wires connected (+ and -). So it is now connected to channel 2 with both wires.
I am not worried about it too much, I can't afford the magnetometer for a long while yet

Result chocolate covered Icom. oh then we dropped it twice, so funnily enough it doesn't work anymore.

Now how good is Icoms warranty ?
Well, those nice chaps at Icom seemed to have fixed it. After removing the chocolate and cleaning up the contacts it turns out that the radio is perfectly serviceable.

So how good is Icoms warranty ? the service is excellent, thank you.

{astonishingly as it sounds, it seems there are some things that can survive an incounter with a rogue wave }
