Icom M411 connection to Garmin 551s


Can anyone help me with the correct way to make the connection between a new Garmin 551s and an Icom M411 dsc radio. What lead or connection do I require to allow the dsc function on the radio to be connected to the plotter?

thanks in advance

Do a search here, this was discussed last year and seeing as all Garmins have similar outputs you'll be able to work it out. All you need is nmea0183 out (tx) from the plotter connected to the in (rx) on the radio.

no plug connection so solder and heat shrink the wires together
