I am pretty sure I know what I need now and am considering mounting the GPS aerial on the console and running the backbone direct under the cowling to pick up the outboard interface. I haven't ordered the cables from Brownspoint as they only sem to list blue network parts. The red parts seem to be available within the UK but at a cost.
However I can't find anybody in the UK that seems to sell the pole mount spat to pole mount the aerial, all the Lowrance dealers in the US seems to say they cannot direct import and this seems to be the only place that have them listed.
Any big Lowrance dealers in the UK that I can call and ask/order?

It would have been helpful if Lowrance had actually seen a Suzuki engine before developing their EP20 interface, and in particular the adaptor for the 2008 engines. Suzuki outboards now have a small square female socket on the engine...... exactly the same as what Lowrance have put on the end of their cable. Would someone please tell them you just can't plug a female socket into a female socket .

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Lowrance in the UK?

In the US Suzuki engines are now shipping with digital gauges (Suzuki badged LMF's) and the interface cable connects at the helm with a female plug so the current K8 adapter is correct. In the UK, Suzuki are running analogue gauges and therefore the connection is made at the engine which requires a male connector. These adapters are only just becoming available.

Aha.... that makes a little bit of sense and also explains why some forums mention losing your analogue guages when you connect the NMEA guage.
As it happens I've tracked down a supplier of the little square connectors (a suzuki motorcycle spares shop) so I should be able to sort this little problem out.

Cheers
