M601 connections to garmin GPS

Trying to connect M601 to my garmin 182c - can anyone help - the 10 pin connector supplied with two "audio" style plugs and speaker plug - are the audio plug ground on the "outside"? Which one if NMEA in - red or white?

Alternatively has anyone found an easy way of soldering the spare 10 pin connector - and if so were to get a spare

Thanks in advance for any help - all appreciated!

Also, try looking back at the headings of previous threads in the 'Electronics' section - there's lots of useful info on the Icom & Garmin. HTH

Hi there

White is NMEA out of the M601.
Red is NMEA into the M601.

It is a good idea to take a feed from the black lead of the Garmin to the outer of the Phono plugs.

Any more problems call me here and I can chat through it with you on the phone.

Regards

Jon and any other marine electronics bods out there.

I know this is a long shot, but is there any chance that the marine electronics manufacturers could get together and come up with an "industry standard" for wiring colours?
Now that more and more bits of kit talk NEMA to each other things are going to get worse. Could the NEMA spec not be extended to cover this? Even standardising the wording would help. i.e. why do some have NEMA in and out and others NEMA + & -?

I have a real problem with connecting a red wire to a blue wire, or whatever.

Coz they are different.

Surely you have:
NMEA in +
NMEA out +
NMEA in -
NMEA out -

The only area i can see for confusion is when some equiptment combines -ve's (IN or OUT) with GND or SUPPLY -ve

Point taken about colours though.
