A quick question in case anyone else has had this problem. I’m trying to get our Navman 5380 plotter to send GPS data to the 7100 VHF/DSC radio we have – no joy!
. However it was a great day to be messing around in the Marina yesterday, reminded me of the Med!
The 7100 does not use Navbus (sadly) but it does accept NMEA in (the green or yellow wires – one says GPS+ one GPS-, the manual says both are ‘GPS in’). There is a single NMEA out (white wire) from the 5380. Connect up the two wires and it should work!! I have enabled NMEA out on the 5380. The baud rate for both devices seems to be similar but the VHF continues to say “no GPS information”…
Any tips or other useful ways to tell if the 5830 is actually sending data or if it’s the radio that is not happy?? Do I need to ground the NMEA circuit maybe?
Thanks to all……
