VHF Fixed radio

I bought an Icom 401 2 seasons ago, and mounted it on top of my Dory console (that's right, Dory...) and it worked fine. At the end of last year I bought an old 5.5m Tornado RIB (ah, that's alright then I hear you say...) and have now mounted it flush in the console.

Its a great radio and I've had no problems with it. Personally I wouldn't bother with DSC on a small boat.

Navman 7100 DSC VHF Radio and Garmin 126 GPS - Talking Thanks to Plastimo !!!

Well I got my hands on a Navman 7100 DSC radio and managed to cram it into my small and now very overcrowded cockpit.

Many thanks for all your advice on Radio choice only time will tell if this set is up to the job.

When I came to wiring the Navman to the Garmin thats when I got a little bit stuck, the manual for each instrument talked about the wires in different terms and they were'nt even the same colour.

In the end I phoned Navman on their UK number and got put through to Plastimo. I ended up speaking to a chap called Paul David who gave me bags of assistance via E Mail and on the phone. I must say that without his assistance I would never have been able to wire both units together.

For the purposes of reference in case someone else has the same setup below is the basic wiring diagram to get these two little beauty's working:-

Navman 7100 DSC Radio to GarminGPS 126.



Navman 7100 wiring:-



Pin Wire Function (From Manual)

1 Red Not Used. (No Connection)
2 Orange NMEA OUT (+) (Not Used)
3 White Program or clone select (Not Used)
4 Yellow NMEA IN (+) (From GPS) Goes to the BLUE on the Garmin 126
5 Green NMEA IN (-) (From GPS) Goes to the Negative Supply or Buzz Bar.
6 Black NMEA OUT (-) (Ground, not used)
7 Blue NAVBUS (not used on 7000 or 7100)
8 Grey NAVBUS (not used on 7000 or 7100)

Garmin GPS 126 wiring:-



Pin Colour Function

1 Red 10 - 40 volts DC
2 Black Ground
3 Blue NMEA Out Goes to Yellow on the Navman 7100 this is the only cable you need to connect to the radio.4 Brown NMEA in
5 White No connection
6 Green No Connection
7 Yellow Alarm Low

Well I hope that is of use to somebody.

Now its all up and running does anyone know why channel 16 where I live (Near Basingstoke) seems to have permanent interference on it. I can't even squelch it out.

Noticed this too on Sunday. Coastguard was having real problems and blaming the French (quite right too) but couldn't monitor 16 very easily. Since it affected both handheld and fixed VHF I was fairly confident it wasn't my radios constantly transmitting, always a worry.

Now if only every one had DSC we wouldn't need to listen to channel 16.
