Wiring vhf to chartplotter

Looking for confirmation I'm doing this right, currently have a garmin 551 and a standard horizon gx1100e VHF
From what my basic knowledge is the purple from VHF goes to the brown input on garmin?

The green from VHF goes to ground of gps/ neg on buzzbar ?

Blue from VHF goes to blue output of gps?

Correct me if wrong and steer me in right direction folk
Cheers
Graham

Have you tried goggling it , recently wired my garmin 551s to show lat long on cobra radio, only had 1 red wire from vhf which went to blue on garmin, and black from vhf went to black on garmin, this only allows garmin to talk to vhf not both ways, also had to set garmin ports to nmea etc, not sure if this is any help ?
