1. Bond the BLACK wire on GPS to the BLACK wire on VHF interface cable.

2. Bond the NMEA OUT Positive (BLUE) on GPS to the RED wire of the VHF interface cable.

3. Enable the NMEA0183 output sentence on the GPS.

Garmin to ICOM

Hi,

Would the blue to red be the same for interfacing the Garmin 172c to ICOM M411?
