The GPSMap 76 has a NMEA 0183 output which will connect to your Icom. You just need to connect the following cable:



BTW, click on the photo to get it for about $15.

Garmin does a strange thing though...the Icom DSC NMEA 0183 negative line will need to be wired to the Garmin's 12 VDC ground line for it to work properly. BTW, this cable will also power the Garmin GPSMap 76 if it is connected to a DC power source. IIRC, the voltage the GPSMap 76 can use ranges from 3 VDC to about 32 or 48 VDC.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
