tommays will become famous soon enough
In 0183 the GPS transmit wire allways connects to the receive wire of the decive and a common wire (Single ground)

Anything giving info to the GPS would have to have its transmit wire connected to the GPS recieve wire and the common wire (single ground)

The 0183 is really just RS-232 (old mouse) given a marine name

Even in a limited manual they should tell you the color code of the wires

Then as mentioned you get into the proprietary data BUT if it is a 0183 device then it should work but there is really no way to check other than it works


i gotta read the date

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
