Re: GPS USB connector to VHF

I know this is an old thread but just like to add that I bought a BR-355 and connected it to my VHF DSC radio and my NASA AIS radar and both work fine... I used an old Nokia car phone charger for the power supply (6V).

Re: GPS USB connector to VHF

Yes, getting something like this to work is not especially difficult, or expensive, but there are no "plug and play" solutions. You either need some intermediate device, or you need to do some cutting and rewiring of plugs. In addition, farmerboy, you started with a device that directly outputs a serial, NMEA 0183 signal. It would not have been anywhere NEAR that easy if you had started with a BR-353 that uses a USB connection.
