Integrating Icom 504 DSC to B&G H1000 via NMEA0183

I have a Raymarine E120, Raymarine GPS unit, and the Raymarine DSM300 networking interface module. I kept my B&G H1000 for wind, autopilot and depth, and integrated them using NMEA0183. I am now replacing my Simrad VHF radio with an Icom504 but cannot figure out where and how to make the connections for DSC. The E120 NMEA input feeds to the B&G universal interface module.

Appreciate any feedback!!

I have the 504 on my boat. It takes both an input and output, since the DSC function on it allows it to plot the position of any distress calls that come in via DSC.

The output of the M504 should go to the secondary input on the E120, if it has two. Otherwise, you may need a NMEA mux.

The output of the Raymarine GPS can go to both the E120, H1000 and the M504, as one NMEA 0183 output is supposed to be able to feed up to FOUR listeners...

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.
