ST1000+ to GPS connection
I have recently purchased a new ST1000+ tiller auto-pilot from RayMarine.
I currently do not have a navigation system, short of an older handheld Garmin GPS12. The GPS works wonderfully, despite it's lack of a mapping feature.
From everything that I have read, using the data cable, which I have, for the GPS 12, I should be able to connect the GPS to the auto pilot. The GPS has a single "data out" pin and a ground, and the tiller has a "NMEA data+" and a "NMEA data-" pin. I would assume that I could connect the "NMEA data+" pin on the to the to the GPS's "data out" pin and the GPS's "ground" pin.
Thoughts? Am I over simplifying this?
