Jim, if do it correctly, it will surely work. If you're extending both data and power cable, use separated cable. You GPS take just a tinny amount of amps, so you'll not need a big gauge, say 8AWG. For the data wires, I suggest you to use shielded pairs of small gauge (unless you plan go over 300ft). Those old terminal RS232 cables are a perfect fit. Another important point is the routing, so avoid your engine room, high loads like alternator, charger, etc to reduce at minimun the chances for noise on your data wires. I did the same to my 276C and still works fine. NOTE: I always cut and splice my Raymarine radar cable , and never had any problem with that.
