Garmin 48 interface w/a Simrad Tillerpilot

I just purchased a Simrad TP22 Tillerpilot; this unit has an interface for NMEA-0183 which is basically a 2 wire, in/out connection [approximately 22-24 ga wires].
My question is which Garmin [or aftermarket] cable type will enable this [bi-directional?] interface?

I don't really need a power input for the 48, since I run on AAA's and that's usually good for about 10 hrs at a time, but if I did want a power interface w/the autopilot interface, which cable will do that as well?

Thanks,
Patrick

What are the data cable 5 wire used for and where do they get hooked up


The additional wires are for NMEA data transfer to and from other devices and sensors like distance, speed, depth, temperature and NMEA 0183 sentences the unit will use when connected to a VHF radio or other NMEA 0183 device.

How to hook a uniden vhf radio to a garmin 4208 for nmea operation?


Hi
I realize this question is old, but for the benefit of someone else who might have the same query, the NMEA 0183 outputs from the 4208 are the gray (+) and black (-) which go to the data in of your DSC VHF. The data OUT from your VHF connect to the white (+) and black (-) of the 4208.

If using NMEA 2000, using the second link below, start on page 10.

The installation instructions are about halfway down on the link page and can be accessed directly from the install link below if you prefer. -Steve

Connections problem


Question: What are the extra wires used for on the power cable for my fishfinder?
I found this on the carmin website under questions and answers. I think your cable is ok to use according to this.
--> Answer: Not all of the wires in the harness are required for use. To connect the unit to the power source, only the black & red wires are required (black to ground, red to positive). Here are descriptions of the other wires in the harness:
  • The Blue wire is used for a NMEA data out connection to another NMEA compatible device. The fish finder outputs NMEA 0183 version 3.01. The receiving device must be compatible with this format and looking for the NEMA sentences DPT, DBT, MTM, or VHW.
  • The Brown wire is used for a NMEA data in connection to receive data from another NMEA compatible device.
  • The Yellow wire is used to connect to an external buzzer or alarm to alert you to any alarms which have been set to sound on the device. The Yellow GARMIN wire connects to the negative end of the external alarm. The positive return on the alarm will connect to the red positive wire of GARMIN.
  • The green, white, and any other colors present have no connection purpose related to your fishfinder. The 18 Pin connector wiring harness is used by several other devices which utilize these wires.
If the device is only being connected to power & do not require a NMEA interface, PC connection, or external alarm support, only the red & black wires are required.

Is it posible to conect garmin 420s gpsmap to st40 deth transducer


No. St series from Raymarine are made for digital depth only, not fish finding and do not talk nmea. The only way to get that Garmin of yours to see depth would be to go from an ST40 nmea out to that garmin nmea in. Or purchase a nmea 0183 smart sensor and hook it to the garmin.

What is the connection path from Garmin 72 to raymarine c80, using NMEA 1083


I'm taking this as you want to send the gps information to your C80 not receive from the C80? If this is the case the brown wire on the garmin is the nmea data out +. The Black wire is considered nmea out neg (-) of the garmin. So hook the garmin brown to the white on the raymarine. Hook the black from the garmin to the green on the raymarine. That means you are outputting lat/long info to the raymarine from the garmin.

I have just purchased a simrad tp22, it has arrived with no instruction book on how to install it, Can the tp be installed on either port or starbord, if so how is this acheived


when installing the unit --- you can mount it on the port or starbord side, and when all is in place you will need to go out and ' spin ' the boat ( this callibrates the internal compass ). there is a certain distance that the auto pilot needs to be mounted away from the tiller and sometimes a special bracket is needed to mount correctly. it has been years since I installed the one on my boat and not having the manual in front of me I don't want to just throw out numbers --- if I was looking at the boat and tiller I could tell you where to put it. also, if you are interfacing the unit with a GPS or Radar you will want to get the manual to make sure those wires get to the right place.
there is a company that I use to be associated with down in Seattle, WA ( The Off Shore store,, 206-632-3025 ) -- they are a Simrad dealer and they have all the manuals there and they would be more than happy to e-mail you the info that you are looking for,, they are nice people ( at least they were 6 years ago ). they can also order you any extra parts that you may need to make your installation easier. ((( tell them that Chris that use to work for Todd sent you to them -- you are sure to get special treatment then ))). enjoy the water and wind,

Installation raymarine st6002


The power cable of your 2106 acts as a data cable also. You should find additional unused wires on the cable. Locate the brown and blue wires. You will need to connect the brown wire to the "NMEA OUT +" terminal on the autopilot course computer and connect the blue wire to the "NMEA IN +" terminal on the course computer. Finally, connect the "NMEA OUT -" and the "NMEA IN -" to ground (preferably the same place that the Garmin is grounded (black wire). Be sure that the Garmin interface is set up for NMEA In / NMEA Out. That should get you going!

"Upload ...Not Present" message. Nothing else on the screen. I replaced the internal battery last spring used it all summer. Have just checked internal and external batteries and all are fresh 3v internal and new AA four batteries. Upon startup the screen says "Upload" "Not Present" and there is no menu. I have tried hitting Page and Menu, etc. nothing happens. I tried leaving it out and on for 3 hours to see if it would find itself and satellites. I tried connecting to the computer and uploading the internal program the port was not found. Tried this a number of times and a number of ways. I have tried leaving it on to search for 3 hours and have tried to connect to my computer to reinstall the software but that does not work. The internal battery was replaced with a new one last year. I have fresh batteries in the unit. What is the problem? How do I fix it? Thank you. I love this unit and would like to keep it going. I have fixed two others for friends who needed the internal battery fixed. They use it as a backup. I have tried the Auto Locate procedure about 3 times. I have also tried clearing by holding the PAGE + Power. Then tried autolocate. Message "Upload... Not Present" still remains. Also have tried clearing by holding the MARK + Power. Then tried autolocate. Message "Upload... Not Present" still remains. Now I am wondering if this message has to do with an interrupted connection with EasyGPS from last winter. I was uploading waypoints, and thought it had completed and may have turned off and disconnected the plug before an operation was completed in saving waypoints off the Garmin 48. I do not know this for a fact, but that was the last operation I recall doing last fall, before starting the GPS up again on the boat this spring. I have also tried to connect the unit to Easy GPS via the serial port, thinking perhaps it would complete whatever it is trying to do. I have tried uploading routes and downloading routes via EasyGPS send and recieve and it does not seem to work. I wonder now if the interface setting has been reset, by my pressing PAGE+power and Mark + Power earlier. I would not mind that if the menus came up properly, but that is not happening. Is there some other way to kick it out of this mode? I turn it on and there is the message "Upload...Not present" and none of the menu buttons work to get it into the normal startup screen mode..... I've tried Quit, Page, Enter, Goto, Mark, Power (off and on), and none of the get the computer out of this mode and back into the normal menus for startup. I've removed the antennae and checked all the contacts and that seems fine, and reinstalled. Is there some small reboot button inside that I can jumper? I have tried taking the internal battery out and letting it sit for three days and it still does the same thing. Any suggestions would be appreciated
