Question about GPS
Garmin Marine Network uses an Ethernet like standard for high speed transmission between Ploters, Radar etc. I have tried to connect two GPSMAP 3205 plotters using standard Ethernet RJ45 connection (1) using straightthrough and (2) using a cross over cable. Neither connection works 100% so I suspect Garmin have their own wiring. They sell unterminated cable and connectors but nowhere on the Internet can I find how to connect these items.
There is nothing unique to Garmins wiring so an ethernet cable should work. I think it's a crossover but I did it a year ago so I could be mistaken. It's possible that the cable isn't fully connecting because they have added that big knurled screw on part to make it water proof. I had a problem with a Raymarine recently and it turned out to be a defective cable. If you purchase Garmin's connector it comes with instructions on how to assemble. You need a special crimping tool. I bought mine from Radio Shack for @ $40. You could probably save money by buying 2 connectors and cutting the ends off your ethernet cables.
