SOURCE: My plotter seems not to output NMEA to my DSC radio and auto helm

Your plotter can talk to you Radio and your pilot. It sounds like one of two things.You must go into the system setup menu and turn on the nmea sentances. You will need to turn on RMB, RMC, GGl at least. You can turn on all the sentances if you like it does not matter. If this does not fix, check color of wiring is correct. Remember you have to go from NMEA + out (on plotter) to NMEA + IN on Radio.Then you need NMEA - out(on Plotter) to NMEA - IN on Radio.
You can look at the sentances wirth a multi meter coming out of your plotter. You put meter in DCV and connect across the NMEA out lines. You will see the meter move every second or so as it send a sentance.

If your old antena is a Seatalk or NMEA antena you can use it for your C80
If you GPS antenna is older than five year change it.

SOURCE: I bought a C80 Raymarine

I would send your seatalk (Yellow and black) from your c80 to a junction box, send your rs125 to the junction box and another pig tail seatalk lead to the J-box coming from the autopilot. Now...on the raystar 125 connect the green wire to red, and the brown to black. Now connect the reds together, the shields and blacks together and finally the yellow's. The autohelm should power up the seatalk bus enough for your gps to work. the c80 offers power from seatlk but don't connect it's red wire.



Autohelm ---------------[ ]----------------GPS

C80---------------------------

Many times the shield is the silver wire we call it that since it has no other coating except its occasionally heat shrinked on the end.

RS125 -------Green------------------------0-------------RED------------ + power
--------RED------/

--------Yellow-----------------------0-------------Yellow---------- Data
--------Black------------------------0-------------Shield----------- -Power
--------Brown---/

SOURCE: RAYMARINE C80 SEATALK CABLE INSTALLATION

The Raymarine RS125 has five wires and can be either seatalk or nmea. It would be best to get a dealer involved. If things are hooked up wrong you'll fry your equipment.

SOURCE: My Raymarine C80 CHart plotter won't load.

Check to see if this is a power issue by connecting to shore power and fully charging your batteries overnight with instruments off. While still connected to shore power, with batteries fully charged, turn on C80 navigation system. If the loading screen comes on and does not reset, then try holding down the button immediately to the right of the red power button for at least 3 seconds to see if the system re-boots.

How do I connect my Garmin GPSMAP 451 to a Standard Horizon GX1200E VHF radio, eclipse DSC?


Hi
You'll need to identify and connect NMEA out (+ and -) from your 451 to NMEA in (+ and -) to your VHF to get it done.
Hope this is helpful.

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.

Connect Ratheon RL 70 to Raymarine E80


The two devices can share Nav data only. No radar, Sonar or Chart will be shared.
Hook the RL70 and the E80 together on SeaTalk and all data will be shared both ways. Alternatively, it could be done with NMEA 0183, which is directional, or you could also translate the RL70 data to NMEA 2000 and share it that way. As long as you have all Raymarine equipment, you are home free using a three wire Seatalk connection, with only two hooked up, Yellow and Bare, color to color.
Remember, this will share Nav Data only.

Raymarine st8002 wired to furuno


The st8002 is not compatble with rs232 data. You need to supply it with nmea 0183 data. You will need to wire it to the "NMEA port IN" on the pilot to NMEA out on your Furuno and turn on the mnea sentances "out" on your Furuno. You will need to turn on at least the following sentances GGA GLL RMB RMC.Hope that helps.

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!

I bought a C80 Raymarine Plotter this has a NMEA pigtail with Brown, Screen, Yellow, Green And White wires I haave also bought a RS 125 Receiver this has a pigtail lead with Red , Green, Yellow, Brown and...


If you have a Raymarine pilot it makes sence to wire it all up to Seatalk. Wire as follows Red to red , silver to silver, yellow to yellow, brown(on rs125) to silver on seatalk buss Green (on rs125) to red on seatalk buss.The above is for the conection between RS125 and C80.
To hook the pilot to system you just need to hook the seatalk lines (red, yellow,silver) from the pilot to the conection with the RS125 and the seatalk cable to the C80.(Color for color).The sea talk connection for your pilot can be picked up from you course computer they are labeld and colored on the unit.
If you are not running a course computer as in the case with the older wheel and tiller pilots you will need to take a sea talk cable and cut it. Once it is cut you will see the red yellow and silver wires and you can tap into there . Remember to connect the cable back together were you cut it. Hope this helps
