autohelm st7000 wiring issue

I'm sure this info is here somewhere but I can't find it.
1) How do I wire my garmin gps into my st7000 cpu? I do know which are the "out" wires from the garmin.
2) My st50 wind gage does not register windspeed but the indicator is turning at the top of the mast. How do I troubleshoot this circuit?

The Raymarine/Autohelm CPU (SeaTalk) may not support the Garmin GPS input.

Check out the handbooks for the Raymarine / Autohelm ST7000
