Have a B&G network (Hydra 2000 vintage installed 1999) including a B&G LCD Elite chartplotter
. We were running a Garmin GPS
for 11 years. The wiring
was damaged and the antenna
needed to be replaced. The Garmin GPS
36 is discontinued.
Replaced it with NMEA 0183
compatible Garmin 17x and cannot get the Elite to acknowledge the connection. Have checked, rechecked voltage, wiring
etc. Any hints on getting these two devices to talk to each other?
Previous wiring with Garmin 36GPS Antenna
Garmin 36 Gray NMEA 0183
Ver 1.5 serial
output to LCD Elite brown Rx+
Garmin 36 Black ground to LCD Elite yellow Rx-
Current wiring with 17x GPS Antenna
Garmin 17x Gray Tx+ to LCD Elite brown Rx+
Garmin 17x White/Red Tx – to LCD Elite yellow Rx –
Tried LCD Elite yellow to ground same as GPS 36 – no connection
The 17x has a channel B Rx+ and Rx-
Does the Elite want to receive or transmit? Any help here would be great.
