Connecting Raymarine RL80c with Raystar 120

Hey , Having some issues connecting a GPS arial to Chartplotter using NMEA.

The raystar has several wires :
yellow - NMEA out
green - NMEA IN
Shield - ground
red - 12v positive
brown - for RTC (unsure of this one)

THe Chartplotter has several wires
red - 12v
shield - ground (RV Drain)
yellow - NMEA in -ve
orange - nmea in +ve


So i connected
raystar - Chartplotter
red - red
yellow - yellow
shield - shield

Yet I do not get any GPS signal on chartplotter. Is this wiring correct?

Re: Connecting Raymarine RL80c with raystar 120

I believe the problem is two fold, which gps 120 do you have, nema or seatalk?

If it is sea talk the platter does not power the sea talk connection, so you have to get 12 volts to the gps thru a junction box. If you are using a nema gps then you still need to get power to the gps.

Take a look in the raymarine manuals, it is spelled out there.

Good luck.

Re: Connecting Raymarine RL80c with raystar 120

I have an RL80C Plus, my simrad fluxgate has gone south, I was wondering if I can connect the plotter via sea talk to the simrad autopilot and use it to steer by cross track error rather than compass heading ?? the manuals seem to ignore that issue unless it's a ray auto pilot.
