Garmin 551s to Radio Ocean AIS connection

Hi
I recently installed a new Radio Ocean 4080 VHF with AIS. I need to connect it to my Garmin 551S so the radio will have our position for DSC purposes and the chart plotter will show the AIS information on screen. The wiring colours are different on each apparatus, any ideas?
Thanks Captain Grey

You neet to rtfm and see what the wire colors mean.

In on the gps goes to out on the radio. and Vice Versa.

Sometimes Mfr's like to be cute and call the functions by two different names and if that's the case you'll need to post here and someone can help. 'common' usually goes to 'ground' or 'earth'
