NMEA 'Out' Cable for Raymarine RL70CRC - Where to Find ?

Though these electronics are only about 5-6 years old, I'm having a heck of a time locating the cable I need. The RL70CRC has a 4 conductuctor jack on the back for NMEA data out. but I haven't been able to locate one so far. Anyone have an idea? The shape looks proprietary.

Thanks,
Chip

Have you contacted RayMarine? I was able to get a NMEA connector for my ST50 radar from them - a much older radar than your RL70.

Hmmm. Hate to say it, but I found one a couple of years ago on eBay. Took a month of watching, but eventually one came up and I purchased for a VERY good price!

No response from Raymarine yet, and no cable on their parts listing that looks like the right one. There isn't even a part number for it in the chartplotter's manual! Arrggh!

I should have been clearer. I obtained only the connector from RayMarine. I had to make up my own cable based on the connector. I called RayMarine when I was looking and a very helpful lady aided me. Given the state of the economy, perhaps RayMarine is not so responsive anymore.

Thanks so much for that part number. I was able to order the last one from Raymarine N.A.

These units have been out of production for more than 5 years. Even my C120 standard hasn't been made for a few years.

If you don't find your cable, I sent all my cables to the guy who bought mine; he already had his, so he might sell or give you my spare.

Drop me a line at skipgundlach@gmail.com if you need a relay to him.

Thanks for the offer Skip. Raymarine USA was able to send me the very last one they had, and I have it in service now.
