Re: VHF

The RAM3 (CMP30) is supplied with 23 feet (7 m) of routing cable and can be extended up to 70 feet (21 m) using three 23-foot extension cables model CT-100. Regarding connecting the GX2200 to a chartplotter, please let me know which model chartplotter you own.

Re: VHF

I just did mine, and it couldn't have been easier, Mike is just a plug in affair, NMEA 0183 was just two wires, no software configuring or anything, pure plug-n-play.
If I had to do it again, I would have placed the mike closer, the cord isn't as stretchy as I thought

Re: VHF

Plug too short for remote to thread on yes cord could be longer

Your problem is that the cord on the remote microphone is not long enough to suit you? Why didn't you mount the jack closer to where you will be using the microphone? Why don't you move it closer?

Re: VHF

Perhaps the extension cable socket mounting is not correct or where the socket is mounted is too thick.

I guess it depends on how thick the surface is where the extension cable socket is mounted. Also the protective cap is to be place after the cable socket is securely screwed in. The protective cap "collar" goes over the locking nut.
