VHF tie in to RL70

I have a new Standard horizon GX 1600 that I need to tie into my Raytheon Pathfinder RL70 Plus with hsb2. I have no clue on how to tie them in. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: VHF tie in to RL70

The RL 70 can send NMEA 0183 data (position, speed and time of day) to the GX 1600. Look at the RL70 docs to find the NMEA out wires. Connect these to the NMEA in on the GX 1600. Set the RL70 baud rate to 4800 which it should be by default. The RL 70 can't use any data output by the GX 1600 so far as I know.

Thank you. I assume I just cut and splice them in ?

Yes, no special connectors needed. Connect + to + and - to - and "out" on RL 70 goes to "in" on the radio.
