How to wire gps antenna to Standard Horizon GX2150

I have purchased the attached gps antenna with the intention of hooking it up to my Standard Horizon GX 2150. But it came with zero instructions. Does anyone know which cables Id need to connect to the SH. I know the blue wire on the SH is the input for data.

Re: How to wire gps antenna to Standard Horizon GX2150

You would connect them to the NMEA0183 input on your radio. From the radio documentation, blue wire +, green wire - on the radio. So you would connect the green on the radio to the black on the gps, and the blue on the radio to the green on the gps. You will also have to provide power to the GPS somehow on the red and black wires. It's a receiver, not just an antenna.

Forgive me if you know this stuff already, have you set the radio baud rate to 4800 and using the radio blue and green wires ? Why do you need to connect it to the radio, can you not use the Plotter or Autopilot NMEA outputs ?

Yes, changed the baud rate and used the wires as indicated.

My radio has a DSC calling function which Id like to be able to use. Cant use it without gps.

Do you have a chart plotter and or an autopilot if so where do they get their GPS signal from?


We had a similar problem with a Raymarine VHF it needed an NMEA 4800 GPS source, we ended up using the autopilot output because the plotter single connection baud rate was set at 38400 for the AIS.
