  • Garmin NMEA 2000 Network Issue

    I just added a backup GPS sounder, a Garmin echomap 54 and the instructions say to add it to the existing NMEA network. When I plug the cable into the NMEA 2000 slot on the unit, it wont turn on, when I plug it into the power plug, I can't interface with auto-pilot, but at least it turns on.

    Do I need a separate NMEA cable?

    This unit has a 4pin (unit) to 5 pin (network) cable.

    Thanks

    Do you have this running through a NMEA backbone? The backbone supplies the power and only one cable to the GPS for all your data to link back and forth
