How to hook a Lowrance Global Map 2000 to a Standard Horizon PS1000 radio? I'd like to use the DSC capablities of the radio using the GPS input from the Lowrance.

Interconnection of your GPS receiver and your radio can be accomplished using their NMEA-0183 serial data interfaces. To send serial data from the GPSr to the radio, connect an NEMA-0183 TALKER (output) (on the GPS receiver) to an NMEA-0183 LISTENER (input) (on the radio).

If you read the owner's manual for the the two devices you will find they contain a description of which wire has which signal. The wires are described by the color of their insulation.

You also provision the GPSr to send the proper data via the NMEA-0183 output. The owner's manual for the radio will tell you what data is preferred. The owner's manual for the GPSr will tell you how to adjust what data is sent.

This one is pretty easy except the Lowrance manual never says
what's what and it has to be infered.

GPS NMEA Out + (White) to Radio NMEA In + (Blue)
GPS NMEA Out - (Red) to Radio NMEA In - (Green)
Radio NMEA Out + (Grey) to GPS NMEA In + (Black)
Radio NMEA Out - (Brown) to GPS NMEA In - (Red)

Trim back the shields on the GPS side and don't connect them
to anything.

Be sure to enable NMEA 0183 out on the GPS.

Note that I haven't actually done this with either of these
units, but I've done it with others, and got the above info
from the manuals.

The manufacturers do NOT make this easy.
