ok i am a dinosaure with computer and i am scared of burning or frying anything here, i decided to refresh the electronics on my boat so i got a new autopilot, it is a simrad tp22, and a new vhf, wich is a standard horizon eclipse dsc gx1000s, and a new depth-knot meter from raymarine(bidata st 40), i already had a garmin gpsmap 60 cx, so i bougth the cable to have it comunicate with the other instrument....

so far i get that the autopilot can only have one thing talking to it so i dont really need to hook up nmea conection to the depth and knot meter, since i want the autopilot and the gps to communicate and the gps and the vhf to comunicate in case of emergency,is the vhf going to talk with the autopilot,i sure hope not but who know...

now i have to play with as wires...

VHF purple-nmea out(pos), green-nmea out(neg), blue-nmea in(pos)

GPS brown-serial data out, white serial data in, black ground, red power 10-32VDC

PILOT one sim net plug, red 12VDC POS, black 0V, red nmea data out pos, blue nmea out common

so now here i sit with a bunch of wire and no idea wich one goes with wich! they are all tiny and they all scare the crap out of me that i migth burn one of them new toy, i know they are all the same nmea 0183 from wath i can see , but iis there some guru out there who could put a diagram on how to plug them, or offer a good explanation of how to plug them!

thank in advance for any advice!
