Green External alarm out. 30 v. doc 200. Ma. Maximum hope someone can help I'm totally baffled. Regards. Steve

Good luck!

On my last boat I had a Standard Horizon VHF with the AIS screen which on its own was next to useless but I did eventually manage to get it to talk to the Garmin GPS Map 550 after giving up on the conflicting instructions in the VHF and GPS manuals..

Some nice guru on T.OP. Told me how to wire it and all was sweetnesses and light.
