I am attempting to hook up a Humminbird fish finder with GPS to a West Marine 585 VHF radio for DSC calling. The cable from the fish finder has 4 wires, Red +12V, Black Ground, Green NMEA In, White NMEA Out. The accessory cable from the VHF unit has 4 NMEA wires and 2 different ground wires. Which wires are hooked up from the two harnesses?
