I have an (old) autopilot Furuno FAP 50 that is still in a perfect condition.

But I would link the AP to the my C140W in order to have an heading from the AP fluxgate and to have a NAV mode on the AP.

The vendor told me that I only have to connect the braun and the yellow of the multi cable to the NMEA + and - of the AP.

But it doesn't work. No heading on the C140W and when I set the AP in NAV mode I have a blinking cross that means that there are any signal from the C140 W

And, if I am right, the braun and yellow cable are for the NMEA OUT, so I can?t understand how the heading signal could go from the Fluxgate to the C140W without an NMEA IN

Could you help me again ?

Many thanks in advance

Best regards

Yes, you would need to connect both directions of NMEA 0183 to have communication between the two units. On the C140W you would connection the autopilot +/- NMEA Output to the White (+) and Green (-) NMEA Input on the C140W, the from the autopilot connect the +/- NMEA Input to the Yellow (+) and Brown (-) NMEA Output on the C140W.
