I recently installed the RS130 and the supplied SeaTalkng spur cable is too short. Can the cable be cut and spliced? I need at least 12 more feet. I would rather have an extension cable with one male and one female end but couldn't find one on the Raymarine web site. I am running the spur cable to the E22158 Seatalk1 to SeaTalkng converter.
The SeaTalkng cable supplied with the RS130 is white and the instructions say to plug into a white receptacle on the converter. Will your suggested solution give me the same results?
Mike is 100% correct. Thank you for your clear and concise explanation.
You cannot extend the spur cable length (the max length for a spur is 6 meters). So in this case you would extend the backbone to the end of the RS130's spur cable and utilize the in-line terminator.
Please see Page 23 of the attached RS130 GPS Receiver Installation Guide.

long cable runs
Use the optional SeaTalkng inline terminator to connect the GPS
receiver’s spur cable directly to the extreme end of the SeaTalkng
backbone using the inline terminator. This removes the need for a
T-piece connector and a separate terminator, making it easier to
achieve a long cable run.
