Looking for some advice with an older LCX III unit. Trying to save some money,My old console graph (LMS-520c) would not fire up every time i went out, So i moved the LCX to the console. My boat is a 2008 Champion 210 elite with SmartCraft gauge set up. My whole plan has went down the wrong road..... The RPM/Tach operates fine, the Speedo and water pressure cluster needles just bounce back and forth. The LCX III unit sonar works fine, It shows it is recieving GPS signal, but it drops in and out (GPS puck 3000).
The old unit had a ton of "Y" connections, which one of them was "Red" going into the Network port on the LMS unit, LCX doesnt have that red conector, Found where it had been connected with gray connector and used it from that point. I have been able to ID the GPS Wire from the puck. I have found some wiring diagrams (appear to have all been written in Greek). The info i have found on-line is from several years ago.( wire colors sorta match, but not really) Found 0183 nema (green wire) from smart craft set up is hooked to yellow wire to the unit(guessing thats why Tach works?)
Any ideas, other than burning complete boat.....
Thanks - John (sorry about confusing question)
