What smartcraft unit do you have , CS1000 , SC5000 or vesselvieuw ?
I first had my SC1000 connected to my lowrance , then added the SC5000 to the SC1000 and now i have a vesselvieuw hooked up to the SC1000 and all work instandly on the lowrance cartplotter via the nmea connection (blue-white/wite wire)
If i remember right the blue-white wire connects to the ground and the white connects to the nmea+ wire .

i cannot seem to see the guage model on them its the ones that come with an 150 optimax engine the date on the back is 2008, i have double checked the instructions for the gps and have connected green on the gps to + and white to the blue cable also set guages to gps speed on , there is a high pitch noise comming from the reciver when the ignition is on, maybe i have a faulty GPS reciver?

I never needed to set the gauges it just picked ip the gps signal ang showed it on the gauges connected to the gps .
Only the SC5000 gave the speed on annalog till about 30km/h then it automaticly switshed to gps , always worked perfect for me .
I dont know if it works the same on the vesselvieuw as i have not been out on the water yet , but as soon as i switch on the lowrange the vesselview gives the coŲrdinates in the screen .
Maby the CS1000 cant communicate with the gps hooked on to it , what output does the gps have nmea0183 or nmea2000 ?
I believe the SC1000 only works with nmea0183 .
