If you're going to use blocks, then definately go with the marine version brass screws or plated brass.**

Be sure and mount them away from anything that generates RF or high current likes*radios and ammeters.* My first effort, I*got the terminal bundle too close to the Marine VHF and everytime you used the radio*the GPS would lose tracking*which caused it to reset.

*Most marine hardware stores carry a marine grade terminal block, but you may have to buy two blocks for the number you need.

Made exploratory trip for terminals blocks. Look at local hardware store, Radio Shack, O'rileys auto parts store, and Home depot. No luck. The only terminals of any kind were at Home Depot and they were only a 8 pos with standard screws. Will look at a marine electronics shop and WM in the city tomorrow. Found some on line as a last resort.

Going to continue to look for another 2006C or 10C to buy. No confidence in the one I have.**

*Here's the place I used.*

http://stores.ebay.com/Genuinedealz

*free shipping, I thought a good deal, stuff came in*3-5 days via regular mail.* I bought the 20 position strips in both amperages as you can break off/saw off how ever many positions you need.

if I'm going to use them where there's lot's of moisture but not submerged...I just smear where the wire goes in with a dab of dielectric grease ior silicone...whatever's handy.

As cheap as they are...I bought extra so whenever I rewire something or need to splice a broken wire/cable....I have enough on hand in the electronics toolbox *that I'm good to go.

RE: Garmin 2006C-no sonor on the menu.

I found the ebay/genuine dealzs link but the european style blocks were all for larger wires. I needed 20 to 24 awg. Went to Graingers today and found one that will work. Thanks for the help.

*If you are talking NEMA wires I used the larger size..I fold the small wires over (do that whether soldering or putting a crimped connector on) the larger sizes still tighten down just fine.

RE: Garmin 2006C-no sonor on the menu.

Got wired up this morning. Folded the wire ends over and they tightened up. Have GPS and sonar, both stations with my 2010C, but the 2006C is toast and Garmin doesn't work on them anymore. Does anyone know if one GPS antenna can feed two like chartplotters?

*Depends on whether the GPS antenna is a GPS standalone and puts out NEMA data or whether it's a dumb antenna and passes sat signals to a chart plotter for interpretation.

Either way...usually can output the NEMA from one chartplotter (or antenna if NEMA)*to the next via NEMA.*

Yes, GPS17 will supply GPS data to two or more chartplotters.* See the installation guide page #6 and the wiring diagram is on page #9.
