Thanks for replies. It appears the answer is NO. The new 130 GPS uses seatalk ng so it must have the converter. What I did learn is that the garmin GPS is not only compatible but works better, faster and is suppose to last longer. It is a simple splice that must go into the NEMA side of the chart plotter. I just finished installing it and seems to work great! So I went from $500 for the raymarine setup to only $80 for the Garmin.
If anyone ever runs into this problem, feel free to give me a shout and I can give you all the details.
