Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. I don't think passing the Humminbird's antenna signal to the radio will prove compatible. It's original - I never heard of it being tried before - but it will not work. Running two different devices off one antenna has a distinct implausibility about it. For your Cobra radio's antenna, select and obtain a regular GPS antenna. It does not have to be expensive, and if you need guidance, let me know, and I will present you with some compatible selections.
