The echoMAP/echoMAP CHIRP and Striker series devices have the ability to share user data by connecting the bare wires bundled inside their power cable.

There are four wires contained within the power cable bundle. The Blue and Brown wires are used for transmitting user data or NMEA 0183 sentences.

  • Blue is Transmit Positive (Tx+). Connect this to the Brown wire of the second device.
  • Brown is Receive Positive (Rx+). Connect this to the Blue wire of the second device.
  • Black is Ground. Connect both Black wires to the same common ground.
  • Red is Power. Connect this to a positive power source.

Once the connections are completed, User Data Sharing will need to be enabled and the communication serial port set to Garmin High Speed on both devices.

To enable User Data Sharing:

  1. Start on the Home screen
  2. Select User Data
  3. Select Manage Data
  4. Select User Data Sharing and switch to On

To change the communication serial port (echoMAP/echoMAP CHIRP):

  1. Start on the Home screen
  2. Select Settings
  3. Select Communications
  4. Select Serial Port
  5. Select Garmin High Speed

Once the above steps have been completed, all user data on each device (existing and created thereafter) will be copied to the other.

-

Connecting the first device to the extension cable:

  • Connect the Blue wire (1) of the first device to the Green wire (4) of the extension cable.
  • Connect the Brown wire (2) of the first device to the White wire (5) of the extension cable.
  • Connect the Black wire (3) of the first device to the Black wire (3) of the extension cable.

Connecting the extension cable to the second device:

  • Connect the Green wire (4) of the extension cable to the Brown wire (2) of the second device.
  • Connect the White wire (5) of the extension cable to the Blue wire (1) of the second device.
  • Connect the Black wire (3) of the extension cable to the Black wire (3) of the second device.
