Y​es, but there is an optional cord that must be purchased to allow it to produce NMEA 0183 data. Without it the unit will only communicate on NMEA200 network systems. You will also have to have the unit set to NMEA0183 throught the use of third party software and a USB adapter. Most dealers can configure this for you.
