I want to replace...

I want to replace a Lowrance Antenna LGC-12s (4 wires) with an Evermore SA320 (RS232) (5 wires). I need correct wiring codes

Mechanic's Assistant: Who makes your GPS?

Lowrance LCX-15MT

Mechanic's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your GPS?

Nothing...I was told they were compatible but hae not tried to connect due to the different wiring colours and 1 less wire on the Lowrance Antenna

Mechanic's Assistant: Who makes your router?

No router it is a Sonar GPS unit Model LCX-15mt

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Network Expert to know before I connect you?

No just the wiring connection

Hi Charles..
Lowrance Antenna LGC-12S
= 1 Blue 1 Yellow 1 Orange/Pink/Red
1 Braided not insulatedEverMore SA320 (RS232)
= 1 Blue 1 Black 1 Red 1 White
1 Braided not insulated
I need to replace the original Lowrance antenna with the EverMore.
The GPS/Sonar unit is a Lowrance
LCX-15MT

Ok, from the orange on the Lowrance to the Green on the SA.

From the bare wire on the LCX to the black on the SA

From the Yellow on the LCX to the white on the SA

The blue on the LCX could go to the blue o the SA if you do not get a signal before connecting it.

Is the extra wire on the SA (braided un-insulated) just tailed off?

Connect it to a ground from the boat.
