Connecting to a Garmin® Device to Share User Data

NOTE: This feature is not available on ECHOMAP™ Plus 70/90 devices. The blue and brown wires on those devices can connect to NMEA® 0183 devices only.

You can connect the ECHOMAP Plus 60 device to a compatible Garmin device to share user data, such as waypoints. If the devices are mounted near each other, you can connect the blue and brown wires. If the devices are mounted too far apart for the wires to reach, you can connect the devices using a User Data Sharing Cable (010-12234-06).

  1. Make sure both devices are connected to the same ground.
  2. Complete an action:
    • If the devices are mounted near each other, connect the blue wire from the first device to the brown wire of the second, and connect the brown wire from the first device to the blue wire of the second.

    • If the devices are not mounted near each other, obtain a User Data Sharing Cable (010-12234-06), and connect the devices following the instructions included with the cable.

  3. On both devices, select Nav Info > Manage Data > User Data Sharing.

User data is shared between the connected devices. If you select Clear User Data, data is removed from both connected devices.
