What connection is this?

I believe this is for my external gps from previous owner. I have a Simrad Go9 using (internal gps) and was going to put it on the network but it has the pins configured different( one on right)? Is there a converter or something?

    Looks like NMEA 2000 to me. T looks normal (N2K Micro) and the other looks like N2K Mini.

    I have the NMEA 2000 running Is there an adapter to the other configuration I am not familiar with it?

    Is the external GPS a Lowrance puck?

    Definitely looks like an nmea cable. In order for it to work it needs to be tied into a powered nmea network. I don't believe you can plug a nmea device directly into another device...ie nmea gps to mfd.

    The T connector on the left is NMEA2000 for sure.  The one on the right isn't SimNet or SeaTalk.  If it's just a proprietary 5-pin connector, you probably won't find an adapter.  You might be able to hack it into an NMEA0183 connection.

    Found out the connector is a LowranceNet 2, 5-pin is early NMEA 2000 from Lowrance
