Question regarding NMEA 0183 on new Lowrance Elite-5Ti

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a Lowrance Elite 5-Ti to upgrade from my almost new Elite 3x. (Too bad I don't have another boat on which to use the 3x.) Aside from intending to "pair" the unit with my I-pad via Bluetooth, I have no plans to connect to other units at this time. I presume that the NMEA 0183 cable is used for that purpose only, and can be coiled out of the way for future use. Am I correct?

Also, can anyone share their experience(s) with the Bluetooth pairing to other devices?

Clip and tape the 0183 wires so they can't short, coil and zip-tie out of the way. You would use these wires for connecting the unit to a VHF radio that is not NMEA2K ready. The only experience I have with the bluetooth is with the OutboardPilot remote control....it works great when I use it.
