SkyView GPS Receiver: The SV-GPS-250 is a sensitive, WAAS enabled GPS receiver and antenna. The advantage of having the receiver packaged in one unit with the antenna, is that the output is a standard NMEA serial connection. A shielded antenna cable, with its inherent attenuation of signal and greater difficulty of routing, is not required to connect to the SkyView Display.
GPS Data: GPS latitude/longitude data is necessary for the SkyView to locate its position to display Synthetic Vision and the Moving Map. It is also necessary during calibration of the Remote Compass/Magnetometer, in order for SkyView to determine current location and the correct magnetic inclination.
Redundancy: An SV-GPS-250 is not necessary but highly recommended for the SkyView System. As a backup, NMEA standard GPS input can be utilized from a third party GPS receiver, but most GPS units output updates at 1/second, not 5/second like the SV-GPS-250 does. Another major advantage of the SV-GPS-250 is that it derives its power from a SkyView Display Backup Battery. So in the event of loss of ship's power the GPS will continue to be powered. Another advantage is the SV-GPS-250 is designed to be used with SkyView, and no setup is required.
Connections: Each SV-GPS-250 contains:
Four leads to attach to the SkyView Main Harness, including RX, TX, 8V, and Ground.

I just want to thank you all again, and especially you Anne for your help in tracking the package.
It is wonderful to work with people like you, for whom it is of no consequence whether one buys a simple cable or an expensive GPS. Your effort is the same in all cases.
Keep up this way of doing business, it is refreshing.
All products I have bought from Mendelssohns have been of high quality and well up to my expectations.
I received an excellent service and the delivery was quick and all worked well
