NMEA 0183 connectors
I Am installing the Airmar Weather station NMEA to USB interface, I need to source a male connector for the sensor input to the interface, I have the cable from the Sensor (heading) but not the connector. I can buy the complete cable WS-C10 but it’s crazy expensive (and long) when all I need is the connector. Any advice as to where I can obtain this would be appreciated.
I don't have specific information on where to get the cable but I would start with Gemeco. Here's their page of information on the WX Station cables: https://www.gemeco.com/wxcables.php . If the connectors are available there's a high probability Gemeco can point you in the right direction.
Well, Gemeco responded quickly, but just pointed me in the direction of their retail dealers who will only supply a complete cable with both plugs attached. So I’m back to $100+ when all I need is a plug! Not sure where to go from here, having trolled the net to no avail. Very surprised these are so hard to find.
I realize you said you need the male connector but that sometimes gets confusing with respect to the overall connector or each individual pin. Any chance this is the part you need? https://www.gps4us.com/AIRMAR-8-Pin-Female-Weather-Station-Connector--P35516.html
