Is there no benefit to connecting the yellow wire (Serial 1 RX) so the G5 can transmit back to the 660?
Love the Aera. Cant wait to get the G5 installed and connected to it.
Glad to hear you like your Aera 660 and G5.
No, there is currently nothing that the G5 transmits that the Aera 660 can use, so connecting the navigation data output from the Aera 660 to the G5 is all that is necessary.
Oh, and welcome to VAF!
