NMEA Parts/Kits

NMEA 2000 Parts – Featuring our NMEA Bundles customized for your specific fish finder and outboard

(And, Our NMEA 2000 parts and kits backed up by the best and friendliest technical support in the business.)

Plus, we promise you a working installation.  Period.  Or your money back.

We don’t sell boats, outboards, or fish finders.  We just have a thorough understanding of the communications between them.

An “NMEA Starter Kit” is an incomplete solution.  It requires additional parts for a complete installation.  We sell an NMEA starter kit as well.  Not often, mind you.  Our top seller is our NMEA Complete Bundles.  Customers love that a pre-tested complete NMEA kit shows up, with everything they need for their specific boat, matched to their fish finder and outboard model.  One happy customer sent us an email to tell us that he was done his installation in a half hour.

NMEA is our main focus.  We live it every day.

Golden Channels is a company made up of fishers that are electrical engineers and technicians, too.  So we’ll always respect how precious your time on the water is.  And, we love to help if you have questions.  Not only that, we can modify our kits for shorter/longer boats, and unique installations.  Please do not hesitate to contact us about your specific installation questions.

Oh, and we also sell individual NMEA components, if you need them.

What makes a good NMEA cable?

Cable durability is paramount. Since cables are pulled during installation, the cable must be strong.  This is why our shielded construction method is perfect.  Shielding also protects the cables inside from sharp tight angles and pinch points.

There are two pairs of wires inside an NMEA cable.  These two pairs need to be individually shielded together.  One pair is for data signals, the second pair is for power.  There is also one ground “drain” that runs the entire cable length.

The type of cable being used with a particular NMEA cable assembly is dependent on where in your boat it is used.  You should never use a cable only rated for 75C in an engine environment, for example.  Also, the cable needs to be designed to resist oil and gas, and marine rated for exposure to moisture.

Got Questions?  Good!
