Raymarine NMEA obsolete connector replacement

Many Raymarine plotters such as the C and E series use a now obsolete NMEA connector.


I tried for several days to source the 5 pin plug for NMEA without success, and can cost upwards of £60 second hand. In the end the nearest I could find was the following connector.




The pins are the right spacing but the keyway is 90 degrees out. It was easy to make a new keyway with a needle file and block up the original with a small piece of plastic and glue. Total cost £8. They are available on ebay or many other sites.
