Just wondering if anyone has hooked a non case receiver to the AFS pro 600 display. They have a 10 pin connector in the harness and you have to buy a 10 pin to 9 pin RS232 cable for $100.00. All I need to get into the display is the tx signal from the receiver and maybe ground, so unless there is any terminators or funny things I was going to build my own cable. Just need to know what wires are TX, grnd etc.
Also does anyone know where to get a wiring schematics for the cab, just hooked up the cb and wanted to make sure I used the proper power wires.
Thanks

I have seen trimble gps used with the 600. All that was needed was an adapter harness, don't know the part #. There is a power wire for a cb on the top right corner of the cab, sometimes it is tucked behind the am/fm radio and you have to pull it out to get to the wire. hydro

10-pin Metripack Connector used for GPS input on MY2007 Flagship Combines
A – Switched B+
B – Clean Ground
C – CAN2 HI
D – CAN2 LO
E – RS232 Tx
F – RS232 Rx
G – PPS out
H – RS232 Ground
J – CAN1 HI
K – CAN2 LO
This is the pin layout for the 8010. I hardwired in a serial cable on mine. The cable that case supplies is a null modem cable so on top of the $100 they charge you also have to buy a serial to null modem adapter when your receiver uses normal serial ports.
I have pdf files from caseih about this but not sure how to attach to this response. Hope this helps you out.

Thanks Steigerguy,
That is what I ended up doing as well. Made myself a little null modem cable and plugged it in. When I asked at the dealer for the pinouts did their eyes ever cross, like I was speaking greek to them. If they are going to be running all this electronics they need to get some parts and service backup.
Good luck

The other side of the coin here is - who designs state of the art GPS equipment that uses antiquated cable technologies? Null modem cables - wow. I thought the world was done with those several years ago. Maybe I'm missing something here, but I would think there are better options out there. USB is the first thing that comes to mind. 4 pins: bi-directional data and has power too. Best of all, no freaky cables to make. Standards are good.

I commend you guys for making your own cables instead of paying an excessive amount for a cable that shouldn't have been that complicated in the first place.
