Exchange GPS data
I use this cable to connect 696 to my flight simulator (Microsoft Flight Simulator X) and practice using it while flying. It works great. You will need a USB-UART adapter, plus do some soldering.

To enable fake GPS into 696, you need to enable Aviation In from Interface settings and turn on Simulator mode in Info page. On the MSFSX, I use FSUIPC to output GPS data in aviation format.

Pros: Tremendous functionality and and easy to use. Expensive but you get what you pay for. Cons: Subscription cost. Upgrading to the 696 was a tough decision with all of the new technology coming on line with the iPad. I can honestly say I have no regrets. This is a great unit with very intuitive operation. I use it as a backup to my 530w but with the XM subscription it really brings a lot of useful data to the cockpit. This is a huge move up from the 496.

Does this cable provide tx/rx nmea for rs-232?
Justcruisin on Apr 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes and more. This cable can be used for several purposes: You can 1) output GPS data FROM 696 to another device or 2) you can feed (fake) GPS data INTO 696, 3) It can communicate with other Garmin devices to exchange garmin specific data. The protocol to send/receive data is NMEA, or Gamin, or AVIATION format.

I use #2 with my flight simulator setup and 696 receives GPS data from my flight simulator.

Hope this helps.
