DSC radios usually take the position in the form of what is called a NMEA0183 connection, which is a simple two wire interface. I don't know the Garmin 182 but you need to look for the NMEA0183 OUT positive and negative connections from the GPS and hook them up with the NMEA0183 IN connections on the DSC.

If its the same as the 172 then

red = Power
Black = Ground = RXD -
Brown = Data Out = RXD +
White = Data In

There shouls be a diagram with the manual if you cant find it then you can download one in PDF format from the garmin site www.garmin.com
