I'm only used to automotive relays.. anyways long story short I'm trying to figure out how to connect looking at the datasheets the layout is different then what I'm used to

I'm looking at a SPDT relay

most show where the coil is but what are the other points? I'm used to markings like 87, 30 and so on

Here is the datasheet

http://www.components.omron.com/components/web/pdflib.nsf/0/EB5C8B538D0F639485257201007DD57D/$file/G5V_1_0911.pdf

and picture

it's a SPDT so I don't know why it shows more then 5 pins

5 and 6 are Common (that's like one pin only)
1 is NC
10 is NO
2 and 9 is the Coil

Looks like you decoded it right! The relay in your first post is a SPDT (single pole double throw) and the one in Post # 5 is a DPDT. You can put the contacts in parallel for a higher current rating, if needed, or use it to control two isolated circuit loads.

So that's how I can get the full 2 A rating? it's only going to be used on something that going to draw only about 700 mA.
