Your GPS is looking for an alternative source of NMEA data and is no longer doing it itself. If it doesn't get that data it will continue to look or wait for it. We can disable this function so the GPS relies solely on the data it is receiving through its own antanae. This function can only be changed while in Advanced mode. If you're not running in advanced mode make sure you switch to advanced mode. Once there, go to your Main Menu (from map screen, hit menu twice). In that menu, go and select SYSTEM SETUP. In your System Setup menu you will see an opition, COM PORT. Select COM PORT and hit Enter. You will see three Check boxes (NMEA INPUT, NMEA GPS INPUT, NMEA OUTPUT). Make sure that none of those are checked. Once you are done, you can EXIT out of the menus. Go out and see if you can acquire a Satellite Fix.

What is the connection path from Garmin 72 to raymarine c80, using NMEA 1083


I'm taking this as you want to send the gps information to your C80 not receive from the C80? If this is the case the brown wire on the garmin is the nmea data out +. The Black wire is considered nmea out neg (-) of the garmin. So hook the garmin brown to the white on the raymarine. Hook the black from the garmin to the green on the raymarine. That means you are outputting lat/long info to the raymarine from the garmin.

Where do I find a 6 pin serial to usb adapter for the Garmin 421s? I can't find one anywhere on line. Does Garmin sell one? It's Saturday and Garmin's help center is closed. Their on line...


Hello,

The 6 pin DIN plug found on the GPSMAP 421s data/power cable (Garmin part number 010-10918-00) is used for the sonar input.

Data transfer from the GPSMAP 421s is easily transferred by memory card.
Information about data transfer on the 421s is at about 50 seconds into this video.
http://www.youtube.com/gpscity#p/search/6/8ddIgvCAUmI

Real time NMEA data can be transferred using Garmin part number 010-10918-00 wired to a DB-9 serial connector (Instructions are on the cable).

It then can be adapted to USB using a serial to USB adapter.

Connection to PC for Nav software


Assuming you have GPS input to your 1732 (i.e. GP310/320 sensor), you'll need a 7 pin NMEA data cable (000-154-028) wired to a D-sub 9 pin (serial) plug. The shield goes to pin 5, blue to #3, & white to #2. Jumper pins 7 & 8 together. The 7 pin cable goes to Data port 3 of the 1732.

I have a SI-TEX black box receiver and I'd like to connect it to a Garmin GPS chartplotter. The SI-TEX black box receiver instructions at one point say:"If the GPS has a NMEA output (or NMEA REF) connect...


Yes, the NMEA- output (I think you lefy uot the "-" in your questoin), anyway, the NMEA - or NMEA negative or NMEA ref is hooked to battery supply ground.
Dont forget to program the Garmin to look for 48,000 baud data.

Upload waypoints via laptop


Quite honestly, this is not worth the trouble. It easier to re-enter the waypoints manually. If you want to try it, you need to get some GPS connection software from someone like: http://www.gpsu.co.uk/. You cannot do it with your PC and cable alone. Good luck.

NMEA communication does not work ( but file transfer is OK)


Try rebooting windows, with gps off connect the cable to gps.

Go out side get a good gps signals on nav menu.

Set the gps communications menu to , nmea, 2.1

Plug the device into a good usb port.

If you look under modems, in control panel you should see a new modem called explorist xxx

If you look at the properties for that you can see its com port number.

I just tried this program http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPS/

and it views nmea from the explorist, just set the com port to the one in the explorist modem .

No guage screen on my garmin 4208


Need more info:

Is your Garmin hooked up to your engine's computer via an NMEA 2000 data cable?

The gauge option will not appear in the menu if the GPS does not recognise the data coming from your engine. (If you turn on the GPS simulator, you should see the gauges on that screen.)

There are 3 possible reasons that the gauges do not appear in the menu:

1) improper wiring between engine and gauges.

2) GPS has not been set up to receive data in the GPS's NMEA setup menu.

3) Engine has not been set up to send NMEA data.

This is a relatively new feature that only works on newer engines that are NMEA 2000 capable, such as Volvo and Evinrude Etec.  The engines usually need an optional instrument package to make use of the NMEA 2000 system.

We're just scratching the surface here, please reply with any questions.
