Question about JRC 1800CP GPS Receiver

JRC FF-30 colour fishfinder

Just bought one, there are two wires on back, one red the other black. The seller has tagged the black one as power (+) and the red one as negative(-) This seems to be backwards but can't find anyone to tell me otherwise, and as this is a JAPAN RADIO Co. product, don't know if I should go with my instinct of red=positive/black is ground...

Any help out there?

Anyone have a manual I can get?

It appears to have a computer interface,It uses an RS232C Interface, a small D9 Socket on unit, you need a specially wired cable, to talk to your unit, with GPS software, it sends out NEMA codes to the PC. You also need driver, and software, software at the least. www.jeppesen.com/documents/.../FullCompatabilityListAug09.pdf software compatibility list above.

I looked but couldn't find a manual...

I have the service manual for this GPS and it doesn't list the wire colors directly for the plug. This much I'm sure of:
RED-12 VOLTS (+)
BLACK-GROUND (-)
GREEN IS COMMON AND HOOKS TO CHASSIS OF GPS
THAT LEAVES THE BROWN AND YELLOW, BASED ON STANDARD DIN WIRE COLORS THE YELLOW IS LIKELY GPS OUPUT. HERE IS THE LINK TO THE SERVICE MANUAL. IF YOU OPEN UP THE UNIT THE WIRE COLORS SHOULD BE PRINTED ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD THAT THE PLUG IS ATTACHED TO.

Using a cable to my pc to transmit data my jrc showed error


Yes. There used top be a download at www.jrcamerica.com but I can't find it now. I bought the required null modem cable, used the intended J-NAV LINK 2300 softaware and still got the ERROR msg. If you figure it out let me know, because loading waypints/routes is very timely.

Garmin fishfinder 160 blue . no powerup


I have a 160 blue also, and this morning I had the same problem. I called tech support while I was out on the water but no help. When I got home I double checked my connections on the battery minder/selector and the fuse panel. My GPS worked fine but the FF only beeped, like it had low power and the display wouldnt come up. It came up once for about a second and then faded earlier on the water. I pulled the power and ground connections from the fuse block and put them directly on the battery, it came right up. I now run the FF wired straight to the single battery and the GPS and other items on my other battery.

Hope it helps.

Apelco 365 fishfinder. Broken pin on power connector


i did the same damn thing and am amazed this question is on the net. i bought a new system but plan on taking it back. the 365 was a pretty nice model and i'm just going to splice it straight to the power supply. but i was lucky, the two pin connector is the damaged one so drilling it out and splicing it SHOULD be easy. well see. at this point i have nothing to lose.

hope this helps.
