Hello!
I have the connection diagram for the GPS unit below.  It should be simple to wire up.  You will need a USB to RS-232 converter, which is available in a number of computer shops/Radio Shack.
Hope this helps you out,

Can i use a gps30 with 1715 furuno


You can interface the GP30 to the 1715 and get Lat/Lon readings where the cursor is. The GPS has extra wires in the power cable. The 1715 will require a NMEA cable pn 000-154-028. Connect the white GPS wire to the yellow radar wire and the blue GPS wire to the green radar wire.

I want to know where the red,yellow,blue, green,,white,and black wires go?


red and black are power and ground, blue and white are gps output signal connect those to 9 pin connector pins 2 and 5 and get a 9 pin(serial) cable to usb adapter for input to a laptop, charting or mapping program and you are good to go. just make sure if you are using xp to wait until the mapping program is running and searching for gps signal before you connect the serial or usb because windows thinks the signal is from a mouse and the cursor will turn into a raging crackhead jumping all over the screen and randomly clicking on whatever it touches.

To connect gps to computer wich pins do i connect of nmea cable?


pins 2(-) and 5(+) on a 9 pin serial cable, then you need a usb to serial adapter for input into the computer if you do not have a built in 9 pin serial port on you computer because the usb moves the information faster than the gps signal. gps is roughly 4800 baud, usb is moving so much faster you need a buffer

How to interface a furuno 1833c navnet to a usb port and how to download waypoints to my pc.I have the older 9 pin pc cable and a usb adapter cable.Looking for usb drivers and software to make it work.


The display uses a serial interface, otherwise known as a comm port. You can get a USB to DB9 adaptor practically anywhere. Once you have a serial connection, you will need software such as MaxSea to send the waypoint with.

internal damage to the display, fixable by Furuno, and probably economically feasible (guess $250 with round trip to Furuno)

Hi fire1961,

Downloading data from my FURUNO GP-30 gave me no problems. But it took me long time to figure out why I coudn't upload waypoints and routes to the GP-30 via the serial port in my ThinkPad T30.

I tried nearly everything tested the cable, tested a lot of different software and even wrote a little c-program to communicate with the serial port. I also tried a serial-to-usb converter with no results. Then I stumbled over this RS232 Tutorial. According to this - serial ports are not just serial port but can be divided into three general categories:

The types of driver ICs used in serial ports can be divided into three general categories:

* Drivers which require plus (+) and minus (-) voltage power supplies such as the 1488 series of interface integrated circuits. (Most desktop and tower PCs use this type of driver.)
* Low power drivers which require one +5 volt power supply. This type of driver has an internal charge pump for voltage conversion. (Many industrial microprocessor controls use this type of driver.)
* Low voltage (3.3 v) and low power drivers which meet the EIA-562 Standard. (Used on notebooks and laptops.)

Then I installed the waypoint upload software to my ten years old Compaq Presario and suddenly I could upload routes and waypoints but only via the on board serial port. The serial-to-usb converter didn't still work.

So if people experience no result trying to upload data to these old GP-30's from their notebooks and laptops. Then I think it could be a matter of these Low voltage ports not are able to provide the FURUNO device with enough voltage. See the above RS232 Tutorial.

Best Regards
