Burnt out LCD B&W screen on Northstar 951X GPS.


Electro Mavin (mavin.com) sell replacement new unused Optrex DMF-50174 Displays units for $25.00. Order one.
Take small screws out of the back of the Northstar 951x and carefully remove the cover, disconnect the old display unit (just one ribbon, one power connector and two screws).
Replace the display with the new one.
Replace cover and screws.
Now take your loved ones on a small holiday with the money you just saved yourself!

Waypoints and nav log


Based on your description I would suspect that the internal memory battery is depleted and needs to be replaced. This battery is required to retain waypoint and route information when the input power is low or turned off. The battery is soldered onto the main circuit board and needs to be replaced by a technician having good soldering skills and access to instructions for the disassembly and reassembly of the unit. There is a list of dealers on the Northstar website. Review the list and make a couple of phone calls to see which ones will do bench work on this unit.

Gps loses signal


It would be good to make sure that the 951 software is up to date. The most recent software upgrade includes new code required due to changes that have been made to the GPS system. You can download the software for free from the Northstar web site but it requires a loader cable, power supply and a Windows based PC to perform the update. Most Noprthstar dealers know how to do this but they will charge for their time. The GPS antenna should be mounted where it has a 360 degree uninhibited view of the sky right down to the horizon to get best performance. Basicially any conductive material including pigmented paint, tinted glass or wet canvas can block the signal. Inspect the GPS coaxial cable and it's connections for any signs of corrosion or contamination. Sometimes just removing and reinstalling the connections is enough to remove contamination and get better performance. If in doubt concerning the coax and it's connections, temporaily substitute a new coax assy by-passing the existing cable to see if this makes a difference. You can monitor changes from the GPS status page. See the user manual for information concerning how to understand the numbers being presented. You should be tracking at least 4 SATs with signal levels higher than 30. Generally 95% of all GPS signal issues are related to the coax or its connections.
