Question about Humminbird Matrix 17 GPS Receiver

Open Question

I want to connect Hummingbird Matrix 17 sounder to hand-held GPS

There are 2 ports on the sounder unit - a square one (5mm x 5mm) with 4 female connection points and a rectangular one (about 8mm x 4mm) with 6 female connection points. Which one is for GPS?

Is there a special cable for connecting the GPS to sounder?

Hummingbird will refurbish that one for around 150US dollars, better then 500+ for a new one. If the screen is subjected to direct sunlight and heats up it can go out. This is why they discontinued the 67 model and replaced it with the 767.

All Hummingbird products manufactured for use in the United States only read in English, fathoms, feet,miles. You would have to see your dealer about a metric unit.

I have Radioshack wireless headphones with a 30 foot range. I cannot hook them up to my new Panasonic Viera 42 inch HD T.V. - The "audio outlet" is a square and the headphones only have red and...


hi there.

At present, the square connector is what is called an "Optical" connector.  It's purely digital and transmits digital data via what looks to us like a RED LIGHT.  Your headphones are incompatible. Your heaphones have an analog connection on RCA Phono type connections.  The type you usually get on the back of hifi equipment.

The pannasonics DO have a headphone socket, but it is the small 3.5mm type socket.  a small round hole that looks slightly larger than a pin head.  It normally has a small diagram of a pair of headphones above or below the socket to indicate what it is.

 

In order to connect your headphones to your set you will need a stereo,male 3.5mm jack to two RCA Phono jacks. 

 

If your current lead on your headphones has "male" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold points sticking out.

If your current lead on your headphones has "female" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold surrounds with holes in.

 

With this in mind, if you have male ends you will require a stereo 3.5mm jack to stereo female Rca Phono vice versa so that they basically lock into eachother forming a "Constant chain".

 

I have tried to explain this as best I can, I hope you've managed to get the idea of what I'm saying.

 

 

 

You will either need this :

or this :

Sometimes the colours of connectors vary.  Just remember that Red to Red (for right hand side)  and White to White or Black To White  or Black To Black (for left)

I understand that matrix 12 is GPS ready ,how do i connect GPS to unit


The GPS system is already in the sounder, you need the G.P.S aerial which is purchased separately. I have this model with the aerial connected and it works well

Hwer to conect all the wires?


If you connect the unit to another unit, that either sends or receives data on the NMEA network, the in/out wires are used to transfer that data. If you do not have any unit for that purpose, you don't need to have them connected anywhere.

Hummingbird gps ns25


Hi!
here's a user manual/installation manual for your sounder:
NS25
If the depth sounder portion works, I would suspect the settings are off (check first) or the gps circuit needs repair.
Best of luck!

evidently the installer put 2 inline fuses to the power line. After more investigating I located the second fuse which was blown.
