Question about Garmin GPSMAP 76Cx GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Using a DGPS on a 76csx

I was wondering if you can connect dgps receivers like the Garmin GBR-21 to the 76cx series. I know in the past there has been an option for RTCM connections on previous 76 series units, but it seems to be gone for the interface options, yet the specifications i have found online for the unit includes RCTM input. Can anyone shed some light on this?

There is no possibility to use DGPS with 76csx... due to the fact that 76csx receivers use chipset the 'sirf star III' series and this chipsets don't allow use any RTCM data.

Frequently switches from dgps to gps fix .Why is this?


DGPS only works in areas where there is a DGPS beacon, and they're simply not that commonplace. Unlike orbiting GPS satellites, DGPS beacons are fixed land based devices.

When there's no DGPS beacon, the unit automatically reverts to the regular and slightly less accurate GPS.

Nautilus problems


Hello:

I also have the Nautilus & the processor just isn't as fast as the newer units. You can adjust the track up mode to only refresh when the rotation of the map is over a cert amount, degrees, (resloution angle) if you have it set to a low value it will continually keep the route dead up & constantly refresh.

See section 4.3 Map orientation in the manual.

On the route reversal are you getting the pop up screen that alerts you that the route has been reversed?

I assume you have a manual?

I am actually contemplating selling my unit as I have a Garmin 478 from work & the screen is much easier to read in the bright sunlight. I had my Sitex on my Grady which had a bimini, but my Mako CC does not & the sunlight washes it out.

I'm thinking $375 for the whole unit with a wide area chart of MA.

sounds like the problem is with the pilot. You may be expecting too much from nav mode you should check the antenna connector on the WAAS issue
