Garmine Marine Network Wiring

Garmin Marine Network uses an Ethernet like standard for high speed transmission between Ploters, Radar etc. I have tried to connect two GPSMAP 3205 plotters using standard Ethernet RJ45 connection (1) using straightthrough and (2) using a cross over cable. Neither connection works 100% so I suspect Garmin have their own wiring. They sell unterminated cable and connectors but nowhere on the Internet can I find how to connect these items.
Any ideas?

There is nothing unique to Garmins wiring so an ethernet cable should work. I think it's a crossover but I did it a year ago so I could be mistaken. It's possible that the cable isn't fully connecting because they have added that big knurled screw on part to make it water proof. I had a problem with a Raymarine recently and it turned out to be a defective cable. If you purchase Garmin's connector it comes with instructions on how to assemble. You need a special crimping tool. I bought mine from Radio Shack for @ $40. You could probably save money by buying 2 connectors and cutting the ends off your ethernet cables.

We have a garmin gps map 4012 and on radar just says radar error


This is a marine chartplotter and radar unit! I thought I didn't recognize the model :>) Check the connections are the rear, but more importantly to the connections to the radar dome.

The manual is here, but doesn't mention errors. You could of course contact Garmin direct.

Ais and 1920c Furuno chart plotter


n the system setup, under “UNITS” I set BEARING to “MAG” (magnetic). This will cause the unit to display course / bearing information in relation to the Magnetic North and match magnetic compass readings. It is not the same as True North! One has to be careful with this setting. There are a number of areas where the earth's magnetic field is locally disturbed, sometimes very significantly. Your GPS may not account for it. - again, under “UNITS” I set “METRIC”.

1. What is the average life span of a marine radar? 2. Where is the TR cell located? 3. How to test a marine Radar?


The life span of the radar depends on its use.
There are consumables inside, mainly the Magnetron and the scanner motor assembly, the life of which depend on running hours. The life of Display is high compared to these two.
The TR cell is located in the wave path before the receiver(detector/MIC)
Most Radars have a menu function for 'Test".

My husbands garmine nuvi 1390 is stuck on the loading maps screen. We have tried shutting it down but it stays on the map screen


PRobably needs a firmware restore. Go to Garmin Reset. If it fails you need a new logic board. If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.

My map on my garmine 60csx doesnt line up with the actual locations


The most common cause of consistent offset is DATUM selection. The DATUM was likely set to WGS84 at the time of recording then viewed later in NAD27, or vice versa.

Geocaching.com uses WGS84. The USGS generally uses NAD27

Also see this Garmin page. The DATUM is set under Settings | System if I recall correctly.

Garmin nuvii 350-anyway to install marine charts on this unit?


No. This unit is not designed for marine use, and therefore is not designed to accept marine charts.

I have been doing some research and I haven’t been able to determine if the Garmin has a compatible output for your Furuno. I can not recommend any service center particularly since I have no idea where you are located, but any good marine shop should be able to help you.

The Furuno uses NMEA Inputs for the GPS, and like I said I haven’t been able to determine if that Garmin uses that as an output. I would suggest that you inspect your installation to determine if there are any cableing between the two units. If no wires connect the two that you can be sure that the units are not communicating.

As far as the chartplotter goes you can buy data cards for them, either on-line or from a good marine supply store.
