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.

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”.

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.

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".

On the GPS Garmin the radar screen shows our boat turned the wrong way. How do you turn the boat around on screen?


My husband moved the boat slightly and it seemed to correct the radar screen somewhat. He is working on the whole boat at present so didn't want to take it completely for a drive down the river. If we have further problems we may call in or use the web site.

Thanks,

Farrar

Where do all the wiring go to on the garmin 400c


The rest of the wires are for interfacing (letting the unit 'talk') with other devices such as radar or GPS. These wires/colors are pretty standard and defined by NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association). You need wiring diagrams for the devices to hook them up. For fun, see where 'nema' takes you with Google.
