Question about GPS

2 Answers

Hi Guys, I am in need of a GPS antenna module to mate up with my Eagle AccuNav 11(2) GPS. Original unit was called EGP-1 or EGC-1 but nothing available. Even the module specs. would be helpful in order to have one made up. Any advice?? Cheers....Bryan.

    Thanks Mate but I don't have a GPS 45. I have an Eagle AccuNav 11!

  • Bryan Sear Feb 06, 2010

    Can anyone else come up with a solution??
    Cheers....Bryan.

    Thanks Pabloloco. Checked out the site but most of the external or patch antennas require an internal antenna which my unit doesn't have.

    Cheers....Bryan

No luck finding you an antenna module in a box to purchase, but I do know where you can get some technical information if you are so inclined to get your AccuNav II running again instead of replacing it.

This page has some good technical links, including pinout diagrams and homebrew external antennae.

I hope that helps.

Hi, you can make up the antenna your self by reading this below....

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} What is the GPS 40/38/12XL internal antenna?

It is a "patch" antenna design. The same antenna is also used on the optional
remote antennas GA 27 (GPS 40) and GA 26 (GPS 45) except that the remote
antennas are amplified.

How is the GPS 45/90/89/II antenna internally constructed?

Thanks to a friend whose GPS 45 antenna case split open, we
were able to examine the antenna construction. It is a quad-helix circular
polarized antenna. It basically looks like a double sided flexible circuit
board rolled into about a 1/2 inch diameter cylinder. It has 4 spiral
elements that look like the stripes on a candy cane. It is definitely a
a passive (non-amplified) antenna. However, it does work very well.
Several people have reported that when the plastic protective antenna case
is removed, it doesn't work as well due to detuning the antenna.

Someone has X-rayed their GPS 45 antenna and scanned the image.
Look at the files grm45ant.gif and grm45ant.inf on Peter Bennett's www/ftp
site.

Replacement antennas cost $100 from Garmin which is a little expensive in
my opinion.

Eagle 462c will not power up


I called Lowrance and since Eagle has been discontinued, they no longer service them. However, they will offer to upgrade to Lowrance. I ended up getting a HDS-5 for $480.00. Not a bad deal since my Eagle was toast.

Machine does not acquire its GPS position. If it does it can take up to 45 mins to achive. Can I put an external antenna on it? The unit is used in an open boat, so has clear access to the sky, so should...


your antenna is probably original and obsolete see if you have a RayStar 120, if so, it is junk. The RayStar 125 is plug and play for you and sells around 300. Your GPS is a self contained receiver, that means it uses 12 V and output computer language. If you have no power to the seatalk antenna, you get nothing. If it is intermittent as you describe, 90% chanace it is the antenna, (mushroom or puck). 847-746-0100

No maps on garmin nuvie 200


You will have to send it to Garmin with the original receipt and see if they'll reload the maps the unit came with. There may be a charge for this.

Eagle only gives out a 1 year warranty on their products, so as far as I know you wont be able to get it fixed for free, but I would email them and see what they say.
