    This sounds like maybe you have 2 data steams feeding your display.
    Troubleshooting this would require a complete explanation of attached devices!

SOURCE: hello i have an furuno

Yes they are soldered in. They have a hot glue on top. You can heat up the glue and scrape it away. Then heat up the solder and remove the batteries and place new solder on the new battery terminal connections

Antenna GPS Tram 1655 is compatible with GPS FURUNO?


If the Furuno unit you're referring to uses a GPS antenna with a coax (i.e. GP31/32) then the Tram antenna will work but the connector is wrong. The Tram antennas usually come with BNC connector and Furuno uses a TNC. Will need an adapter.

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”.

Hi!

Your Furuno Does NOT have an internal antenna. You have no choice but to install the external one.

Hope this helps.

unplug the radar from it and turn on the display. If that does not blow the fuse, then your problem is either in the cable to the antenna or the antenna itself. Start there.

Furuno 1942Mk2 Problem


it cannot determine a heading, have you also damaged an internal antenna or positioning / gps device inside it? It is unsure which direction it is pointing in but uses triangulation to determine this.

That requires either an electronic compass unit, or gps to achieve correct heading and hence correct orientation of the radar image

My radar displays all contacts reverse. How do I get the display reversed? model #1731


I agree with Nico-Fixus, the heading alignment is one of the things to be checked. Unless this is a new installation it is unlikely that the Radome (antenna) got removed and reinstalled facing the wrong way. So antenna orientation would not be a concern.

I have seen units that for some reason the wrong Radome was selected in the configuration of the Navnet display.

Read the model number on the Antenna, then check that correct antenna type in loaded in your display.

Furuno 1623 Radar reading "no heading pulse"


The messages “NO HEADING PULSE” and “NO BEARING PULSE” means that the display is not communicating with the scanner (antenna). Both of these signals are generated in the scanner if you get this error check that the antenna cable is firmly connected and that the contacts are clean and corrosion free.

If the connection at the display looks good and feels like it’s properly connected, check the cable for any damage If you find damage you could try to repair the wires BUT (because of corrosion and moisture problems) IT IS STRONGLY REMENDED that the cable be replaced, but it’s kind of expensive $275.00.

The Part number is 000-130-034. Depending on the marine shops in your area they may have it in stock (or they can order one) but you can get it directly from Furuno at;

I hope it’s just a loose connection. Good luck!
