Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

I just received a model #441 S from West Marine. My boat is moored in Alburgh, Vermont USA. It's about 1 miles south of the Canadian border. The unit won't show any chart untill about 2-3 miles south of the canadian border. I'm sailing on Lake Champlain , on the US side only but i'd like to get the chart for that portion very close to the border. Is the unit defective? Do I have to buy an additional card? I really only need the charth with the depth data.

You will need to get the Canadian Bluechart Card also. At this time Garmin doesn't pre-load the units with Canadian Charts. Maybe in the future. Here is a link to the card you will need.

How do I change my American standard horizon hx851 to receive Australian channels


To change this radio from Canadian to USA or to International frequency band plans, hold down the [16/9] key and press the [CLR (WX)] key. The band will change from Canadian, to USA, then to International on each press.
Australia uses the International marine band plan.
Have fun.

How do I repair a cracked Furuno Radome? The top white part is cracked from a tree branch


No, a quarter sized blank area around boat on lowest 1/8 mile range is normal. The dome cover is available for just over $100., so why risk a leak?

Is there a chip in my key for a 01 hyundai tiburon


Tiburon only came equipped with transponder chips/immobilizers on vehicles that were for sale in the Canadian market. USA models did not use transponder chips. It is not uncommon to see a Canadian model in the US, especially in northern border states.

Try West Marine. They have lots of boat parts. I found one link for sealant:

If this isn't what you're looking for, search from their home page.
You can also look up you boat maker's website and get their recommendations.

Best regards, --W/D--

I can send you a powerpoint presentation that explains it in a little more detail. To really learn how to read latitude and longitude you should pick up a copy of “Chapman’s Piloting and Seamanship.”

The earth is divided into parallels of latitude and meridians of longitude, also known as lines of position.

Latitude is measured north and south of the equator, with the equator represented as 0 degrees, and the poles being represented as 90 degrees North or South. Latitude lines are paralel to the equator. For example, if I was at the equator I would be at 0 degrees. If I traveled exactly 60 nautical miles to the north, I would be at 1 degree North, and if I traveled another 60 miles I would be at 2 degrees north. Your GPS display will preface the Latitude measurement with an “N” for positions North of the equator and an “S” for positions south of the equator.

Longitude measures your position east or west from the Prime Meridian, which is a line represented as 0 degrees that bisects the earth from north to south and passes through Greenwich England. Halfway around the earth at the International Dateline Longitude is 180 degrees. Measuring Longitude is a little more complicated because the lines are not parallel and requires an accurate clock (your GPS) to compare time at your location relative to the time in Greenwich England. Your GPS display will preface the Longitude measurement with a “W” for positions west of Greenwich and an “E” for positions east of Greenwich.

To make more accurate measurements each degree is divided into 60 minutes. Because the lines are parallel, 1 minute of latitude is equal to 1 nautical mile. Each minute can be further divided into 60 seconds. Each second is roughly equivalent to a distance of 100’ Instead of seconds, the default setting on your Garmin breaks the minute down into tenths, hundredths, and thousandths for meven more precise measurements. Because they are not parallel, lines of Longitude are measured the same way, but the distances vary depending on how far north or south of the equator.

To find out where you are with a GPS, you need a map that shows lines of latitude and longitude on it. The lines will be labeled on the map or along the borders of the map. Most nautical charts show the latitude measurements along the right the left border of the map. Longitude measuremnts will be shown along the top and bottom edges.
