Question about SI-TEX Nautilus NT GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Nautilus problems Hi, I have a sitex nautilus dgps unit i purchased new in 2000. it has been a couple of years since i used it for navagation and i have run into a couple of problems. the antenna is a dgps antennia, and i am receiving a good signal to the unit. i have always had a problem with the screen refreshment rate. it refreshes slowly all of the time (constantly) and makes it impossible to navagate using the unit. i see my position on the map for a second or two, and then the screen refreshes for 30 - 40 seconds (at any speed, slow or fast). i usually use it in the headup mode, but have tried switching it to the north up mode, and it made no difference. is this the way the older units work because of "weak" processing power? i also have a problem trying to follow a route. the route is reversed, and i can not get it to switch back to the original direction the route was made in. pushing the reverse route button does not change it back to the normal direction.

Hello:

I also have the Nautilus & the processor just isn't as fast as the newer units. You can adjust the track up mode to only refresh when the rotation of the map is over a cert amount, degrees, (resloution angle) if you have it set to a low value it will continually keep the route dead up & constantly refresh.

See section 4.3 Map orientation in the manual.

On the route reversal are you getting the pop up screen that alerts you that the route has been reversed?

I assume you have a manual?

I am actually contemplating selling my unit as I have a Garmin 478 from work & the screen is much easier to read in the bright sunlight. I had my Sitex on my Grady which had a bimini, but my Mako CC does not & the sunlight washes it out.

I'm thinking $375 for the whole unit with a wide area chart of MA.

Frequently switches from dgps to gps fix .Why is this?


DGPS only works in areas where there is a DGPS beacon, and they're simply not that commonplace. Unlike orbiting GPS satellites, DGPS beacons are fixed land based devices.

When there's no DGPS beacon, the unit automatically reverts to the regular and slightly less accurate GPS.

Hi,I need a replacement battery pack for my Sitex handheld VHF HH-250.Thanks Original 8N-600


What you need is at the VERY least is a Ni-Cd battery pack with 600mA/hr rating. We have an HH-300, with a configuration of 4AAx2.

Interstate Batteries has the BEST price I could find, although when we bought the HH-300, I sent it to SiTex for a new battery AND a tune-up which cost around $100.
Here's the link to the Interstate battery website.

Hope this helps.

(EDIT)
Do NOT forget that these radios are wired center pin negative! (Don't ask how I found this out...)

The start timer control cycles but nothing happens. The motor seems to gurgle while attempting to fill with water - but no water comes through. We have had this problem before and the repair person...


I bought a new one and installed it myself. hardest part of installing was taking the old unit out. I compared the cost of a second repair of a 10 year old dishwasher vs. purchasing a new one. We also checked the pump and solenoid to find problems that caused the water not to enter the unit. The new one we purchased is much better, quieter, and Energy Star.

Alternative to Leica Laser Locator


Leica locator with DGPS capabilities? Leica still manufactor advanced military systems under the Swiss brand name of Vectronix which is part of the Leica group. Are you after a laser locator or a rangefinder such as the discontinued 7x42 Geovid. The Geovid is still available but no longer has the electronic compass. The original never did connect to a DGPS PC only the Leica Vectronix Vector could. None of these models will locate a laser only use a laser to calculate distance. Current Geovids range to 1200 meters and the Vectronix 21 will range to 12 Kilometers. Unless you are a certified government customer the Vectronix 21 you will not be able to purchase. Newcon have models that allegedy exceed 2000 meters that are made in Russia and depending on the model can be had for a few thousand dollars. The Leica Geovid 8, 10 or 15 power can be had for around 2.5 thousand to 3 thousand dollars and is an excellent robust unit. It will not connect to a PC for GPS sync though.
