Question about Furuno GP31 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Furuno GP 30-35 GPS

Unit will not reset waypoints. When first turned on the unit will go to whatever waypoint was selected. However, it will no change waypoints when selecting a different one. Also, on self test the unit shows NG for DATA POINT 2 which is set to BEACON.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this

How to interface a furuno 1833c navnet to a usb port and how to download waypoints to my pc.I have the older 9 pin pc cable and a usb adapter cable.Looking for usb drivers and software to make it work.


The display uses a serial interface, otherwise known as a comm port. You can get a USB to DB9 adaptor practically anywhere. Once you have a serial connection, you will need software such as MaxSea to send the waypoint with.

Memory full, cant delete stored favourite destinations, sat nav turns off when delete is pressed.


Hello vinny!!

Perform a hard reset to clear all your memory!!!


Step 1. Turn your Nuvi unit off, remove any SD cards from the SD card slot and make sure that the unit is not plugged into any computer.
Step 2. Place a fingertip on the upper left hand corner of the touch screen and keep it there while turning the unit on, a prompt should read " Do you really want to start in maintenance mode?"
Step 3. Select the yes button.
Step 4. Enter your PIN if enabled.
Step 5. Main Maintenance Mode screen should have 4 selections:
System information
View Diagnostics
Clear User data
Clear Waypoints
Step 6. Choose "Clear Waypoints". After some time the unit should reboot.

Waypoints


Hi there

Sounds lie it has a memory problem... perhaps a failed internal memory chip... are you using an external mem card with it as well?

Upload waypoints via laptop


Quite honestly, this is not worth the trouble. It easier to re-enter the waypoints manually. If you want to try it, you need to get some GPS connection software from someone like: http://www.gpsu.co.uk/. You cannot do it with your PC and cable alone. Good luck.

Hi fire1961,

Downloading data from my FURUNO GP-30 gave me no problems. But it took me long time to figure out why I coudn't upload waypoints and routes to the GP-30 via the serial port in my ThinkPad T30.

I tried nearly everything tested the cable, tested a lot of different software and even wrote a little c-program to communicate with the serial port. I also tried a serial-to-usb converter with no results. Then I stumbled over this RS232 Tutorial. According to this - serial ports are not just serial port but can be divided into three general categories:

The types of driver ICs used in serial ports can be divided into three general categories:

* Drivers which require plus (+) and minus (-) voltage power supplies such as the 1488 series of interface integrated circuits. (Most desktop and tower PCs use this type of driver.)
* Low power drivers which require one +5 volt power supply. This type of driver has an internal charge pump for voltage conversion. (Many industrial microprocessor controls use this type of driver.)
* Low voltage (3.3 v) and low power drivers which meet the EIA-562 Standard. (Used on notebooks and laptops.)

Then I installed the waypoint upload software to my ten years old Compaq Presario and suddenly I could upload routes and waypoints but only via the on board serial port. The serial-to-usb converter didn't still work.

So if people experience no result trying to upload data to these old GP-30's from their notebooks and laptops. Then I think it could be a matter of these Low voltage ports not are able to provide the FURUNO device with enough voltage. See the above RS232 Tutorial.

Best Regards

Display position on PC


Hi miguel09,

You could try SeaClear It's free and runs not only on Windows systems but also on Linux with Wine. If you want to upload routes and waypoints then you can use this software from Furuno.

SD Card slot Garmin nuvii 260


I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.

When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

Waypoints and nav log


Based on your description I would suspect that the internal memory battery is depleted and needs to be replaced. This battery is required to retain waypoint and route information when the input power is low or turned off. The battery is soldered onto the main circuit board and needs to be replaced by a technician having good soldering skills and access to instructions for the disassembly and reassembly of the unit. There is a list of dealers on the Northstar website. Review the list and make a couple of phone calls to see which ones will do bench work on this unit.
