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”.

Connection to PC for Nav software


Assuming you have GPS input to your 1732 (i.e. GP310/320 sensor), you'll need a 7 pin NMEA data cable (000-154-028) wired to a D-sub 9 pin (serial) plug. The shield goes to pin 5, blue to #3, & white to #2. Jumper pins 7 & 8 together. The 7 pin cable goes to Data port 3 of the 1732.

I have bought a ICOM VHF m601 and I want to connect the furuno gps 31 to the VHF. Is this possible ?


Using the nmea output from your GP-31 to the nmea input on the VHF. Enable the GLL Sentence and make sure the port is set for nmea0183. Remember hooking nmea up it's positive to positive and neg to neg. Once that is done and you have a fix you should have lat and long on your vhf.

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.

Can we connct furuno gp31 to pc


Hello!
Yes, the GP31 can connect to a PC.  With the wiring harness, it has an RS-232 port, which allows it to connect to most PCs, laptops, and even most palmtop systems.
Hope this helps you out,

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
