If your GPS was sending NMEA data and now is not, your NMEA configuration may have been inadvertently changed, either due to a user error, or possibly a software glitch.

You can configure the unit to use specific NMEA sentences.
1. Press MENU|MENU| then scroll down to SYSTEM SETUP and press |ENT.
2. Scroll down to COMMUNICATIONS PORT, then press ENT then scroll down to CONFIGURE NMEA and press ENT.
3. A menu appears showing the prefixes of the available NMEA sentences.
A check mark next to a prefix means the prefix is in use. Use the arrow keys (on the track pad) like a mouse to select a prefix, then press ENT to turn off the prefix. (Press
ENT again to check the box and turn a prefix on.)
I'm not exactly sure how the data is labeled on that model but you looking for a sentence that looks like an abbreviation for GPS Lat Lon (it may be something like GPLL). If you're not sure, turn them all on, the VHF will only use the sentences it recognizes.
4. When the desired prefixes are checked or unchecked, press
EXIT|EXIT|EXIT|EXIT to return to the previous page.

let me know if this worked for you, or if I may be of further assistance.

Dear Sir.I would like to know that the availability of navman tracker 5505,5605 or 5507. I am ver interested to place an online order for the Tracker 5505.thank you. Ahmed Rasheed.Maldives, e mail. ah


The NAVMAN trackers are no longer available as the company stopped making marine products. You can however find current products at www.lowrance.com.
The closest you can find is a Lowrance Elite 5mHD
http://www.chsmith.com.au/Products/Lowrance-Elite-5m-HD-Chartplotter.html

In case you want to refer to a manual for 5505/06 refer this site.

http://www.navmanmarine.net/upload/Marine/Internet_Manuals/Tracker5505_5605/English_T5505_5605_manual.pdf

You can still find some old 5505 units at speciality marine online stores. Give this a try.

My navman 7100 vhf radio is mall functioning. the buttonns on the mic are doing different options than what they are suppose to do. also unable to transmit messages but can make mmsi digital calls, i can...


Too late to help op, but trying to fix one with same symptoms, found a broken wire in the microphone cable near the handset, as I'd suspected. The cable appears to be a curly shielded 8 conductor, one of which (presumably the mike) appears to also have a shield - found a seller on ebay US that appears a suitable cable for about £16

My Eagle 642C iGPS does not work with Lakemaster chip


If you do not have the most current software upgrade, that may be the problem. Go to www.eaglenav.com. If a more current software is available, download per their instructions. Worth a try. That unit should display LakeMaster digital chars.

Navman VHF 7100 Radio neither receiving nor transmitting


I would suggest checking your antenna/coax connector. I am not sure what kind of antenna or ,mount you are using but I would suspect it being something in the antenna. Most radios are designed to not transmit if the antenna is broke or not connected at all. When you say bent do you mean metal bent or bent at the base? So that would be where I start. Can you try a different antenna? Hope you track it down. N5ARK

Cannot access main menu or pages screen


I think I can help with your issue. I have an LMS 334c and have had a few issues in the past. Called the factory (this answer is not listed any where in your manual) and they instructed me to "Soft Re Boot" my unit and it would put everything back to factory settings. Try this anytime it does not respond for whatever reason.

Turn the unit off.

At the same time press the Pages and Power button. Hold both down until you see the square box come up in the screen. You should have your factory settings again. May need to try a few times.
Lowrance said it works just like a computer, ever now and then it just tries to disect to much information at one time and hangs up.
Good luck. James Cantwell

Lowrance will give me a mob position but will not set automatically for running positions stay 0


I would like to help but I'm not sure I understand the question.

Are you saying that when you push the zoom in and zoom ou key at the same time you get a correct position, but you can't see a box that gives your real time position?

Is your map page set to show data on the right side of the screen? If not, press the page key and select the map/data page. This should give you some information on the screen which includes your current position, updated every second.

If I missed the mark with this answer, please give me some more details so I can help.
