Ais and 1920c Furuno chart plotter

I have connected a Furuno fa-100 AIS to a 1920c Furuno Chart Plotter through a 1500 Interface unit according to the instructions that came with the interface unit. The AIS feature soft key remains grey and the symbols do not show up on the chart plotter. The chart plotter has the 320b GPS receiver antenna. It is connected to port 2 on the 1920c. Please help.

    I can't see how having the bearings displayed in the magnetic mode instead of true can have anything to do with the fact that the chartplotter doesn't seem to recognize the AIS.

    I finally managed to get the chartplotter to show the AIS targets. I had hooked the 1500 Interface to the connection box exactly as the book that came with interface showed. When nothing that I tried worked ( adjusting the settings on the AIS and the chartplotter, checking the connections over and over and asking advice from the ship's Engineer and anybody else that I thought might know a solution) I was ready to admit defeat and call a Technician in to fix it. In desperation I tried hooking it using the schematic that came with the AIS and it worked. I had it hooked that way at the start but decided that because the manual for the Interface spelled out how the connection should be made I should go with it. That was the mistake.

Utstanding reputation of Furuno's original NavNet network's reliability, performance, and expandability. Like its predecessor, the NavNet VX2 System combines radar, GPS/WAAS chartplotter, fishfinder, and network weather FAX. From a stand-alone, single station, multifunction navigation center to a four-station integrated navigation network, NavNet VX2 lets you build your navigation system specifically to your needs. Utilizing state-of-the-art Ethernet network technology, NavNet VX2 provides seamless data sharing and vast future expandability while remaining completely compatible with the first generation NavNet System. Whether it is the radar and GPS/WAAS antennas that connect directly to the NavNet VX2 displays or the optional network sensors that connect through the Ethernet network, all of the data obtained from each sensor can be shared and controlled by every display on the network. Once you select your display package, plug the network black box sounder into any display or an Ethernet hub and turn the NavNet VX2 display into a high performance dual-frequency fishfinder. The BBWX1 Sirius Satellite Weather Receiver works with the C-Map MAX Displays to show weather maps, satellite images, NAVTEX, and other navigation information. And it doesn't stop there. The Rate Compensated Heading Sensor allows radar images to be overlaid on the chartplotter. The options and configurations are too numerous to list. The reality is Furuno's wide range of options fulfills virtually every need you may have for your navigation system. So dream up your ideal Furuno navigation system, and we'll help you put it together.

The 10.4" NavNet VX2 Display Package comes with one of eight different commercial-grade Furuno radar antennas. The output power of the antennas range from the sleek 2.2 kW radome to a powerful 25 kW open array. The 7" NavNet VX2 is available with your choice of a 2.2 kw or 4 kw radome antenna.

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”.

Try removing your chart card then powering up your unit. Chances are your chart could be bad and is causing the problem.

My ais targets are out of line showing them out of the river


If the AIS targets are out compared with radar target then turn compass to superimpose radar on to AIS.
If the AIS info is out compared with chart then suspect GPS. This could be yours or theirs depending on how many targets are out and whether it consistantly in one direction.
Good luck

Hi Matt,

There is a feature in these chartplotters called "Plotter Mode" that is often misunderstood and causes the exact problem you describe.

Press menu.....chart setup.....and scroll to the bottom until you see Plotter Mode in the list of options. It should be set in the OFF position.

If you have more than one display networked onboard check the setting in each one invividually.

What Plotter Mode does is allows the chartplotter system to access range scales not supported on the chart. It is not normally used for map-based navigation but more so for chartless electronic plotting (it can display routes, waypoints and track-recorder breadcrumbs.) open-ocean cruising, or for ultra-precise GPS operations (like a precision anchor drop, finding a very specific location etc. When plotter mode is on you can zoom in to a very, very small working area. The indicator it is enable is the cross-hatch background on the screen, the lack of map information, and the NO CHART DATA watermark on the screen.
