The only place to get that screen is through a Furuno authorized dealer. The unit is sealed and gas filled to remain waterproof. You're best bet would be to send the unit in to Furuno for repair. You wont save much doing it yourself because the cost of the screen makes up most of the cost of the repair. They will also make sure that all the software is up to date for the new WAAS satellites that recently went on line.

Have you tried adjusting the contrast? On that model I believe you tap the power key while the unit is on and you will see 2 sliding scales on the screen, one for brightness and one for contrast. Up or down arrows select the scale and left or right arrows adjust it. If the contrast and brightmness aren't tied into the power key on that model, they're somewhere in the set up menu.

If adjusting the contrast doesn't help then the screen has most likely failed. This is commonly caused by old age, however repeated exposure to extreme heat or cold can cause premature failure.

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.

SOURCE: furuno gps wiring diagram for usb

Hello!
I have the connection diagram for the GPS unit below.  It should be simple to wire up.  You will need a USB to RS-232 converter, which is available in a number of computer shops/Radio Shack.
Hope this helps you out,

SOURCE: may i upgrade furuno 1920 gps/ploter with radar

If it has a round radar plug in the back then the answer is yes and it already has radar support. However to upgrade your unit to the latest software you will need a dealer for that. It's a very tricky process and if not done properly, you can ruin the bootloader programming that starts the unit. I know of a dealer that does this if you want to check in with them. You can even send them the unit. Try www.mid-shore-electronics.com.

Antenna GPS Tram 1655 is compatible with GPS FURUNO?


If the Furuno unit you're referring to uses a GPS antenna with a coax (i.e. GP31/32) then the Tram antenna will work but the connector is wrong. The Tram antennas usually come with BNC connector and Furuno uses a TNC. Will need an adapter.

Congratulations the device is within functionality. As a matter of fact devices without shark lense are least impactful. For example, the device may least capture images or receive data in realtime however provides accurate flight resources.

Screen on GP 32 is washed out. Where can I get a new display


Contact your local Furuno dealer. That system uses the popular RD-30 display unit and should be rather avalible.

My furuno navnet vx2 periodically freezes during operation and must be restarted. Any suggestions?


Reinstall the operating software. The unit should probably go to Furuno.
Try operating it with only a GPS connected (no radar, no network). If this resolves it, it is almost certainly software. It could be low voltage or failing mother board.
