RADAR & PLOTTER


The vessel is furnished with a Furuno Radar Plotter mod M-1824C (must be verified).

 Some notes on:
  • Downloading track data
  • Using GPS data re-transmitted by the unit.

1.  Downloading track data


Seems that track data can only be transferred via SD memory card. Data is binary coded (cannot be read in ordinary editor). Original filename was GP1650B.TRK; renamed GP1650B.TRK.txt.

Memory card must be Secure Digital (SD) type - not Multi Media Card (MMC).

2.  Using retransmitted GPS data


GPS data is re-transmitted on the DATA 4 port at the rear side. Suitable interface cable:

  • Product = "NET-DWN-CBL"
  • Desc: "NAVNET PC DATA BACK-UP CABLE

Setup of Radar/Plotter:

  • Menu -> System Configuration -> System Setup -> Port Setup -> DATA4:PC/NMEA/EXT. BUZZ PORT
  • Chose SELECT SNTNC
  • Enable only GLL and RMC

This is what you then get:

Example data capture port DATA4 on Rader/Plotter
