Speed calibration
Speed calibration involves aligning the log speed (Speed Through
Water) to the Speed over ground (SOG), under zero tide conditions.
The object of speed calibration is to ensure that the speed readings
at the instruments are true indications of the boat speed.
Speed transducer performance is affected by its position and
water-flow characteristics at different speeds. It is advisable to carry
out calibration at various speeds across the range of your boat.
Calibrating speed (conventional transducers)
• You will need an accurate speed over ground (SOG) value, e.g.
determined from a GPS connected into your SeaTalk system.
• You will need to be underway, with sufficient space to maneuver
unhindered.
7
• Conditions should be calm water with a slack tide.
4. When complete press ENTER to save the settings and return
to the transducer setup menu.
Note: It is important that there is no tide. The affect of tidal
current would be to prevent an accurate speed calibration.
With the list of transducers available displayed from the Transducer
Setup menu:
1. Press ENTER to proceed to the transducer setup options.
2. Select Speed then Calibration from the available options.
3. Calibrate each speed as follows, starting with the lowest:
2 KTS
1.8

Speed reading (calculated using log speed and calibration factor)
i. Use the arrow keys to select the required calibration speed.
ii. Adjust your boat speed until the SOG is at the desired
calibration speed.
iii. Adjust the calibration factor, until the SOG and Speed reading
are the same.
iv. Repeat this for each calibration speed valid for your boat.
Speeds which fall outside your boat’s capability need not be
calibrated.

Calibrating speed (smart transducers)
A DST (Depth, Speed, Temperature) smart transducer has a
default calibration setting which provides acceptable transducer
performance in most circumstances. However you can perform your
own calibration to suit your boat.
With the list of transducers available displayed from the Transducer
Setup menu:
1. Press ENTER to proceed to the transducer setup options.
2. Select Speed Calibration from the available options.
The screen will display a list of speeds to which the DST800
transducer is calibrated.
