Congratulations on you purchase of the CPV350C GPS Chart Plotter with VHF FM Marine
Transceiver!
Whether this is your first GPS chartplotter, or if you have other STANDARD HORIZON
equipment, the STANDARD HORIZON organization is committed to ensuring your enjoyment of this GPS chartplotter. STANDARD HORIZON technical support personnel stand
behind every product we sell, and our Product Support team invites you to contact us should
you require technical advice or assistance, at 800/767-2450.
CAUTION
The GPS chartplotter is designed for maritime use. Please give attention to avoid
water intrusion into the C-MAP NT+/MAX C-CARD cartridge holder.
Extensive exposure to heat may result in damage to the GPS chartplotter.
The GPS chartplotter contains dangerous high voltage circuits which only experienced technicians can handle.
STANDARD HORIZON will not be liable for errors contained herein, or for
incidental or consequential damages in connection with the performance or use
of this material.
CLEANING PROCEDURE FOR THE CHARTPLOTTER SCREEN
Cleaning of the chartplotter screen is a very important and must be done carefully.
Since the surface is covered by a antireflective coating, the procedure for cleaning
all the surfaces can be performed using the following procedure: You need a soft
tissue or towel and a cleaning spray (Windex) containing Isopropanol (a normal
spray cleaner sold for a PC screen, for example PolaClear by Polaroid). Fold the
tissue or lens tissue into a triangular shape, moisten the tip and use the index finger
behind a corner to move the tissue across the surface, in overlapping side to side
strokes. If the tissue is too wet, a noticeable wet film will be left in its path and you
will need to repeat the process. If too dry, the tissue won’t glide easily, and may
damage the surface.

2.3.1
VHF Antenna
ABOUT VHF RADIO
The radio frequencies used in the VHF marine band lie between 156 and 158 MHz with some
shore stations available between 161 and 163 MHz. The marine VHF band provides
communications over distances that are essentially “line of sight” (VHF signals do not travel
well through objects such as buildings, hills or trees). Actual transmission range depends
much more on antenna type, gain and height than on the power output of the transmitter.
On a fixed mount 25W radio transmission expected distances could be greater than 15
miles.
2.3.2
Selecting a Marine VHF Antenna
Marine antennas are made to radiate signals equally in all horizontal directions, but not
straight up. The objective of a marine antenna is to enhance the signal toward the horizon.
The degree to which this is accomplished is called the antenna’s gain. It is measured in
decibels (dB) and is one of the major factors in choosing an antenna. In terms of effective
radiated power (ERP), antennas are rated on the basis of how much gain they have over
a theoretical antenna with zero gain. A 3-foot, 3dB gain antenna represents twice as much
gain over the imaginary antenna. Typically a 3-foot 3dB gain stainless steel whip is used on
a sailboat mast. The longer 8-foot 6dB fiberglass whip is primarily used on powerboats that
require the additional gain.
CPV350
Page 15
2.3.3
Coaxial Cable
VHF antennas are connected to the transceiver by means of a coaxial cable - a shielded
transmission line. Coaxial cable is specified by its diameter and construction. For runs less
than 20 feet, RG-58/U, about 1/4 inch in diameter is a good choice. For runs over 20 feet
but less than 50 feet, the larger RG-8X should be used for cable runs over 50 feet RG213
should be used. For installation of the connector onto the coaxial cable refer to the figure
below. Figure 2.4.0 Installing the VHF antenna To get your coax cable through a fitting and
into your boat's interior, you may have to cut off the end plug and reattach it later. You can
do this if you follow the directions that come with the connector. Be sure to make good
soldered connections.

2.4 GPS ANTENNA
2.4.0
Mounting the GPS WAAS Smart Antenna
The CPV350 is supplied with a 12 Channel GPS WAAS Smart antenna. This antenna is
designed to be mounted on a base, installed on an extension or even flush mounted.
Choose a location for the antenna that has a clear view of the sky and is not located within
3 FT of Radar or other transmitting antenna. Ensure there are no major obstructions or
fixtures in the immediate proximity to the antenna. The antenna relies on direct “line of sight”
satellite reception. If you are unsure of the chosen location, temporarily mount the antenna
in the desired location to verify correct operation. If mounted close to Radar, and after the
GPS chartplotter has a fix, turn on the Caps on RADAR to ensure the GPS chartplotter holds
the fix (use the GPS Status Page).
2.4.1
Mounting on a Pole
The thread used on the antenna is an industry standard (1 inch 14TPI) used on a wide range
of mounting brackets. Due to the manufacturing process of these mounting brackets you
may see some slop when tightening down the antenna to the bracket. This is no concern
however as the antenna must be tightened until the antenna stops rotating.
NOTE
The antenna cable can be cut and spliced to ease installation. Care must be taken when
reconnecting the antenna cable to protect from water and corrosion.
2.4.2
Flush Mounting
NOTE
Before drilling holes, it is recommended the antenna be positioned where the location is planned
to be drilled, cable connected to the CPV350 and the CPV350 turned on to ensure a GPS fix is
received.

Remove the threaded base from the antenna dome.
To ease installation a flush mounting template for the antenna has been included.
Apply the mounting template sticker to the area that was verified for GPS reception.
Then, drill out the 0.63” (16 mm) and 0.16” (4 mm) holes, and remove the template.
Insert the cable into the 0.63” (16 mm) hole and route to the CPV350.
Apply a small amount or RTV to the under side of the antenna.
Place the antenna and then screw it into place using the screws. In some cases the
screw may not be long enough, if this happens simply apply more RTV to the underside
of the antenna to glue it into place.

The Track function tracks your vessels location as it moves through the water. The Track
function can be setup to lay down a Track for a predetermined time or distance interval. If
you have a fast moving boat you may want to setup the GPS chartplotter to record a Track
point every 0.5 NM or if you have a sail boat you may want to setup to lay down a Track point
once ever 1 minute.
NOTE
Pls note the Track point memory is 3000 points. This means for a long journey you may have to adjust
the time or distance to be able to track your journey. It should be noted when the 3000 Track points
are used up the first Track point layed down will be deleted when a new point is placed on the chart.

VHF DIGITAL SELECTIVE CALLING *
Digital Selective Calling is a semi-automated method of establishing a VHF radio call. DSC
had also been designated as part of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System
(GMDSS). It is planned that DSC will eventually replace aural watches on distress
frequencies and will be used to announce routine and urgent maritime safety information
broadcasts.
This new system allow mariners to instantly send a distress call with GPS position (when
connected to the transceiver) to the US Coast Guard and other vessels within range of the
transmission. DSC will also allow mariners to initiate POSITION Request, POSITION Send
calls to or from another vessel equipped with a DSC transceiver.
The CPV350 is capable of VHF Marine Radios with Digital Selective Calling are able to be
interfaced with the GPS chartplotter which feeds GPS data to the VHF and listens for DSC
calls from the VHF. By connecting a few wires between the STANDARD HORIZON VHF and
the GPS chartplotter it will receive:
1. a vessel that has transmitted a DSC Distress call
2. a vessel that has transmitted a DSC Position Send Call
3. The position of a vessel that transmitted a DSC Position Request Call
13.9.0 Position Request
The CPV350 can transmit a DSC position request call to other equipped vessels with DSC.
The position of the polled vessel is show on the chart pages after the call was received. This
is a great feature for anyone wanting to know the position of another vessel for example you
buddy that is catching fish, or finding the location of a person you are cruising with.

The Grounding Alarm function only operates with the new NT+/MAX C-CARDs. It also affects the
speed of the redraw of the screen. If this function is not used it may be disabled.
When any of the objects checked are found for the first time, the GPS chartplotter shows a pop up
window to alert the user of the possible danger. The name of each new dangerous object found is
reported in the warning window. In the Grounding Alarm Report page the relative item has a tick
marker next to it, to identify the dangerous object currently detected. If in the next search cycle the
same objects are found again, the alarm window will not be shown. Instead, if in the next searches
the objects found before are no longer detected, their relevant item in the Grounding Alarm Report
page is cleared (note that in this case, if the same object type is found again later, the Alarm will
be shown). The GPS chartplotter shows an icon on the charts that identifies when a Grounding
Alarm is detected.

15. AIS
AIS is an Automatic Identification System. It has been introduced to improve the safety of
navigation by assisting in the efficient operation of ship-to ship, ship reporting and VTS
applications. The system should enable operators to obtain information from the ship
automatically, requiring a minimum of involvement of ship’s personnel, and should have a
high level of availability. AIS transponders installed on IMO vessels use VHF frequencies
to:
♦
Transmit details of their own vessel
♦
Receive details from other vessels or navigation aids within VHF range.
Information being transmitted from vessels over 300 tons that, due to recent worldwide
legislation, are required to fit Class “A” AIS transponders.
Connecting to the GPS chartplotter an AIS receiver (please contact your local dealer),
vessels with AIS transponder within VHF range are displayed on screen giving the skipper
or navigator a visual interpretation of the data of nearby vessels. This improves safety, and
specifically for collision avoidance reasons.

AIS SYSTEM DEFINITIONS
Target: It is a vessel equipped with AIS. Information about the targets is being
received by AIS Receiver and displayed on the screen.
CPA : Closest Point of Approach is the closest distance that will be achieved
between your vessel and the tracked target, based on your vessel’s speed and
direction and the target’s speed and direction.
CPA Limit: This is the distance from your vessel that a target may reach before
a target is deemed a threat.
CPA Alarm: Occurs if CPA is less or equal to CPA Limit. This test is done for
active targets only.
TCPA: Time to closest Point of Approach is the time remaining until the CPA
will occur.
TCPA Limit: This is the time remaining before the CPA is reached.
TCPA Alarm: Occurs if TCPA is less or equal to TCPA Limit. This test is done
for active targets only and if CPA value is less or equal to CPA Limit.
Radio Call Sign: International call sign assigned to vessel, often used on voice
radio.
Name: Name of ship, 20 characters.
MMSI: Maritime Mobile Service Identity.
MMSI number: A unique 9 digit number that is assigned to a DSC radio station. It primarily registers the boat information in the U.S. Coast Guard’s national distress database for use in emergency situations.
Active Target: Target located within the Activation Range. Active target is represented by oriented triangle with COG and Heading vectors. Rate of turn may
also be displayed.
Page 74
CPV350
Dangerous Target: Target detected by CPA or TCPA Alarm. Dangerous target
is Active Target by definition. For better visibility Dangerous Target symbol is
flashing.
Sleeping Target: Target located outside the Activation Range. Sleeping target
is represented by a small oriented triangle.
Lost Target: When the AIS info is not received from that vessel for 3.5 minutes. The presentation will be a flashing black triangle with a cross through.
Activation Range: Range around your boat where targets become active. AIS
target become active within this range. Activation Range should be greater
than CPA Limit by definition.

Then use the following procedure:
1. Press the microphone push-to-talk switch and say “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday.
This is
,
,
” (your vessel’s name).
2. Then repeat once: “Mayday,
” (your vessel’s name).
3. Now report your position in latitude/longitude, or by giving a true or magnetic bearing
Page 84
CPV350
(state which) to a well-known landmark such as a navigation aid or geographic feature
such as an island or harbor entry.
4. Explain the nature of your distress (sinking, collision, aground, fire, heart attack, lifethreatening injury, etc.).
5. State the kind of assistance your desire (pumps, medical aid, etc.).
6. Report the number of persons aboard and condition of any injured.
7. Estimate the present seaworthiness and condition of your vessel.
8. Give your vessel’s description: length, design (power or sail), color and other distinguishing
marks. The total transmission should not exceed 1 minute.
9. End the message by saying “OVER.” Release the microphone button and listen.
10. If there is no answer, repeat the above procedure. If there is still no response, try another
channel.
18.7
CALLING ANOTHER VESSEL (CHANNEL 16 OR 9)
Channel 16 may be used for initial contact (hailing) with another vessel.
However, its most important use is for emergency and distress messages. This channel
must be monitored at all times except when actually using another channel.
It is monitored by the U.S. and Canadian Coast Guards and by other vessels. Use of channel
16 for hailing must be limited to initial contact only. Calling should not exceed 30 seconds,
but may be repeated 3 times at 2-minute intervals. In areas of heavy radio traffic, congestion
on channel 16 resulting from its use as a hailing channel can be reduced significantly in U.S.
waters by using channel 9 as the initial contact (hailing) channel for non-emergency
communications. Here, also, calling time should not exceed 30 seconds but may be
repeated 3 times at 2-minute intervals.
Prior to making contact with another vessel, refer to the channel charts in this manual, and
select an appropriate channel for communications after initial contact. For example,
Channels 68 and 69 are some of the channels available to non-commercial (recreational)
boaters. Monitor your desired channel in advance to make sure you will not be interrupting
other traffic, and then go back to either channel 16 or 9 for your initial contact.
When the hailing channel (16 or 9) is clear, state the name of the other vessel you wish to
call and then “This is” followed by the name of your vessel and your Station License (Call
Sign). When the other vessel returns your call, immediately request another channel by
saying “Go to,” the number of the other channel, and “Over.” Then switch to the new channel.
When the new channel is not busy, call the other vessel.
After a transmission, say “Over,” and release the microphone’s push-to-talk (PTT) switch.
When all communication with the other vessel is completed, end the last transmission by
stating your Call Sign and the word “Out.” Note that it is not necessary to state your Call Sign
with each transmission, only at the beginning and end of the contact.
Remember to return to Channel 16 when not using another channel. Some radios
automatically monitor Channel 16 even when set to other channels or when scanning.
18.8
MAKING TELEPHONE CALLS
To make a radiotelephone call, use a channel designated for this purpose. The fastest way
to learn which channels are used for radiotelephone traffic is to ask at a local marina.
Channels available for such traffic are designated Public Correspondence channels on the
channel charts in this manual. Some examples for USA use are Channels 24, 25, 26, 27,
CPV350
Page 85
28, 84, 85, 86, and 87. Call the marine operator and identify yourself by your vessel’s name,
The marine operator will then ask you how you will pay for the call (telephone credit card,
collect, etc.) and then link your radio transmission to the telephone lines.
The marine telephone company managing the VHF channel you are using may charge a
link-up fee in addition to the cost of the call.
18.9
OPERATING ON CHANNELS 13 AND 67
Channel 13 is used at docks and bridges and by vessels maneuvering in port. Messages
on this channel must concern navigation only, such as meeting and passing in restricted
waters.
Channel 67 is used for navigational traffic between vessels.
By regulation, power is normally limited to 1 Watt on these channels. Your radio is
programmed to automatically reduce power to this limit on these channels. However, in
certain situations it may be necessary to temporarily use a higher power. See page 89
([H/L] key) for means to temporarily override the low-power limit on these two channels.
18.10 DUAL WATCH (TO PRIORITY CHANNEL)

GENERAL
WARNING
This radio is designed to generate a digital maritime distress and safety call to
facilitate search and rescue. To be effective as a safety device, this equipment must
be used only within communication range of a shore-based VHF marine channel 70
distress and safety watch system. The range of signal may vary but under normal
conditions should be approximately 20 nautical miles.
NOTE
A DSC Warning sticker is included with the CPV350. To comply with FCC
regulations this sticker must be mounted in a location that can be easily viewed from
the location of the CPV350. Make sure
WARNING
STICKER
the chosen location is clean and dry
before applying the sticker.
Digital Selective Calling is a semiautomated method of establishing a radio
call, it has been designated by the
International Maritime Organization (IMO)
as an international standard for
establishing VHF, MF, and HF radio calls.
It has also been designated as part of the
Global Maritime Distress and Safety
System (GMDSS). It is planned that DSC
will eventually replace aural watches on distress frequencies and will be used to
announce routine and urgent maritime safety information broadcasts.
This system allows mariners to instantly send a distress call with GPS position
(when connected to the transceiver) to the Coast Guard and other vessels within
range of the transmission. DSC will also allow mariners to initiate or receive
Distress, Urgency, Safety, Routine, POSITION REQUEST, POSITION SEND, and
Group calls to or from another vessel equipped with a DSC transceiver.

TROUBLESHOOTING
The GPS chartplotter does not turn On. The voltage or the polarity may not be correct.
Make sure that the correct voltage (10-35 volt dc) is present. Check also that the polarity
is correct.
The GPS chartplotter does not get a valid fix. The GPS WAAS Smart Antenna may not
be in a open sky position or the antenna cable may not be properly connected. Make sure
that no metal obstacle is placed around the antenna acting as a shield for the antenna and
disconnect and connect again the antenna cable to the GPS chartplotter. If, after 15
minutes, the GPS chartplotter does not get the fix, turn it Off and On again.
The GPS chartplotter does not turn Off. The GPS chartplotter may be in an unpredictable
status. If, after pressing [PWR] (for at least 3 seconds) the GPS chartplotter does not turn
Off, turn Off the voltage.
The GPS chartplotter screen becomes very dark after a long exposure to direct
sunlight. The internal temperature is very high. Control the contrast. Protect the GPS
chartplotter from direct sunlight.
The GPS chartplotter does not respond to any command. The GPS chartplotter may be
in an unpredictable status. Try to turn Off, and then turn On. If the problem persists, erase
the memory) or remove power from the battery.
External devices are not receiving data from the GPS chartplotter. The connections or
the Software settings may not be right. Check the connections or the settings.
The location of my fix is not shown correctly on the Chart page. This is usually caused
when C-MAP Geo-References a nautical chart. Contact C-MAP with the Latitude &
Longitude of your vessels position, the position where you think your vessels should be and
with details of the cartography areas, which can be seen by selecting the Chart page, press
[MENU], move the ShuttlePoint knob to highlight FIND SERVICES and press [ENT], move
the ShuttlePoint knob to highlight INFORMATION and press [ENT], move the ShuttlePoint
knob to Data Source and press [ENT]. Write down the “Compilation scale”, “Notice to
mariners” and “Horizontal datum”. Next contact C-MAP USA at 508/477-8010 and advise
the problem.

24. CHANNEL ASSIGNMENTS
Tables on the following columns list the VHF Marine Channel assignments for U.S.A. and
International use. Below are listed some data about the charts.
1. VTS. Where indicated, these channels are part of the U.S. Coast Guard’s Vessel Traffic
System.
2. Alpha channel numbers, that is, channel numbers followed by the letter A (such as
Channel 07A) are simplex channels on the U.S.A. or Canadian channel assignments
whose counterparts in the International assignments are duplex channels. International
channels do not use “alpha” numbers. If you call the Coast Guard on Channel 16, they
will sometimes ask you to “go to channel 22 Alpha.” This is a channel assigned to U.S.A,
and Canadian Coast Guards for handling distress and other calls. If your radio is set for
International operation you will go to Channel 22 instead of 22A, and will not be able to
communicate with the Coast Guard. To use Channel 22A, your radio must be set for
USA or Canada operation, usually by a U/I/C (USA/International/Canada) control or
combination of controls. Channel 22 (without an “A”) is an International duplex channel
for port operations. Some radios indicate an “A” adjacent to the alpha channels on the
display; on others “alpha” is not indicated but the proper channel is selected based on
the U/I/C setting.
3. Bridge-to-Bridge channels (for example, Channel 13) are for use by bridge operators
on intercoastal waterways and rivers. It is also used by marine vessels in the vicinity of
these bridges for navigation and for communicating with the bridge operators. Note that
a limit of 1 Watt is specified for these channels. See page 28 for additional information.
4. The S/D column on the chart indicates either S (simplex) or D (duplex). Simplex means
transmitting and receiving on the same frequency. Only one party at a time can talk,
unlike a telephone. Be sure to say “over” and release your microphone push-to-talk
switch at the end of each transmission. Duplex operation involves the use of one
frequency for transmitting and a separate frequency for receiving. On channels
specified as duplex on the charts, correct mode of operation is established automatically
by your radio when you select a channel; you cannot change the mode. And you still
must release the push-to-talk switch after each transmission in order to listen to the
radio.
5. Channels normally used by recreational boaters are those that include the term “noncommercial” in the Channel Use column of the chart. Some of these are shared with
other users and some are used only in certain geographic regions.
6. Marine vessels equipped with VHF radios are required to monitor Channel 16.

25. TECHNICAL TESTS
25.0
SYSTEM TEST
If you have connected your GPS chartplotter according to the instructions, and chosen the
proper menu selection for your device, and are still having problems with your GPS
chartplotter, the extended auto-test should help determine the problem. Make sure the GPS
chartplotter is turned Off. While pressing and holding any other key, turn the GPS
chartplotter On. SYSTEM TEST menu will appear on the display:
Figure 20.0 - System Test
Use the ShuttlePoint knob to select the desired test. Choose the test, press [ENT]. To exit
from any submenu press [CLR]. To exit from the System Test turn Off the GPS chartplotter.
25.0.0 RAM Menu (reset)
This test verifies the integrity of the memories and if desired during this test all the internal
memory can be erased and the default setting restored.
RAM Test
To verify the integrity of the RAM. If on the screen the message ERROR appears, the RAM
is physically damaged. Contact your Dealer or STANDARD HORIZON.
RAM Clear
To clear internal memory. If the GPS chartplotter exhibits unusual operations, or appears
to be malfunctioning, it may be possible to correct the problem by clearing RAM.
This operation will erase all Marks, Routes, stored Track plots and Destinations. It will also
return all selections (Input Data Format, Autopilot selection, etc.) to original default values.
To confirm clear RAM press [ENT] again (but if at this time you do not wish to clear RAM
press [CLR]).
25.0.1 DIM Menu

Background ROM
To test the WorldWideBackground. If there is not a malfunction, the code of the Background
and the message "OK" are shown, but if the Background is defective the message "Faulty"
is shown.
C-CARD Test
To test the C-CARD. There are the possible situations:
1. if there is a C-CARD inserted in the slot and there is not a malfunction, the name of the
C-CARD zone and the message "OK" are shown.
2. if there is a C-CARD inserted in the slot, but it is a defective C-CARD, the name of the
C-CARD zone and the message "Faulty" are shown.
3. if there is not any C-CARD inserted in the slot, the message "not present" is shown.
4. if there is a User C-CARD inserted in the slot, the message USER C-CARD is shown.
C-CARD Connector

25.0.3 Serial Ports
If you are having problems receiving data from the position-finding instrument, this test
should help determine the problem.
Change Parameters
To change the parameters of the serial interface. This menu allows to select the Port (Signal
Source), the Baud Rate, the Data Bits (Word Length), the Parity, the Stop Bits.
Input Data Display
To allow the GPS chartplotter to act as a computer terminal and display the incoming data
exactly as it is received. If the data displayed on the screen is unrecognizable, you may have
selected the wrong input parameters for your particular receiver, for example, Baud Rate
9600 instead of Baud Rate 4800. Check your receiver manual to be sure that you have
selected the proper parameter. If the screen is blank, you may have a broken connection,
and no data is being received or you may have connected the device to the other input port.
Use [ZOOM] to stop (or continue after pause) data displaying, [ENT] to show data in hex
or ASCII mode (normal or small) and [CLR] to exit.
25.0.4 Modem test

28. APPENDIX: TERMS
ALT (Altitude) – Shows the Altitude of the vessel.
APP Wind DIR SPD (Apparent Wind Direction) – Shows the Apparent Wind Direction when
a external wind instrument with NMEA is connected.
APP Wind SPD (Apparent Wind Speed) – Shows the Apparent Wind Speed when a
external wind instrument with NMEA is connected.
BRG (Bearing) – The direction from your current position to a Destination point.
COG (Course Over Ground) – The course your vessel is heading.
DATE – Shows the current date received by the GPS.
DEPTH – Shows the water depth when the optional FF520 50/200kHz BLACK BOX FISH
FINDER or Digital Depth Sounder is connected.
DRAUGHT – Tide height value referred to Horizontal cursor.
DSC (Digital Selective Calling) – Digital Selective Calling is a semi-automated method of
establishing a VHF Radio call. DSC had also been designated as part of the Global Maritime
Distress and Safety System (GMDSS). It is planned that DSC will eventually replace aural
watches on distress frequencies and will be used to announce routine and urgent maritime
safety information broadcasts.
DST (Distance) – The distance from your current position to a Destination point.
ETA – Estimated Time of Arrival
GPS Constellation – The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based radionavigation system consisting of a constellation of satellites and a network of ground stations
used for monitoring and control. A minimum of 24 GPS satellites orbit the Earth at an altitude
of approximately 11,000 miles providing users with accurate information on position,
velocity and time anywhere in the world and in all weather conditions.
GPS2D – The GPS is receiving at least 2 valid satellites.
GPS3D – The GPS is receiving at least 3 Satellites.
HDG (Heading) – Shows heading from a External Flux Gate Compass when connected.
HDOP/VDOP – Horizontal/Vertical Dilution of Precision. It is a parameter indicating the
precision of the positioning system (GPS). The smaller the HDOP/VDOP value, the more
accurately the position fix is provided.
HEIGHT – The current tide height referred to the vertical cursor.
HIGH WATER – The maximum level of the tide height in 24 hours.
LOW WATER – The minimum level of the tide height in 24 hours.
Position Request – Marine DSC VHF Function of transmitting a GPS position to another
Marine DSC VHF. When GPS chartplotter is connected to STANDARD HORIZON GPS the
position of another vessel is shown on the Chart page.
Page 142
CPV350
SPEED – Shows the Speed Thru the Water when a Digital Speed Log is connected.
SOG (Speed Over Ground) – The speed you vessel is traveling at.
STEER – Heading to steer to destination Waypoint.
TIME – Shows the current time received by the GPS.
TRIP LOG – Shows the distance the vessel has traveled since the trip log was reset.
TRU Wind DIR SPD (Apparent Wind Direction) – Shows the True Wind Direction when a
external wind instrument with NMEA is connected.
TRU Wind SPD (Apparent Wind Speed) – Shows the True Wind Speed when a external
wind instrument with NMEA is connected.
TTG (Time To Go) – Shows time to go to reach a Destination point.
UNITS
Nm Nautical Mile (1 NM = 1.15 Sm or 1.85Km)
Sm Statue Mile (1Sm = 0.87Nm or 1.61Km)
Km Kilometer (1 Kilometer = 0062 Sm or 0.54Nm)
FT Feet. (1 Foot = 0.167 Fathoms or 0.305 Meters)
FA Fathom (1 Fathom = 6 Feet or 1.83 Meters)
Mt Meter (1 Meter = 3.28 Feet or 0.55 Fathoms)
Kts Knot (1 Knot = 1.15 MPH or 1.85 KPH)
MPH Miles Per Hour (1 MPH = 0.87 Knots or 1.61 KPH)
Kmh Kilometer Per Hour (1 KPH = 0.54 Knots or 0.62 MPH)
VMG – It is the destination closing Velocity. The VMG is calculated using the current speed
of the vessel (SOG) and the difference between the current vessel course and the bearing
to the Destination.
WAAS 2D/3D – The GPS is receiving a 2D or 3D position and the correction from the WAAS
Satellite. WAAS consists of approximately 25 ground reference stations positioned across
the United States that monitor GPS satellite data. Two master stations, located on either
coast, collect data from the reference stations and create a GPS correction message. This
correction accounts for GPS satellite orbit and clock drift plus signal delays caused by the
atmosphere and ionosphere. The corrected differential message is then broadcast through
one of two geostationary satellites, or satellites with a fixed position over the equator. The
information is compatible with the basic GPS signal structure, which means any WAASenabled GPS receiver can read the signal.
WATER TEMP – Shows the sea water temperature when the FF520 50/200kHz BLACK
BOX FISH FINDER or a Digital Speed Log/Temp instrument with NMEA is connected.
XTE (Cross Track Error) – The distance your vessel is off course (left or right) to a
Destination point.
