The pilot display is similar to the plotter display, with the following differences.
1) The pilot display orientation is always auto course-up. The course is at the
top of screen at the moment the pilot display is selected. A filled triangle
marks own ship’s position. When own ship is off its intended course by 22.5°
or more, it is automatically brought back to perpendicular.
2) The north mark ( ) appears at the bottom of the screen and points to north.
3) The grid lines denote the distance from own ship, not longitude/latitude.
Note: When north is not at the top of screen, the distance error may be larger
than on the plotter display since the Mercator projection is used.

the red triangle shows own ship’s course.
Note: The course means the direction of own ship’s movement, it is not the
direction of heading. The cursor includes the affect of current and wind.
Depth and water temperature graphs
The depth and water temperature graphs, which require appropriate sensors,
show the latest 10 minutes of depth and water temperature data. The range of
the depth graph is 50 feet and it is automatically adjusted with depth.
XTE (cross-track error) monitor
The black boat-shaped (own ship mark) mark shows ship’s cross-track from the
intended course and direction, and amount to steer to return to course. It is
shown in black when the amount of cross-track error is within the XTE monitor
range and yellow when it is over. An arrow appears at the right or left side of the
XTE monitor and it shows the direction to steer to return to the intended course.
The arrow is shown in red when you should steer left, and green when you
should steer right. In the example on the previous page you would steer right to
return to course set. To maintain course, steer the vessel so the own ship marker
stays at the center of the XTE monitor.

higher accuracy. (For your reference, the positioning accuracy is
approx. 10 m when the value is less than “4”.)
SS: SS (Signal Strength) displays a numeric representation of electrical field
strength of the received signal on the selected frequency. The higher the
number the stronger the received signal, and a figure above 60 is normal.
SN: SN (Signal-to-Noise) ratio displays the ratio between the desired signal
and unwanted noise on the selected frequency. The higher the SN ratio the
better the quality of the signal, and a figure above 21 is normal.

Mini Chart Cards
This equipment uses both FURUNO and NAVIONICS chart cards or C-MAP NT
mini chart cards depending on its specifications. When you insert a suitable
chart card in the right side slot and turn on the power, a chart appears. If a
wrong card is inserted or a wrong chart scale is selected, landmasses will be
hollow. Insert the proper card and select a suitable chart scale. Chart icons
appear at the bottom of the plotter (or pilot) display to help you select a suitable
chart size. The table below shows the chart icons and their meanings.

Track Plotting Method, Interval
In drawing the track, the ship’s position is stored into the unit’s memory at an
interval of time or distance. A shorter interval provides better reconstruction of
the track, but the storage time of the track is reduced. When the track memory
becomes full, the oldest track is erased to make room for the latest.

WAYPOINT
In navigation terminology, a waypoint is a particular location on a voyage
whether it be a starting, intermediate or destination point. A waypoint is the
simplest piece of information your equipment requires to get you a destination, in
the shortest distance possible.
5.1
Entering Waypoints
This unit has 3500 waypoints into which you can enter position information.
There are seven methods by which you can enter a waypoint: at own ship’s
position, by cursor, by latitude and longitude, by range and bearing, by Loran-C,
by Loran-A LOP and by Decca LOP.
5.1.1
Entering waypoints at own ship’s position
• Press the [SAVE/MOB] key momentarily.
The message “WAYPOINT XXXXXX IS SAVED! CONTINUE PRESSING FOR
MOB!” appears for three seconds to let you know that ship’s position is saved as
a waypoint. The default waypoint mark is a yellow solid circle. You can know
shape and color of the selected waypoint by the icon ( ) at the bottom of the
plotter (or pilot) display. This new waypoint will automatically be saved in the
waypoint list under the next consecutive waypoint number.
Note: If the waypoint icon does not appear at the bottom of the plotter (or pilot)
display, do the following.
a) Press the [MENU], [0], [1] in that order to show the DISPLAY SETUP menu.

ROUTE
Often a trip from one place to another involves several course changes,
requiring a series of route points (waypoints) which you navigate to, one after
another. The sequence of waypoints leading to the ultimate destination is called
a route.

Entering Routes
You can store up to 200 routes and a route may consist of 35 points. There are
two methods to enter a route:
• Using existing waypoints
• Track based route using own ship positions recorded at preset intervals

9. CUSTOMIZING YOUR UNIT
MAGNETIC VARIATION
The location of the magnetic north pole is different from the geographical north
pole. This causes a difference between the true and magnetic north location.
This difference is called magnetic variation, and varies with respect to the
observation point on earth. Your unit is preprogrammed with all the earth’s
magnetic variation. However, you may wish to enter variation manually to refine
accuracy.

(See page 7-10.)
RNG & BRG MODE
When you set a destination, the equipment displays the range, bearing and
course to that destination. Range and bearing are calculated by the Great Circle
or Rhumb Line method. Route total distance is also calculated. Cross-track error
is only calculated in the Great Circle method.
Rhumb line: This method calculates the range and bearing between two points
drawn on a nautical chart. Since the bearing is kept constant it is ideal for
short-range navigation.
Great circle: This course line is the shortest course between two points on the
surface of the earth, like stretching a piece of string between two points on earth.
Because frequent course changes are required it is most suitable for long-range
navigation.

GPS uses UTC time. If you would rather use local time, key in the time
difference between it and UTC time. Use the [CURSOR ON/OFF] key to switch
from “+” to “-” and vice versa. The setting range is -13:30 to +13.30.
LOCAL TIME (EXT NAV)
If the NMEA time data fed from external equipment is wrong and cannot be
corrected at the external equipment, enter an offset here to correct it. Use the
[CURSOR ON/OFF] key to switch from “+” to “-” and vice versa.
GEODETIC DATUM
Your unit is preprogrammed with most of the major chart systems of the world.
Although the WGS-84 system, the GPS standard, is now widely used other
categories of charts still exist. Select the chart system used, not the area where
your boat is sailing.
1. Rotate the [ENTER] knob to select GEODETIC DATUM.
2. Roll the trackball in left-right direction to select the chart system you are
using.
The geodetic datum system selected appears at the bottom of the PLOTTER (or

TOKYO: TOKYO-MN is selected.
LOCAL: Other chart system is selected.
POSITION SMOOTHING
When the DOP or receiving condition is unfavorable, the GPS fix may change,
even if the vessel is dead in water. This change can be reduced by smoothing
the raw GPS fixes. A setting between 000 to 999 is available. The higher the
setting, the more smoothed the raw data, however too high a setting slows
response time to change in latitude and longitude. This is especially noticeable
at high ship’s speeds. 000 is the normal setting; increase the setting if the GPS
fix changes.
9-18
9. CUSTOMIZING YOUR UNIT
SPEED SMOOTHING
During position fixing, ship’s velocity (speed) is directly measured by receiving
GPS satellite signals. The raw velocity data may change randomly depending on
receiving conditions and other factors. You can reduce this random variation by
increasing the smoothing. Like with latitude and longitude smoothing, the higher
the speed smoothing the more smoothed the raw data. If the setting is too high,
however, the response to speed and course change slows. For no smoothing,
enter all zeroes.
SPEED AVERAGING (INT)
Calculation of ETA and TTG is based on average ship’s speed over a given
period. If the period is too long or too short, calculation error will result. Change
the setting accordingly if calculation error occurs.
SPEED AVERAGING (EXT)
Speed averaging for the ship’s speed data received from external equipment in
NMEA format.
LATITUDE OFFSET, LONGITUDE OFFSET
GPS-generated position may be off by some seconds because of various factors.
In this case, you can apply an offset to GPS position to refine position accuracy.

1. Rotate the [ENTER] knob to select LATITUDE OFFSET or LONGITUDE
OFFSET.
2. Press the numeric keys to enter the error value.
3. To switch North and South (East and West), press the [CURSOR ON/OFF]
key.
4. Press the [ENTER] knob.

DISABLE SATELLITE
Every GPS satellite is broadcasting abnormal satellite number(s) in its Almanac,
which contains general orbital data about all GPS satellites, including those
which are malfunctioning. Using this information, the GPS receiver automatically
eliminates any malfunctioning satellite from the GPS satellite schedule. However,
the Almanac sometimes may not contain this information. If you hear about a
malfunctioning satellite from another source, you can disable it manually. Enter
satellite number (max. 3 satellites) in two digits.

DATA
This chapter provides information necessary for recording and playing back data,
and uploading and downloading data to (from) a PC.
10.1
Recording Data
Data can be recorded in the “working memory.” The working memory stores data
such as position, marks, lines, waypoints. When it is full, earliest data are erased
one by one to make room for new data. Thus it is good idea to save important
data to a memory card or the internal memory.
This unit’s memory configuration is as shown below.

Cold Start
Cold start is automatically executed at initial power application or when the GPS
memory is cleared. This is done to acquire the Almanac to receive a GPS
satellite. You can also do the cold start manually when the Almanac is too old to
acquire a satellite; for example, when the equipment has not been used for one
year or more. Manually cold starting the receiver erases the existing Almanac to
receive the current one.

The Almanac description is shown below.
Almanac
Every GPS satellite is broadcasting general orbital data (called Almanac) about
all other satellites. The GPS receiver decodes the Almanac to calculate when
and at what angle the GPS satellite is to appear. If there is no Almanac in the
receiver the estimated arrival time of the GPS satellite cannot be found and thus
GPS position fix cannot be calculated. The GPS receiver is shipped with no
Almanac in its memory. When the power is first turned on after installation the
receiver starts receiving the Almanac. This is called “cold start.” Each time the
GPS receiver receives orbital data the Almanac is replaced with the latest one.

WHAT IS WAAS?
WAAS, available in North America, is a provider in the woridwide SBAS (Satelite
Based Augmentation System) navigation system. CBAS provides GPS signal
corrections to SBAS users, for even better position accuracy, typically better
than three meters. Two more SBAS providers are also currently under
development, MSAS (Multi-Functional Satellite Augmentation System) for Japan
and EGNOS (Euro Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service) for Europe. All
providers will be compatible with one another, thus providing "seamless" position
fixes to SBAS users. The illustration below shows the coverage area. (Accuracy
may be affected when using a GEO satellite not within your current location.)

At the time of this software release, SBAS is still under development (Providers
are expected to have initial operations capability from the times shown above.)
During this developmental period, which may last for several years, there is no
guarantee of the accuracy, integrity, continuity, or availability of the SBAS signal.
Furuno will accept no responsibility for the use of the signal for other than the
above stated purpose. It is the user’s responsibility to exercise common
prudence and navigational judgment while using the SBAS signal. Users are
reminded that the SBAS has not been commissioned for use in safety of life
applications (SOLAS) and must be turned to the "OFF" position on any SOLAS
vessels.
