SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
Be sure to insert the memory card battery correctly.
Explosion may result if it is installed with polarity reversed.
NOTICE
No one navigational aid should be relied upon exclusively for the safety of vessel and
crew. The navigator has the responsibility to check all aids available to confirm his
position. Electronic aids are not a substitute for basic navigational principles and
common sense.
Digital charts cannot replace official nautical charts
Digital charts are intended as an navigational aid. Therefore, position should always be
checked against nautical charts, as well as other aids to navigation.
Handle chart/memory cards carefully
The chart and memory cards are weak against electrostatic discharge. Handle them
with care, observing the following guidelines.
- Keep cards away from heat sources.
- Replace cards in their protective cases after use.
Replace memory card battery within 10 minutes of removal.
Replace the memory card battery within 10 minutes of removal to prevent loss of
data.

OPERATIONAL OVERVIEW
1.1
General
The Video Plotter RP-250 is an optional circuit board (RP board) which is
accommodated in the display unit of the FR-2105 series radar. It permits use of
two memory cards, a memory card (RAM card) for storing own ship and other
ship tracks and marks, and the other is a chart card (ROM card) for digital
charts.
With connection of an AIS (Universal Automatic Identification System)
transponder to the RP board, the RP-250 provides navigation data about
targets which carry an AIS transponder.
30 navigation lines may be stored and each line may contain up to 30
waypoints. Five nav lines may be simultaneously shown on the display. 100
waypoints are available. The user may enter position data in waypoints 01-98.
(Waypoint 00 is for own ship position when destination is set; waypoint 99 is for
waypoint from external equipment.) Own ship and other ship tracks may be
stored at a selected interval.
Charts are superimposed on the radar picture without disturbing the radar
observation. The chart area is dependent on the radar range in use. The
RP-250 comes in two versions: FURUNO/NAVIONICS and FURUNO/C-MAP.
Note: The example screens shown in this manual may not match the screens
you see on your display. The screen you see depends on your system
configuration and equipment settings.

Track Plotting Interval
The memory stores ship's position in latitude and longitude at a sampling rate
set on the OWN SHIP, TARGET PLOT menu. The position data so stored is
used to display past own ship's track on the screen. The memory for own ship
track and other ship track is 20,000 points each. The plotting interval affects
track reconstruction. A shorter interval provides more accurate reconstruction of
track, however storage time of the track is reduced. A longer interval stores more
track, however the track is less accurate.
The memory for own ship track is 20,000 points. The table below shows the
relation between plotting interval and maximum recording time. When the
storage capacity is exceeded oldest data is erased to make room of the latest.

Smoothing
Even when the vessel is sailing in a straight line the track shown on the display
looks irregular. This is due to signal variation of the external navaid. You can
compensate for this irregularity with smoothing.
A smoothing factor between 1 and 9 is available. OFF provides no smoothing. In
most cases a smoothing setting between 1 and 5 is satisfactory.

Note: Waypoints are automatically switched when own ship is either 1/2 of
the arrival alarm range or 0.5 nm from next waypoint, whichever
figure is larger. For example, the arrival alarm range is 2 miles. Since

Longitude Error Table (on 96 nm range scale)
The longitude lines concentrate on the north pole and south pole, namely, 1 nm
is equivalent to 1 minute at 0 degree latitude, 2 minutes at 60 degrees latitude, 3
minutes at 70 degrees latitude and so on. For this reason, a longitude error
occurs on the radar display. For example, when own ship is at 60°N and 135°E,
even if the cursor indication is 62°N and 139°E, the real cursor position is
deviated to the left (west) side. The table below shows the longitude error,
represented from 0° to 90° at 96 nm from the radar center (own ship).

RECEIVE is displayed, ARPA FUSION is not
displayed.
CPA/TCPA of an AIS target is below preset value.
Lost target
Not receiving AIS data
This message appears when the water tracking
mode is set at the radar and the data necessary for
STW and CSE are not available. In this case the
vector on the AIS symbol does not appear and SOG
(speed over ground) and COG (course over ground)
are displayed on the basic display.
Displayed when a target enters the ARPA guard
ring.
CPA/TCPA cannot be calculated because the “WT”
alarm has been violated. Further the CPA/TCPA
value in basic data display is marked with an
asterisk to indicate that CPA/TCPA value is not
reliable.
Displayed when 1000 AIS targets have been
received. (The radar can only display 1000 AIS
targets closest in range to own ship.)
