The GPS receiver tracks up to 13 satellites (GPS: 12, WAAS: 1) simultaneously,
and an 8-state Kalman filter ensures optimum accuracy in determination of
vessel position, course and speed.
• C-MAP NT+ and MAX chart card (SD) is available.
• Comprehensive navigation data displays.
• Bright 7-inch color TFT LCD with brilliance control.
• Automatic coastline chart loading.
• Position display in latitude and longitude, Loran C TD.
• Alarms: Arrival, Anchor Watch, Cross-track Error, Speed, Grounding, Depth,
Temperature.
• Man overboard feature records latitude and longitude coordinates at the time
of man overboard.
• “Highway” display provides graphic presentation of ship’s track and is useful
for monitoring cross track error.

Loading an SDTM Chart Card
Your unit reads C-MAP NT+ /NT MAX TM charts, stored on SDTM cards. Insert the
appropriate chart card for your area before turning the power on to show chart
data automatically.
Note 1: Static electricity can be passed through your fingers to a card and
destroy the contents of the card. To prevent this, always touch a metallic
object, such as a steel desk, before handling an SDTM card.
Note 2: Do not insert or remove a card while the power is on. This may cause
the equipment to freeze.

C-MAP electronic charts (ECs) are derived from
geographical data -including official government
charts - which we believe to be accurate.They are
neither verified nor approved by Hydrographic
Authorities. C-MAP ECs are designed only to ease
and speed navigation calculations and so must not
be relied upon as aprimary source of navigation
information, but rather a backup to the use of
official government charts and prudent navigation
habits.
There is no direct relationship between the color
of water areas and their depth. The navigator shall
always query the area for depth information and use
the official paper charts.
In about 30 seconds the
last-used display appears.
You can go to the last-used
display faster by pressing any
key when this screen appears.
Start-up sequence
Note 1: 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.
Note 2: If the message “SYSTEM HAS FAILED START UP TEST. PLEASE
CONTACT A LOCAL FURUNO REPRESENTATIVE FOR REPAIR.
PRESS ANY KEY TO CONTINUE.” appears, contact your dealer for
advice.
Note 3: At the very first time you turn on your unit, the simulation mode window
appears. Choose YES or NO as appropriate and push the [ENTER]
knob.
The equipment takes 90 seconds to find its position when turned on for the very
first time. Thereafter it takes about 12 seconds to find position each time the
power is turned on. The message “NO FIX”, which means the equipment is now
finding its position, appears at the bottom of the plotter display immediately after
turning the power on. When the GPS receiver finds its position, “NO FIX”
changes to “2D” or “3D” to show that position data is now accurate.
Turning the power off
Press and hold the [POWER/BRILL] key until the screen goes blank (about four
seconds).

the monitor moves according to direction and distance off course. An arrow
appears at the right or left side of the XTE monitor and it shows the direction to

and green when you should steer right. In the example above you would steer
left to return to course. To maintain course, steer the vessel so the own ship

Track Plotting Method and Interval
In drawing the own ship track, first the ship’s position fed from the internal GPS
navigator is stored into the unit’s memory at an interval of time or distance. A
shorter interval provides for 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 to a destination,
in the shortest distance possible.
This unit has 2,000 waypoints into which you can enter position information. You
may enter a waypoint four ways: at own ship position, by cursor, at MOB position
(see chapter 1) and through the waypoint list (manual input of latitude and
longitude).
4.1
Entering Waypoints
4.1.1
Entering a waypoint at own ship position or cursor position
Turn the cursor off to enter a waypoint at own ship position, or turn it on to enter
a waypoint at cursor position.
A newly entered waypoint is saved to the waypoint list, under the youngest
empty waypoint number.
1. Press the [MOB/ WPT] key momentarily to store your position as a waypoint.
When the cursor is displayed, the waypoint is entered at the cursor position.
The new waypoint window appears and it shows waypoint name, position of
waypoint, waypoint mark shape and comment for newly entered waypoint.

GPS-generated position may be off by

factors. In this case, you can
automatically correct GPS position by
selecting On.
Corrects the GPS antenna position.
After placing the cursor at the own
ship’s true position, select this item.
Corrects the GPS antenna position
manually. Enter the longitude and
latitude numeric data of own ship’s true
position.
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. You can choose the
setting from among Off, Low, Medium
and High. 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. Off is normal setting;
increase the setting if the GPS fix
changes.
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 filter setting. Like with
latitude and longitude filter, the higher
the speed filter the more smoothed the
raw data. If the setting is too high,
however, the response to speed and
course change slows. For no
smoothing, choose Off. (Off, Low,
Medium, High)

Settings
Choose how to calculate bearing, Mag or True. True
bearing is a bearing measured using true North as the
reference direction, and it is calculated by the formula
True Bearing = Magnetic Bearing -Magnetic Variation.
Magnetic bearings are measured with magnetic north as
the reference direction. Select Mag when using a
magnetic compass, True when using a gyrocompass.
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 variations.
However, you may wish to enter variation manually to
refine accuracy by entering the magnetic variation
referring to a nautical chart.
Offsets latitude/longitude position to further refine
position accuracy. This table is used to match magnetic
value on the plotter with the readout of compass.

What is WAAS?
WAAS, available in North America, is a provider in the worldwide SBAS (Satellite Based
Augmentation System) navigation system. An SBAS provider furnishes GPS signal corrections
to SBAS users. 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.

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 in the developmental phase.
Note: This manual uses “WAAS” when referring to any SBAS provider.
