after the unit gets a position fix or you press either ENTER
or QUIT. The page can be disabled and enabled on the Main
Menu—Pages tab (see page 63).
To turn on the GPSMAP 192C:
1. Press and hold the POWER key until the power tone
sounds, then release the POWER key. The Warning page
appears while the unit conducts a self-test.
2. When the self-test is complete, press ENTER to agree and
acknowledge the warning.
The GPS Information page appears as the receiver begins acquiring
satellites.
To turn off the GPSMAP 192C:
1. Press and hold the POWER key for about 2 seconds, until
the screen is blank.

The GPSMAP 192C now begins searching for the appropriate
satellites for your region and should acquire a fix within a few
minutes. When viewing the GPS tab on the Main Menu, a signal
strength bar for each satellite in view appears on the bottom of the
page, with the appropriate satellite number under each bar.
• No signal strength bars—the receiver is looking for the
satellites indicated.
• Hollow signal strength bars—the receiver has found the
indicated satellite(s) and is collecting data.
• Solid signal strength bars—the receiver has collected the
necessary data and the satellite(s) are ready for use.
When the receiver has collected information from at least three
satellites, the top of the screen displays either “Ready 2D or 3D”,
and the GPSMAP 192C is ready for use.

GPSMAP 192C Owner’s Manual
Selecting a Go To Graphically
A graphical Go To can be used to select one of three items from
the map display: an existing waypoint, an on-screen map item such
as roads, rivers, cities, and navaids, or a new map point. If you are
selecting a map item as the Go To destination, the GPSMAP 192C
automatically uses the name of the map item, but the point is not
stored in the waypoint list. See page 21 for creating waypoints
using map items. If you are selecting a new map point (non-map
item) as the Go To destination, the GPSMAP 192C automatically
creates a waypoint at the pointer location.
To activate an existing waypoint or map item as a Go
To from the map display:
1. Use the ROCKER to highlight the waypoint or map item
on-screen, and press NAV.
2. You see Go To <waypoint name>, then press ENTER.
Or
Highlight the waypoint or map item, press ENTER, highlight
Go To from options at the bottom of the window, and press
ENTER.
13
BASIC OPERATION > NAVIGATING TO A DESTINATION
To Go To a new map point (non-map item):
1. Use the ROCKER to move the map pointer to a location.
2. Press NAV.
3. With Go To MAP Point highlighted, press ENTER.
TracBack Navigation (Navigating a Track)
The TracBack function allows you to retrace your path using the
track log automatically stored in the receiver’s memory. This
feature eliminates the need to store waypoints along the way.
TracBack routes are created by reducing your track log into a route
of up to 254 turns and activating an inverted route along those
points. When activated, a TracBack route leads you back to the
oldest stored track log point, so it’s a good idea to clear the existing
track log before you start your current trip.
You must save a track before using the Follow Track option.
14
GPSMAP 192C Owner’s Manual
BASIC OPERATION > NAVIGATING TO A DESTINATION
To clear the track log and define a starting point for a

To activate a TracBack using the NAV key:
1. Press NAV, highlight the Follow Track option, and press
ENTER.
2. Highlight the track you want to follow, and press ENTER.
3. Choose Original, to navigate from the start to the end of

When a TracBack is active, the GPSMAP 192C takes the track log
currently stored in memory and divides it into segments called legs.
Up to 50 temporary turns (BEGIN, TURN 1, TURN 2, TURN 3,....,
TURN X, END) are created to mark the most significant features
of the track log in order to duplicate your exact path as closely as
possible. To get the most out of the TracBack feature, remember
the following tips:
• If the track log interval is set to the Time option, the route
can not follow your exact path. For best performance, keep
the interval set to resolution.
• If the receiver is turned off or satellite coverage is lost during
your trip, the TracBack draws a straight line between any
point where coverage was lost and where it resumed.
• If the track log’s changes in distance and direction are too
complex, 254 waypoints may not mark your path accurately.
The receiver then assigns the 254 waypoints to the most
significant points of your track, and simplifies segments with
fewer changes in direction.
For more information on setting up the Track options and saved
tracks, see pages 59.
• Always clear the track log at the starting point.
• The Record Mode option on the track log setup page must be
set to Fill or Wrap.
• There must be at least two track log points stored in memory
to create a TracBack route.

BASIC OPERATION > DSC
DSC
The DSC page of the Main Menu allows you to control and
set up the Digital Selective Calling (DSC) features on the
GPSMAP 192C.
Digital Selective Calling (DSC) uses marine VHF radio and
Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies to transmit and
receive location information. The chartplotter repeats the call
properties received from the VHF radio on the chartplotter. The
GPSMAP 192C requires input from a DSC enabled VHF radio to
display position, and sound/display alerts from a Distress Call or
Position Report. Conversely, the VHF radio requires input from a
GPS to transmit position coordinates for a Distress Call or Position
Report. For connection information, please refer to “Connecting
the Power and Data” on page 99.
An emergency DSC Distress Call allows a vessel in trouble
to transmit a substantial amount of information in a single
transmission or call, without the need for voice communication.
When any nearby rescuer receives the DSC signal, an alarm sounds
and they immediately receive the location of the caller. The rescuer
can then choose to navigate to the caller’s location to assist, or
forward the call on to the Coast Guard. When the Coast Guard
receives the call, they can immediately access the caller’s
22
information (such as who they are and the type of vessel) in their
database while they are in transit to the caller’s location.
A non-emergency DSC Position Report allows mariners to
exchange and display the positions of one another. When a DSC
position is received, the mariner can choose to create a waypoint or
to show the received location on an electronic map.
Anytime a vessel receives a DSC call, they can store and quickly
navigate to that location using a Go To. This makes DSC a time
saver, especially in an emergency situation. In order to use DSC,
users must first register their VHF radio with the FCC and receive a
Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number.
For more information about Digital Selective Calling and Maritime
Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) numbers, refer to page 103 in the
“Appendix.”
Understanding Distress Calls
When the GPSMAP 192C receives a Distress Call from a
connected DSC enabled VHF radio, an alert message and
notification page are displayed, and an alarm tone is sounded.
Distress Calls are shown in the DSC Call List, and Log with a
checkered symbol.
GPSMAP 192C Owner’s Manual
BASIC OPERATION > DSC
Understanding Position Reports
A Position Report is similar to a Distress Call except no alarm is
sounded. Position Reports are not broadcast to all DSC users and
are shown with a boat symbol.
Receiving DSC Calls
Each time you receive a Distress Call or Position Report, a
Notification page is displayed, and the call is placed in the DSC
Call List and Log. The Notification page contains information
about the call including: the type of call (distress or position
report), the MMSI number of the caller, a user definable name,
the time and date of the call, the Bearing and Distance from your
current position, and the coordinates of the caller. To see the
callers location on a map, select the Show Map button. To create a
waypoint at the callers location, select the Create Wpt button. To
close the Notification page, press the QUIT key.

Pointer Page
The Pointer page provides graphic steering guidance to a
destination waypoint, with an emphasis on the bearing to your
destination and current direction of travel. The middle of the
page features a rotating compass ring that shows your course
over ground (track) while you are moving, and a bearing pointer
that indicates the direction of the destination (bearing) relative
to the course over ground. The compass ring and pointer arrow
work independently to show—at a glance—the direction of your
movement and the direction to your destination. For instance, if
the arrow points up, you are going directly to the waypoint. If the
arrow points any direction other than up, turn toward the arrow
until it points up—then continue in that direction.
The current speed, distance to the next waypoint, turn angle and
current location are displayed at the top of the screen. This page
provides better steering guidance when traveling at slower speeds
and/or when making frequent directional changes. When you are
not navigating to a waypoint, the compass ring shows the current
direction of travel but the arrow does not appear.
NOTE: The bearing pointer, bearing bug, and compass ring
may point in various directions when you are stationary or at
very low speeds. When you start moving, the pointer is correct.

GPS Tab
The GPS tab provides a visual reference of satellite acquisition,
receiver status, and accuracy. The status information provides
an idea of what the receiver is doing at any given moment. The
sky view and signal strength bars give you an indication of what
satellites are visible to the receiver and whether or not they are
being tracked. The signal strength is shown on a bar graph for each
satellite, with the satellite number below. As the receiver locks onto
satellites, a signal strength bar appears for each satellite in view.
The progress of satellite acquisition is shown in three stages:
Main Menu
Tabs

• No signal strength bars—the receiver is looking for the
satellites indicated.
• Light signal strength bars—the receiver has found the
satellite(s) and is collecting data.
• Dark signal strength bars—the receiver has collected the
necessary data and the satellite(s) are ready for use.

The status field indicates a 2D or 3D, when the GPSMAP 192C has
collected the necessary data from satellites to calculate a fix. The
unit then updates the location, date, and time.
You can use the sky view to help determine if any satellites
are being blocked, and whether you have a current location fix
(indicated by a 2D, 2D Differential, 3D, or 3D Differential in
40
the status field). The sky view shows a bird’s-eye view of the
position of each satellite relative to the receiver’s last known
location. The outer circle represents the horizon (north up), the
inner circle 45º above the horizon, and the center point a position
directly overhead. You can also set the sky view to a Track Up
configuration, causing the top of the sky view to align along your
current track heading.
WAAS Capability
The GPSMAP 192C is capable of receiving WAAS (Wide Area
Augmentation System) satellite signals. WAAS is an FAA (Federal
Aviation Administration) funded project to improve the overall
accuracy and integrity of the GPS signal for aviation use, but land/
sea based users can also benefit from this system. At this time, the
system is still in the development stage and is not fully operational.
There are currently two WAAS satellites that can be received in
the U.S.A., one over the Atlantic Ocean and one over the Pacific
Ocean, in a geo-stationary orbit over the equator. Effective use
of the WAAS satellite signal may be limited by your geographic
location in relation to those satellites, now in developmental
service. WAAS satellite signal reception requires an absolute
clear view of the sky and works best when there are no nearby
obstructions such as buildings, mountains.
GPSMAP 192C Owner’s Manual
MAIN MENU > GPS TAB
WAAS satellites are numbered 33 or higher when viewing the sky
view on your GPSMAP 192C. Initial reception of the WAAS signal
can take up to 15-20 minutes, then 1-2 minutes afterwards. When
WAAS differential correction has been received for GPS satellites
(numbers 32 or below), a D appears in the signal bar of the sky
view and 2D or 3D Differential appears in the receiver status. To
learn more about the WAAS system, its satellite positions and
current state of development, visit the FAA web site
(http://gps.faa.gov). Since WAAS requires CPU resources of the
GPSMAP 192C to search for and track the satellites, you can
disable the WAAS feature to improve unit performance if WAAS
reception is not available in your area. Refer to the “Appendix” for
more information.
To Disable/Enable WAAS capability:
1. From the GPS tab, press MENU.
2. Use the ROCKER to highlight WAAS Off or WAAS On, and
press ENTER.
Highlight WAAS Off, and press ENTER
to disable the WAAS capabilities.

• AutoLocate—the receiver is looking for any satellite whose
almanac has been collected. This process can take up to five
minutes.
• Acquiring Satellites—the receiver is looking for and
collecting data from satellites visible at its last known or
initialized position, but has not collected enough data to
calculate a fix.
• 2D—at least three satellites with good geometry have been
acquired and a 2 dimensional position fix (latitude and
longitude) is being calculated. “2D Differential” appears
when you are receiving DGPS corrections in 2D mode and a
D shows on the strength bar of satellites being corrected.
• 3D—at least four satellites with good geometry have been
acquired and your location is now being calculated in
latitude, longitude and elevation. “3D Differential” appears
when you are receiving DGPS corrections in 3D mode and a
D shows on the strength bar of satellites being corrected.
• Poor GPS Coverage—the receiver is no longer tracking
enough satellites for a 2D or 3D fix.
• Receiver Not Usable—the receiver is unusable, possibly
due to interference or abnormal satellite conditions. Turn the
unit off and back on to reset.
• Simulating—the receiver is in Simulator Mode.

• Tuning Beacon—receiver is tuning manual DGPS
frequency.
• Receiving Beacon—unit is receiving DGPS corrections.
• Scanning Beacon—DGPS receiver is scanning for available
frequency.
The Differential SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) indicates, on a scale
to 0-30db with 30db being the best, the strength of the DGPS
signal being received. The SNR depends upon the mounting of
your DGPS receiver and the distance from the DGPS transmitting
station. If no optional DGPS receiver is used with the GPSMAP
192C, the DGPS Rcvr field displays Off.

USING SONAR > UNDERSTANDING SONAR
Understanding Sonar
The transducer mounted on your vessel transmits sound waves
toward the bottom of a lake, stream, or seabed in a cone-shaped
pattern. When a transmitted sound wave strikes an underwater
object—such as the bottom, a piece of structure, or a fish—sound
is reflected back to the transducer. The transducer collects the
reflected sound waves and sends the data to the GPSMAP 192C to
be processed and displayed. The underwater data is shown on the
Sonar display in the order that it is returned: first returned is the
first on the display.
Generally speaking, if the only thing between the transducer and
the bottom is water, the first strong return comes from the bottom
directly below the transducer and sets the bottom level. Weaker
secondary returns provide the detailed data. Stronger returns
display in darker colors, with red being the strongest return.
Understanding the Sonar Display
One of the first things to understand about sonar is that the
transducer sends a beam down to the bottom of the water, much
like the beam of a flashlight. The beam starts small near your
vessel and expands as it gets to the bottom. Refer to “Transducer
Coverage” for more detailed information.
The Sonar page does not display a three-dimensional representation
of the underwater environment; the display is in two-dimensions,
much like if you took a picture of an aquarium. Only the depth of
the item in the water is displayed. The Sonar display does not show
you where an item is located horizontally in the water, as shown in
the drawings below. The fish is not directly above the tree in reality,
but it can look like they are on the Sonar page.

USING SONAR > UNDERSTANDING SONAR
Transducer Coverage
The area covered by the transmitted sound waves is determined
by the cone angle of the transducer and the water depth. The wide
cone angles (40°) associated with low frequencies (50 kHz) provide
a large coverage area for finding fish within a coverage width that
is approximately 2/3 of the water depth. However, this also means
that wide cone angles produce less bottom detail and resolution.
As shown in the drawing on the near right, the 40° cone angle
produces a coverage area of approximately a 20-foot diameter
circle at a 30-foot depth.
The narrow cone angles (10°) associated with the high frequencies
(200 kHz) provide better bottom resolution and crisper detail, but
cannot show a large coverage area for finding fish. The 10° cone
angle provides a coverage width that is approximately 2/10 of the
water depth. As shown in the drawing on the far right, the 10° cone
angle produces a coverage area of approximately a 6-foot diameter
circle at a 30-foot depth.

USING SONAR > UNDERSTANDING SONAR
Whiteline
The Sounder Module can help you determine whether the bottom is
hard or soft. When the sonar sound waves are reflected back by the
bottom, a hard bottom returns a stronger signal than a soft bottom.
A thin whiteline indicates a softer bottom, while a thick whiteline
indicates a harder bottom. Normally, a red line is used to show the
point where water meets the bottom. This line follows the bottom
contour, along with any significant objects lying on the bottom.
The unit uses the whiteline function to make the bottom layer
information easier to distinguish.
Thermoclines
A rough definition of a thermocline is a break in water where
the water temperature changes faster than the water above it.
Thermoclines are shown as the weakest colors.
One of the unique features offered by Garmin is See-Thru®
technology, which allows the GPSMAP 192C to hear both weak
and strong signals simultaneously so as to identify fish returns
under the toughest conditions, such as suspended in thermoclines
or even hiding near structures. See-Thru technology allows the
Sounder Module to see through thermoclines and locate fish.

APPENDIX > INSTALLING THE GPSMAP 192C
Installing the GPSMAP 192C
The GPSMAP 192C must be properly installed according to the
following instructions to get the best possible performance. If
you have the GPSMAP 192C with the built-in internal bail mount
antenna, you can skip this section and proceed to the next page. For
units purchased with the remote antenna, follow the instructions
below. To complete the installation, you need the appropriate
fasteners and a 1" x 14-thread marine antenna mount available at
most marine dealers.
Mounting the GPS Antenna
The antenna should be mounted in a location that has a clear,
unobstructed view of the sky in all directions to ensure the best
reception. Avoid mounting the antenna where it is shaded by the
boat’s superstructure, a radome antenna, or mast. Sailboat users
should avoid mounting the antenna high on the mast to prevent
inaccurate speed readings caused by excessive heeling. Most
marine VHF and LORAN antennas should not seriously degrade
the GPS antenna’s reception. Never paint the antenna or clean it
with harsh solvents.
94
Suggested locations for mounting the external antenna.
The Garmin antenna screws directly onto any standard 1" x 14thread antenna mount. If you need to raise the antenna to avoid
shading, try using a 1" x 14-thread extension mast available at most
marine dealers.
NOTE: It is possible to route
the coaxial cable either through,
or outside the antenna mount. It
is possible to remove the BNC
connector on the coaxial cable
and the coaxial cable shortened
to ease installation, however,
doing so voids the antenna
warranty. If the BNC connector
is removed, it must be replaced
with a new solder-on or crimp
BNC connector.
GPSMAP 192C Owner’s Manual
APPENDIX > MOUNTING THE GPSMAP 192C UNIT
To install the GPS antenna:
1. Screw the antenna directly onto the 1" x 14-thread mount.
2. Route the cable to the mounting location of the display unit.
Use the appropriate tie-wraps, fasteners, and sealant to
secure the cable along the route and through any bulkhead
or deck.
3. After the GPSMAP 192C unit is installed, connect the cable
to the antenna connector on the back of the display unit.
Make sure that you turn the antenna cable connector 1/4
turn clockwise to lock the cable into place.
Mounting the GPSMAP 192C Unit
The GPSMAP 192C’s compact, waterproof case is suitable for
mounting in exposed locations or at the nav station. The unit comes
with a gimbal bracket that can be used for surface or overhead
mounting. When choosing a location for the display unit, consider
the following conditions:
• There should be at least a 3" (7 cm) clearance behind the
case to allow connection of the antenna (external antenna
only), power/data cables.
• The mounting surface should be heavy enough to support the
unit and protect it from excessive vibration and shock.
• For GPSMAP 192C units with the built-in internal bail
mount antenna, it should be mounted in a location that
has the clearest, most unobstructed view of the sky in all
directions to ensure the best reception. Avoid mounting the
unit where it is blocked by the boat’s superstructure, a radar
arch, or mast.
NOTE: The temperature range for the GPSMAP 192C is 5°F
to 158°F (-15°C to 70°C). Extended exposure to temperatures
exceeding this range (in storage or operating conditions) can
cause failure of the display. This type of failure and related
consequences are NOT covered by the manufacturer’s limited
warranty.

on the location rings. The unit can be set to display satellite
location with North or your current track at the top of the display.
GPSMAP 192C Owner’s Manual
The Satellite Strength Indicator Bars show the strength of the
signal being received, and the status of the signal. The bars are
either shaded or filled. The gray bar means the GPS is in the
process of storing orbital data it is receiving from the satellite
signal. When the bar turns solid, the GPS is using the satellite
signal for navigation. A “D” in or above the bar means that
differential corrections (WAAS or DGPS) are being applied to that
satellite.
Date, Time, and Current Location
The GPS gets date and time information from the satellite’s onboard atomic clock. When the GPS receiver has achieved a 2D or
3D GPS location, the current location is displayed in the selected
location format.

APPENDIX > WHAT IS A WAAS AND DGPS?
What is WAAS?
The Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) is an F.A.A. funded
project to improve the overall integrity of the GPS signal. It is
a space-based system that broadcasts integrity information and
correction data as determined by ground reference stations. WAAS
testing completed in September of 2003 confirmed an accuracy of 2
to 3 vertical meters throughout the majority of the continental U.S.
and portions of Alaska. For more information, go to
http://gps.faa.gov/Programs/WAAS/waas.htm.
What is Differential GPS (DGPS)?
The U.S. and Canadian governments (among others) have set up
Differential GPS (DGPS) stations to transmit correction signals.
They are operational in coastal areas and on many navigable river
systems. The DGPS system is available for use without a fee.
Please refer to the U.S. Coast Guard’s Web site,
http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/ for locations and the status of the
differential sites. Using DGPS requires additional equipment.
NOTE: If you are using the GPSMAP 192C outside of the
U.S., we recommend you turn off WAAS for the most accurate
location fix.

APPENDIX > WHAT IS MMSI?
What is a Maritime Mobile Service Identity
(MMSI)?
Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) basically allows a VHF
radio to act like a phone. In order to make a “call” on a phone,
you first need a phone number to dial. The 9 digit MMSI number
acts like a phone number when used in a Position Report and as a
unique identifier to the Coast Guard when used in an emergency
Distress Call. In order to obtain a Maritime Mobile Service Identity
(MMSI) number, users must register their VHF radio with the FCC
(Form 605). Garmin does not supply this number! Information to
obtain this number can be found on the next page.
How ARE MMSI assignments obtained?
Non-commercial users (for example, recreational users who remain
in domestic waters and only carry VHF, EPIRB (Emergency
Position Indicating Radio Beacons), and Radar) are not required to
have a FCC ship station license. The FCC and Coast Guard have
authorized some second and third party vendors to assign MMSI
numbers. This service is limited to registering recreational vessels
only. To receive information on how to obtain a recreational MMSI
number please contact: http://www.uscg.mil/rescue21/links/mmsi.
htm or http://wireless.fcc.gov/marine/.
GPSMAP 192C Owner’s Manual
U.S Non-Federal User: Commercial users, or those who travel
outside the U.S. or Canada, must apply for a ship station license, or
an amendment to a ship station license. To find out if you require
a Ship Station license contact: http://wireless.fcc.gov/marine/
fctsht14.html. If your vessel requires licensing by the FCC you
obtain a MMSI during the application/licensing process when you
file FCC Forms 159 and 605.
U.S. Federal User: Federal users can obtain MMSI assignments
from their agency radio spectrum management office. These
procedures are currently under review by the NTIA (National
Telecommunications and Information Administration).
Outside the U.S.: Users can obtain an MMSI assignment from their
telecommunications authority or ship registry, often by obtaining or
amending their ship station license.
In Canada: Industry Canada is responsible for assigning MMSI
numbers to commercial and recreational vessels. Information is
available at the following web site: http://apollo.ic.gc.ca/english/

APPENDIX > LORAN TD SYSTEM
LORAN TD System
LORAN C is a radio navigation aid operated and maintained in the
United States by the United States Coast Guard. The name LORAN
is an acronym for “LOng RAnge Navigation.” The LORAN system
covers the entire United States and the U.S. Coastal Confluence
Zone. From the perspective of a mariner, the system is used for
ocean and coastal navigation. It can be used as a supplemental
system for harbor and harbor approach navigation, and it is used
for inland navigation by recreational vehicles.
LORAN TD Feature
The LORAN TD (Time Delay) feature eases the transition from
using LORAN to using GPS. The GPSMAP unit automatically
converts GPS coordinates to LORAN TDs for those who have a
collection of LORAN fixes for favorite fishing spots and other
waypoints recorded as TDs. You can display your position as a TD
or enter waypoints as TDs. The accuracy to be expected from this
conversion is approximately 30 meters. When the unit is placed
in the LORAN TD format mode, it simulates the operation of a
LORAN receiver. Position coordinates can be displayed as TDs,
and all navigation functions can be used as if the unit was actually
receiving LORAN signals.
Using the LORAN TD Format
Change to Loran TD from the Units
tab on the Main Menu.
108
When creating new waypoints using LORAN TD coordinates,
you must set the correct LORAN chain number and secondary
stations in the Setup TD field before storing the waypoint. After
the waypoint is stored in unit memory, it always references the
LORAN chain number and secondary stations currently selected in
the Setup TD field. If you enter a different LORAN chain number
or change the secondary stations or offsets in the Setup TD field,
the active waypoint information reflects those changes. Since the
GPSMAP 192C does not rely on the LORAN signal for navigation,
it can reference a different GRI chain and/or secondary stations and
still navigate to the location stored in memory.
GPSMAP 192C Owner’s Manual
APPENDIX > LORAN TD SYSTEM
The LORAN Position Format field is located under the Setup–
Location tab in the Main Menu. The LORAN TD Setup window
contains the fields to select the Loran GRI-Chain Number, Primary
and Secondary Stations, and TD Offsets.
To set up Loran TD from the Main Menu:
1. Press MENU twice to display the Main Menu.
2. Using the ROCKER, highlight the Position Format field on
the Units tab, and press ENTER.
3. Highlight Loran TD and press ENTER.
4. Highlight Setup and press ENTER.
5. To change the settings of any of the five fields, highlight
the field, press ENTER, select/enter the setting, then press
ENTER.
6. When finished, highlight Save, and press ENTER.
If the active GRI Chain, secondary stations, or offsets have been
changed since the waypoint was created, the waypoint now
references the active GRI-chain and secondary stations. You must
adjust the TD coordinates accordingly. Remember that the GPS
is not relying on the LORAN signal for navigation and actually
converts the TD coordinate to a useful LAT/LON coordinate before
storing the waypoint to memory or using it for navigation. Because
of this, the unit can navigate to a TD coordinate anywhere in the
world.
You must know your GRI chain number and secondary stations
to create a LORAN TD position. For more information please
read our LORAN TD Position Format Handbook, available at the
Garmin Web site (www.garmin.com/support/userManual.jsp.)

Safety Information
MAP DATA INFORMATION: One of the goals of Garmin is to provide
customers with the most complete and accurate cartography that is available
to us at a reasonable cost. We use a combination of governmental and private
data sources, which we identify as required in product literature and copyright
messages displayed to the consumer. Virtually all data sources contain
inaccurate or incomplete data to some degree. This is particularly true outside
the United States, where complete and accurate digital data is either not
available or prohibitively expensive.
CAUTION: IT IS THE USER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO USE THIS
PRODUCT PRUDENTLY. THIS PRODUCT IS INTENDED TO BE USED
ONLY AS A NAVIGATIONAL AID AND MUST NOT BE USED FOR ANY
PURPOSE REQUIRING PRECISE MEASUREMENT OF DIRECTION,
DISTANCE, LOCATION OR TOPOGRAPHY. THIS PRODUCT SHOULD
NOT BE USED TO DETERMINE GROUND PROXIMITY FOR
AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION.
WARNING: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the
United States government, which is solely responsible for its accuracy
and maintenance. The system is subject to changes which could affect the
accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment. Although the Garmin
GPSMAP 192C is a precision electronic NAVigation AID (NAVAID), any
NAVAID can be misused or misinterpreted, and therefore become unsafe.
CAUTION: Use the GPSMAP 192C at your own risk. To reduce the risk of
unsafe operation, carefully review and understand all aspects of this Owner’s
Manual—and thoroughly practice operation using Simulator Mode prior
to actual use. When in actual use, carefully compare indications from the
