Introduction
Warnings and Cautions
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.
The electronic chart is an aid to navigation and is designed to facilitate the use of authorized government charts,
not replace them. Only official government charts and notices to mariners contain all information needed for safe
navigation – and, as always, the user is responsible for their prudent use.
Use the GPSMAP 2006/2010 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 the simulator mode prior
to actual use. When in actual use, carefully compare indications from the GPSMAP 2006/2010 to all available
navigation sources, including the information from other NAVAIDs, visual sightings, charts, etc. For safety, always
resolve any discrepancies before continuing navigation.
FCC Compliance
The GPSMAP 2006/2010 complies with Part 15 of the FCC interference limits for Class B digital devices FOR
HOME OR OFFICE USE. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in
a residential installation, and are more stringent than “outdoor” requirements.
Operation of this device is subject to the following conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
F
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 equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by reorienting or relocating the receiving antenna, increasing the
separation between the equipment and receiver and/or connecting the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The GPS GPSMAP 2006/2010 does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Repairs should only be made by an
authorized GARMIN service center. Unauthorized repairs or modifications could result in permanent damage to the
equipment, and void your warranty and your authority to operate this device under Part 15 regulations.

Getting Started
First let’s take a look at the Main Display Pages as they come from the factory. There are five pages:
the Map Page, Compass Page, Numbers Page, Highway Page and the Active Route Page. When the unit is
turned on the first Main Page displayed is the Map Page.
Main Page Sequence
To scroll through the Main Display Pages:
1. Press the PAGE key. Each time the PAGE key is pressed the GPSMAP 2006/2010 will display the next
Main Page.
2. The QUIT key acts like the PAGE key in reverse. Each time the QUIT key is pressed, the next Main Page
will be displayed in a reverse sequence.

While learning the basic operation of the GPSMAP 2006/2010, let’s put the unit into its Simulator
Mode. The Simulator Mode is great for practicing with the unit. When the unit is in Simulator Mode, it will
not accept GPS input, but will simulate satellite navigation. When in the Simulator Mode, the GPSMAP
2006/2010 CAN NOT be used for actual navigation.
I
NOTE: Do not try to navigate while using the Simulator Mode. When the GPSMAP
2006/2010 is using the built-in simulator, the unit is not accepting GPS input. The unit will,
however, simulate actual satellite navigation.

3. The “Simulator Setup” window will be displayed.
There are six parameters that can be set for the simulator: “Current Time”, “Current Date”, “Track
Control”, “Track”, “Speed”, and “Set Position” (SOFT KEY). We need to change the “Current Time” and
“Current Date” settings.
There are two methods that you can use when entering alpha-numeric data, one is the
ARROW KEYPAD and the other is the DATA ENTRY keys. We will use the ARROW KEYPAD for
setting the Current Time and Current Date. See page 7 for instructions using the DATA ENTRY keys.
Current Time:
1. Using the ARROW KEYPAD, highlight the “Current Time” field and press the ENTER/MARK key.
2. Using the Right/Left function of the ARROW KEYPAD, place the highlight on the correct digit to begin
entering the current time.
3. Using the Up/Down function of the ARROW KEYPAD, scroll through the list until the correct number is
displayed. Press the ARROW KEYPAD to the right to highlight the next digit.
Select this SOFT KEY to start the Simulator
4. Continue this process until the correct “Current Time” is displayed then press the ENTER/MARK key
to accept the new time.
Current Date:
1. Using the ARROW KEYPAD, highlight the “Current Date” field and press the ENTER/MARK key.
2. Using the Right/Left function of the ARROW KEYPAD, place the highlight on the correct digit to begin
entering the Current Date.
3. Using the Up/Down function of the ARROW KEYPAD, scroll through the list until the correct number is
displayed. Press the ARROW KEYPAD to the right to highlight the next digit.
4. When the month is highlighted the Up/Down function of the ARROW KEYPAD will scroll through a list of
the months. Select the current month then move to the next digit.
After the ‘Start Simulator’ SOFT KEY has been pressed, the
“Simulator Setup” window will be displayed. Set the current
time and date, and change the “Track Control” to ‘User Track’.
When finished press the QUIT key to begin simulation.
5. Continue entering the date, when finished, press the ENTER/MARK key to accept the new date.

4. Use the ARROW KEYPAD to scroll through alpha-numeric character lists when entering data.
Creating Waypoints
There will be many times that you will need to enter data in the GPSMAP 2006/2010, an example is
naming a waypoint. We have already taken a brief look at entering data, but let’s practice some more.
Through this exercise we will create a new waypoint, name the waypoint, and assign a symbol to
the waypoint. The term “Waypoint” may be new to you. You will find the term “Waypoint” is used
frequently when talking about navigation. A “Waypoint” is a position stored in the unit’s memory, that
can be used for navigation. Waypoints are used for direct navigation, or you can use several waypoints
to build a route.
Creating, “Marking” a waypoint in the 2006/2010 is really very easy. The unit has to be turned on and
receiving at least three satellite signals or in Simulator Mode to mark a waypoint.
Marking your present position as a Waypoint:
1. Press and hold the ENTER/MARK key (more than 1 second) until the ‘New Waypoint’ window is displayed.

Captured Location
When you hold the ENTER/MARK key, the GPSMAP 2006/2010 captures its current location and
displays the ‘New Waypoint’ window. You can see that the unit assigned a square as the default symbol

Using the Compass Page
Located on the Compass Page are the Bearing Pointer, and a Compass Ring. When you are moving, the
Bearing Pointer points toward your destination, while the Compass Ring reflects the direction that you
are traveling. In short, when you are headed directly toward your destination, the Bearing Pointer will
point toward the top of the display, aligned with the vertical line displayed in the Compass Ring. If you
are not heading toward your destination, the Bearing Pointer will turn, continuing to point toward your
destination. To head toward your destination, turn until the Bearing Pointer is realigned with the vertical
line in the Compass Ring.

Receiver
The first time you power up your new GPSMAP 2006/2010 and GPS 17N receiver, the receiver
must be given an opportunity to collect satellite data and establish its present position. To ensure proper
initialization, the GPS 17N is shipped from the factory in AutoLocate mode, which will allow the receiver
to “find itself” anywhere in the world. To speed up the initialization process, we recommend using the
graphic initialization process, which will usually provide a position fix within a few minutes. If you know
your approximate coordinates, you may also enter the position as text.
Before you initialize, make sure the GPSMAP 2006/2010 unit and GPS 17N antenna have been
correctly installed on your vessel according to the instructions in the 2006/2010 Installation Guide. The
antenna needs a clear and unobstructed view of the sky to receive satellite signals.
To turn the GPSMAP 2006/2010 on:
1. Press and hold the POWER key until the display comes on, then release the POWER key.
A warning page will appear, asking you to read and acknowledge important information regarding
the proper use of the unit.
Warning page
To acknowledge the warning:
1. After reading the warning, press the ENTER/MARK key if you agree.
Next you will see the GPS Info window which provides a visual reference of satellite acquisition, GPS
receiver status, and accuracy. The status information will give you an idea of what the GPS receiver is
doing at any given moment.
To graphically initialize the GPSMAP 2006/2010:
1. From the GPS Info window, press the ‘Set Position’ SOFT KEY.
Point to your approximate location and press ENTER/MARK.
2. The Initialize Position Page will appear, prompting you to select your approximate location with the map
cursor. Use the ARROW KEYPAD to move the map cursor and point to your approximate location within
200 miles. If you have difficulty identifying your position, press and release the IN key to zoom in to view
the map at the next lower scale.
3. Once you have determined your approximate location on the map, press the ENTER/MARK key.

satellite acquisition. If the unit displays “Ready (2D) or (3D )” during this process, it is not
necessary to initialize the unit.
The GPSMAP 2006/2010 will now begin searching for the appropriate satellites for your region and
should acquire a fix within a few minutes. When viewing the GPS Info, a signal strength bar for each
satellite in view will appear on the bottom of the page, with the appropriate satellite number under each
bar. The progress of satellite acquisition is shown in three stages:
• 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 (green on color models)— the receiver has collected the necessary data
and the satellite(s) are ready for use.
A satellite’s strength bars will turn black (or green) when it’s ready
for use.
Once the receiver has collected information from at least three satellites, the top of the screen will
display either “Ready (2D or 3D)”, the GPS Info window will automatically disappear and the display will
switch to the Map Page showing your current position. The GPSMAP 2006/2010 is now ready for use!
The GPS Info may also be accessed from the Main Menu once the unit is ready to navigate. For
more detailed information on the GPS Info tab and its related options, see pages 46-49. The GPS Info

The GPSMAP 2006/2010’s Map Page provides a comprehensive display of electronic cartography,
plotting and navigational data. When using the unit with the optional BlueChart data or MapSource
software, the map display shows your boat on a digital chart, complete with geographic names, map items,
navaids and a host of other chart features. Additional information on BlueChart data may be found in
the “BlueChart User’s Guide”. It also plots your track and displays any routes and waypoints you create.
An on-screen cursor lets you pan and scroll to other map areas, determine the distance and bearing to a
position, and perform various route and waypoint functions.

Data Fields
When the cursor is active, an additional data window will appear above the map to indicate the
position, any identifying text, range and bearing to the cursor or a selected waypoint or map item. The map
scale displays at the bottom right of the map.
The IN and OUT keys, combined with the ARROW KEYPAD, let you select zoom ranges and move
the cursor. Two basic map operating modes, position mode and cursor mode, determine what cartography
is shown on the map display. Position mode pans the cartography to keep the present position marker
within the display area, while cursor mode pans the cartography to keep the cursor within the display
area.
The GPSMAP 2006/2010 system will always power up in the position mode, with your vessel centered
on the map display. When sufficient map coverage is not available to keep the boat centered, the boat icon
will move toward the edge of the display.

Using the Cursor
The cursor allows you to pan away from your present position and scroll to other map areas around the
world (even outside of your current detail coverage). As you pan past the edge of the current map display,
the screen will actively scroll forward to provide continuous map coverage. You will see an hourglass
symbol by the pointer while the unit is busy drawing new map detail.
To move the cursor:
1. Press the ARROW KEYPAD to move the cursor in an up, down, left or right direction.
As you move the cursor, the distance and bearing from your present position to the cursor will be
displayed in the data window, along with the cursor’s position coordinates. Keep in mind that when the
cursor is stationary, the distance and bearing from your present position will change as your boat moves.
The cursor may also be used to ‘snap’ to on-screen waypoints and map items, allowing you to review a
selected position directly from the map display.
Move the cursor over an item on the map to highlight it.
Additional information tabs.
To select an on-screen waypoint or map item with the cursor:
1. Use the ARROW KEYPAD to move the cursor to the desired waypoint or map item (if there are several
waypoints grouped closely together, zoom in closer for a better view).
2. When a waypoint or map item is selected, it will become highlighted on screen, with the name and position
displayed. Press ENTER/MARK to show details of the map item. When using BlueChart or MapSource

Whenever a Go To, Follow Track (TracBack) or Follow Route have been activated, the GPSMAP
2006/2010’s Compass Page will guide you to your destination with digital readouts and a graphic compass
display, which includes a bearing pointer. Use this page when travelling at slower speeds, when making
frequent directional changes, or where straight-line navigation is not possible due to obstructions or
terrain. The left side of the page features a rotating ‘compass ring’ that shows your course over ground
(track) while you’re moving. Your present course over ground is indicated at the top of the compass ring.
A bearing pointer arrow, in the middle of the compass ring, and a bearing ‘bug’ indicator on the outside
of the compass ring, indicate 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 and bug
indicator until it points up, then continue in that direction.

Whenever a Go To, TracBack or Route has been activated, the GPSMAP 2006/2010’s Highway Page
will provide digital and graphic steering guidance to the destination. The right side of the Highway Page
features user-selectable data fields that display useful navigation data. Additionally, a compass ribbon is
displayed, across the top of the page, to show your current heading along with a dark, vertical bar (Orange
on color models) which will indicate the bearing to your course. When the dark, vertical indicator lines up
with the lighter gray (or red) bar in the middle, you are heading directly towards the current navigation
point. You can tell if you are off your desired track line by viewing the bottom section of the screen which
provides visual guidance to the waypoint on a graphic highway display. The line down the center of the
highway represents your desired track line.
As you head toward your destination, the highway perspective moves to indicate your progress to
the waypoint and which direction you should steer to stay on course. If you are navigating a route, the
Highway Page shows each route waypoint in sequence connected by a “road” with a line down the middle,
which is your desired track line. Nearby waypoints not in the active route can also be displayed. The

Creating and Using Waypoints
The GARMIN GPSMAP 2006/2010 stores up to 3000 alphanumeric waypoints with a user-defined
icon, comments and depth (depth will automatically be displayed if valid sonar data is being received. See
pg. 70) available for each waypoint. Waypoints can be created using two basic methods:
• ENTER/MARK key– used primarily for marking your present position. You may also enter a new
waypoint’s position coordinates manually (from a chart, etc.).
• Graphically– allows you to define a new waypoint position from the map display using the ARROW
KEYPAD.

Going to a Destination
Using the NAV key, the GPSMAP 2006/2010 provides three ways to navigate to a destination: Go To
Point, Follow Route and Follow Track (TracBack). Once you are actively navigating, you will see a straight
line that always runs from your current location to the destination. The easiest method for selecting a
destination is the ‘Go To’ function, which lets you select a destination point and quickly sets a direct course
from your present position. If you have a point, route or track highlighted on a list or the map, ‘Go To
<point name>’ will appear in addition to ‘Go To Point’. The ‘Go To’ function can be accessed from any list
of points or graphically from the map display.
Reference
Going To a Destination
To activate a ‘Go To’ from a point list:
1. Press the NAV key.
2. Use the ARROW KEYPAD to highlight ‘Go To Point’ and press ENTER/MARK.
3. From the ‘Find’ menu, highlight ‘Waypoints’ and press ENTER/MARK. (You may also choose to go to other
points, such as Cities, Tide Stations, etc. from this list.)
4. To select a waypoint from the waypoint lists, use the ARROW KEYPAD to highlight either the ‘User’ or
‘Nearest From Current Location’ tab, select a waypoint and press ENTER/MARK. Use the zoom IN and
OUT buttons and the ARROW KEYPAD to select a waypoint, then press ENTER/MARK.
Choose a waypoint from either the ‘User’ or ‘Nearest From
Current Location’ tab list.
5. You may also activate a ‘Go To’ for any point, on any list. With any list point highlighted, press the NAV key.
You will see ‘Go To <point name>’ appear, then press ENTER/MARK.
Selecting a ‘Go To’ Graphically
A graphical ‘Go To’ may be used to select one of three items from the map display: an existing
waypoint, an on-screen map item (roads, rivers, cities, navaids, etc.), or a new map point (non-map item).
If you are selecting a map item as the ‘Go To’ destination, the GPSMAP 2006/2010 will automatically
use the name of the map item, but the point will not be stored in the waypoint list. See page 26 for
creating waypoints using map items. If you are selecting a new map point (non-map item) as the ‘Go
To’ destination, the GPSMAP 2006/2010 will automatically create or move a waypoint named ‘MAP’ at
the cursor position.
The waypoint or map item name will automatically appear
when highlighted and NAV is pressed.

Reference
TracBack Navigation
To activate an existing waypoint or map item as a ‘Go To’ from the map display:
1. Use the ARROW KEYPAD to highlight the waypoint or map item on screen and press NAV.
2. You will see ‘Go To <waypoint name>’, then press ENTER/MARK. You may also highlight the waypoint or
map item, press ENTER/MARK to review it first, press NAV and then press ENTER/MARK.
To activate a new map point (non-map item) as a ‘Go To’ from the map display:
1. Use the ARROW KEYPAD to move the arrow cursor to the desired position.
2. Press NAV, you will see ‘Go To MAP Point’ highlighted, then press ENTER/MARK.
TracBack Navigation (Follow Track)
‘Go To MAP Point’ allows you to navigate to a spot on the map
which is not a waypoint or map item.
The second method of navigating to a destination is by using the TracBack or Follow Track feature. The
TracBack function allows you to retrace your path using the track log automatically stored in the receiver’s
memory, which will eliminate the need to store waypoints along the way. TracBack routes are created by
reducing your track log into a route of up to 50 turns and activating a route along those points. Once
activated, a TracBack route will lead you along the stored track log points, so it’s a good idea to clear the
existing track log before the start of your current trip.
To clear the track log and define a starting point for a TracBack route:

3. If you wish to navigate from the end to the beginning (reverse) of your trip, press the ‘Invert’ SOFT KEY.
Once a TracBack has been activated, the GPSMAP 2006/2010 will take the track log currently stored in
memory and divide it into segments called ‘legs’. Up to 50 temporary ‘turns’ will be 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:
• Always clear the track log at the beginning of your trip.
• 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.
• If the track log interval is set to the ‘Time’ option, the route may not follow your exact path (keep
the interval set to ‘resolution’ for best performance).
• If the receiver is turned off or satellite coverage is lost during your trip, the TracBack will draw a
straight line between any point where coverage was lost and where it resumed.
• If your track log’s changes in distance and direction are too complex, 50 points may not mark
your path accurately. The receiver then assigns the 50 points to the most significant points of
your track, and simplifies segments with fewer changes in direction.

2006/2010 system lets you create and store up to 50 reversible routes (numbered 1-50), with up to 50
waypoints each. Routes can be created and modified in two ways. The first way is from the ‘Edit on Map’
from the Route Edit map page, allowing you to see each route graphically on-screen as you create, review,
or modify the route. The second way is to ‘Edit as Text’ from the Route Review page, allowing you to see

GPS Info Tab— provides a visual reference of satellite acquisition, GPS receiver status, and accuracy.
When the unit is powered up, a GPS Info window will appear after the Warning screen. This window will
automatically disappear when the unit is ready to navigate. The status information will give you an idea of
what the GPS 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 will appear for each satellite in view, with the appropriate satellite
number underneath each bar. The progress of satellite acquisition is shown in three stages:
• 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 (or green) signal strength bars— the receiver has collected the necessary data and the
satellite(s) are ready for use.
As soon as the GPS receiver has collected the necessary data from the best satellites in view to calculate
a fix, the GPSMAP 2006/2010 status field will indicate a 2D or 3D status. The unit will then update
the position, date and time.
You can use the sky view to help determine if any satellites are being blocked, and whether you have
a current position fix (indicated by a ‘2D’,‘2D Differential’,‘3D’, or ‘3D Differential’ in the status field). The
sky view shows a bird’s-eye view of the position of each satellite relative to the GPS antenna’s last known
position. 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 2006/2010 is capable of receiving WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) satellite
signal input. 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 may 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
Reference
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, etc. WAAS satellites will be numbered 33 or higher
when viewing the sky view on your GPSMAP 2006/2010. Initial reception of the WAAS signal may take
up to 15-20 minutes each day, then 1-2 minutes afterwards. When WAAS differential correction has been
received for GPS satellites (numbers 32 or below), ‘2D or 3D Differential’ will appear 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).
Receiver Status, Accuracy and DOP
Receiver status is indicated at the top field of the page, with the current Accuracy, Dilution Of Precision
(DOP) and, if equipped with an optional Differential Beacon receiver, Beacon SNR (Signal Noise Ratio)
above the sky view. DOP is an indication of satellite geometry quality measured on a scale of one to
ten (lowest numbers the best, highest numbers the poorest). Accuracy uses DOP and other factors to
calculate horizontal position accuracy in feet or meters. The status field will show one of the following
conditions:
• Waiting for GPS Antenna— the GPS 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 or a
GPS receiver is not connected.
• Ready (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’ will appear when you are
receiving DGPS corrections in 2D mode.
• Ready (3D)— at least four satellites with good geometry have been acquired and your position is
now being calculated in latitude, longitude and altitude. ‘3D Differential’ will appear when you are
receiving DGPS corrections in 3D mode.
• Lost Position from GPS Antenna— the GPS receiver is no longer tracking enough satellites for a 2D
or 3D fix or connection has been lost between the GPS receiver and the 2006/2010.
• Simulating— the 2006/2010 is in simulator mode.
• GPS Antenna is Simulating— the 2006/2010 is receiving simulated NMEA input information.
Main Menu: GPS Info Tab
I
Since the 2006/2010 can receive position information from a
non-GARMIN NMEA source, it is possible to have a ‘“Ready
(2D) or (3D)” status with no satellite data.
47
Reference
Main Menu: GPS Info Tab
The Differential Receiver status will show one of the following:
• None— No optional beacon receiver attached or enabled in the DGPS Setup.
• Searching For WAAS— WAAS is enabled and the GPS receiver is searching for WAAS signal
• Using WAAS— WAAS capability enabled and unit receiving WAAS corrections
• No Beacon Signal— Beacon receiver attached, but not transmitting RTCM data to GPS receiver
• Tuning Beacon— Receiver is tuning manual Beacon frequency
• Receiving Beacon— Unit is receiving Beacon corrections
• Scanning Beacon— Beacon receiver is scanning for available frequency
• Check Wiring— GPS receiver is not making connection with the Beacon receiver.
The Differential SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) indicates, on a scale to 0-30db with 30db being the best,
the strength of the Beacon signal being received. The SNR will depend upon the mounting of your Beacon
receiver and the distance from the Beacon transmitting station. The DGPS beacon transmitters are operated
by the U.S. Coast Guard (or similar government agency in other countries), which is responsible for their
accuracy and maintenance. For DGPS beacon transmitter problems or to find the most updated list of frequencies and coverage areas, contact your local USCG, or see their web site at http://www.navcen.uscg.mil/

Main Menu: Tracks Tab
Track Tab— lets you specify whether or not to record a track log (an electronic ‘breadcrumb trail’
recording of your path), define how it is recorded, or save track log data for future use. The Track Logs
Page also provides an indicator of the memory used for the active track log and options to clear the
track memory or start a TracBack route. See pages 32-33 for TracBack information. The Track submenu is
divided in two tabs: ‘Active’ tab and the ‘Saved’ tab.
The ‘Active’ tab is for the active log (the log currently being recorded). It displays track memory used
and current settings.
The ‘Saved’ tab displays and manages a list of any saved track logs, allows TracBack activation, map
display of saved logs. The active log stores up to approximately 5,000 track log points, based upon the
criteria specified in the Track settings. Up to 20 track logs may be saved in memory, with up to 1000
track log points in each saved log.
For the ‘Active’ tab, the following settings are available:
• Record Mode— lets you select one of three track recording options:
Off— No track log will be recorded. Note that selecting the ‘Off’ setting will prevent you from
using the TracBack feature.
Fill— a track log will be recorded until the track memory is full.
Wrap— A track log will be continuously recorded, wrapping through the available memory
(replacing the oldest track data with new data).
• Interval— defines the frequency at which the track plot is recorded. Three interval settings are
available:
Distance— records track based on a user-defined distance between points.
Time— records track plot based on a user-defined time interval.
Resolution— records track plot and will automatically optimize the number and frequency of
track points depending on the complexity of the route. The resolution option is the default setting
and is recommended for the most efficient use track performance. The distance value (entered in
the value field) will determine the sensitivity of route changes. A higher value will produce a less
sensitive or detailed track and a lower value, a more sensitive or detailed track.
• Value— defines the distance or time used to record the track log.

WARNING: Selecting the wrong map datum can result in substantial position errors. When
in doubt, use the default WGS 84 datum for best overall performance.
• Heading— lets you select the reference used in calculating heading information. You can select
from ‘Auto Mag Var’, ‘True’, ‘Grid’ and ‘User Mag Var’. ‘Auto Mag Var’ provides magnetic north
heading references which are automatically determined from your current position. ‘True’ provides
headings based upon a true north reference. ‘Grid’ provides headings based on a grid north reference (and is used in conjunction with the grid position formats described on page 56). ‘User Mag
Var’ allows you to specify the magnetic variation at your current position and provides magnetic
north heading references based upon the variation you enter.
To enter a user defined magnetic variation:

Main Menu: Units Tab- Loran TD
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
thirty meters. When the unit is placed in the LORAN TD format mode, it simulates the operation of a
LORAN receiver. Position coordinates may be displayed as TDs, and all navigation functions may be used
as if the unit was actually receiving LORAN signals.
Using the LORAN TD Format
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 will always reference the LORAN chain number and secondary stations currently
selected in the Setup TD field. If you enter a different LORAN chain number, change the secondary stations
or offsets in the Setup TD field, the active waypoint information will reflect those changes. Since the
GPSMAP unit 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.
The LORAN Position Format field is located under the Units 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.
58
To setup Loran TD from the Main Menu:
1. Using the ARROW KEYPAD, highlight the “Units” tab and then the “Position Format” field press
ENTER/MARK. You may also press the ‘Loran TD On’ SOFT KEY from the “Units” tab .(If you use ‘Loran
TD On’, skip to step 3.)
Reference
Main Menu: Units Tab- Loran TD
2. Highlight ‘Loran TD’, press ENTER/MARK, then press the ‘Grid Setup’ SOFT KEY.
3. To change the settings of any of the five fields, highlight the field, press ENTER/MARK, select/enter the
desired setting using the DATA ENTRY keys and press ENTER/MARK.
4. When done, press the QUIT key to return to the Main Menu.
5. To return to the previous position format, press the ‘Loran TD Off’ SOFT KEY.
If the active GRI Chain, secondary stations or offsets have been changed since the waypoint was
created, the waypoint will now reference the active GRI-chain and secondary stations and 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 (in the background) 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.

Installing and Removing Data Cards
The GPSMAP 2006/2010 uses optional GARMIN marine BlueChart and MapSource data cards to
display digital charts and maps on-screen. Data cards are installed in the card slots located on the left
side of the unit. Up to two data cards may be installed or removed at any time, whether the unit is
on or off.
To install a data card:
1. Open the card door by pressing the locking tab on the door towards the outside (left) of the unit and
lifting the door open from right to left.
2. Insert the card(s), with the label facing right and the handle towards you, into the slot.
3. Firmly push the card into the unit. It is not necessary to force the card and about 3/16” (5mm) will still
be exposed when it is properly inserted. If the unit is on, a confirmation tone will sound. The first time
you insert a programmed data card, the unit will take a few seconds to read the card. Once the data
card has been been properly installed and accepted, a summary screen noting the card details will appear.
Press ENTER/MARK to acknowledge.
4. Close the cover until the locking tab on the door snaps into place.
Appendix E
Installing/Removing Data cards
Locking Tab
If you insert a data card and get a ‘card format not recognized’ message, try removing the card
and reinserting it. If the card is still not recognized, contact the GARMIN or your GARMIN dealer for
assistance. Data cards are not waterproof, should not be exposed to moisture or excessive static charges,
and should be stored in the case supplied with the card. Be sure to keep the data card door closed when
not inserting or removing data cards.
To remove a data card:
1. Open the card door by pressing the locking tab on the door towards the outside (left) of the unit and
lifting the door open from right to left.
2. Grasp the card handle and pull towards you firmly.
3. If the unit is on, a confirmation tone will sound when the data card has been removed.
4. Close the cover until the locking tab on the door snaps into place.

UNIT CARE
Cleaning - The GPSMAP 2006C/2010C lens is coated with
a special anti-reflective coating which is very sensitive to skin
oils, waxes and abrasive cleaners. CLEANERS CONTAINING
AMMONIA WILL HARM THE ANTI-REFLECTIVE COATING. It is very important to clean the lens using an eyeglass lens
cleaner which is specified as safe for anti-reflective coatings and
a clean, lint-free cloth. Units with a monochrome display may
use the same cleaning method.
The unit’s case is constructed of high quality material and does
not require user maintenance other than cleaning. Clean the unit
housing using a cloth lightly dampened with a mild detergent
solution and then wipe dry. Avoid chemical cleaners and solvents
that may damage plastic components. Do not apply cleaner to
electrical contacts on the back of the unit.
Storage - Do not store the unit where exposure to temperature
extremes may occur (see pg. 70), as permanent damage may
result. User information, such as waypoints, routes, etc. will be
retained in the unit’s memory, without the need for external
power. It is always a good practice to back up important user
data by manually recording it or downloading it to a PC (see
pg. 60).
