WARNING: The GPS system 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 3006C/3010C is a precision electronic
NAVigation AID (NAVAID), any NAVAID can be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore, become unsafe.
Introduction
Warnings and Cautions
CAUTION: 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.
CAUTION: Use the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C 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 3006C/3010C to all available navigation sources, including the information from other
NAVAIDs, visual sightings, charts, etc. For safety, always resolve any discrepancies before continuing
navigation.
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.
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.

Sequence
Receiver
Initializing the Receiver
The first time you power up your new GPSMAP 3006C/3010C MFD and GPS 17 receiver, the receiver
must be given an opportunity to collect satellite data and establish its present position. To ensure proper
initialization, the GPS 17 is shipped from the factory in AutoLocate mode, which allows the receiver to
“find itself” anywhere in the world. The MFD usually provides a position fix within a few minutes.
Before you initialize, make sure the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C unit and GPS 17 antenna have been correctly installed on your vessel according to the instructions in the Installation Guide. The antenna needs a
clear and unobstructed view of the sky to receive satellite signals.
To turn the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C on:
GPS Icon
Status Bar
GPS Tab
Press and hold the POWER key until the display comes on, then release the POWER key.
An Introduction page appears, displaying unit information, Network Connections (attached devices)
and important information regarding the proper use of the unit. It takes a few seconds for the MFD to
search for attached devices. Once the search is complete, the “I Agree” button highlights in yellow. After
reading the Introduction, press the ENTER key if you agree.
Next, you see the first of the Main Pages (see page 18), which is the Map Page. The GPSMAP 3006C/
3010C now begins searching for the GPS satellites. The first time that the unit acquires satellites take several minutes. Afterwards, acquisition times are quicker during normal use. The GPS Status icon on the left
side of the Status Bar (see also page 17) shows the progress of the satellite acquisition process. The GPS
icon status colors are:
Red— Acquiring Satellites/ Lost Satellite Reception
Orange— Ready For Navigation/ Ready For Navigation with WAAS
Gray— Lost GPS connection. (Check GPS antenna wiring connections.)
A more detailed visual reference of the satellite acquisition, GPS receiver status, and accuracy is also
available from the GPS tab on the Main Menu.
To view the GPS tab information:
1. Press and hold ADJ/MENU for two seconds, then release. The Main Menu appears.
16
2. If not already highlighted, use the ARROW KEYPAD to highlight the ‘GPS’ tab.
When viewing the GPS Info, a signal strength bar for each satellite in view appears on the right of the
page, with the appropriate satellite number under each bar. The progress of satellite acquisition is shown
in three stages:

Creating Waypoints
Through this exercise you will create a new waypoint, name the waypoint, and assign a symbol to
the waypoint. You will find the term “Waypoint” is used frequently when talking about navigation. A
“Waypoint” is a position stored in the MFD’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, or “Marking” a waypoint in the MFD is really very easy. The unit has to be turned on and
receiving at least three satellite signals to mark a waypoint.
Marking your present position as a Waypoint:
Press and hold the ENTER/MARK key for two seconds until the waypoint Review page is displayed.
Waypoint Review Page
When you hold the ENTER/MARK key, the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C captures its current location and
displays the Review page. The MFD assigns a square as the default symbol and a number as the default
name. The ‘OK’ button is now highlighted. Pressing ENTER stores the new waypoint using the default
settings for the symbol and name, or you may change the symbol.
Changing the symbol:
1. Using the ARROW KEYPAD, highlight the symbol field, then press ENTER. This displays an alphabetical
list showing all of the available symbols.
2. Using the ARROW KEYPAD, highlight a symbol and then press ENTER.
We will enter a new waypoint name using the DATA ENTRY keys. When entering data using the
DATA ENTRY keys, press the key repeatedly until the correct character is selected, then pause briefly
or press the next letter/number from a different key. The unit automatically moves the cursor to the next
placeholder. See page 15 for more information on entering data.
Changing the name:

2. Press the ARROW KEYPAD to the left one time to clear the field.
3. For example if you wished to enter “PRACTICE 1” as a waypoint name. Press the DATA ENTRY key
labeled “P, Q, R, S, 7” one time to enter the letter “P”. (If you are entering a letter/number from the same
key, pause briefly and the unit moves to the next placeholder automatically. Otherwise, press the next
letter/number from a different key.)

Navigating to a Waypoint
GPS is all about marking positions as waypoints and navigating to them using the receiver’s steering
guidance and map displays. We’ve already seen how to use the ENTER/MARK key to store our present
position, so it’s time to move on to the fun part—going to a destination.
The NAV/MOB key is the primary tool used to select a destination Waypoint, TracBack (pg. 45), or a
Route (pg. 49) to navigate. The NAV key can be used in two primary ways:
Going to a Waypoint
• Pressing NAV once displays a list of options from which you can select ‘Go To Point’, ‘Follow Route’,
‘Follow Track’, ‘TracBack’, or ‘Stop Navigation’.
• Highlighting an on-screen waypoint or map item as a destination directly from the Map Page and
pressing NAV allows you to graphically select points to “Go To”.
When you begin navigation to a waypoint, the GPS sets a straight-line course to that point. The unit
draws a Course Line on the display between the current GPS location and the destination waypoint. You
may use the Map, Compass, or Highway Main Pages (or configure any of the other Main Pages) for navigation. For this exercise, let’s use the Compass Page. You may use the “Practice 1” waypoint you created on
the previous page or any other waypoint you have created.
Going to a waypoint:
1. Press the NAV key.
2. Highlight ‘Go To Point’ and press ENTER (or press the DATA ENTRY shortcut number).
3. Highlight ‘Waypoints’ and press ENTER. This displays the ‘Find Waypoints’ window. From this window you
can select waypoints by “Nearest” or “By Name”. Select the ‘Nearest’ tab using the ARROW KEYPAD.
4. Press the ARROW KEYPAD UP or DOWN to scroll through the list until the waypoint you wish to navigate to is highlighted. Press ENTER to display the waypoint Review page.
5. With the ‘Go To’ button highlighted, press ENTER to begin navigation.
Press the PAGE key and select the Compass Page.
24
Using the Compass Page
Located on the Compass Page are the Bearing Pointer, and a Compass Ring. For a GPS to navigate
properly, it has to be moving. When you are moving, the orange Bearing Pointer points toward your
destination, while the Compass Ring reflects the direction that you are traveling with a red vertical line at
the top of the Compass Ring. When you are headed directly toward your destination, the Bearing Pointer
points toward the top of the display, aligned with the red vertical line displayed at the top of the Compass Ring. If you are not heading toward your destination, the Bearing Pointer turns, continuing to point
toward your destination. To head toward your destination, turn until the Bearing Pointer is aligned with
the red vertical line in the Compass Ring.

Along the right side of the display are the default data fields; the top field is the Speed. Also shown are
the distance to your waypoint (DIST NEXT) and estimated time en route (ETE NEXT). The distance and
en route time decreases as you near your destination.
To stop Going To a point:
1. Press the NAV key.
2. Highlight ‘Stop Navigation’ and press ENTER (or press the DATA ENTRY shortcut number).
Steer until the arrow is pointing to the red
vertical line. You are then heading straight
towards the point.
Congratulations! You should now have enough experience to use the basic functions of your GPSMAP
3006C/3010C MFD! For detailed instructions on navigating using the Map, Compass, and Highway

The GPSMAP 3006C/3010C’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 (roads, cities, borders, etc.), navaids, and a host of other chart features. Additional information on
BlueChart data may be found in the “BlueChart User’s Guide”. The unit 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.
When the cursor is active, an additional data window appears in the upper left of the map to indicate
the position, any identifying text, range, and bearing to the cursor or a selected waypoint or map item. The
map range scale displays at the bottom right of the map.
The UP and DOWN RANGE 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 (map data) 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 3006C/3010C system (by default) powers up in the position mode, with your vessel
centered on the map display.

• Whenever the cursor reaches the edge of the display, the map scrolls forward under the cursor. Keep
in mind that the boat icon moves with the map scrolling and may go off the display screen (you may
not be able to see your present position).
• When the cursor is stationary, a fixed coordinate position appears in the position field. Note that the
distance and bearing changes as the boat’s position changes.
• Whenever you change the range in cursor mode, the cursor is centered on screen.
• To return to position mode, press the QUIT key.

Compass Page
The GPSMAP 3006C/3010C features two different navigation pages: Compass and Highway. Whenever
a NAV goto, Follow Track, TracBack, or Follow Route have been activated, the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C’s
Compass Page guides you to your destination with digital readouts and a graphic compass display, which
includes a bearing pointer.
Located on the Compass Page are the Bearing Pointer and a Compass Ring. For a GPS to navigate
properly, it has to be moving. When you are moving, the orange Bearing Pointer points toward your
destination, while the Compass Ring reflects the direction that you are traveling with a red vertical line at
the top of the Compass Ring. When you are headed directly toward your destination, the Bearing Pointer
points toward the top of the display, aligned with the red vertical line displayed at the top of the Compass Ring. If you are not heading toward your destination, the Bearing Pointer turns, continuing to point
toward your destination. To head toward your destination, turn until the Bearing Pointer is aligned with
the red vertical line in the Compass Ring.

Data Fields
Whenever a Go To, TracBack or route has been activated, the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C’s Highway Page
provides digital and graphic steering guidance to the destination with the Navigation Page. The right side
of the Highway Page features configurable Digital Data fields that display useful navigation data. The left
section of the screen 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 red “road” with a yellow line down
the middle, which is your desired track line. You may also view Routes details, nearby waypoints not in
the active route, Track Log points, and Saved Tracks can also be displayed. The highway perspective range
may also be zoomed in or out to display a larger or smaller view of the highway. Five settings are available
from 1X to 16X, with a default setting of 8X.

normal view of the video input.
• Brightness— Affects how bright the overall video input appears on the display (0%-100%).
• Saturation— Adjusts the intensity of the colors. High saturation produces bright colors, low
saturation produces washed out colors.
• Contrast— Adjusts the difference between light and dark areas of the video input. The higher the
Contrast, the brighter the video appears.
• Standard (ADJ key only)— Selects the composite video input Standard. Choose ‘Auto’ to have
the unit automatically select the Standard. Choose ‘NTSC’ for NTSC (National Television System

Creating and Using Waypoints
The MFD stores up to 4000 alphanumeric waypoints with a user-defined icon, comment, depth, and
water temperature available for each waypoint. (If you are using optional Garmin Sonar hardware, the
Depth and Water Temp fields fill in automatically.) Waypoints can be created using three basic methods:
• ENTER/MARK key– used primarily for marking your present position, the ENTER/MARK key
also provides options that allow you to select a map position or map item from the map display.
• Graphically– allows you to define a new waypoint position from the map display using the
ARROW KEYPAD.
• Text Entry– allows you to enter a new waypoint’s coordinates manually (from a chart, etc.).
Marking Your Present Position
Highlight ‘OK’ and press ENTER to use
the default name and symbol.
See page 22 for an introduction to
Waypoints.
Highlight a field and press ENTER to enter
a new symbol, name, comment or depth.
36
The Garmin GPSMAP 3006C/3010C’s ENTER/MARK key lets you quickly capture your present position (or cursor or map item position) in order to create a new waypoint. You must have a valid position fix
to mark your present position. (See page 16.)
To mark your present position:
1. Press and hold the ENTER/MARK key until the waypoint ’Review’ page appears, then release it. You see a
default three-digit name and symbol for the new waypoint.
2. To accept the waypoint with the default name and symbol, press ENTER to confirm the highlighted ‘OK’
prompt.
3. To enter a different name, highlight the name field and press ENTER, then use the ARROW KEYPAD or
DATA ENTRY shortcut keys to enter the new letters/numbers and press ENTER when done. You may use
up to 10 alphanumeric characters for the name.
4. To enter a different symbol, highlight the symbol field to the left of the name and press ENTER, then use
the ARROW KEYPAD and ENTER or DATA ENTRY shortcut keys to select a new symbol.
5. To enter optional comments, depth, or water temp, highlight the appropriate field and press ENTER, then
use the ARROW KEYPAD or DATA ENTRY shortcut keys to enter the data and press ENTER.
6. To manually enter a set of coordinates, highlight the coordinates and press ENTER, then use the ARROW
KEYPAD or DATA ENTRY shortcut keys to enter the new coordinates and press ENTER when done.
7. When done, use the ARROW KEYPAD to highlight the ‘OK’ prompt and press ENTER to save the
waypoint into memory.
Creating Waypoints Graphically
Waypoints may also be quickly created with the Map Page cursor, which allows you to point to any
map position or map feature to create a new waypoint. When you move the cursor over a map item, you
see a highlighted description of that item. The GPSMAP 3006C/3010C uses the map item text shown on
the cartography as the default name and symbol for the new waypoint.
To create a new waypoint on an open map location:
1. Use the ARROW KEYPAD to move the cursor to the desired map position.
2. Press and quickly release the ENTER/MARK key to capture the cursor position (press and hold ENTER/
MARK to mark your present location, not the map cursor’s position).
3. The waypoint ‘Review’ page appears. To accept the waypoint with the default name and symbol, press
ENTER.
4. To change the name, symbol, position, or add a comment, depth, or water temp, highlight the appropriate
field and press ENTER. Make your changes and press ENTER when done. After entering and confirming
your changes, highlight ‘OK’ and press ENTER.

Additional Options For Creating Waypoints
Waypoints may also be created by manually entering position coordinates through the Points tab of
the Main Menu. This method can be useful for creating a waypoint at a specific latitude/longitude position from a chart or other source. Entering coordinates into the MFD while it is set to a datum different
from in which the coordinates were created may result in an incorrect waypoint location. When entering a
waypoint manually, be sure that the MFD is set to the same position format (pg. 70) and map datum (pg.
71) as the paper chart or coordinate’s source.
To create a new waypoint by manually entering location coordinates:
1. Hold ADJ/MENU for two seconds to display the Main Menu. Highlight the ‘Points’ tab. You may also
MARK your current location using the steps on page 36, then proceed to step 3.
2. Highlight the ‘New Waypoint’ button and press ENTER. The waypoint ‘Review’ page appears, with the next
available waypoint number and the receiver’s last know position as the default name and position.
Highlight the position field and
use the ARROW KEYPAD to enter
the desired position coordinates.
3. Use the ARROW KEYPAD to highlight the position field and press ENTER. Use the ARROW KEYPAD or
DATA ENTRY keys to enter the desired position coordinates and press ENTER when finished.
4. To change the name, symbol, or enter comments, depth, or water temp, highlight the appropriate field and
press ENTER. Make your changes and press ENTER when finished.
5. Use the ARROW KEYPAD to highlight ‘OK’ and press ENTER to save the waypoint.
Two additional options are available on the waypoint ‘Review’ page: Add To Route and Move Wpt
(Waypoint).
• Add to Route— Adds the new waypoint to the end of a route.
• Move Wpt— Allows you to move or project the waypoint to a new location on the map display.
To add a new waypoint to a route:
1. Select ‘Add To Route’ button.
2. The ‘Select Route’ screen appears. Highlight the desired route or select ‘New Route’ and press ENTER.

Going to a Destination
Using the NAV key, the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C provides four primary ways to navigate to a destination: Go To Point, Follow Route, Follow Track, and TracBack. Once you are actively navigating, you see a
straight line that always runs from your current location to the destination on the Map Page. The easiest method for selecting a destination is the ‘Go To’ function, which lets you select a destination point,
then quickly sets a direct course from your present position. If you highlight a point on a list or the map
and press NAV, ‘Go To <point name>’ appears in addition to ‘Go To Point’. The ‘Go To’ function can be
accessed from any list of points or graphically from the map display.
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.
3. From the ‘Find From Current Position’ window, highlight ‘Waypoints’ and press ENTER. (You may also

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 select a map item as the ‘Go To’ destination, the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C automatically uses the
name of the map item, but the point is not stored in the waypoint list (see page 37 for creating waypoints
using map items). If you select a new map point (non-map item) as the ‘Go To’ destination, the GPSMAP
3006C/3010C automatically creates or moves a waypoint named ‘MAP’ at the cursor position.
The waypoint or map item name automatically appears when highlighted and NAV is
pressed.

Follow Track and TracBack Navigation
A “track” is an electronic breadcrumb trail recording or history of your path. The track that is currently being recorded is referred to as “Active”. An active Track may be stored in the unit and once stored,
is referred to as “Saved”. Both the ‘Follow Track’ and ‘TracBack’ options navigate in the same way. ‘Follow
Track’ uses stored or “Saved” tracks. ‘TracBack’ uses your current or “Active” track. The TracBack function
allows you to retrace your path using the track log automatically stored in the receiver’s memory, which
eliminates the need to store waypoints along the way. TracBack routes are created by reducing your track
log into a route and activating an inverted route. Once 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.
To clear the track log and define a starting point for a TracBack route:
‘Go To MAP Point’ allows you to navigate to
a spot on the map that is not a waypoint or
map item.

Once a TracBack has been activated, the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C takes the track log currently stored in
memory and divides it into segments called ‘legs’. Up to 300 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:
• Always clear the track log at the point that you want to go back to (dock, etc.).
• The ‘Record Mode’ option on the track log setup page must be set to ‘Fill’ or ‘Wrap’. (see page 61)
• 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 draws 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, 300 waypoints may not mark
your path accurately. The receiver then assigns the 300 waypoints to the most significant points of
your track, and simplifies segments with fewer changes in direction.

Routes
The last way to navigate to a destination is to create a user-defined route. A route is a series of
waypoints or map items which may be navigated from point to point. The Garmin GPSMAP 3006C/3010C
system lets you create and store up to 50 reversible routes (numbered 1-50), with up to 300 points each.
Routes can be created and modified in two ways. The first way is to use the ‘Map’ option from the Route
page, allowing you to see each route on a map with a waypoint list as you create, review, or modify the
route. The second way is to use the ‘Numbers’ option from the Route page, allowing you to see a list of
the route points along with distance and course information as you create, review, or modify the route.
You may also switch back and forth between these to options as you create a route. All of the GPSMAP
3006C/3010C’s route functions are accessed through the ‘Route’ tab on the Main Menu page, the NAV key,
or through the Highway function’s Adjustment Menu.
To create a route graphically from the Route map page:

KEYPAD to highlight the desired waypoint or map item on screen and press ENTER. To create a waypoint
from a map item, see page 37.
4. To add a new waypoint to be used in the route, use the map cursor to select the desired map position and
press ENTER. Highlight ‘OK’ and press ENTER again to confirm the new waypoint. You may also change
the name, symbol and other properties of the new waypoint (see pages 40).
As you add each new waypoint to the route, the list to the left shows the waypoint name. The bottom of
the display shows you the number of available and used points. A yellow/red route line appears on the map
to indicate each completed leg, and a blue dotted line appears to indicate the distance and bearing to the

GPS Tab— the “Info” submenu tab provides a visual reference of satellite acquisition, receiver status, and
accuracy. The status information gives you 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:
• No signal strength bars— the receiver is looking for the satellites indicated.
• White signal strength bars— the receiver has found the satellite(s) and is collecting data.
• Green signal strength bars— the receiver has collected the necessary data and the satellite(s) are
ready for use.
As soon as the GPSMAP 3006C/3010C has collected the necessary data from the best satellites in
view to calculate a fix, the status field indicates “Ready For Navigation” in the Status field. The unit then
updates 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 “Ready For Navigation” in 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 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 3006C/3010C 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 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 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 are numbered 33 or higher when
viewing the sky view on your GPSMAP 3006C/3010C. Initial reception of the WAAS signal may 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 “Ready For Navigation with WAAS” appears in the Status field. 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 3006C/3010C to search for and track the satellites, you may disable the
WAAS feature to improve unit performance if WAAS reception is not available in your area.
Receiver Status and Accuracy
Receiver status is indicated by the Status field. Current accuracy is indicated by the EPE (Estimated
Position Error) field. Accuracy uses many factors, such as the number of received GPS satellites, signal
strength and satellite orientation to calculate position accuracy in feet or meters. The status field shows
one of the following conditions:
• Searching for Satellites – the receiver is looking for any satellites and collecting data from satellites
visible at its last known or initialized position, but has not collected enough data to calculate a fix.
This process can take up to five minutes.
• Ready For Navigation – at least three satellites with good geometry have been acquired and your
position is now being calculated in latitude, longitude and elevation. ‘Ready For Navigation with
WAAS’ appears when you are receiving WAAS satellite corrections in and a ‘D’ shows on the
strength bar of satellites being corrected.

The GPSMAP 3006C/3010C uses GPS technology in
order to find your precise location. GPS stands for Global
Positioning System, a group of 24 satellites, circling the
earth twice a day at an altitude of about 12,000 miles. The
satellites transmit very low power radio signals containing position and time information, allowing anyone with
a GPS receiver to determine their location on the Earth
within 100 meters or better. For more detailed information regarding GPS, Garmin has prepared a booklet titled

recording of your path), define how it is recorded, or save track log data for future use. The Tracks tab also
provides an indicator of the memory used for the active track log and options to clear the track memory.
See page 45 for TracBack information. The Track tab is divided in two submenu tabs: ‘Active’ and ‘Saved’.
Active Submenu Tab— is for the active log (the log currently being recorded). It displays track
memory used and current settings. For the ‘Active’ tab, the following settings are available:
• Record Mode— lets you select one of three track recording options:
Off— No track log is recorded. Note that selecting the ‘Off’ setting prevents you from using the
TracBack feature.
Fill— a track log is recorded until the track memory is full.
Wrap— A track log is continuously recorded, wrapping through the available memory (replacing
the oldest track data with new data).
• Color— lets you choose a color that is used to display the active track log.
• 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 based upon a user-defined variance from your course over
ground or changes in water depth/temp (if equipped). The resolution option is the default setting
and is recommended for the most efficient use of memory and TracBack performance. The distance value (entered in the value field) is the maximum error allowed from the true course before
recording a track point.
• Value— defines the distance or time used to record the track log.
• Save button— allows you to save the current active track log.

What is Digital selective calling (DSC)?

Main Page
Menu:Sequence
DSC Tab
Digital Selective Calling (DSC) uses marine VHF radio and Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies to transmit and receive location information. DSC is used by mariners to assist them in two major
areas: Distress Calls and Position Reporting.
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 position of the caller.
The rescuer may then choose to navigate (Go To) the caller’s position 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 information (such as who they are and the type of vessel) in their database while they are in transit to the caller’s
position.
A non-emergency DSC Position Report allows mariners to exchange and display the positions of one
another. Once a DSC position is received, the mariner may choose to create a waypoint or to show the
received position on an electronic map.
Any time a vessel receives a DSC call, they can store that location and quickly navigate to that position
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.
DSC Tab
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!

How ARE MMSI assignments obtained?
Non-commercial users (e.g. 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/.
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 will 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/mmsi.html.
For more information regarding MMSI’s visit: http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/marcomms/gmdss/
mmsi.htm.
How can Garmin help you with DSC?
To receive Distress Calls or Position Reports, you must have a DSC-equipped chartplotter as well as a
VHF radio with DSC support. During normal, non-emergency Position Report communication, Channel
70 (156.525 MHz) has been set aside as the VHF/DSC digital call channel. For a Distress Call, a mariner
presses the MayDay button on their VHF radio. The call transmits on an emergency channel with the
MMSI number attached to the call (if you have DSC support). Any DSC-equipped mariner (on sea or land)
within range can receive the call.
64
When the Garmin GPSMAP 3006C/3010C is connected to a VHF with DSC support, the GPS unit displays a Call List, Log, and a Directory available to store incoming information received from another user’s
DSC capable VHF/GPS combination. Basic wiring is required for the Garmin unit and VHF radio to send
and receive NMEA data from each other (pg.72 and Installation Guide).

DSC Distress Call
With a Garmin DSC capable chartplotter properly connected to a VHF radio with DSC output, you
may receive any DSC Distress Call within range. A window pops up and a message displays when a
Distress Call is received. To notify you a Distress Call has been received, an alarm sounds (if enabled). The
alarm only sounds on a Distress Call, and it does not sound on a Position Report. Distress Calls are broadcasted to all DSC users in radio range and appear with a blue and white checkered icon.
You also have the ability to input a caller’s name, if it is known. (The caller’s name replaces the MMSI
number as a reference once it is entered.)
DSC Position Report
The Position Report operates similarly to the Distress Call. Remember this type of contact is like a
phone call, but no emergency alarms are set off and the call is specific to the receiver. Position Reports are
not broadcasted to all DSC users and appear with a gold boat icon.
Distress Call Message
DSC Call List
The DSC Call List displays the current calls received. The GPS can manage up to 100 calls. When ‘calls’
are received, they are updated constantly to give the most current information, even if the unit is left unattended. Any entry from the Call List can be selected to show an Entry Review.
DSC Log
When DSC calls are received, they are automatically stored in the Log, with the latest call at the top.
The unit may store up to 100 logs. Once 100 logs are received, the oldest log file is removed when a new
call is received.
The Call List and Log both display information of call Type, Date/Time, Position, and MMSI/Name.
Pressing ADJ/MENU from this list allows you to ‘Sort By (Call) Type’, ‘Sort By Time’, ‘Sort By Name’, ‘Delete’ (only after highlighting a particular call), and ‘Delete All’. Select the desired option and press ENTER.

A simple way to determine your local time offset is
how many hours you are behind or ahead of UTC
(also called ‘Greenwich’ or ‘zulu’ time).
Example: EST (Eastern Standard Time) is 5 hours
behind UTC, so your offset would be -5. Adding one
hour for daylight savings would make EDT (Eastern
Daylight Time) - 4. Subtract an hour for each time
zone as you travel west.
Offsets for Continental U.S. would be:

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
Select ‘Loran TD’, then highlight the
‘Setup’ button and press ENTER.
80
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. You must have the
correct chain number as well as the secondary station identifiers to use this option correctly. These values
varies per coordinate set or geographical location. Failure to enter correct information could result in
inaccuracies for the desired destination. 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, change the secondary stations or offsets in the Setup TD field, the active
waypoint information reflects 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.
To setup Loran TD from the Main Menu:
1. Using the ARROW KEYPAD, highlight the ‘System’ tab, then press RIGHT to highlight the ‘Units’ submenu
tab. Highlight the “Position Format” field and press ENTER.

TD
2. Highlight ‘Loran TD’, press ENTER, then highlight the ‘Setup’ button to the right and press ENTER.
3. To change the settings of any of the five fields, highlight the field, press ENTER, select/enter the desired
setting and press ENTER.
4. When done, press the QUIT key to return to the Main Menu.
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 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.
For more information on Loran TDs, you may download Garmin’s “Loran TD Position Format Handbook” from the Garmin Web site.

Care
Cleaning - 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 left), as permanent damage may
result. User information, such as waypoints, routes, etc. is
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. 72).
Water Immersion -The GPSMAP 3006C/3010C is waterproof to IEC Standard 60529 IPX7. It can withstand immersion
in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. Prolonged submersion
can cause damage to the unit. After submersion, be certain to
remove the data card and dry the compartments before reuse.
To resolve problems that cannot be remedied using this guide,
contact Garmin Customer Support in the U.S.A. at 800-8001020 or Garmin Europe at 44-1794-519944.
