Overview

HOW GPS WORKS
Your Humminbird uses GPS to determine
your position and display it on a grid.
GPS uses a constellation of satellites that
continually send radio signals to the earth.
The GPS receiver on your boat receives
signals from satellites that are visible to it.
Based on time differences between each
received signal, the GPS receiver
determines its distance to each satellite.
With distances known, the GPS receiver
mathematically triangulates its own
position. With 5 updates per second, the
GPS receiver then calculates its velocity and
bearing.
GPS was originally intended for military use; however, civilians may
also take advantage of its highly accurate position capabilities,
typically within +/– 2.5 to 10 meters, depending on your conditions
and your Humminbird model. This means that 95% of the time, the
GPS receiver will read a location within +/– 2.5 to 10 meters of your
actual position.
Your GPS receiver also uses information from WAAS (the Wide Area
Augmentation System), EGNOS (the European Geostationary
Navigation Overlay Service), and MSAS (the MTSAT Satellite
Augmentation System) satellites if they are available in your area.

Overview
HOW THE HEADING SENSOR WORKS
The magnetic compass is one of the first known instruments for
navigation. It relies on the earth’s magnetic field to align a magnetic
pointer towards North, also known as Magnetic North.
When the Sensor is connected to the
control head, the heading from the internal
compass will be displayed in digital format.
The Heading is the direction the boat is
pointing, where 000° is North, 090° is East,
180° is South, and 270° is West.
Due to wind and waves, the boat is often
traveling in a slightly different direction
than its heading. The direction of travel, or
Course Over Ground, is provided by the GPS
receiver. You can use the compass Heading
with the GPS Course Over Ground and
Bearing to navigate a route.
A compass’ Magnetic North is affected by the local variations in the
earth’s magnetic field around the globe. Nautical charts will often
provide the magnetic declination, or magnetic variation, for a local
area so that you can confirm that Magnetic North matches True North.
If you have trailered the boat to a new location, the compass’
operation may also be affected by a different magnetic zone. The
Humminbird control head compensates for magnetic declination and
also allows you to make additional adjustments from the menu
system. The details of these features are described in this manual.

INSTALLATION OVERVIEW
Use the following instructions to install the Sensor on your boat. In
order to understand the installation requirements, we recommend
that you read the instructions carefully before you start the
installation.
Supplies: In addition to the hardware included with your
accessory kit, you will need a drill and an awl or pencil. Depending
on your installation requirements, you might also need to
purchase extension cables or a stem mount. See Section 1,

Determine the Mounting Location
It is important to consider the following information when determining
the mounting location for the Sensor:
• Interference: Do NOT mount the Sensor close to a VHF antenna
or within the active area of a radar. Do NOT install it near ferrous
metals or near anything that can create a magnetic field.
Hardware and cables that handle large currents, such as
batteries and power cables, are also examples of equipment that
may cause interference.
• Reception: Mount the Sensor in an area that has full exposure to
the sky. The effective area of reception is 5° above the horizon.
• Surface: Whether the Sensor cable will be routed down through
the mounting surface or to the side, or if you’re using a stem
mount, the mounting surface will influence how you install the
sensor. For details, see Section 2, Install the Sensor.
• Cables: Test run the Sensor cable from the chosen mounting
location to the control head to confirm that the cable is long
enough to accommodate the planned route. See Section 3,
Connect the Cable.
NOTE: 10 ft (3 m) extension cables may be purchased
from Humminbird if your planned cable route exceeds
20 ft (6 m). Maximum cable length, including extension
cables, should not exceed 50 ft (16 m). To purchase
extension cables, or other related accessories, visit our
Web site at humminbird.com or call Customer Service
at 1-800-633-1468.
