How GPS and Cartography Work
Your 700 Series™ Chartplotter supports GPS and chartplotting. It uses GPS
to determine your position and display it on a grid. The Global Positioning
System (GPS) is a satellite navigation system designed and maintained by the
U.S. Department of Defense. GPS was originally intended for military use;
however, civilians may also take advantage of its highly accurate position
capabilities, typically within +/- 4.5 meters, depending on conditions. This
means that 95% of the time, the GPS receiver will read a location within 4.5
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.
GPS uses a constellation of over 24 satellites that
continually send radio signals to the earth. Your
present position is determined by receiving signals
from up to 16 satellites and measuring the
distance from the satellites.
All satellites broadcast a uniquely coded signal
once per second at exactly the same time. 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 once per second updates, the GPS receiver
then calculates its velocity and bearing.

Your 700 Series™ supports Navionics® Gold, HotMaps™ and HotMaps™
Premium on MMC or SD card media. You can insert optional-purchase cards
in the (MMC)/SD slot on your control head to access additional detailed
maps. See Using Your 700 Series Control Head: MMC/SD Card for more
information.
NOTE: Your 700 Series™ supports Navionics® Gold, HotMaps™, and HotMaps™
Premium. Your 700 Series™ does not support Navionics® Classic Charts or
Platinum™ Cartography.
Your unit also comes with a built-in UniMap™ with a more detailed map of
North America (Domestic models) or a more detailed map of Europe and
Southeast Asia, including Australia and New Zealand (International models).
Your 700 Series™ uses the GPS Receiver to determine the position of the
boat automatically and uses the zoom level settings on a particular view to
select the best chart to display. See Viewing Cartography for more
information.

Bird’s Eye Views
Bird's Eye Views - The Standard Bird's Eye, Bird's Eye Big Digits, and Bird's Eye No
Readouts Views show a 3-D, perspective view of the track and the chart’s land
contour from a point above and behind the boat (the eye point). As the boat turns,
the eye point moves to follow the boat.
When you press the 4-WAY Cursor key in the Bird’s Eye View, the position of the
eye point will shift. This allows you to move and turn the eye point so that you can
look off to the sides, or even behind the boat. Pressing the RIGHT or LEFT arrow
keys on the 4-WAY Cursor key turns the eye point right or left, while pressing
the UP arrow key moves the eye point forward, and pressing the DOWN arrow
key moves the eye point backward.
Pressing the EXIT key moves the eye point back to its original position behind
and above the boat.
NOTE: Standard Bird's Eye View and Chart View share the same set of nine readouts, seven
of which are adjustable. When you change the readouts displayed on the Bird's Eye View, the
readouts are also changed on the Chart View.

Instrument View allows you to display a digital instrument panel with 8
selectable readouts. This view provides a digital compass at the top of the view,
as well as 8 selectable readouts, and a Cross Track Error (XTE) graphic at the
bottom of the view. The XTE graphic shows the boat's position in relation to the
Off Course Alarm limits, as well as the optimal route (shown as the dotted line
in the middle).
For best results, you should try to keep the boat as close to the dotted line as
possible. If your course exceeds the Off Course Alarm limits, an alarm will
sound, and the boat icon will change position and will turn from black to red to
indicate the alarm state.
NOTE: Bird's Eye Big Digits View, Chart Big Digits View, and Instrument View share the same

(Off, On, Default = Off)
To make a screen snapshot (Screen Snapshot must be activated):
1. Make sure you have installed an optional-purchase MMC/SD card into
the card slot.
2. From any view you want to capture, press the MARK key.
• When you start a screen capture, a message will appear to indicate
that a waypoint has been created at the cursor location on the
screen, and the screen will freeze while the snapshot is being
saved to the MMC/SD.
• A status dialog box will appear that shows the file number assigned
to the screen capture (.PNG) as well as the progress of the save as a
percentage. Screen Snapshot file names start with an “S.”
• A waypoint created by a screen snapshot shares the same file
name and has a screen snapshot icon.

View Orientation
All the Chart Views allow you to choose the orientation of the view. When
North-Up orientation is selected, True North is shown at the top of the display.
In other words, objects located to the north of the boat are drawn above the
boat. When Course-Up orientation is selected, the direction of motion of the
boat is shown at the top of the display. In other words, objects ahead of the boat
are drawn above the boat. In both orientations, the view pans automatically, so
that the boat is always centered on the display.
When the boat is stationary, it is drawn as a circle. When the boat is in motion,
it takes on a boat shape, pointed in the direction of motion (always Up in the

Introduction to Navigation
Use your 700 Series™ Chartplotter to mark waypoints at areas of interest and
to navigate to those waypoints via a savable route. A route represents the
shortest intended distance between waypoints. You can also view and save
tracks, which represent the actual path of the boat.

Introduction to Navigation
Waypoints, Routes, and Tracks
Waypoints are stored positions that allow you to mark areas of interest or
navigation points. Your Chartplotter can store up to 3000 waypoints.

Routes link two or more waypoints together to create a path for navigation and
are used in trip planning. You can link individual waypoints together by using the
GOTO key. A route represents your intended navigation and shows the shortest
path from each waypoint to the next. As you travel a route, staying on the route
line is the most efficient way to get to your destination, although you should
always look out for obstacles not shown on the chart. Your 700 Series™
Chartplotter can store up to 50 routes that can each contain up to 50 waypoints.
Tracks consist of detailed position history and are displayed as a breadcrumb
trail of trackpoints. The Current Track shows the position history since the unit
was powered up (maximum of 20,000 trackpoints displayed). You can clear the
Current Track or save it at any time. Your 700 Series™ Chartplotter can store up
to 50 saved tracks, each containing 20,000 trackpoints. The current track
represents your actual path so far.

Troubleshooting
Before contacting the Humminbird® Customer Resource Center, please read the
following section. Taking the time to review these troubleshooting guidelines
may allow you to solve a performance problem yourself, and therefore avoid
sending your unit back for repair.
Chartplotter Doesn’t Power Up
If your Chartplotter doesn’t power up, use the Installation Guide that also
comes with it for specific confirmation details, making sure that:
• The power cable is properly connected to the Chartplotter control head.
• The power cable is wired correctly, with red to positive battery terminal
and black to negative terminal or ground.
• The fuse is operational.
• The battery voltage of the power connector is at least 10 Volts.
Correct any known problems, including removing corrosion from the battery
terminals or wiring, or actually replacing the battery if necessary.
Troubleshooting
115
Display Problems
There are several main conditions or sources of possible interference that may
cause problems with the quality of the information displayed on the control
head. Look in the following table for some symptoms of display problems and
possible solutions:
Problem
Possible Cause
The control head loses
power at high speeds.
If the power output of your boat’s engine is unregulated,
the control head may be protecting itself using its
over-voltage protection feature. Make sure the input
voltage does not exceed 20 Volts.
116
Troubleshooting
Finding the Cause of Noise
Electrical noise usually affects the display with many black dots at high speeds,
and high sensitivity readings. One or more of the following sources can cause
noise or interference:
Possible Source of Noise
Isolation
Other electronic devices
Turn off any nearby electronic devices to see
if the problem goes away, then turn them on
one at a time to see if the noise re-appears.
The boat’s engine
To determine whether the boat’s engine is the
source of the noise, increase the RPMs while
the boat is in neutral and stationary to see if
the noise increases proportionately; if noise
appears when you rev the engine, the
problem could be the spark plugs, alternator,
or tachometer wiring. Replace the spark plugs
with resistor plugs, install an alternator filter,
or route the control head power and
transducer cables away from the engine
wiring.
Cavitation from the boat’s
propeller
Turbulence created by the propeller can cause
noise; make sure the transducer is mounted
at least 15” (38 cm) from the propeller, and that
the water flows smoothly over the face of the
transducer at all times.

Glossary
GPS & Navigation Terms:
Acquisition Time: The length of time that a GPS receiver typically takes to
determine a position from at least three satellites. Humminbird® GPS receivers
provide very fast acquisition times (under one minute), permitting users to get out
on the water faster.
Alarm, Arrival: The audible alert that sounds when the boat is equal to or less than
the alarm setting (25 feet – 3000 feet) from the location of the destination waypoint.
Alarm, Drift: Drift Alarm is an audible alert that sounds when the boat is equal to
or over the alarm setting (25 feet – 3000 feet) from the location where the alarm
was turned on.
Alarm, Off-Course: Off-Course Alarm is an audible alert that sounds when the
boat’s distance from the intended Track, (Cross Track Error), is equal to or over the
alarm setting (25 feet – 3000 feet). See Track and Cross Track Error.
Altitude: Altitude measures height above sea level. Altitude is a measurement that
can be provided by GPS.
Bearing (BRG): Bearing is the direction to a destination waypoint measured in
degrees from North (i.e. 321°, where 000° is North, 090° East, 180° is South,
270° is West).
Chartplotter: Chartplotter describes a navigation device that shows Present
Position on a Map, along with Tracks, Waypoints, and Routes. All Chartplotters are
also considered Trackplotters. All Humminbird® GPS Combo units are
Chartplotters. See Trackplotter.
Cold Start: Cold Start refers to the procedure that a GPS receiver must perform
when it does not have historical information regarding its current location. This
procedure typically lasts for several minutes, and may be experienced upon first
power up of the receiver, or if the receiver has been moved a great distance.
Course Over Ground (COG): Course Over Ground is the current direction the boat
is traveling measured in degrees from North (i.e. 321°, where 000° is North, 090°
East, 180° is South, 270° is West). When the Course Over Ground is equal to
Bearing, the boat is said to be “On Course” and will arrive at the destination in the
most efficient manner. COG is often confused with Heading. See Heading.
Glossary
121
Cross Track Error (XTE): Cross Track Error is the straight-line distance of the boat
from the intended Track. XTE measures how far the boat is off course, and also
triggers the Off Course Alarm. See Track.
Differential GPS (DGPS): Differential GPS is a system to improve the position
accuracy of the Department of Defense GPS through the use of secondary
“correction signals” broadcast from ground stations around the coastal United
States and on some inland waterways. These correction signals are provided by
the USCG and received by an auxiliary Differential Beacon Receiver (DBR) that
connects to the GPS receiver. The advent of WAAS has largely negated the need
for the added expense of a DBR in the United States.
Distance To Go: Distance To Go is the straight-line distance between Present
Position and the Destination Waypoint. DTG and SOG (Speed Over Ground) are
used to calculate Time To Go. See Time to Go and Speed Over Ground.
Estimated Position Error (EPE): Estimated Position Error is a calculation that
indicates the potential position inaccuracy the user may experience due to a
variety of GPS factors which include satellite position in the sky, signal strength
and others factors.
Fix Type: Fix Type indicates whether the GPS receiver is providing 2D fix or 3D fix. A
2D fix requires only three satellites and provides only latitude and longitude. A 3D fix
requires four or more satellites, and provides latitude, longitude and altitude.
GPS: GPS is an acronym for Global Positioning System. GPS provides accurate
position (latitude, longitude, altitude) information virtually anywhere on the earth
through satellite technology and personal receivers on the ground. A series of
geosynchronous satellites broadcast a unique signal toward the earth once per
second. A GPS receiver, such as that included with many Humminbird® products,
receives the signals from these satellites and is able to determine position based
on very slight differences in the time each signal is received and the receiver’s
knowledge of the location of each of the satellites.
Heading: Heading describes the direction the boat is pointing and is measured in
degrees (i.e. 321°, where 000° is North, 090° East, 180° is South, 270° is West).
Due to wind and waves, the boat is often traveling in a slightly different direction
than it is heading, and therefore Heading is often confused with Course Over
Ground. See Course Over Ground.
122
Glossary
Map Datum: A Map Datum refers to a particular survey of the earth’s surface that
was referenced when creating a chart (i.e. WGS84). Since the earth is not flat, and
not even consistently round, a mathematical model must be used to translate
coordinates from the sphere of the earth to the flat surface of a chart. This
mathematical model is the Map Datum. Historically, many different Map Datums
have been used around the world to create maps; often a reference to the Map
Datum can be found in the legend of a paper map. It is important to select the
correct Map Datum setting in your fishfinder when comparing GPS position to a
paper chart to avoid slight position inaccuracies. Almost all electronic charts use
the WGS84 Map Datum and therefore, they do not require setting changes.
MMC: MMC is an acronym for Multi Media Card. An MMC is a postage stampsized memory device used to store electronic data such a maps, waypoints, routes
and other information. MMC is a very rugged format suitable for the marine
environment, but it is not waterproof. The MMC is removable from Humminbird®
products, and can be used in a PC that is equipped with an appropriate card
reader. MMC is the same format that many digital cameras use. See SD.
North, Magnetic: North is the principle reference point of the compass (i.e. North
is 000°). Magnetic North relies on the earth’s magnetic field to align a metal
pointer generally towards True North. However, due to local variations in the
earth’s magnetic field around the globe, the difference between True North and
Magnetic North can be greater than 10°. See True North.
North, True: North is the principle reference point of the compass (i.e. North is
000°). True North uses the axis of the rotation of the earth as the reference for
North and is constant for all points on the earth. Most GPS units default to True
North as the setting. The GPS heading may vary from the boat compass heading
because the compass uses Magnetic North. Humminbird® GPS units provide the
option of selecting True or Magnetic readouts by using the North Reference menu.
See Magnetic North.
Present Position: Present Position is the current location (latitude, longitude)
determined by GPS. The Present Position is indicated on-screen by a directional
boat icon if the boat is moving, or a round symbol if the boat is stationary.
Route: A Route is series of waypoints linked together in a specific sequence to
define a navigation path between two points, and saved in the fishfinder’s
Glossary
123
memory. Routes are often used when frequently traveling between two or more
locations because it is a faster and more accurate method than repeatedly
selecting individual waypoints each time one travels through the same area.
Routes consist of a Start Waypoint, an End Waypoint, and a series of waypoints
in between. Users can begin navigation at the beginning, the end (to run the route
in reverse) or at any waypoint in between. See Waypoint.
SD: SD is an acronym for Secure Digital. An SD card is virtually identical in
function to an MMC; however, the speed at which information can be accessed is
generally faster, the storage capacity is generally larger, and the card has security
features which can be used to prevent extracting the data from the card. SD is the
same format that many digital cameras use. See MMC.
Selective Availability: Selective Availability (SA) is a GPS system “feature” that
can be implemented by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to degrade the
accuracy of GPS positioning information. With SA active, the GPS is accurate to
within 100 meters 95% of the time. With SA inactive, the GPS is accurate to within
45 meters 95% of the time. Currently, SA is inactive and the consumer can enjoy
the greater precision GPS provides; however, the DoD reserves the right to activate
SA at any time.
Speed Over Ground (SOG): Speed Over Ground is the measurement of the boat’s
progress across a given distance, and is the speed measurement provided by GPS.
An alternate, Speed Through Water, is provided by a speed paddlewheel, and is
the measurement of the flow past the boat, which may vary depending on current
speed and direction. Speed Over Ground is optimal for navigation because
accurate destination times can be derived from this measurement. Humminbird®
products allow for input and display of both speed measurements.
Time To Go (TTG): Time To Go is the estimated time required to reach the destination
waypoint. TTG is calculated using the SOG and DTG. See SOG and DTG.
Track: A Track is a series of saved points that define the past path of the boat.
These Track Points are saved at regular time intervals. Tracks are a useful and quick
method to see where you’ve been, and an easy guide to follow to get you back to
the starting point. Generally, all GPS units have a limited number of Track Points
that can be saved before the unit runs out of memory and begins erasing the first
track points saved. Because of this, the user can adjust the Track Point Interval
124
Glossary
menu to increase the amount of time between when points are saved, and thus
extend the distance covered by a track. Tracks can also be permanently saved to
memory, and re-displayed at the user’s option.
Track Line (TRK): The Track Line is the planned line of travel between two
waypoints, and it represents the most efficient path between the two points
because it is a straight line. The TRK is measured in degrees (i.e. 321°, where 000°
is North, 090° East, 180° is South, 270° is West). See Cross Track Error and
Course Over Ground.
Trackplotter: Trackplotter describes a navigation device that shows Present
Position, along with Track, Waypoint, and Routes, but NO MAP in the background.
See Chartplotter.
Trolling Grid: Trolling Grid is a Humminbird® feature that displays a precise
reference grid around a waypoint. This grid is used as a guide pattern for trolling
around a specific area to assure a more efficient and complete coverage of that
area. Trolling Grid resolution be changed by zooming in or out on the chart. The
Trolling Grid can also be rotated on the display to orient it for optimal boat course
for wave and wind conditions.
UTC: UTC is an acronym for Universal Time Constant. UTC is the “standard time”
used in navigation, and is the local time in Greenwich England. (UTC is equivalent
to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)). To display the correct Local Time in a
Humminbird® GPS unit, the user must use the Local Time Zone menu and select
the time zone (i.e. EST, CST).
WAAS: WAAS is an acronym for Wide Area Augmentation System. WAAS is
complementary technology to GPS that provides enhanced accuracy through
correction signals broadcast from Federal Aviation Administration WAAS satellites
stationed over the USA. These secondary signals are automatically received by the
standard Humminbird® GPS Receiver. With WAAS signal, GPS accuracy is
improved to within 3 meters 95% of the time. Outside the United States, regional
governmental coalitions have created similar systems such as EGNOS (Europe)
and MSAS (Japan).

Waypoint: A Waypoint is the saved location (latitude, longitude) of a point of
interest that is stored in a GPS receiver’s memory. This can include a marker buoy,
dock, fishing hole or anywhere else the user may want to return to. Humminbird®
products offer the ability to name and assign a symbol to the saved location.
Depth, Date and Time of Day when the waypoint was created is also saved.
Waypoint Target: Waypoint Target is a Humminbird® feature that displays a
precise “bull’s eye” around a selected waypoint. This bull’s eye is used to easily
monitor boat position relative to a waypoint, and is useful for fishing over
submerged structure. With Waypoint Targets, a quick look at the screen lets you
know how far off the waypoint the boat has drifted.
