®
Your compatible Garmin wearable device communicates with
the instrument using the Boat Data Garmin Connect IQ™ app. If
this app is not already installed on your wearable device, you
must download the app from the Garmin Connect IQ store. See
the owner's manual for your Garmin wearable device for more
information about Connect IQ apps.
You can connect to a compatible Garmin wearable device, such
as a quatix 5, to view wind information from the instrument.

Configuration Menus
This section provides details for the items in the configuration
menu, organized by menu and sub-menu decimal values.
1.0 DATA Configuration Settings
1.1 Lower data field configuration: Changes the speed type
on the current instrument page.
1.2 Upper data field configuration: Changes the wind direction
or angle type on the current instrument page.
1.3 Wind rose configuration: Changes the function of the wind
rose on the current instrument page.
2.0 FILT Configuration Settings
In the filter configuration menu, you can adjust damping of the
data received from the sensor before it is shown in each data
category (2.1 through 2.9).
The higher you set the update rate (0 through 9) for each data
category, more the data is dampened to remove the more
extreme readings. For example, setting a higher filter for TWS
may provide a more stable wind-speed reading in gusty
conditions.
The glossary defines the data-type abbreviations used in this
menu (Abbreviation Glossary, page 4).
3.0 UNIT Configuration Settings
3.1 WIND: Changes the units of measure used for wind speed.
3.2 BSP: Changes the units of measure used for boat speed.
4.0 SENS Configuration Settings
4.1 WIND: Turns data from the connected wireless wind sensor
on or off. When off, data from the connected wireless wind
sensor is not transmitted over the NMEA 2000 network.
4.2 ANGL: Adjusts the angle of the wind sensor to align with the
front of the boat.
4.3 RSSI: Shows the signal strength between the instrument
and the wireless wind sensor.
4.4 BSP%: Adjusts the calibration of boat speed information
shown on the instrument.
NOTE: This adjustment affects the information as shown on
the marine instrument only. Other devices using speed
information from the NMEA 2000 network must be calibrated
separately, if needed.
5.0 WEAR Configuration Settings
5.1 ENBL: Enables the connection to a compatible Garmin
wearable device.
5.2 CONN: Initiates a connection to a compatible Garmin
wearable device.

locally on the marine instrument.
Setting C07 is a custom-color setting controlled by other
instruments on the NMEA 2000 network.
6.3 BEEP: Tuns the key-press sounds on or off.
6.4 POWR: Allows you to change how the instrument turns on.
The AuT option turns the instrument on automatically when
the NMEA 2000 network turns on.
3
The OFF option keeps the instrument off when the NMEA
2000 network turns on. The instrument must be turned on by
pressing .
6.5 PGES: Sets the number of instrument pages.
6.6 SCRL: Sets and adjusts your instrument screens to scroll
automatically. The value you set (0 through 9) represents the
number of seconds between each screen change.
A setting of 0 turns off scrolling.
