Operation
Installing the Batteries
RemoteVision uses two “AA” Alkaline batteries located in the rear of the unit.
Most alternative batteries are also suitable though some types may have
magnetic properties that adversely affect compass accuracy. During battery
replacement, individual user settings are stored in non-volatile memory to prevent
loss of data.
It is recommended that the internal fluxgate compass is always re-swung after
battery replacement, to correct for possible magnetic differences between types
of battery. Refer to the Setup section of this user manual for further details.
Battery Replacement:
1. Using a coin, rotate the battery compartment screw ¼ turn anti-clockwise
until the slot aligns with the open padlock symbol, remove the battery cover
and the old batteries.
2. Insert new batteries observing the correct polarity and direction by referring
to the symbols moulded into the battery compartment housing.
3. Check that the battery compartment seal is clean and undamaged.
4. Replace the battery compartment cover and lock into place by rotating the
battery compartment screw ¼ turn clockwise until the slot aligns with the
closed padlock symbol.
Notes on battery life and replacement:
• Use only new or fully recharged batteries
• Do not mix different types of battery.
• Generally, fresh alkaline batteries will have more power and capacity when
compared to rechargeable batteries.
• Significant use of the backlighting and torch will considerably reduce the
battery life.
• It is recommended that the batteries are removed from the RemoteVision if
it is not going to be used for an extended period.

Wireless Port Installation
REMOTEVISION WIRELESS PORT INSTALLATION
Introduction
The RemoteVision Wireless Port connects directly to the Hydra and Hercules
Fastnet databus and provides a wireless link between the B&G system and the
RemoteVision.
Location
Careful consideration must be given to the location of the Wireless Port to ensure
optimum performance. The following guidelines must be adhered to, the
installation should be:
• In a dry, accessible area.
• Away from the potential shielding effects of other electrical and electronic
devices that may reduce the signal strength and consistency of the
wireless communications.
• At least 2m from a Wireless LAN or Bluetooth transceiver.
• Consideration must also be given to the hull construction as carbon-fibre,
alloy or steel hulls will tend to shield the radio signal more than a GRP hull.
Due to the characteristics of wireless communications, a small alteration in
mounting location can make a large difference in signal strength. In general, a
location that is central in the boat, and reasonably high, is favoured.
It is recommended that the signal strength and range of the RemoteVision
system is checked before deciding the final location of the Wireless Port.
Connection
The Wireless Port is connected to the Fastnet databus via the included cable.
Ensure that the connector on the base of the Wireless Port is correctly
connected.
