    Definition of Terms

    GPS satellite GPS stands for “Global Positioning System.” One of several

    satellites launched by the US Department of Defense to estab-

    lish a military navigational aid system.

    DGPS The process of correcting the inaccuracies of GPS position data

    from GPS satellites by receiving a beacon receiver (via a bea-

    con station) in a base station whose exact position is known.

    Position fixing The process of deriving the current location of a vessel using

    GPS or DGPS receiver.

    2D (two-dimensional) Position fixing using satellites and height information.

    3D (three-dimensional) Position fixing using satellites information only from four or

    more satellites

    HDOP Indicates the accuracy of position fixing. The smaller the num-

    ber shows the more accurate the position fixing.

    When the satellites are grouped together, HDOP increases and

    position fixing accuracy is poor; when the satellites are far apart,

    HDOP decreases and position fixing accuracy is enhanced.

    Loran C time difference Information for deriving current position by calculating the time

    difference between a master station and secondary station of the

    Loran C system. (Information designed for users experienced

    in the use of the Loran C navigation system)

    TD Time difference. The time difference between a master station

    and secondary station of the Loran C system.

    Route plan A plan that registers a series of waypoints in a navigational path.

    CDI Course Deviation Indicator. Information that indicates the ex-

    tent you have strayed from the route of deviation and the direc-

    tion to steer.

    Arrival alarm An alarm indicating that the vessel has come within the set dis-

    tance of a waypoint.

    Anchor alarm An alarm indicating that the vessel has deviated more than the

    set distance from a waypoint.

    Off-course alarm An alarm indicating that the vessel has deviated more than a set

    distance from a predetermined course.

  • Page 10:

    GPS Navigator J-NAV500

    Automatic sequencing mode Function that automatically steps from one waypoint to the next

    when the arrival perpendicular point has been detected.

    Manual sequencing mode The unit sounds the arrival alarm and the operator will manually

    press key to step to next leg in the route plan when it is safe to

    do so.

    Default value Factory set value

    NMEA0183 National Marine Electrical Association 0183. Association es-

    tablishing international standards for communications between

    navigational equipment and the standard established by NMEA.

    Master reset A function for clearing all settings and returning to the factory

    set values (default values). Two types of master resets are pro-

    vided. A soft reset clears all data except for waypoint and route

    plan data. A hard reset clears all data.

    Initialization It takes up to 20 minutes to GPS position fixing when it is used

    for the first time or after a master reset has been performed.

    This time can be reduced by entering initialization values such

    as estimate position, time and antenna height.

    1. Overview

    1.1 Functions

    Attaching an optional GPS/DGPS receiver (GPS 100 or DGPS 200) makes it possible to turn the GPS

    Navigator J-NAV500 into a GPS/DGPS navigational system. This navigational system uses GPS satel-

    lites to calculate accurate positions anywhere in the world and under any weather conditions 24 hours

    a day. This navigator displays navigational paths to entered waypoints using position data. There are

    the following four navigation displays:

    • POSITION Displays the latitude and longitude of the current position. It also dis-

    plays the bearing and distance to a waypoint, course, speed, etc. and

    the Loran C time difference.

    • NAVIGATION Displays the bearing and distance to a waypoint, deviation and correct

    steering direction to the route, and time to arrival to a destination.

    Selections can be made to display the desired information.

    • CDI Displays a graphic representation of course deviation. It also displays

    correct steering direction, course and speed.

    • PLOT Displays a graphic representation of the route line, the tracked line and

    waypoints. Waypoints are indicated by symbols or alphabetic charac-

    ters.

    There is also a [STATUS] display showing status information such as satellite number, beacon fre-

    quency and receiving level.

    A total of 499 waypoints and 20 route plans can be entered in the navigator. A single press of the

    key can turn any current location into a waypoint. Someone should fall overboard, press the

    key for an instant graphic representation of that position and the route to return to this position.

    and saves fuel.

    The plot display mode displays the symbols registering the route and each waypoint.

    • Menu driven easy operation

    The display menus facilitate operation by showing what to do next. Menu selections and data

    entry are performed with an easy-to-use dial.

    • Customize

    The great number of features provided makes it possible to customize functions and build your

    own navigation system.

    3.2 Cable connections

    The connectors on the rear panel are shown in Figure 2-2.

    When the equipment is used with a “floating” battery, do not touch the ground connec-

    tor on this unit and vessel ground simultaneously. Otherwise, you may suffer from a

    electrical shock.

    WARNING

    When the GPS/DGPS receiver has been installed, route the surplus cable from the

    receiver at a distance of 30 cm or more from this unit to prevent interference from

    occurring in other communication devices.

    CAUTION

    3.2.1 GPS/DGPS receiver connection

    The unit provides with a 12 VDC power supply for a GPS/DGPS receiver (GPS 100 or DGPS 200).

    The GPS/DGPS receiver operates when the unit is turned on, and it displays current position and other

    GPS status informations received from satellite signals.

    Connection procedure:

    Connect the GPS/DGPS receiver cable to the GPS/DGPS connector on the rear panel of the unit.

    3.2.2 Power cable connection

    GPS Navigator J-NAV500

    20

    Figure 3-5 is a power cable wiring diagram. The power cable include the following wires: +12 VDC,

    -12 VDC, DATA COM, DATA OUT+ and DATA IN+. Each wire is labeled.

    Figure 3-5

    Connect the red cable to the plus terminal and the black cable to the negative terminal

    of the 12 VDC power supply. Note that reversing the cables could lead to equipment

    damage.

    Use only a fuse with the designated rating. Use of other fuses could lead to fire or

    breakdown.

    Model ; MF60NR-2A

    Do not connect this unit and the GPS/DGPS receiver to ground when used with a

    “floating” battery. Should they be connected to ground, large current will flow from this

    unit or the GPS/DGPS receiver to ground and could cause fire or equipment break-

    down.

    When the data signal cables are not to be used, insulate the cable ends using

    insulation tape to prevent cable short-circuit. Otherwise, the equipment may be

    damaged.

    CAUTION

    The unit is intended for use on vessels with 12 VDC power systems and can operate as long as the DC

    supply is maintained between 10.8 and 16 volts. The DC power system can be negative ground or can

    be used without a ground connection in a ÔfloatingÓ power supply.

    However, the unit cannot be used on positive ground vessels.

    Power lead connections

    1. Connect the black -12 VDC power cable to the negative pole of the vessel battery.

    2. Connect the red +12 VDC power cable to the positive pole of the vessel battery.

    3. Firmly connect the power cables in the DC PWR/DATA connector on the rear panel of the unit.

    • On a large ship, connect the power cable leads to the DC distribution board. Since a 2 A fuse is

    used in the unit, connect it to a circuit breaker with 3 A or greater capacity.

    • On a small ship, connect the power cables directly to the main battery insulation switch or breaker.

    • Connect the unit to it’s own circuit breaker. Do not connect it to a circuit breaker also used for radar

    and other equipment.

    • To avoid electromagnetic interference, route the wiring of the unit as much as possible away from

    other equipment.

    • The power consumption of the unit is 6 watts when a GPS/DGPS receiver is connected; since line

    loss becomes a problem at lengths of 3 meters or more, thicker cable has to be used. Use #12

    AWG for cable length between 6 to 12 meters.

    Data signal cable connections

    The DATA OUT+, DATA IN+ and DATA COM signal cables can be used to connect to external

    equipment using serial data connections. NMEA0183 sentences are output at all time.

    Data signal cable connections

    • Connect the DATA OUT+ (yellow), DATA IN+ (white) and DATA COM (green) cables to the

    serial port of external equipment.

    3.2.3 Ground connection

    To connect to a beacon receiver with a whip antenna, a ground connection is required to improve

    receiving performance. If the ship’s battery is a connected to negative ground, you can ground the

    equipment using the hull of the vessel. If the ship’s battery is not connected to ground, use an insulating

    DC-DC converter between the battery and the navigator before making a ground connection.

    (Use an NBG-121 insulating converter for a 24 VDC battery.)

    • Connect the E terminal on the back of the unit to the nearest vessel ground. Use #10 AWG or

    thicker cable.

    3.3 EMC INSTALLATION & SERVICE GUIDELlNES

    IMPORTANT NOTE

    All JRC equipment and accessories are designed to the best industry standards for use in the marine

    environment. Their design and manufacture conforms to the appropriate Electromagnetic Compatibil-

    ity (EMC) standards, but good installation is required to ensure that performance is not compromised.

    Although every effort has been taken to ensure that they will perform under all conditions, it is impor-

    tant to understand what factors could affect the operation of the product. Complete installation instruc-

    tions are provided in Section 3 of this manual. Some preliminary suggestions are made below.

    3.3.1 Installation

    To avoid the risk of operating problems, all JRC equipment and cables connected to it should be:

    • At least 1 m (3 feet) from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying radio signals e.g. VHF

    transceivers, cables and antennas. In the case of SSB transceivers, the distance should be in-

    creased 2m (7 ft).

    • More than 2m (7 ft) from the path of a radar beam. A radar beam can normally be assumed to

    spread 30 degrees above and below the radiating element.

    • The equipment should be supplied from a battery other than that used to start the engine. Voltage

    drops below 10.8 V in the power supply to our products can cause the equipment to reset. Al-

    though this will not damage the equipment, it will cause loss of information and could change the

    operating mode.

    • Use JRC designated cables at all times. Cutting and rejoining these cables can compromise EMC

    performance and should therefore be avoided unless specifically suggested in the installation

    manual.

    3.3.2 Check Before Going to Sea

    • Always check the installation before going to sea to make sure that it is not affected by radio

    transmission, engine starting, low battery voltage, or other problems.

    • In some installations, it may not be possible to prevent the equipment from being affected by

    external influences. In general this will not damage the equipment, but it can lead to it resetting, or

    may momentarily result in faulty operation.

    3.3.3 Servicing and Safety

    • JRC equipment should be serviced only by authorized JRC service engineers. They will ensure

    that service procedures and replacement parts used will not affect performance, There are no user

    serviceable parts in any JRC product.

    • The unit generates high voltages, so do not touch the cables or connectors when the power is on.

    • Always report any EMC related problem to your nearest JRC dealer. We will use such information

    to improve our quality standards.

    Tip HDOP level

    A standard for assessing accuracy of position fixing. HDOP is based on the shape formed by the

    positions of satellites and the receiver; a good shape yields a low HDOP level and an accurate

    position fix value. A poor shape produces a high HDOP level and an inaccurate position value.

    2. Setting

    1) Arrival alarm

    The arrival alarm can be set to alert you when

    you are within a specified distance from your

    waypoint. The arrival alarm can be set within a

    range of

    0.00 to 9.99 nm

    .

    • A setting of 0.00 turns off the alarm.

    • This alarm is also valid in direct route naviga-

    tion.

    • When following a route plan, the arrival alarm

    selected in setting up the route plan takes prior-

    ity. (See Section, 4.10 “Navigation according

    to route plans.”)

    2) Anchor alarm

    The anchor alarm is intended to be used to moni-

    tor your ship’s position while at anchor. The alarm

    goes off when the ship drifts beyond the entered

    distance. This distance beyond which the alarm

    will be triggered can be set in a range of

    0.00 to

    9.99 nm

    .

    • A setting of 0.00 turns off the alarm.

    Since the settings of the arrival alarm and

    anchor alarm conflict, you can only set an

    arrival alarm or an anchor alarm, but not both

    together.

    When both alarms are set, the last made

    setting is valid.

    3) Off-course alarm

    This alarm sounds when you stray more than a

    set distance off a set course. A distance in a range

    of

    0.00 to 9.99 nm

    can be set.

    • A setting of 0.00 turns off the alarm.

    4) DGPS alarm

    This alarm sounds once to notify that GPS posi-

    tion fix values will be used instead of DGPS po-

    sition fix values.

    cannot be performed by selecting [Auto] in step (5) when [0.00] is set in [Set Arrival Distance]. To

    make an step, press , like in manual step, to step the waypoint. When a value between 0.01

    to 9.99 is entered, the alarm sounds when the vessel enters within the set arrival alarm zone from

    the waypoint.

    Auto step: Function that automatically steps from one waypoint to the next when the arrival

    perpedicular point has been deleted.

    Manual step: The next waypoint is stepped by pressing . When is pressed as the

    vessel enters the set arrival alarm zone to step to the next waypoint, the alarm is canceled. If

    is not pressed to perform an step when the vessel enters the set arrival alarm zone, the alarm will

    ring until turned off by pressing . (Manual stepping is valid in [ POSITION ], [ NAVIGATION

    ], [ CDI ] display modes.)

    nm of the MOB position. (The alarm can be canceled by pressing .)

    (3) The MOB function can be canceled and the previous display mode can be redisplayed by press-

    ing for 3 seconds.

    Pressing does not store the MOB position in memory. To store the MOB position in memory,

    press and register the MOB position to desired number. (For details, see Section 4.11,

    “Entering current position as a waypoint [EVENT].”

    4.13 Position Display Mode/Position Correction/Geodetic System

    Correction/Magnetic Compass Correction

    Make it a rule to check the geodetic system marine chart and this unit setting before

    going to sea. If both geodetic systems are wrong, the displayed latitude and longitude

    indications will differ from those of the actual position of the ship, which could lead to a

    marine accident.

    The automatically corrected compass value is an approximate value. For this reason,

    manually enter the correct value when you wish to steer the ship on a correct course

    according to corrected magnetic compass values.

    Display example

    This route plan thus consists of harbor AA and the destinations which are the two fishing points (waypoint

    numbers 011 and 012) and harbor BB (waypoint 013). In following a set route plan, the navigator

    switches from one waypoint to another when it comes within a certain distance from the first waypoint

    (automatic stepping of waypoints). In automatic stepping, when the ship comes in the range set for the

    waypoint arrival alarm, the waypoints are stepping.

    • For information on entry operations given below, see Section 4.6, “Basic menu selection

    operations.”

    • For information on how to follow route plans, see Section 4.10, “Navigation according to route

    plans.”

    4.18 Setting Route Plans

    A route consisting of several connected waypoints is called a route plan. For example, say that you go

    from a harbor (waypoint number 010), to a fishing point (waypoint number 011), to another fishing

    point (waypoint number 012) and then return to a different harbor (waypoint number 013).
