Radar FAR-2117 + GP-170

Postby Ondrei2000 » Fri Dec 29, 2017 10:08 pm

Good Morning

We have a problem with a set of Radar FAR-2117 and GPS GP-170.
The problem is in GoTo function in GPS. When I'm trying to set GoTo waypoint or GoTo MOB, my route line appears only on lcd screen of gps, but not appear on the Radar screen.
Almost same happen with GoTo Route. It showing me only route from Waypoint no.1 to Waypoint no.2 , but not showing route line from vessel's current position to first waypoint in my route. But if you will do "Skip waypoint" in the radar, it will jump to second waypoing and show route line from vessel position to second waypoint ...
Waiting for ideas , as I already read through both gps and radar manual, but found nothing.

Good afternoon Ondrei2000,

Thank you for your inquiry. Please see the information below to verify the radar is looking for the correct data from the GPS Navigator. Please confirm the radar has the following settings. Please Verify how the GP 170 is communicating with the radar, is it via ethernet or Serial Data like NMEA0183? What is the software version of the FAR2117?
