Furuno Gp1870

Postby Briant808 » Mon Dec 25, 2017 12:58 pm

Currently I have a Furuno Gp 1870 and I want to integrate it with a older Navico power pilot Hydraulic ph500 is that possible. I have attached the owners manual diagram of the Nmea0183 connection

I understand that it uses a older interface Nmea0183 and the newer furuno unit uses the can bus network. I need to buy the converter IR-Nmea2k2 converter what else do I need to need to completing the installation. What wiring colors will I need to connect to the Navico junction box

Can bus cabling, does it need a external power supply. Thanks hoping I can get it to work. Merry Xmas

The following link shows some interfacing examples. It is located on the GP1870F product page of our website. It shows the GP1670F (same but smaller than GP1870F). It has some good examples of how you can interface with older NMEA 0183 items.

Sorry, apparently that file had a web site problem.
It has been updated and should show on our website within about 24 hours.

To get the document, go to our website (www.FurunoUSA.com) then search for the product (GP1870F). Once you bring up the product page, you should see the sample drawings under the "Technical info" under interfacing.

You didn't wait the 24 hours. The website is still being populated. It takes 24 hours for any changes to reflect.
