33TRACKER950 CHARTPLOTTER Installation and Operation Manual
Sets the period over which the fuel flow is
averaged. Averaging can be set from 1 to 180
Normally engines do not draw fuel from the tank
at a steady rate. They draw fuel at a high rate for a
few seconds until the carburettor bowl or fuel
injection reservoir is full, then draw no fuel for a
few seconds. If the true flow rate were displayed,
it would be too erratic to read.
Usually a value of 10-15 seconds will give a
Simulation mode is a way of becoming familiar with
the TRACKER950 functions. Boat movement and
satellite data are simulated. The real boat does

There are two choices for Mode:
Simulates the boat moving between two
waypoints at a given speed. The other

9-7 Simulation Mode
Starting waypoint: The start waypoint
for the simulation.
Destination waypoint: The end
waypoint for the simulation.
As the boat moves, you can vary Heading to
simulate the boat moving off course.
Simulates the boat moving along a route at a
given speed. When it reaches one end it
retraces the route in the other direction.
Before setting this mode you must enter a

injected engines may require a larger value.
