10 TRACKER 5430/5430i Installation and Operation Manual
2-6 Simulate mode
Simulate mode allows a user to become familiar
with the TRACKER off the water. In Simulate
mode, the data from the GPS receiver and
other sensors is ignored and the TRACKER
generates this data internally to simulate the
movement of the boat. Otherwise, the TRACKER
functions normally.
To see if the TRACKER is in Simulate mode, press
DISP and select Satellite. If it is in Simulate
mode, then it shows Simulate at the top left of
the display.
To start and stop Simulate mode, (see section 13-1).
Warning: Never have Simulate mode on
when the TRACKER is navigating on the water.

it displays a warning message on the display, the
internal beeper sounds and any external beepers
or lights operate.

alarm for loss of GPS fix (see section 13-7)
