30 TRACKER 5430/5430i Installation and Operation Manual
13-3 GPS setup
GPS Source
There are three options:
Internal: For the TRACKER 5430i, use the
internal GPS antenna and receiver. For
TRACKER 5430, use the internal GPS receiver
and an external GPS antenna plugged into
the gold connector on the TRACKER.
NMEA: Use an external GPS or DGPS source
connected via NMEA (see section 14).
NavBus: Use an external GPS or DGPS source
connected via NavBus (see section 14).
DGPS Source
Enables or disables the satellite based DGPS
correction (see section 7). The options are None
or WAAS/EGNOS. Do not enable WAAS/EGNOS
outside their coverage areas or the accuracy of
the position might be degraded.
WAAS covers all of the USA and most of Canada.
To use WAAS, the GPS antenna must have a clear
view of the sky towards the equator. EGNOS will
cover most of Western Europe.
Restart GPS
Restarts the internal GPS receiver for servicing
or troubleshooting. The GPS receiver takes up
to three minutes to restart. The satellite display
shows the status of the GPS receiver.
(see section 7).
Static Navigation
The displayed speed and course become erratic
when the boat stops. Turn Static navigation On
to display speed and course as zero when the
boat is stopped.
Speed and Course Filter
Waves and wind cause the boat position, speed
and course to fluctuate slightly. To give stable
readings, the TRACKER calculates these values
by taking several measurements and averaging
A lower value averages measurements over
a shorter period of time. This gives the most
accurate value but has the most fluctuations.
A higher value averages measurements over
a longer period of time. This gives the most
stable value but will ignore some true speed
Set the Speed and Course filters to the lowest
values which give stable readings. The range of
each filter is 1 to 60 seconds or Off (0).

install the optional single or twin engine fuel kit.
