34 TRACKER 5430/5430i Installation and Operation Manual
14 Systems of several instruments
Several NAVMAN instruments can be connected
together to share data. There are two ways of
connecting instruments together, NavBus or
NavBus is a NAVMAN proprietary system that
allows systems of multiple instruments to be
built using a single set of transducers. When
instruments are connected by NavBus:
If the units, alarms or calibration are changed
in one instrument, then the values will
automatically change in all other instruments
of the same type.
Each instrument can be assigned to a
group of instruments (see section 13-9). If
the backlight is changed in an instrument
in group 1, 2, 3 or 4 then the backlight
will automatically change in the other
instruments in the same group.
If the backlight is changed in an instrument
in group 0 then no other instruments are
If an alarm sounds, mute it by clearing the

NavBus and the TRACKER
The TRACKER can:
Display depth data from an optional depth
instrument, such as a NAVMAN Depth 3100.
Receive data from an optional GPS or DGPS
Send data to optional NAVMAN instruments,
for example to a repeater.
NMEA is an industry standard, but is not as
flexible as NavBus as it requires dedicated
connections between instruments. The
Receive and display depth data.
Receive data from a GPS antenna.
Send GPS position and other navigation data
to an autopilot or other instrument.
Note: To use the NMEA 1 input, a NAVMAN
special fuel cable is required (see section 15-3).
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 enter at least one
route (see section 10-2-1). The options are:
Speed: The simulated boat speed to use.
Route: The route to follow.
To turn simulate mode on from this menu:
1 If turning Normal mode on, go to the chart
display. To start the simulation from the boat
position, press ESC to switch to centre on
boat mode. To start the simulation from a
different point, move the cursor to that point
on the chart.
2 In the Simulate setup menu, select Simulate
and turn it on.
3 Select Mode and set it to Normal or Demo.
4 Select and enter the other data required for
Normal requires Speed and Heading.
Demo requires Speed and Route.
