TRACKER 5100/5100i/5500/5500i Installation and Operation Manual
NAVMAN
2-7 Navigating
The TRACKER has two ways of navigating, going
straight to a point or following a route.
Enter waypoints at points of interest before starting
to navigate (see section 9-2-1).
Tip: create a waypoint at the start of the trip to
navigate back to.
Goto: Going straight to a point
The TRACKER can navigate straight to a waypoint
or to any arbitrary point:
1 In the chart display, move the cursor to the
destination point to navigate to (see section 3-1-1).
2 Start navigating using the Goto function from
the chart menu (see section 3-3).
The chart, data and highway displays show
navigation data. The chart shows:
The boat position .
The destination point marked with a circle.
The boat’s plotted course to the
destination.
Two CDI lines, parallel to the boat’s plotted
course (see appendix C, CDI).
If the TRACKER is connected to an autopilot,
the TRACKER will send data to the autopilot to
steer the boat to the destination.
If the XTE alarm is enabled, an alarm will
sound if the boat deviates too much from its
intended course (to set the XTE alarm, see
section 13-6).
3 If the arrival radius alarm is enabled, then,
when the boat comes within the arrival radius
of the destination, an alarm will sound to show
that the boat has reached the destination (to
set the arrival radius alarm, see section 13-6).
4 To stop the Goto, (see section 3-3).
Following a route
A route is a list of waypoints that the boat can follow
(see section 10).
1 To create waypoints before creating the route,
use the waypoints display (see section 9-2-1).
2 To create a route, go to the chart or routes
display (see section 10-2-1).
3 To start the route, see section (10-3-1).
The chart, data and highway displays show
navigation data. The chart shows:
The boat position .
The waypoint at the end of the current leg
marked with a circle.
The boat’s plotted course along the leg.
Two CDI lines, parallel to the boat’s plotted
course (see appendix C, CDI).
If the TRACKER is connected to an autopilot,
the TRACKER will send data to the autopilot to
steer the boat to the destination.
If the XTE alarm is enabled, an alarm will
sound if the boat deviates too much from its
intended course (see section 13-6).
If the arrival radius alarm is enabled, then,
when the boat comes within the arrival radius
of the waypoint at the end of the current leg, an
alarm will sound (to set the arrival radius
alarm, see section 13-6).
4 The TRACKER stops navigating to the
waypoint at the end of the current leg and
starts the next leg of the route:
a When the boat comes within 0.025 nm of
the waypoint.
b Or when the boat passes the waypoint.
c Or if the waypoint is skipped (see section
10-3-2).
5 When the boat has reached the final waypoint,
or to stop the boat following the route at any
time, cancel the route (see section 10-3-3).
