TRACKER 5100/5100i/5500/5500i Installation and Operation Manual
It is the owner's sole responsibility to install and use the instrument in a manner that will not cause
accidents, personal injury or property damage. The user of this product is solely responsible for observing
safe boating practices.
Global Positioning System: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the US government
which is solely responsible for its operation, accuracy and maintenance. The GPS system is subject to
changes which could affect the accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment anywhere in the world
including the TRACKER. Whilst the NAVMAN TRACKER is a precision navigation instrument, it can be
misused or misinterpreted, which can result in its use being unsafe. To reduce the risk of misusing or
misinterpreting the TRACKER, the user must read and understand all aspects of this Installation and
Operation manual. We also suggest that the user practice all operations using the built in simulator
before using the TRACKER at sea.
Electronic Chart: The electronic chart used by the TRACKER is an aid to navigation and is designed to
supplement the use of official government charts not replace them. Only official government charts
supplemented by notices to mariners contain the information required for safe and prudent navigation.
Always supplement the information provided by the TRACKER with other plotting sources such as
observations, depth soundings, radar and hand compass bearings. Should the information not agree
then the discrepancy must be resolved before proceeding any further.
Fuel Computer: Fuel economy can alter drastically depending on the boat loading and sea conditions.
The fuel computer should not be the sole source of information concerning available fuel onboard and
the electronic information should be supplemented by visual or other checks of the fuel load. This is
necessary due to possible operator induced errors such as forgetting to reset the fuel used when filling
the tank, running the engine with the fuel computer not switched on or other operator controlled actions
that may render the device inaccurate. Always ensure that adequate fuel is carried onboard for the intended
trip plus a reserve to allow for unforeseen circumstances.
