BREAK OUT SLOT

You will need to drill a hole in the dash for the power and transducer cables. The smallest hole that will pass one power or transducer plug is one inch. After the hole is drilled, pass the transducer connector up through the hole first, then pass the power cable down through it. After the cables have been routed, fill the hole with a good marine sealing compound. Offset the bracket to cover the hole. Route the power cable through the slot and break out one of the other slots in the bracket for the transducer cable.
IN-DASH MOUNTING The LMS-350A can be installed in the dash with the supplied hardware if the dash is 1/2" thick or less. Determining the dash thickness can be difficult, however, if you remove a gauge from the dash, you can easilly measure the thickness. Try this in an area that's close to the location that you wish to install the unit, since the thickness can vary significantly in some boats. Make certain there is clearance behind the dash for the unit and there is enough room to tighten the bolts on both sides of the unit.

Once you've determined the location for the unit, cut the hole according to the drawing shown above. Measure carefully before cutting! After cutting the dash, place the gasket supplied with the LMS-350A around the unit and place the unit in the hole. Supplied with the LMS-350A are rubber pads, bolts, washers, and cam clamps to attach the LMS-350A to the dash. Peel the adhesive backing off the rubber pads and place one on each side of the LMS-350A in the location where the cam clamp will touch the back side of the dash. Using the hardware supplied with the unit, attach the LMS-350A to the dash. Make certain that the cam clamp on the left side of the unit is pointing down and the cam clamp on the right side of the unit is pointing up before you start tightening the bolts.

POWER CONNECTIONS The LMS-350A works from a twelve-volt battery system. For the best results, attach the power cable directly to the battery. You can attach the power cable to an accessory or power buss, however you may have problems with electrical interference. Therefore, its safer to go ahead and attach the power cable directly to the battery. If the cable is too short, splice #18 gauge wire onto it. The power cable has four wires; red, black, green, and white. Red is the positive lead, black is negative or ground. Make certain to attach the in-line fuse holder to the red lead as close to the power source as possible. For example, if you have to extend the power cable to the battery or power buss, attach one end of the fuse holder directly to the battery or power buss. This will protect both the unit and the power cable in the event of a short. The LMS-350A uses a 3-amp fuse. IMPORTANT! Do not use this product without a 3-amp fuse wired into the power cable! Failure to use a 3-amp fuse will void your warranty. If youre installing an optional speed/temperature sensor, read the speed/ temperature sensor's installation manual for mounting instructions. Route the sensors cable to the LMS-350's power cable and plug it into the connector marked SPEED/TEMP CABLE

Surface Mounting - Without Access If you don't have access to the back side of the mounting surface, use the "cleats" supplied with the LMS-350A. (Note: This is assuming you can "snake" the module's cable to a location that is accessable. A hole will still need to be drilled in the mounting surface for the cable.) Using the gasket as a template, mark and drill the 17 mm (11/16") hole for the cable. Attach the cable to the module and drop the other end of the cable through the gasket and down the hole. Place the module on the gasket. Slide the "cleats" onto each end of the module and (using the cleats as templates) mark four holes for 5 mm (#10) mounting screws. Drill the holes, then replace the cleats on the module and fasten them to the mounting surface with 5 mm (#10) screws. Route the cable to the LMS-350A.

Pole Mount First, thread the pole mounting adapter onto the mounting pole or ratchet base. Align the pole mounting adapter so the module will face the bow of the boat. Install and tighten the set screw into the pole mounting adapter and tighten it securely. This should prevent the GPS module from unscrewing from the pole. Place the gasket onto the pole mounting adapter. Now attach the cable to the GPS module and pass the cable through the gasket, pole mounting adapter, and pole. Set the GPS module on top of the pole mounting adapter and align the four threaded holes in the module with the holes in the pole mounting adapter. Using the four stainless steel 5 mm screws and lock washers supplied with the LMS-350A, attach the pole mounting adapter to the GPS module. This completes the assembly.

KEYBOARD The keyboard has keys arranged in a vertical column on the left plus a horizontal row at the bottom. A ten-key pad and arrow keys on the right side of the screen lets you enter and change data on the screen. The keys in the left column are used for sonar and menu selections. The menu key in the bottom left corner of the keyboard activates the first menu page. The keys along the bottom of the screen are used to switch between the sonar, optional GPS, and windows modes. SONAR - Press this key to switch to the sonar display. GPS - The GPS navigation displays show when you press this key. PLOTTER - Press this key to show the GPS Plotter display. WINDOWS - This key gives you access to the windows mode, which lets you customize displays. SENS - Press this key to adjust the units sonar sensitivity. RANGE - This key lets you adjust the sonar's range. ZOOM - The LMS-350A gives you 2X and 4X zoom capability with this key. AUTO - This turns the automatic feature off and on. WAYPT - Press this key to save and recall waypoints.
WAYPT QUICK SAVE - Pressing this key instantly saves your position. MENU - Press this key to show the menus and gain access to most functions. CLR - This key clears menus and erases entries from the screen. ENT - This key is used to enter numbers and make selections. ARROW KEYS - These keys are used to make menu selections and to move objects on the screen. ON - The ON key turns the LMS-350A on. OFF - Press and HOLD the Off key to turn the LMS-350A off. DISPLAY - General The lights are turned on for approximately ten seconds when the LMS350A is first turned on. Menus appear at the same time. To keep the lights on, press the key adjacent to the Light label. It controls the backlighting used on the display and keyboard. If you dont want the lights on, wait ten seconds and the lights will automatically turn themselves off. The menus will also disappear after ten seconds, or you can turn them off by pressing the CLR key on the left side of the zero (0) key. The Metric label at the top of the screen works the same way. Press the key adjacent to the Metric label to change the depth from feet to meters. This also changes the temperature display to degrees Celsius, speed to knots, and log to kilometers. The Display menu on the right side of the screen let you adjust the displays contrast for the best viewing angle. Pressing the left arrow key decreases the contrast, the right arrow increases it. After setting the contrast for the best viewing angle, press the CLR key to erase the menu or wait approximately ten seconds and it will automatically erase. See the Display Contrast section for more information on this feature. When the LMS-350A is first turned on, the display will appear similar to the one at left. The word AUTOMATIC in

the upper left corner of the display indicates the automatic feature is on. The digital bottom depth also showsin this box. MENUS The LMS-350A uses menus extensively to guide you through the functions and features of the unit. The menu key accesses many of these features, allowing you to customize the unit to your particular needs and water conditions. Although you may have to leave one menu and enter another to reach the desired function, all you have to do is press the key next to the "More" label to select the next menu. To return to the sonar screen, simply press the key next to the "Exit" label or press the CLR key.
HELP An extremely useful feature incorporated into the LMS-350A series is the Help menus. Virtually every feature has a help menu label that, when pressed, gives one or more pages of text describing how to use that feature. For example, pressing the AUTO key brings up a menu letting you switch the unit into or out of the automatic mode. A help label also appears on the screen. Pressing the key adjacent to the help label gives you a description of how automatic works and how it affects different functions. WINDOWS You can change the displays on the LMS-350A by using the windows feature. This lets you customize displays to your own fishing or boating situations. This feature gives you 22 different window screens. The screens available in the windows mode are divided into two or more windows per screen. Each screen of windows is called a group. Group A as shown at right has the digital displays in one window and the sonar chart in the other.
To use the windows feature, first press the WINDOWS key. A screen similar to the one shown at left appears. The menu on the right side of the screen lets you switch between the pages of displays. These are lettered A through V. Group A shows first. Press the down arrow key to move forward through the screens. Press the up arrow key to move backward. For example, pressing the down arrow key once shows the group B screen. To return to the full sonar screen, press the SONAR key.
Every one of the group screens can be modified to some extent. For example, press the MENU key while group A is displayed. Three new labels appear on the display as shown above. Two of these labels are window menus. Pressing the key adjacent to one of the window menu labels gives you a menu with functions that relate only to that window. For example, if you press the key adjacent to the window menu label on the sonar chart window, the screen will clear and you will have a new menu with selections such as ADJUST CHART SPEED and ADJUST GRAYLINE. Other window menus let you change the sonar frequency or turn the Fish ID feature on. To exit from a window menu,

SONAR OPERATION

AUTOMATIC When the LMS-350A is first turned on, the Automatic feature is enabled. This is indicated by the word AUTO at the top of the screen. The Automatic feature adjusts the sensitivity and range so the bottom signal is displayed in the lower half of the screen at all times.
To turn Automatic off, first press the AUTO key. A menu appears at the bottom of the screen above the left and right arrows. Press the left arrow key to switch to the manual mode. The letters Man appear in the upper left corner of the display, indicating the unit is in the manual mode. To turn Automatic on, press the AUTO key again, then press the right arrow key.
Remember, when the LMS-350A is in the automatic mode, you have a limited adjustment range on the Sensitivity control and no control over the Range. Zoom adjusts differently in automatic than manual, also.
SENSITIVITY The sensitivity key on the LMS-350A controls the ability of the unit to pick up echoes. A low sensitivity level excludes much of the bottom information, fish signals, and other target information. High sensitivity levels enables you to see this detail, but it can also clutter the screen with many undesired signals. Typically, the best sensitivity level shows a good solid bottom signal with Grayline and some surface clutter. When the LMS-350A is in the Automatic mode, the sensitivity is automatically adjusted to keep a solid bottom signal displayed, plus a little more. This gives it the capability to show fish and other detail. However, situations occur where it becomes necessary to increase or decrease the sensitivity. This typically happens when you wish to see more detail, so an increase in sensitivity is indicated. The procedure to adjust it is the same whether the unit is in the automatic or manual mode. To adjust the sensitivity, press the SENS key. The sensitivity adjust menu appears on the right side of the screen. The sensitivity menu has left and right arrows, plus a horizontal bar graph. The graph gives a visual indication of the sensitivity level. The number above the arrows also shows the percentage of sensitivity in use. To increase the sensitivity level, press the right arrow key. As you press the key, the menus bar graph will grow wider and the percentage will increase in value. You can also see the difference on the chart record as it scrolls. When the sensitivity is at the desired level, release the key. To decrease the sensitivity level, press the key adjacent to the left arrow. The bar graph and percentage will decrease. When the sensitivity is at the desired level, release the key. When you reach either the maximum or minimum limit, a tone sounds. To turn the menus off, press the CLR key or wait a few seconds and the menus will automatically disappear.

GRAYLINE ON

GRAYLINE OFF
GRAYLINE is adjustable. Since GRAYLINE shows the difference between strong and weak signals, adjusting the sensitivity may require a different GRAYLINE level, also. The level chosen by the LMS-350A at power on is usually adequate for most conditions. Experiment with your unit to find the GRAYLINE setting thats best for you. To adjust GRAYLINE, press the MENU key, then press the key adjacent to the Adjust Chart Grayline label. A screen similar to the one at right appears. Now press the left arrow key to decrease the gray level. Press the right arrow key to increase it. The percentage of GRAYLINE in use changes as the arrow keys are pressed. The bar chart also gives a graphical indication of the GRAYLINE level. You can see the change on the screen (both on the menu and on the chart record) as you press the keys. After youve made the adjustment, press the CLR key to erase the menu. FISH I.D. The Fish I.D. feature identifies targets that meet certain conditions as fish. The micro-computer analyses all echoes and eliminates surface clutter, thermoclines, and other signals that are undesirable. In most instances, remaining targets are fish. The Fish I.D. feature displays symbols on the screen in place of the actual fish echoes. There are four fish symbol sizes: tiny, small, medium, and large. These are used to designate the relative size between targets. In other words, it displays a small fish symbol when it thinks a target is a small fish, a medium fish symbol on a larger target, etc.
outwards from a group of limbs is the hardest object for the Fish I.D. feature to distinguish from fish. You may see Fish I.D. symbols on the screen when actually, there are no fish. Practice with the unit in both the Fish I.D. mode and without to become more familiar with the Fish I.D. feature. To turn the Fish I.D. feature on, press the menu key, then press the key adjacent to the Turn Fish-ID On label. Echoes will continue to scroll across the screen, however, the surface clutter at the top will no longer be displayed. Any targets the micro-computer determines are fish will be displayed as fish symbols. To turn the Fish I.D. feature off again, first press the menu key. Next, press the key adjacent to the Turn Fish I.D. Off label. The menu immediately disappears and the sonar screen returns. Remember, the Fish I.D. feature cant be used when the LMS-350A is in the manual mode. If you turn the Fish I.D. feature on when the LMS-350A is in manual, the micro-computer will turn the automatic feature on. If you turn automatic off when the Fish I.D. feature is on, the Fish I.D. feature will be turned off also.

The micro-computer is sophisticated, but it can be fooled. It cannot distinguish between fish and other suspended objects such as trotlines, turtles, submerged floats, air bubbles, etc. Individual tree limbs extending DISPLAY CONTRAST The units display contrast is adjustable to suit different lighting conditions. To adjust it, first press the menu key. The first menu page appears. Now press the key next to the Adjust Display Contrast label. A screen similar to the one below appears. Now press the key adjacent to the left arrow to decrease the contrast. Press the key adjacent to the right arrow to increase it. The percentage of contrast in use changes as the arrow keys are
ALARMS The LMS-350A has three different types of sonar alarms. The first is the Fish Alarm. It sounds when the Fish I.D. feature determines an echo or group of echoes is a fish. Another alarm is the Zone Alarm which consists of a bar. Any echo that appears inside this bar triggers the alarm. The last alarm is called the Depth Alarm. Only the bottom signal will trigger this alarm. This is useful as an anchor watch, a shallow water alert, or for navigation. To adjust an alarm, first press the MENU key. Now press the key next to the "Adjust Alarms" label. The screen shown below appears. Press the key next to the Set Depth or GPS Alarms to adjust the shallow or deep digital alarms.Press the key next to the "Set Zone Alarm" to adjust the zone alarm. The fish alarm doesn't have an adjustment. It's either on or off. The following section describes each sonar alarm and its limits.
FISH ALARM Use the fish alarm for a distinctive audible alarm when fish or other suspended objects are detected by the Fish I.D. feature. A different tone sounds for each fish symbol size shown on the display. To turn the fish alarm on, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the "Adjust Alarms" label. The screen shown above appears. Now press the key next to the "Turn Fish Alarm On" label. To turn the fish alarm off, repeat the above steps. The label on the Alarms menu now reads "Turn Fish Alarm Off". Press the key next to that label to turn the fish alarm off.
DEPTH ALARMS The depth alarms sound a tone when the bottom signal goes shallower than the shallow alarms setting or deeper than the deep alarms setting. For example, if you set the shallow alarm to ten feet, the alarm will sound a tone if the bottom signal is less than ten feet. It will continue to sound until you mute it or until the bottom goes deeper than 10 feet. The deep alarm works just the opposite. It sounds a warning tone if the bottom depth goes deeper than the alarm's setting. Both depth alarms work only off the digital bottom depth signals. No other targets will trip these alarms. These alarms can be used at the same time or by themselves. To set the depth alarms, first press the MENU key, then press the key next to the "Adjust Alarms" label. The screen on the previous page appears. Now press the key next to the "Set Depth Alarms" label. The screen at the top of this page appears. To adjust the shallow alarm, press the key next to the "Shallow" label. To adjust the deep alarm, press the key next to the "Deep" label. Both alarms adjust identically. We'll use the shallow alarm as an example. Pressing the key next to the "Shallow" label moves the black box from the "OFF" postion to the "Adjust". A new screen appears as shown at right. Use the numbered keypad on the right side of the unit to enter the shallow alarm setting. We used 10 feet in this example. After you've entered the desired alarm depth, press the ENT key. This enters the alarm depth into memory. Now press the key next to the "Exit" label. The shallow alarm is now set. If the bottom goes shallower than 10 feet, the alarm will sound and a warning message appears on the screen at the same time. A label also appears letting you mute the alarm, if desired.

GPS - HOW IT WORKS The Global Positioning System (GPS) is the best approach to navigation that has ever been devised. Conceived by the Department of Defense (DOD) and the United States military, the GPS system is an answer to their needs of 24 hour global positioning, 365 days a year. Basically, the system works by using a constellation of satellites orbiting Earth 11,000 miles in space. There will be 21 satellites in orbit when the system is fully operational. Three more satellites will act as spares, for a total of 24. When all satellites are in place, at least four of them will be in view nearly anywhere on Earth twenty-four hours a day. The GPS receiver requires at least three satellites to give a 2D fix. (A 2D fix is your position in latitude/longitude. A 3D fix is your latitude/longitude plus altitude.) When it locks on to at least four satellites, it displays a 3D fix.

below sea level. You would need to enter the numbers 35, then press the key next to the "Altitude + -" label to change it to -35 feet. Press the key next to the Accept Alt label when youre done.
CHANGE TIME To change the local time (the time at your position), press the arrow keys to move the black box to the "Local Time" field. Now press the key next to the Change Time label. The screen shown below appears. Use the number keys to enter the time. Remember to enter a zero first if the time is less than 10. For example, enter 073000 for 7:30. Press the key next to the "Time AM PM" label to change the time from AM to PMPress the key next to the Accept Time label when youre finished. CHANGE DATE To enter todays date, press the arrow keys to move the black box to the "Local Date" field. Now press the key next to the Change Date label. Use the number keys to enter the date. Press the key next to the Accept Date label when youre finished. The numbers at the top of the screen should be correct. If they arent, press the key next to the label that you need to change. If everything is correct, press the key next to the Exit label. The unit will switch to the position screen and start searching for the satellites currently in view. It should find the satellites and show a position in a few minutes. COLD START When the LMS-350A is turned on for the first time out of the box, it automatically sends a cold start message to the GPS receiver. You also can send a cold start message to the receiver.
If the unit cant lock on to the satellites using the data youve given it, or if it has trouble finding the satellites, perhaps it is using the wrong data. This can happen if youve entered the wrong data by accident. For example, given it east longitude instead of west. Or if youve moved a long distance with the unit turned off. To send a cold start message to the receiver, press the MENU key. Now press the key next to the ChangeGPS Settings label. Finally, press the key next to the GPS COLD Start label. The unit will begin a cold start technique to find the available satellites. It should lock on to them in 15 minutes or less. Remember, when it does, your local time and possibly date display will probably be wrong. Use the method shown previously to set the time and date to their proper local settings. Once this is done, an internal clock will keep the correct time, even when the unit is turned off. The GPS system updates this clock when the unit is locked on to the satellites. POSITION/NAVIGATION DISPLAYS The LMS-350A has a position screen, plotter, steering indicator, and a satellite information screen. These displays were designed to show the most important data. However, you can customize all of them to some extent through the Change Display feature on the first GPS menu screen. (There are other screens that can be customized by using the Windows feature. See the Windows section for more detail.) To customize these screens, see the Customize section. IMPORTANT! If the data shown in digital numbers on any screen on this unit is flashing, then it means that data is invalid. Do not rely on that data if it is flashing. For example, if the position display is flashing, then the unit has lost the satellites and hasnt re-aquired them. The position that is flashing is your last known position, not your present position! Do not navigate with this unit until you have found the reason the unit has lost the satellites! Each of the following screens is available by pressing a key at the bottom of the unit, except for the satellite information screen A detailed description of each screen follows. SATELLITE INFORMATION SCREEN The satellite information screen shows technical data about each satellite in view. To see this display, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the "Satellite Information" label. A screen similar to the one at the top of the next page appears.

When you're finished, press the CLR key to exit.
PLOTTER MENU -PAGE 2 GOTO CURSOR As mentioned previously, t he cursor lines can be used to place an icon or highlight a position. When you use the cursor lines, the position of the cross hairs on the display are shown at the top of the screen. Pressing the key next to the GOTO CURSOR label on the plotter menu causes the LMS-350A to show navigation and steering data to the position shown by the cross hairs. This automatically turns the arrival alarm on, also.
To use this feature, first move the cursor lines to the desired location on the plotter screen. Next, press the MENU key. Now press the key adjacent to the "More" label. Finally, press the key next to the Go To User Cursor label. The unit returns to the plotter screen. A waypoint flag appears on the screen (numbered 0) that was the location of the cursor cross hairs when you pressed the key next to the Go To User Cursor label. The digital displays on all screens will show navigation information to this new location. This includes the position, steering, and plotter displays. Remember, this is a temporary waypoint. It's erased when the unit is turned off or if it's preset. PLOTTER UPDATE The plotter shows your track by drawing a solid line behind your present position. The track is updated once every instantly when the unit is turned on for the first time. However, if youre travelling a long distance, the track line may end prematurely due to the limited number of dots available that plot the track. Using a longer update time To change the update rate, press the MENU key while the unit is in the plotter mode, then press the key next to the "More" label. Now press the key next to the "Plot Update Rate" label. The screen shown at right appears. The available plot update times are Instant, 2, 5, 10, and 20 seconds. Simply press the key next to the desired update time. The LMS-350A immediately returns to the plotter screen using the new time.
GRID LINES The plotter can show latitude/ longitude grid lines by pressing the key next to the Set Grid Off On label on the second plotter menu page. To turn the grid lines off, repeat the previous step.
SELECT UNITS OF MEASURE The LMS-350A can display distance in miles, kilometers, or nautical miles, velocity in miles per hour, kilometers per hour, or knots, bearing in degrees magnetic or true, altitude in feet or meters, and time in 12 hour or 24 hour format.
To change any these, first press the MENU key, then press the key adjacent to the "More" label. Now press the key next to the SELECT UNITS OF MEASURE label. The screen shown at left appears. The black box on each line shows the unit of measure currently in use. In the screen shown below, the units of measure are in statute miles for distance, miles per hour for velocity, degrees magnetic for bearing, altitude in feet, and time is in the 12 hour format (a.m./p.m.) Press the key next to the unit that you wish to change. For example, press the key next to the Distance label twice to switch from miles to kilometers. This moves the black box two times from the MI to the KM. When you have the units of measure set as desired, press the key next to the EXIT label. BACK LIGHT ON/OFF To turn the back lighting on, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the "More" label. Now press the key next to the Backlight On Off label. This moves the black box from OFF to the ON position and turns the lights on. To turn the backlights off, repeat these steps.

GPS MODULE SELF-TEST This feature tests the GPS module and returns a special code. This code is of interest only to the service department. However, the LMS-350A interprets this code and displays a status message. This message is either MODULE HAS PASSED or MODULE HAS FAILED and shows at the bottom of the screen. The current software version number also appears
near the bottom of the screen. Contact the factory customer service department if the module fails the self test. Do not attempt to use this product if it fails the self test. To use the self test feature, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the "More" label. Finally, press the key next to the GPS Module Self Test label. The screen shown at right appears. To exit from this screen, press the key next to the "Exit" label.
GPS SIMULATOR This feature places position and navigation data on all screens, including the plotter. The unit navigates a closed course. It shows bearing and distance to go, course over ground, and other information. A recurring message appears, alerting you that the simulator mode is enabled. Dont navigate when the simulator is on! To turn the simulator on, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the "More" label. Finally, press the key next to the GPS Simulator OFF ON label. The simulator mode starts immediately. To turn the simulator off, either press and hold the OFF key or repeat the above steps.
PCF OFFSET The GPS navigation system relies on complex mathematical calculations to determine your position based on satellite data and other factors. One factor is the Earth's shape. Since the Earth is not a true sphere, variations in the calculations have to be made to accommodate deviations. To make matters more complex, not everyone uses the same data to determine what the deviations are. The size and shape of the ellipsoids that are used to approximate the earth's surface are improved often. This can lead to errors if your navigation device uses one ellipsoid, while your chart uses a different one. The term used for these ellipsoids is "Datum." To reduce the error factor between datum, this unit gives you the capability to move or "offset" the position shown on the display to match the one on the chart. The unit will add this offset to all position displays at all times. For example, suppose you are anchored at a location that is accurately marked on a chart. Your unit shows a longitude position that is.010 degrees less than the one on the chart. Using the Position Correction Factor (PCF) Offset feature, you make the unit read the same as the chart. If you raise anchor and move, the unit will continuously add the change to all position displays. This makes it more closely match the datum used by the chart. For this reason, you should be careful when entering the PCF offset. This offset is saved in memory. It doesn't change when the unit is turned off. However, a Preset does erase the PCF factor. To set the PCF factor, first press the MENU key, then press the key next to the "Change GPS Settings" label. Now press the key next to the "PCF Offset" label. The screen shown at right appears. Now press the key adjacent to the "Change Offset" label to enter the correction factor for your location. The screen shown at the top of the next page appears. Remember, this is the difference between the location shown on the present position display and the position shown on the chart. Use the arrow keys to move the black box to the number that you wish to change in the latitude, then enter the numbers. Press the key next to the "Latitude N S" to change the latitude from north to south, if necessary.

Press the key next to the "Accept Offset" label when you've entered the desired latitude offset. Repeat this procedure to change the longitude. In this example, we have entered 0 degrees,.012 minutes north lattitude and 0 degrees,.068 minutes east longitude as the PCF offset. That is the difference between the present position shown on the unit and our position shown by the chart. In other words, our position shown on the unit is 0.012 minutes north and 0.068 minutes east of the position shown on the chart. After you've entered the desired offset, press the key next to the "PCF Offset OFF ON" label. This turns the PCF correction factor that you entered on. To leave this screen, press the key next to the "Exit" label. This also puts your changes into effect. To turn these changes off, return to this screen and press the key next to the "PCF OFFSET OFF ON" label. Remember, Presetting the unit also erases any PCF offset, thereby turning it off.

INTRODUCTION The GlobalMap 2000 is a high quality, wide screen mapping unit with performance that is second to none in its class. Using menu features and soft-key operation, its easy to use and sets new standards in mapping versatility and performance. The built-in reference map (background map) includes almost the whole world. Over 70% of the maps detail is in the 48 contiguous states, Hawaii, and southern Canada. This unit also has the ability to read highly detailed maps of inland areas available on Lowrance IMS SmartMap cartridges or C-MAP mapping cartridges which cover most coastal areas around the world. (Both cartridges require the optional Lowrance Maplink cartridge reader.) Position information can come from any Loran-C or GPS receiver via the industry-standard NMEA interface or directly from a Lowrance GPS module. DGPS capability is also included. Installing a SAM (Sonar Access Module) and Lowrance transducer, the GlobalMap 2000 turns into a dual purpose unit, including a full-featured sonar with chart displays and digital bottom depth indicators. The sonar can be used by itself or in the split-screen mode with both sonar and mapping information shown side-by-side. MOUNTING - Bracket Mount Install it in any convenient location, provided there is clearance behind the unit when it is tilted for the best viewing angle. Holes in the bracket base allow wood screw or through-bolt mounting. You may need to place a piece of plywood on the back of thin fiberglass panels to secure the mounting hardware. Make certain there is enough room behind the unit to attach the power and interface cables.

Pole Mount First, thread the pole mounting adapter onto the mounting pole or ratchet base. Align the pole mounting adapter so the module will face the bow of the boat. Install and tighten the set screw into the pole mounting adapter and tighten it securely. This should prevent the GPS module from unscrewing from the pole. Place the gasket onto the pole mounting adapter. Now attach the cable to the GPS module and pass the cable through the gasket, pole mounting adapter, and pole. Set the GPS module on top of the pole mounting adapter and align the four threaded holes in the module with the holes in the pole mounting adapter. Using the four stainless steel 5 mm screws and lock washers supplied with the LGC-1, attach the pole mounting adapter to the GPS module. This completes the assembly. If the pole or mast youre using isnt hollow or if the hole in the middle of the pole is too small for the connectors, use the cable mounting adapter supplied with your unit. Thread the cable mounting adapter into the GPS pole mounting adapter. Then thread the pole into the cable mounting adapter. Route the cable down the outside of the pole.

SAM SONAR ACCESS MODULE In order for the GlobalMap 2000 to show sonar data, a sonar access module (SAM) and transducer must be installed. Follow the installation instructions included with the sonar access module. Route the cable from the sonar module to the black connector on the GlobalMap 2000. (Note: The black sonar connector on the GlobalMap 2000 is covered by a black plastic cap. Carefully pry this cap off to gain access to the connector.) Follow the installation instructions included with the transducer and mount it on the boat. Route its cable to the sonar module and plug it into the black connector. The sonar module is now ready for use. LOWRANCE INLAND MAPPING SYSTEM Until recently, people using inland lakes and rivers were left out of the electronic mapping market. Lowrance has addressed this market with our IMS SmartMap series of mapping cartridges that use the MapLink to connect to the GlobalMap 2000. All of the contiguous 48 states are covered by these cartridges, allowing exceptional detail of lakes and rivers. Also, cities, towns, highways, and roads are shown on these maps. To order these cartridges, contact your local dealer or LEI Extras at 1-800324-0045 (USA only). MAPLINK The GlobalMap 2000 has an internal background map that covers almost the whole world. It shows southern Canada, all of the continental United States, and Mexico at a higher resolution than other countries. This map is sufficient for most users, however, Lowrance has an optional cartridge reader called the Maplink that accepts IMS SmartMap and C-MAP cartridges. The SmartMap cartridges were created by Lowrance and have highly detailed maps of the continental United States. The C-MAP cartridges have small coastal area maps built into them that allows you to zoom in and see much more detail than is available on the built-in map. The Maplink also has the C-MAP background map built into it, so you have the option of using it or the Lowrance background map at any time, even if a C-MAP cartridge isnt plugged into the Maplink. To install the Maplink, follow the instructions included with it. It can be mounted on top of the dash, under the dash, or in the dash for a clean, professional look. Once its installed, route the cable included with the Maplink to the small connector on the back of the GlobalMap 2000. If the supplied cable is too short, an extension cable, model MLXT-12 is available that is 12 feet long. After connecting the cable, the Maplink is ready for use. The Maplink receives its power through the connecting cable, simplifying the installation.

pear. Press the MAP key again to view a split-screen map and sonar display as shown below. Pressing the MAP key again returns the unit to the original mapping display. Boxes on the right side of the screen shown at the bottom of this page show your course over ground (COG), or direction youre heading, boat speed (SOG), present time (TOD or Time Of Day), and navigation information if you recall a waypoint. (The screen at right shows navigation data to a recalled waypoint.) All of the boxes on the right side of the screen can be replaced with others. In this manner you can customize the screen to your needs. See the Customization section for a detailed description of the boxes not shown on this screen. The box in the upper right corner of the screen is a combination navigation display. A compass shows your current course over ground at the top of the box. This is the direction youre travelling. Your course over ground (COG) is also shown in digital numbers in the bottom left corner of this box. The course over ground in this example is 210 degrees. When a waypoint is recalled (see the waypoint navigation section), the direction to the waypoint, or bearing, is shown in the bottom right corner of this box (BRG). The arrow that points up always shows in the middle of this box. This arrow points to the bearing of the recalled waypoint on the compass. In this example, the bearing is 197 degrees. If you steer the boat so that the arrow that points up is always in line with your course over ground, then youll always steer the shortest, most direct route to the waypoint.
If you move to the left or right of the optimum course to the waypoint, another arrow appears on the display with the letters WYPT. This arrow points in the direction you should steer the boat to get back on course. In the example shown above, you need to steer the boat to the left to get back on course. The box shown beneath the compass box is a course deviation indicator, or C.D.I. This box has a pointer that moves to the left or right, depending if you are left or right of the optimum course line. The pointer represents the course line. For example, if you are one-half of a mile to the left of the desired course, the pointer will move to the right, and an arrow pointing to the right appears with the word STEER next to it. This means you need to steer to the right to get back on the correct course. The distance from your present position to the course line appears at the bottom of this box. This is called cross track error. In this example, the cross track error is 0.05 miles. Beneath the C.D.I. indicator are the distance to go (DTG), speed over ground (SOG), and time of day (TOD) boxes. CENTER MAP To center the map around your present position (or the cursor), placing it in the middle of the screen, simply press the CENTER key. C-MAP DATA OPTION Buoys and other navigational aids have additional information available when using a C-MAP cartridge. To view this data, move the cursor on top of the desired symbol, as shown below left. Now press the ENT key. The screen shown below right appears. An information box shows on the screen, giving information about the selected symbol. To erase this message box, press the CLR key.

Area Fill label to move the check mark from Water to Land. Now press the CLR key. The unit returns to the map screen with the land filled with gray. Cartridge Switch The mapping unit can use either Lowrance IMS or C-MAP cartridges. If you wish to use the C-MAP cartridge, youll need to purchase the Lowrance Maplink cartridge reader. The mapping unit has a Lowrance map of the world built into it. This is called the background map. C-MAP uses their own background map which is built into the Maplink cartridge reader. Information from a C-MAP cartridge cant be displayed while the Lowrance background map is showing and vice-versa. You must use the C-MAP background with a C-MAP cartridge and the Lowrance background map with the Lowrance inland modules. The default setting is the Lowrance background map and modules. To switch between the Lowrance and C-MAP maps, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the Mapping Setup. label. Now press the key next to the Cartridge OFF Lowrance C-MAP label. A message appears: Press the ENT key to proceed or press the CLR key to quit. If you pressed the ENT key, the CMAP background map should now be displayed. If you have a C-MAP cartridge plugged into the Maplink, a box will appear on the map in the area covered by the cartridge. This area lets you zoom-in much closer than the standard background map, typically allowing much more detail to be shown. (Note: It is normal for zooming in or out with C-MAP to be much slower than with the Lowrance maps.)

C-MAP BACKGROUND MAP 34

LOWRANCE BACKGROUND MAP
To switch back to the Lowrance map, repeat the previous steps. Switching to the Off box in this menu switches all maps off, turning the display into a plotter-only mode. C-MAP Setup There are several options available to you if youre using the CMAP system. C-MAP gives you the capability to turn off or on the map boundaries, navigation aids, coastal features, restricted areas, and depth lines. To change any of these features, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the Mapping Setup. label. Now press the key next to the CMAP Setup. label. The screen shown at right appears. Simply press the key next to the label of the feature you wish to change. When youre finished, press the CLR key to return to the map screen or press the key next to the More label to return to the mapping setup menu. CURSOR The GlobalMap 2000 has moveable cursor lines that let you pinpoint locations on the map, create waypoints, routes, and more. There are two ways to activate the cursor lines. The first is to press the CURSOR key. The second is to simply press any arrow key while the map is displayed. Either way, youll see a screen similar to the one above. When first turned on, the cursor lines intersect your present position on the screen. The latitude/longitude box at the bottom of the screen changes from your present position to the position of the cursor lines on the screen at the same time. The distance and bearing from the cursor lines to your present position show next to the position at the bottom of the screen. To move the cursor lines anywhere on the screen, simply press the arrow keys. You can press two keys at the same

screen. The event marker labels automatically clear from the screen. Press the CURSOR key to erase the cursor lines. To erase all of the event markers from the screen, first move the cursor to the area that has the event markers that you wish to erase. Of course, if the event markers are in the area of your present position, then you dont need to use the cursor. If necessary, zoom in or zoom out until all of the event markers that you want to erase are shown on the display. Remember, using this function will erase all of the event markers that are visible on the screen, so if there are event markers showing that you dont want to erase, use the cursor or zoom function to move them off the screen. Once you have the desired event markers showing that you wish to erase, press the EVENT MARKER key, then press the key next to the DEL ALL IN VIEW label. A message appears, warning you that this will erase all of the event markers that are in view. If you want to erase them, press the ENT key. If not, press the CLR key. If you pressed the ENT key, the unit erases all of the event markers from the screen. NAVIGATION SCREEN The navigation screen shows all data in digital numbers. You can view this screen at any time by pressing the NAV key. The navigation display shows your present position in large numbers at the top of the screen and Speed Over Ground (SOG), Course Over Ground (COG), Distance To Go (DTG) to waypoint, Bearing to waypoint, and velocity made good (VMG) beneath the present position. Your present position shows at the top of the screen in latitude/longitude coordinates. This is shown in degrees, minutes, and thousandths of a
minute. For example, on this page, the present position is 25 degrees, 44.324 minutes latitude and 80 degrees, 08.119 minutes longitude.
Please note that you must recall a waypoint to use the Bearing, Distance To Go, and Velocity Made Good displays. See the Waypoint Navigation section for information on recalling a waypoint.
For example, a waypoint was recalled on the map screen at right. The navigation screen at the top of the page shows all of the navigation data from our present position on the map. Pressing the NAV key at the bottom of the unit while the navigation screen is displayed changes all of the boxes shown at the bottom of the display. Of course, all of these displays can be changed or rearranged by the user in virtually any combination. See the Customize Screens section for more information. STEERING SCREEN The steering screen shows a pictorial view of your boat and course travelled. This is called a Course Deviation Indicator or C.D.I. It also shows Distance To Go (DTG), Course Over Ground (COG), Speed Over Ground (SOG), Bearing to Waypoint (Bearing), Cross Track Error (XTE), and Velocity Made Good (VMG). All of the

digital boxes on this screen are customizable. Press the STEER key to view this screen. Your present position is shown by the arrow. The arrow shows the direction the boat is heading relative to the waypoint. In theory, if you steer the boat with the arrow always pointing towards the waypoint, then you will arrive at the waypoint. The solid line extending from the arrow is your track or path youve taken. To travel directly to a waypoint, try to keep the arrow on the center line. The waypoint is depicted by a circle at the top of the CDI display. As you approach the waypoint, the arrow and the box will move closer together. If you travel past the waypoint, the waypoints box will move to the bottom of the display. Using the digital displays at the bottom of the screen with the graphical display at the top let you accurately steer the boat to a waypoint. The numbers immediately below the C.D.I. are the C.D.I. range in miles. This gives you an idea of how far off course you are. For example, if the arrow is halfway between the course line and the outside left line and the C.D.I. range is 0.5 miles, then your cross track error is to the left 0.25 miles. The C.D.I. range can be changed from.1 miles to 10 miles. Compare the map screen shown at the bottom of the previous page with the steering screen at the top of that page. The picture of the steer screen and the map screen were taken at the same time. You can see the cross track error, track, distance to waypoint, and the direction you need to steer to the waypoint easily. C.D.I. Range To change the C.D.I. range, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the More label. Finally, press the key next to the Steering Range label. The screen shown at the top of the next page appears. Now press the key next to the desired distance. The unit returns to the steering display with the new C.D.I. range.
A faster way to change the C.D.I. range is to simply press the ZOOM IN o ZOOM OUT keys while the steer screen is displayed. Each time you press one of these keys, the C.D.I. range increases or decreases, depending on which key you press. To clear the plot trail on the steering screen, simply press the CLR key. Pressing the STEER key at the bottom of the unit while the steering screen is displayed changes all of the boxes shown at the top of the display. Again, all of these displays can be changed or rearranged in virtually any combination.
CUSTOMIZE SCREENS The digital displays on the mapping, navigation, and steering screens, plus the displays on the sonar screen can be changed as desired. To show how this is done, well use the Navigation screen as an example. To customize the Navigation screen, first make certain it is showing by pressing the NAV key. Next, press the MENU key two times. Now press the key next to the Customize Display label. The unit returns to the Navigation Screen with an arrow pointing to the top left hand corner box as shown below. In this case, the arrow is pointing to the D.T.G. box. The arrow identifies the box as ready for change. To move the arrow to a different box, simply press the arrow keys until its pointing to the desired box. In this example, the distance to go (DTG) is changing to the estimated time of arrival (ETA) display. With the arrow pointing to the DTG box, press the ENT key. The screen shown at the top of the next page appears. Using the arrow keys, move the arrow to the E.T.A. box. (If the digital box you want is not on this screen, press the MENU key until you see it.

sequences to the next waypoint. Navigation information is shown to this waypoint and the process repeats. When you reach the last waypoint in a route, the arrival alarm sounds until you turn it off. There are four steps required to create and follow a route. First, you must create and name the route. Next, select the waypoints used in the route. Then determine the starting waypoint. Next, tell the unit to follow the route. Finally, the unit will ask you if you wish to run the route forward or backward. After these steps are completed, the mapping unit will start showing navigation data to the first waypoint on the route. You can create a route from the list of waypoints or directly from the map. CREATING A ROUTE Name a Route To create a route, first press the WAYPT/ROUTE key. Next, press the key next to the Routes label. The screen shown below appears. This menu lets you create a route, edit an existing route, run a route, erase it, and set the auto-sequencing and arrival radius. To create the route, press the key next to the Create Route label. The screen shown at right appears. This is the name route menu. Press a key next to the label that has the desired letter repeatedly until the first letter in the route name appears. Now press the right arrow key once. Select the next letter in the route name, then press the right arrow key again. Continue in this manner until the route name has been entered. (Note: To enter a space, press the key next to the Z ,. label. The space is the character after the Z.) When the name appears as you wish, press the ENT key. The screen at the top of the next page appears.
Waypoint Selection Youre now ready to place the waypoints into the route, using any of three different methods. You can place waypoints using the cursor on the map, from the list of waypoints, or enter the latitude/longitude of each waypoint from the keyboard. IMPORTANT! You must select waypoints in the order they are to be used in the route. In other words, suppose you want a route that consists of waypoint numbers 1, 3, and 5. However, you wish to travel to 3 first, then 1, and finally 5. In this case, you must select waypoint 3, 1, and 5 in that order when making the route. Add From Map To create a route using the cursor on the map, press the key next to the Add From Map label. A screen similar to the one at right appears. To save the first waypoint location in the route, simply press the arrow keys to move the cursor to the desired location. The latitude/longitude of the cursor shows at the bottom of the screen. When the cursor is at the desired location, press the ENT key. This saves the cursor position as a waypoint. A box appears on the screen with the waypoints number beneath it. Now move the cursor to the next location on the route. As you move the cursor, a line stretches from the first waypoint to the cursor position. When the cursor is at the desired location, press the ENT

press the ENT key to save the waypoint and return to the route edit screen. Remove Waypoint To erase a waypoint from the list of waypoints used in a route, first recall the route by pressing the WAYPT/ROUTE key, then pressing the key next to the Routes label. Use the arrow keys to highlight the route you want to change. Now press the key next to the Edit Route label. The screen shown at right appears. Move the black box to the waypoint you want to erase. Now press the key next to the Remove Waypt label. The waypoint is removed from the list. Press the ENT key to save your changes. Edit Waypoint After a waypoint has been added to a route, any of the elements of that waypoint can be changed. To do this, first press the arrow keys to move the black box to the waypoint that you wish to change. Next, press the key adjacent to the Edit Waypt label on the Edit Route menu shown above. The Edit Waypt screen is identical to both the waypoint entry and the Add from Keys screens. It lets you change the waypoints name, symbol, and location. After making the desired changes, press the ENT key to save them. The unit returns to the Edit Route screen shown above. Note: If an asterisk * appears next to a waypoint in the list of waypoints used in a route, then that waypoint has changed since it was added to a route. For example, if you use waypoint number one in a route and later change the waypoints location, then the GlobalMap 2000 will place an asterisk next to the waypoints number in the route list. This alerts you to any change made to any waypoint used in a route, including name, symbol, and position.
Erase Route To erase a route from the list, first press the WAYPT/ROUTE key, then press the key next to the Routes label. Use the arrow keys to highlight the route you want to remove from the list as shown at right. Now press the key next to the Erase Route label. A warning message appears, telling you this route will be permanently erased from memory. Press the ENT key to erase the route, the CLR key to cancel. A new message appears, asking if you want to erase the waypoints used in the route from the waypoint list. If you press the ENT key, all of the waypoints used in this route will be erased from the waypoint list. If you want to keep the waypoints, simply press the CLR key. The route is erased from the list after the ENT or CLR key is pressed. FOLLOW A ROUTE To follow a route, first press the WAYPT/ROUTE key, then press the key next to the Routes label. The screen shown above appears. Now move the black box to the desired route using the arrow keys, then press the key next to the Run Route label. The screen shown below appears. The list of waypoints used in the route shows on the right side of the screen. The black box surrounds the first waypoint in the list. This means the first waypoint on the list will be the first waypoint used in the route. If you want to travel to a different waypoint in the route first, move the black box to the desired waypoint using the arrow keys. Now press the key next to the Run Forward or Run Reverse labels. To run forward through the route means you travel to the first waypoint in the list first, then all of the others. To run backward through the route means you start at the last waypoint in the list and move backward through the list of waypoints. For example, suppose you have three waypoints in a route and theyre numbered 3, 6, and 2. If you travel forward through the route, the unit will show navigation data to way55

To reduce the error factor between datum, this unit gives you the capability to select the datum used by the unit when displaying the map. You can select a new datum from a list or enter a correction offset based on latitude/ longitude. To change the datum, first press the MENU key three times. Now press the key next to the Datum Translations label. The screen shown below appears. There are two boxes on the left side of the screen. One reads Source Datum, the other is Display Datum. Before changing the Datum, you need to know which datum the navigation receiver supplying position data to the GlobalMap 2000 is using. For example, all Lowrance GPS receivers (including the LGC-1 GPS module) use WGS 84; all Lowrance Loran-C receivers use WGS 72. The display datum box shows the datum currently displayed on the mapping screen by the GlobalMap 2000. If the display datum is different from the source datum, the GlobalMap 2000 translates the source datum to the displayed one. This lets you display a map using any datum on the list on the right side of the screen. To change either the source or displayed datum, first press the key on the right side of the screen next to the desired box that you wish to change. Then press the up or down arrow keys to move highlight the datum you wish to use. For example, to change the source datum from WGS 84 to WGS 72, simply press the key next to the Source Datum label, then press the down arrow key until WGS 72 is highlighted. When the source box shows the correct datum, press the ENT key. This saves the datum displayed in the source box. Once you have the desired datums showing in both the source and the display boxes, press the CLR key. This unit returns to the mapping screen, using the datums you specified. The default for both the source and display datums is WGS 84.
PCF (Position Correction Factor) Another method used to reduce the error factor between datum is called PCF, or Position Correction Factor. This unit gives you the capability to move or offset the position shown on the display to match the one on the chart. The unit will add this offset or PCF to all position displays at all times. Remember, the position error on any radio navigation system is very dynamic and the PCF offset should never be used in an attempt to cancel the error. In general terms this feature should only be used if your map indicates what the possible error is. This feature should always be reset to zero (0) when finished with that chart. For example, suppose you are stopped at a location that is accurately marked on a chart. Your unit shows a longitude position that is.010 degrees less than the one on the chart. Using the Position Correction Factor (PCF) Offset feature, you make the unit read the same as the chart. If you move, the unit will continuously add the change to all position displays. This makes it more closely match the datum used by the chart. For this reason, you should be careful when entering the PCF offset. This offset is saved in memory. It doesnt change when the unit is turned off. However, a Preset does erase the PCF factor. To set the PCF factor, first press the MENU key three times, then press the key next to the Datum Translations label. Finally, press the key next to the PCF label at the bottom of the display. The screen shown at right appears. Now enter the correction for your location. Remember, this is the difference between the location shown on the present position display and the position shown on the chart. In this example, we have entered 0 degrees,.012 minutes north latitude and 0 degrees,.068 minutes east longitude as the PCF offset. That is the difference between the present position shown on the unit and our position shown by the chart. In other words, our position shown on the unit is 0.012 minutes south and 0.068 minutes west of the position shown on the chart. After youve entered the desired offset, press the key next to the PCF Mode ON OFF label. This turns the PCF correction factor that you entered

on. To leave this screen, press the CLR key. This also puts your changes into effect. To turn these changes off, return to this screen and press the key next to the PCF Mode ON OFF label. Remember, presetting the unit also erases any PCF offset, thereby turning it off. POSITION FILTER No matter what kind of radio navigation input youre using with this mapping unit, jitter or small position changes will show on the display even when youre not moving. For example, if the GPS module or antenna is mounted high above the deck, position changes will occur as the boat rolls in the waves. The position filter will average the jitter, showing a smoother position and navigation display. (The jitter affects not only the position, but all other displays including course over ground and speed over ground.) There are three settings: off, low, and high. When the unit is first turned on or is preset, the filter is turned off. To set the filter, press the MENU key three times. The screen shown above appears. Now press the key next to the Filter label until the check mark is on the desired setting. Press the CLR key to exit this screen and put your change into effect.
SIMULATOR The GlobalMap 2000 has a GPS and sonar simulator feature that shows your present position travelling a preset course from Miami, Florida. All navigation and sonar features of the unit operate, also. A recurring message appears alerting you that the simulator mode is enabled. DONT USE THIS UNIT FOR NAVIGATION WHEN THE SIMULATOR IS OPERATING! To turn the simulator on, press the MENU key three times. Now press the key next to the GPS / Sonar Simulator label. The screen clears and the simulator begins operation. To turn the simulator off, either repeat the above steps or turn the unit off.
PRESET The preset feature returns all of the GlobalMaps settings to their original factory settings for both GPS and sonar. This resets the units of measure, speaker volume, display contrast, and more. However, this doesnt erase any event markers, waypoints or routes. To preset the unit, press the MENU key three times. The screen shown above appears. Now press the key next to the Preset Unit to Factory Settings label. A message appears, warning you that this will preset the unit. Press the ENT to preset the unit or the CLR key to exit without presetting. If you press the ENT key, the menu screen disappears and the unit returns to the mapping screen. All features return to their factory settings. SPEED / TEMPERATURE/LOG SELECTION AND CALIBRATION When a sonar module with speed and temperature capabilities (such as the SAM-ST) is connected to the GlobalMap 2000, speed through water, water temperature, and a distance log can be viewed. To display the water speed, temperature, log, or temperature graph, you must use the Customize Display menu. See the Customize Screens section for more information on customizing your display. You can also calibrate the speed sensor thats connected to the sonar module, reset the distance log to zero, and set the temperature graphs range. To do this, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the More label until the screen shown above appears. Now press the key next to the Speed / Temp Sensor, Temp Graph label. The screen at right appears. To calibrate the speed sensor (Speed) press the arrow key next to the (+) to increase the speed displayed in the Speed window or press the key next to the (-) to decrease it.

The SONAR key allows quick changes between sonar screens, each of which can be customized to your needs. AUTOMATIC The automatic feature is enabled when the unit is first turned on. This feature adjusts the sensitivity and range so the bottom signal shows in the bottom half of the display at all times. The word AUTO appears at the top of the screen when the automatic feature is on. Note: You can adjust the sensitivity, and to a lesser extent, the range at any time simply by pressing the arrow keys. The left and right arrow keys control the sensitivity while the up and down arrow keys control the range. When automatic is on, however, the amount of adjustment is limited. To turn automatic off, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the Sonar Controls. label. Now press the key adjacent to the Auto Man. label. This moves the check mark from the Auto box to the Man box. Now press the CLR key. The menus disappear and the full screen sonar shows. The letters MAN at the top of the screen signifies that the unit is in the manual mode. You can now make any changes or adjustments to the sonar as desired. Repeat the above steps to turn automatic on. SENSITIVITY The sensitivity level controls the units ability to detect echoes. Low sensitivity excludes much of the bottom information, fish signals, and other target information. High sensitivity levels let you see this detail, but it can also clutter the screen with many undesired signals. Typically, the best sensitivity level shows a good, solid bottom signal with Grayline and some surface clutter. The unit adjusts the sensitivity when the automatic mode is on, keeping a solid bottom signal displayed, however this may not be the best level for all situations. You can change the sensitivity level at any time by simply pressing the left or right arrow keys. When either key is pressed, a small menu appears in the bottom left corner of the display. This menu shows the sensitivity level
currently in use. Continue pressing the arrow keys until you reach the desired level. If the unit is in the automatic mode, the sensitivity level cant be increased or decreased past a certain point. An easy way to adjust the sensitivity in the manual mode is to first change the range to a depth thats at least twice as deep as the current range. For example, if the range is 0 - 60 feet, change it to 0 - 120 feet. Now increase the sensitivity by pressing the up arrow key until a second bottom signal appears on the screen at twice the depth of the actual depth. This signal is the second echo and is caused by the sound wave travelling from the transducer, striking the bottom, reflecting off the waters surface, and repeating the cycle. Once you see the second echo appear, change the range back to the original scale. The sensitivity level should be close to ideal. If theres too much noise on the screen (random echoes), or if you still cant see enough detail, bump the sensitivity up or down a step. Another way to adjust the sensitivity level is through the menus. Press the MENU key, then press the key adjacent to the Sonar Controls. menu. A screen similar to the one at right appears. Now press the right or left arrow keys to increase or decrease the sensitivity level. The bar graph in the upper left corner of the screen shows the level currently in use. When youre finished with the adjustment, press the CLR key to erase the menus. RANGE The range can only be varied a little when the automatic mode is on. The unit adjusts the range to keep the bottom signal in the lower half of the display at all times. You can change the range to virtually any number between 5 and 5000 feet when the unit is in the manual mode.

To adjust the Grayline level, press the MENU key, then press the key next to the Sonar Controls label. Now press the key adjacent to the More label until the Grayline menu appears as shown at right. Press the key next to the right arrow in the Grayline menu to increase it. Press the key adjacent to the left arrow in the menu to decrease the Grayline level. The box in the menu has a bar graph and percentage indicator, letting you view the amount of Grayline in use. You can also see the change on the chart. When you have it at the desired setting, press the CLR key to erase the menus. CHART SPEED You can adjust the rate that echoes move across the screen. This is called chart speed and normally is set to maximum. If you wish to slow this down, first press the MENU key, then press the key next to the Sonar Controls label. Now press the key adjacent to the More label until the Chart Speed menu appears as shown above. Press the key next to the right arrow in the chart speed menu to increase it. Press the key adjacent to the left arrow in the menu to decrease the speed. The box in the menu has a bar graph and percentage indicator, letting you view the speed level. You can also see the change on the chart. When you have it at the desired setting, press the CLR key to erase the menus. SONAR ALARMS The GlobalMap 2000 has three different types of sonar alarms: Fish, Zone, and Depth. The fish alarm sounds a tone whenever the Fish I.D. feature places a fish symbol on the display. The zone alarm trips when an echo appears between the top and bottom of the zone alarms bar. The depth alarm actually consists of two different alarms; a shallow alarm and a deep alarm. These alarms are triggered only by the bottom signal. To set or adjust a sonar alarm, first press the MENU key, then press the key next to the Sonar Controls label. Now press the key adjacent to the More label until the Sonar Alarms menu appears. Press the key next to that menu. The screen at the top of the next page appears.
Depth Alarms The depth alarms sound a tone when the bottom signal goes shallower than the shallow alarms setting or deeper than the deep alarms setting. For example, if you set the shallow alarm to ten feet, the alarm will sound a tone if the bottom signal is less than ten feet. It will continue to sound until you mute it or when the bottom goes deeper than ten feet. The deep alarm works just the opposite. It sounds a warning tone if the bottom depth goes deeper than the alarms setting. Both depth alarms work only off the digital bottom depth sonar. No other targets will trip these alarms. The shallow and deep alarms can be used individually or together. To turn either alarm on, simply press the key adjacent to the desired alarms label. For example, to turn the shallow alarm on, simply press the key next to the Shallow Depth Alarm ON OFF label. This moves the check box from OFF to ON and turns the alarm on. The default setting for the shallow alarm is 10 feet and 100 feet for the deep alarm. If you need to change the shallow or deep alarms depth, first press the key next to the desired alarm menu at the bottom of the sonar alarm menu. In this example, well change the shallow alarm to five feet, so we press the key next to the Shallow Depth Alarm: 10FT. The number 1 begins flashing. Press the 0 key to change the 1 to 0. Now press the right arrow key once to move to the last zero. It will start flashing. Now press the 5 key. The display should now read 0005, or 5 feet. Finally, press the ENT key. The menu shows Shallow Depth Alarm: 5FT. The alarm will sound if the bottom signal goes shallower than 5 feet. If you make a mistake, or simply dont want to make a change in the depth menu, simply press the CLR key to exit without changing the alarms depth. The deep depth alarm adjusts in exactly the same manner.
