Installing A GPS Chartplotter
Boating World’s Chris Caswell has written a short how-to on installing a GPS Chartplotter. He uses Magellan�s FX324 Map GPS Color Plotter as an example.
“Today, however, navigational accuracy with a GPS/chartplotter combo is available at everyman prices. Even better, these are very easy to install and set up. With the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), GPS accuracy has been greatly enhanced, and the chartplotter shows you the position of your boat on an electronic chart, complete with depths, buoys and all the details of a paper chart. A GPS/chartplotter combination makes for worry-free navigation in all types of weather.”
