Re: Furuno GP 150 - no Lat/Lon to VHF
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
If your A54 is anything like ours, there is a junction box behind the navnet3D screen at the chart table that distributes the NMEA from the GP-150 to the VHF&SSB. If neither are showing lat/lon, it could be a bad connection in that junction box or at the GPS output (data 1, for me). Or it could be the GP-150 that’s not longer broadcasting NMEA on that output.
Do you see lat/lon on your hydra? If yes, the GP-150 still outputs NMEA to the data3 port (again, according to the setup on Garulfo).
In fact, for us, the navnet3D shows lat/lon thanks to data2 output from the GP-150.
So i think you could just have a bad connection at data1 of the gp-150, or at the junction box that distributes that output to the vhf/SSB.
It doesn’t explain why the radar overlay does not work though. It sounds like something different.
It does not explain the speed issue on autopilot. Do you see SOG in hydra and navnet3D ? Do you see STW in hydra / navnet3D ?

I assume that you do not have GPS SOG but probably have SOW (Boat Speed as reported through the B&G Hydra.
It sounds like the likely cause is the Furuno GP-150 which is no longer made. I did a quick search for a used one and did not find one. I think the best thing for you to do is get a Furuno technician onboard. I do not have a recommendation, but with a search on Google and on Furuno Dealer Search (https://www.furunousa.com/en/company/find_a_dealer) I see there are many.
