GPS160F from Digital Yacht gets older Furuno systems back on track

Press release -

Digital Yacht launch GPS160F for legacy Furuno products

Digital Yacht have introduced a new version of the GPS160 which is a simple replacement for older Furuno plotter and GPS systems.  Devices like the Furuno GP32, Navnet and GPS310/320 utilise a specific format for GPS data and this new sensor emulates that for essential compatibility.  Some of these older GPS sensors have suffered from technical issues with the GPS system roll over changes which can render a chart plotter becoming useless without a working GPS input.  The GPS160F provides an economical and reliable solution to these problems.

In conjunction with Furuno UK, Digital Yacht have developed a special version of their popular GPS160 Smart GNSS Sensor “TriNav” that outputs the older NMEA 0183 sentences and data format that the legacy Furuno systems can read. If a Furuno customer has a problem with their existing Furuno GPS (GP310/GP320/GP32/etc.) they can use the new GPS160F as a simple “drop-in” replacement for their failed positioning sensor.

The new GPS160F has been tested with a wide variety of legacy Furuno products including; the original NavNet MFDs, NavNet VX2,
M1735 Radar, GP7000 and the FCV family of sounders.

Supplied with a 10m cable and user manual with dedicated Furuno interfacing information, the GPS160F will work straight out of
the box and just requires a simple 4 wire connection to the existing Furuno system.  Retailing for £200 + VAT (GBP) the new GPS160F
(Part#ZDIGGPS160F) is available now.  More information from HERE
