Connecting to a Remote GPS Antenna
This device includes an internal GPS antenna. If your mounting location does not provide good GPS reception, you may install a remote GPS antenna with a female BNC connector (not included), and connect it to the device.
NOTE: If you connected this device to a NMEA 2000® with a GPS antenna, you can use that antenna as a GPS source instead of installing a remote GPS antenna (NMEA 2000 Connections).
- Follow the instructions provided with the external GPS antenna to install it on your boat correctly.
- Route the GPS antenna cable to the back of the VHF 115/VHF 215/VHF 215 AIS device, away from sources of electrical interference.
- Connect the GPS antenna cable to the BNC connector on the wiring harness on the VHF 115/VHF 215/VHF 215 AIS device.
