                                      mark the two fixing holes and the center hole.
                                  2   Drill the holes using the drill sizes shown on
                                      the template.
                                  3   Screw the two fixing studs into the underside
                              5       of the receiver unit.
3                                 4   Place the waterproof gasket into position on
                                      the underside of the receiver.
                                  5   Attach the connector securely to the plug in
                                      the base of the unit and pass the cable

                                      mounting studs pass through the holes in the
                                      mounting surface.
                                  7   Secure the receiver to the mounting surface
                                      using the two thumb nuts (these should be
                              7       hand-tight only).

                                          1 Using suitable wire clippers, remove the tinned
                                            ends from the individual cables. Leave the
                                            insulation intact.
                                          2 Place the wires to be joined into the connectors,
                                            ensuring correct polarity and that the wires are
                                            fully pushed home.
                                          3 Using a pair of pliers, crimp the connector bulb
                                            together ensuring that a secure connection has
                                            been made.
                                          4 Ensure the cables are secured in a suitable
                                            position to prevent the joint being placed under

To connect to an E-Series display using SeaTalk....
When connecting your RS125 into an existing SeaTalk network it should be powered from
the network and not the display. The yellow (data) cable should be connected to your C or
E-Series display.
If you are not using a land-based DGPS antenna on your RS125 GPS receiver (most
installations do not), you should connect the brown RTCM input to the shield wire (ground).
This will prevent outside RF energy from inadvertently injecting noise into the system.

If you are connecting your RS 125 GPS receiver to a PC, you will need a Serial Data Cable,
Part No. E86001. Connect the Yellow from the RS 125 to the Yellow of the Serial Data
Cable. Connect the Red from the RS 125 to the positive of your boat's 12 V DC power
supply. Connect the Brown, Green and Shield from the RS 125 and a Black from the Serial
Data Cable to your boat's ground.

SOG/COG filter....

The integral SOG/COG filter fitted to your RS125 compensates for the oscillating motion of
your boat to give a clearer indication of the boat's course and speed.
Slow moving boats, or boats sailing in rough seas will benefit from a high filter setting,
whereas a powerboat that can quickly change speed and direction will benefit from a low
The default setting for your RS125 is MEDIUM.
Adjustment of the SOG/COG filter is made from your system display.
For full details of how to adjust the SOG/COG filter refer to the relevant Manufacturer's

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
