ZOOM NOTE: You should always be prepared and capable of navigating without the GPSMAP 76S. It is designed to compliment other forms of basic navigation, not entirely replace them. Trip Computer: Trip Odometer, Stopped Time, Moving Average Speed, Moving Time, Overall Average Speed, Total Time, Max Speed and Odometer. Celestial Data: Includes Tides, Sun and Moon, and Hunt and Fish times. 6 The Reference Manual will describe the Main Display Pages and their options in detail. The Quick Start Guide described the process of navigating the Main Display Pages and the Option Menus. While the Reference Manual will provide some direction on how to select an item, its main intention is to describe each Main Page and it’s Option Menu in detail. Initializing the GPS Receiver Before the GPSMAP 76S can be used for GPS navigation, the GPS receiver must be initialized. The GPS receiver should only need to be initialized the first time the unit is used, or if it has been stored several months. The GPSMAP 76S stores orbital data for each satellite in an Almanac. The orbital data is supplied in the satellite signals. Each time the unit receives satellite signals, the Almanac is updated. This is how the GPSMAP 76S knows which satellites to search for. If you do not use your GPS for several months, or move the unit several hundred miles between uses, the Almanac can become “cold”, that is to say that the orbital information is no longer valid. If the Almanac is “cold”, your unit may have trouble locking on to satellite signals. If the unit is unable to receive enough satellite signals to determine its location, it will display an options menu. Initializing the GPS Receiver: 1. With fresh batteries installed, take the unit outside where a clear 360° view of the sky can be obtained. 2. Turn the unit on and hold it in front of you with the top of the unit tilted upward. Follow the screen prompts, pressing PAGE to display the GPS Information Page. 3. The initialization process is automatic. It should take the GPSMAP 76S no longer than five minutes to acquire enough satellite signals to become operational. When the unit is able to navigate, it will display either “2D GPS Location” or “3D GPS Location” in the Receiver Status Field. Reference Getting Started Initializing the GPS Receiver Point top of unit toward sky ZOOM When initializing the receiver or trying to receive satellite signals, orient the GPSMAP 76S so the top of the unit points toward the sky. If the unit is held with the top of the unit pointed toward the horizon, satellite reception may be severly degraded. 7 Reference Initializing the GPS Receiver Initialization Options If the GPSMAP 76S is unable to determine its location, an options menu will be displayed. Depending on the situation, select the appropriate option to help the unit acquire satellites. Use With GPS Off — This option will turn the GPS receiver Off. Select this option if you are indoors and can not receive satellite signals, or if you wish to use only the sensors. If this option is selected, it will save battery power and allow the map to redraw faster. New Location — If you have moved the unit to another state, province, or country, and having trouble locking onto satellites, select ‘New Location’. When you select ‘New Location’, another menu will be displayed. This menu contains the options ‘Automatic’ or ‘Use Map’. If ‘Automatic’ is selected, the unit will switch to AutoLocate mode and begin searching for satellites. If ‘Use Map’ is selected, the Pointer on the Map Page can be used to select your approximate location and the unit will continue to acquire satellites normally. ‘Automatic’ may take longer to acquire satellites. Stored w/o Batteries — If you have stored the unit without batteries the date stored in the GPS may be incorrect. To check the date, highlight ‘Stored w/o Batteries’ and verify the date displayed. If the date is incorrect, select ‘Stored w/o Batteries’ to search for satellites. Continue Acquiring — Select this option if you are in an area where the satellite signals are being temporarily blocked. GPS Information Page The GPS Information Page displays your speed, GPS elevation, the estimated accuracy, receiver status, satellite locations, satellite signal strength, the date, time and the GPS receiver’s current location. If you have a Location Format other than the default (hddd° mm.mmm) selected, pressing the ROCKER key in any direction will toggle the current location at the bottom of the page between the two Location Formats. Initialization Options 8 Speed, GPS Elevation and Estimated Accuracy When the GPS is receiving at least three satellite signals, it will provide you with the current GPS Speed, DGPS Status, and the estimated Accuracy of the GPS Location. The GPS must be receiving at least four satellite signals to report GPS Elevation. Current GPS Receiver Status The current status of the GPS receiver will always be displayed. Autolocate — Forces the receiver to search for each satellite individually. Acquiring Satellites — The receiver will begin in this mode each time the unit is turned on. The GPS receiver will remain in this mode until it has acquired at least 3 satellite signals. 2D GPS Location — Indicates that the receiver is only using three satellite signals. When a 2D GPS Location is achieved, the GPS will display your current position but is incapable of providing an altitude reading. 3D GPS Location — Indicates the receiver is currently using at least four satellite signals and is capable of providing your current position and altitude. 2D Differential Location — Indicates the receiver is using DGPS or WAAS differential data on three satellites. 3D Differential Location — Indicates the receiver is using DGPS or WAAS differential data on at least four satellites. Lost Satellite Reception — Indicates that the GPS has lost satellite reception. Simulating GPS — Indicates the GPSMAP 76S is running in Simulator Mode and the GPS receiver is turned off. It is important to remember when you are using the Simulator, the GPSMAP 76S can not be used for actual navigation. Reference Getting Started GPS Information Page Data Fields Receiver Status Satellite Signal Strength Satellite Location Time Date Location GPS Information Page GPS Off — Indicates that the GPS receiver is turned off. 9 Reference GPS Information Page Satellite Location The location of each available satellite is displayed over two location rings. The outer ring represents the horizon, the inner ring represents 45° above the horizon and the center represents directly overhead. When the unit is using a satellite for navigation, the satellite number will become highlighted on the location rings. The unit can be set to display satellite location with North, or your current track toward the top of the display. Satellite Strength Indicator Bars The Satellite Strength Indicator Bars not only show the strength of the signal being received, they also show the status of the signal. The bars will be either shaded with a light grey, or filled with solid black. If the bar is grey, it means that the GPS is receiving a signal from the satellite and is in the process of storing orbital data provided in the GPS signal. When the bar turns solid black, the GPS is using the satellite signal for navigation. A “D” in or above the bar means that differential corrections are being applied to that satellite. Date, Time and Current Location The GPS gets date and time information from the satellites. The satellites are equipped with an atomic clock that is very accurate. Since the GPS clock is derived from timing information sent from the satellite, the GPS clock is also very accurate. When the GPS receiver has achieved a 2D or 3D GPS Location, the current location will be displayed in the selected Location Format. 90° Center dot - 90° above the horizon Inner ring- 45° above the horizon Outer ring the horizon 45 ° Satellite Sky View 10 GPS Information Page Options Menu To activate the Options Menu from the GPS Information Page, press the MENU Key. To select an option, highlight the desired selection then press ENTER. Reference Getting Started GPS Information Page Use With GPS On/Off — This option turn the GPS receiver On of Off. Select this option if you are indoors and can not receive satellite signals, or if you wish to use only the sensors. If this option is selected, it will save battery power and allow the map to redraw faster. Start/Stop Simulator — This option is used to Start or Stop the Simulator. Track Up/North Up — This option determines if the satellites are displayed with the rings oriented with North toward the top of the display or your current track toward the top of the display. New Location — if you have moved the unit to another state, province, or country, and you are having trouble locking onto satellite signals select ‘New Location’. When you select ‘New Location’, an options menu will be displayed. This menu contains the options ‘Automatic’ or ‘Use Map’. If you select ‘Automatic’ the unit will switch to AutoLocate and begin searching for satellites. This method can take up to five minutes for the unit to begin navigation. If you select ‘Use Map’ you can use the Pointer on the Map Page to select your approximate location and the unit will continue to acquire satellites normally using the almanac for satellite reference. Using this method, the unit does not need to reinitalize and should receive satellite signals quickly. If the unit is in the ‘Simulator’ mode, the ‘Use Map’ feature will allow you to move the simulated current location.

Appendix F Getting Started Messages 63 Appendix G Loran TD 64 Loran TD System LORAN C is a radio navigation aid operated and maintained in the United States by the United States Coast Guard. The name LORAN is an acronym for “LOng RAnge Navigation”. The LORAN system covers the entire United States and the U.S. Coastal Confluence Zone. From the perspective of a mariner, the system is used for ocean and coastal navigation. It can be used as a supplemental system for harbor and harbor approach navigation, and it is used for inland navigation by recreational vehicles. LORAN TD Feature The LORAN TD (Time Delay) feature eases the transition from using LORAN to using GPS. The GPSMAP unit automatically converts GPS coordinates to LORAN TDs for those who have a collection of LORAN fixes for favorite fishing spots and other waypoints recorded as TDs. You can display your position as a TD or enter waypoints as TDs. The accuracy to be expected from this conversion is approximately thirty meters. When the unit is placed in the LORAN TD format mode, it simulates the operation of a LORAN receiver. Position coordinates may be displayed as TDs, and all navigation functions may be used as if the unit was actually receiving LORAN signals. Using the LORAN TD Format When creating new waypoints using LORAN TD coordinates, you must set the correct LORAN chain number and secondary stations in the Setup TD field before storing the waypoint. After the waypoint is stored in unit memory, it will always reference the LORAN chain number and secondary stations currently selected in the Setup TD field. If you enter a different LORAN chain number, change the secondary stations or offsets in the Setup TD field, the active waypoint information will reflect those changes. Since the GPSMAP 76S does not rely on the LORAN signal for navigation, it can reference a different GRI chain and/or secondary stations and still navigate to the location stored in memory. The Location Format field is located under the Setup—Location tab in the Main Menu. The ‘LORAN TD Setup’ window contains the fields to select the Loran GRI-Chain Number, Primary and Secondary Stations, and TD Offsets. To setup Loran TD from the Main Menu: 1. Using the ROCKER, highlight the “Location Format” field on the ‘Location Tab” and press ENTER. 2. Highlight ‘Loran TD’, press ENTER. This will display the LORAN TD Setup window. 3. To change the settings of any of the five fields, highlight the field, press ENTER, select/enter the desired setting then press ENTER. 4. When done, press the PAGE Key to return to the Main Menu. Appendix G Getting Started Loran TD If the active GRI Chain, Secondary Stations or Offsets are changed, all waypoints stored in the units memory will update and reference the the new settings when displayed as a LORAN TD. It is important to note that the saved coordinates of the waypoint are not being modified, they are only being displayed in reference to the different GRI Chain, Secondary Stations or Offsets. Remember that the GPS is not relying on the LORAN signal for navigation. The GPSMAP 76S converts the TD coordinate to a LAT/LON coordinate before storing a waypoint to memory. Because of this the unit can navigate to a converted TD coordinate anywhere in the world. 65 Standard Accessories Appendix H Accessories Owner’s Manual Quick Reference Guide Lanyard Provides convenient method for carrying the GPSMAP 76S.
