787c2i problems

Post by DTG » Mon Sep 17, 2012 11:21 am

My speed is jumping all the time. If I run .07 it will jump to 1.5 down to .02 and everywhere in between. What could it be?

GPS speed

If that is occurring at idle speed or trolling motor speed, that is normal. The satellites are moving so that changes the distance from them to the GPS receiver. A more accurate antenna could lessen the effect, but I don't know if your unit can support a GR-50 antenna.
Your unit has an internal 16 channel GPS antenna.

If you have any radio frequency blocking structures near or above the unit, that could cause some of the speed changes also--it would "see" less satellites.

It won't support the GR-50. I feel your pain. My speed varies from 0 to 1.5 mph sitting in the driveway on my 787 and 797. Pretty annoying when slow trolling or drifting. Just something I learned to live with.
