    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. How to use the GPS navigation function?
      • A : There are several steps to achieve this :

        i. Connect the NMEA output of your GPS navigator (or GPS plotter) to pin 1&2 or pin 5&6 of KAP-866’s 8 pins connector (page 37 of KAP-866 operator’s manual).

        ii. Make sure the NMEA output of your GPS navigator (or GPS plotter) is in 0183 format with 4800 output baud rate of at least one of following message :
        – APA
        – APB
        – BOD + XTE

        iii. Set the waypoint navigation or route navigation in your GPS navigator (or GPS plotter).

        iv. Press [NAV] key on the KAP-866.

    2. Why is the solenoid not working for common negative connection?
      • A : We apologize for the wrong information given in the KAP-866 operator’s manual. Please follow the below diagram for common negative solenoid connection:
