GPS Wiring

4 posts in this topic

Last year I installed my battery forward and ran 14 gauge wires back for the depth finder and navigation lights. (Separate wires for each) Would it be alright to splice into the nav light wiring and run the splice to a GPS? Could I run them both at the same time or would I get interference and have to run the GPS on it's own batteries while running the nav lights? Thanks

I dont think you would get interference from nav lights. I would put about a 3 amp fuse in for the gps. Manufacturer should have a recommended amp for this application.

Lights shouldn't give you any problems. A trolling motor may, I have had problems in the past with GPS getting some sort of feedback from an electric motor.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
