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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
