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.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
