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.

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
