It is possible to interface your Geosat 4x4 / 4x4Wild to applications such as Ozi Explorer the transfer of data (tracks and waypoints) to Ozi from Geosat and viceversa. Besides, if GPS signal is good, it’s possible to navigate using Ozi, that has the maps loaded inside and Geosat 5 as GPS receiver.
To connect the Geosat to the PC and interface it with Ozi, you must use the Navigator Interface Cable-PC and if it is necessary also the USB-Serial adapter. Both accessories are available in our shop.

Exporting and Importing to and from Ozi Explorer
1). IMPORTANT: In order for the data to be correctly transferred from Geosat to Ozi it is necessary to save first the waypoints that the tracks into File Manager page of your navigator (Menu - Page 3 - File Manager).
2) Disable the function 4x4
3) Select the NMEA 4800 (located at: main menu - settings - user preferences - Page 2: Interface - NMEA 4800)
 
How to connect Geosat 5 to OZI Explorer
1. if PC has a serial port, connect directly Geosat 5 to PC, using the serial cable;
2. if PC hasn’t a serial port, you can use the serial cable together with the Serial-USB adapter, but before using it you must download and install the adapter drivers into your PC (you can buy the adapter on our web site and you can download the drivers from the Geosat 4x4 web FAQ page). The serial cable must be plugged in the port marked as “TMC”, in the back side of Geosat. In order to use Ozi Explorer with Geosat 5, you must choose the right configuration.
To set the configuration:
1) from FILE menu, choose Configuration
2) in the opened page, choose GPS menu: in the GPS Maker tag choose NMEA Only from the option list
3) From Configuration choose now COM menu: in this page set the COM port number which the navigator is linked to (in the picture the red arrow indicates the tag). This operation is very important because if you set the wrong port the link will be not possible. You must set also the baud rate: choose 4800 in the tag indicated by the green arrow in the picture.
Now it’s possible to transfer waypoints.
In order to transfer the waypoints from Geosat to PC, it needs to select “Get waypoints from GPS using NMEA sentences” from the GPS NMEA ONLY menu.
In the Geosat, that must be turned on during the connection, in Contacts menu open the folder containing the waypoints that you want to transfer: in the opened folder click on SEND button. During the transfer, a pop up window that show the transfer of the waypoints on the OZI map in progress appears. Close this window clicking on Close button, after the message that informs user that transfer is correctly done appears on Geosat display.
Now it’s possible to see all the transferred waypoints marked with their name on the map. Note: if you want to store the transferred waypoints on Ozi, it’s necessary to save them before closing the program.

Importing and exporting data using the GeosatUpdate

Using the GeosatUpdate desktop application, you can manage tracks, points of interest, welcome images, voices and other contents of your GPS and synchronize them  very easily on the device. Through GSUpdate you can manage (export and import) traces in .plt  format (this format is used by OziExplorer for example)
1. Start the application Geosat Update and click on Geosat Tracks.
2. In the left window will appear  the recorded tracks on Geosat 4x4; select a track and then click the Export icon on Ozi Explorer to save on your PC the track in a  format compatible with Ozi Explorer.
3. To import a track, on the same screen click on the icon Import from Ozi Explorer and choose from the PC the file of the track you want to import.
3. The application Geosat Update will convert the file in a  format compatible with Geosat 4x4 and save in the memory card.
 
Exporting and Importing to and from Google Earth
It is possible to use Google Earth to create tracks and contacts, save the files in. kml format and convert them in GPX format using any free tool available on the Web (AvMap recommends ‘GPS Babel’) .
Vice versa, it is possible to export your contacts in GPX format through GSUpdate and visualize it directly to Google Earth.
IMPORTANT: Before you export your contacts and tracks using GSUpdate you need to SAVE all your data in File Manager.
After importing the data it is necessary to reload the file transferred on File Manager.

The color, sunlight-viewable LCD TFT backlight screen is 7 inches diagonal, with an 800 x 480 resolution and a brightness of 400 nits.

The display  is equipped with a sensor for the automatic adjustment of brightness.


We recommend you to avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight: if the device is not used, the screen should not be exposed directly to sunlight, exposure to ultraviolet rays of the display can shorten the life of the liquid crystals used in the cartographic plotter.
 

It refers to the internal temperature of the navigator, not to the atmospheric one.

 
In order to purchase a map update for your navigator without losing its Farmnavigator functions, you must download the map Update through the Geosat Suite.                                                                 
This procedure  replace the old map file and the old license with the new ones you just bought, keeping the function Farmnavigator inside the card and thus keeping intact the functions of your navigator.
 
                                                               
 
 
 
IMPORTANT: If you buy a new Memory card on the AvMap Shop on line peloaded with Euuropean Map you will receive a new card to be inserted inside the navigator instead of the one you already own. The new card purchased DOES NOT HAVE the Farmnavigator certificate, inserting it into the device the Farm functions will therefore not be available. Reinsert the original card to get the Farmnavigator functions.
 
 

 

 

In any AvMap navigator, both the navigation software and the map data are preloaded on the memory card. The software update, however, is separate and apart from map data update.

Periodically, AvMap releases updates for the navigation software, free of charge. The software update concerns the navigation functions, messages and vocal instructions languages, menus, graphics, etc... Software Updates can be downloaded from the Support Section or through  the Geosat Suite.

The Map update on the other hand is not free. The updated data are released several times a year by our map providers and reworked and implemented by AvMap. When you update the maps, you update data such as street names, attributes and characteristics of the roads, one-ways, roundabouts, house numbers, points of interest, etc... The updates can be purchased on the AvMap shop online or through  the Geosat Suite.

 


It is always recommended that you secure your data in the internal navigator’s memory in case of Software Update, Ram Clear (memory reset) or  SD card change, otherwise the data will be lost.

Saving data  in File Manager will secure them and it will be  possible to recover them by “reloading” them.

1. Go to page 3 of 4 from the main menu and select File Management

2. Select Save to Contacts (this will save all the marks) and Save Track. Each  file track saves one single track. While saving a MARK File saves all the previously stored Marks.

 

If this message appears "The data from the navigator may be corrupted " it is possible that your computer is not recognizing correctly the disk inside the navigator.

1.    Please check the USB connection on your PC, do not use USB extension cables or multi-hub devices, these do not allow the navigator  to be connected directly to the computer.
2.    Close the error dialog box, disconnect and reconnect the navigator using only the USB cable (if you have a desktop PC please try to connect the navigator to one of the ports on the back of the PC).
3.    Start the Suite and see if the problem is solved.

If it is not solved,

close the error dialog box and control that among the resources of your computer there is also  the local disk of the navigator and that it has been recognized (Local Disk contains the folder MP4 , the folder language and the file Geosat6start.exe).

If this disk is not present among the resources of the computer, then you should try on a different PC. Otherwise contact the AvMap Customer Support writing to info@avmap.it specifying the problem and the tests just done.

If the disk it has been recognized, please open it and locate the OS.ver. Send the file by email to  info@avmap.it specifying the problem. Also send the list of all visible files inside the disk, the Technical Support will tell you how to try to restore it.

Kenwood TH-D72A/E SetUp

• Turn the TH-D72A/E ON.
• Press the F button.
• Use the up/down/OK/Esc control to select and set the following functions:
- F-1 – Int. GPS – Off
- F-7 – Voice Alert – Off
• Press Esc to exit the function menu.
• Use the A/B button to select the desired radio side for APRS.
• Press the VFO button and adjust the frequency to your standard APRS frequency (144.39MHz in the US).
• If necessary, press F-Shift to remove + and – from the display.
• If necessary, press Tone to remove the T, CT, DCS, and D/O icons from the display. The icon position should be blank.
• Press Menu button and set or verify the menu settings below. Leave all other settings at default, for now. Note: only important default settings are included
here.
• Press the Menu button again to close the Menu.
 


The Kenwood TH-D72A/E is now ready to interface with the Geosat 6 APRS. Now that the configuration is complete, it’s time to see if it will work.
1. Turn off the Geosat 6 APRS and the TH-D72A/E.

2. Connect the two units using the data cable provided with your AvMap Geosat 6 APRS. Plug the fourconductor plug, with three black insulating rings into the I/O port on the Geosat 6 APRS. This is the top jack on the right side of the Geosat 6 APRS. Make sure the plug is firmly seated in the jack. Open the
COM cover on the TH-D72A/E and plug the three-conductor plug (two black insulating rings) into the COM port. Again, make sure it is firmly seated. A common problem with operation failure is not having the plugs firmly inserted in the units, or having the connections reversed. Double check your connections.

3. Turn on the Geosat G6 APRS and the TH-D72A/E. Wait until the Geosat 6 APRS has acquired sufficient satellites to establish a 3D position. A blinking GPS icon (not iGPS) should then appear in the upper right corner of TH-D72A/E display.

4. Set the volume at about 1/3 volume. If there is APRS activity in your area, you should here the brief “growl” of packet transmissions. You will hear a short
beep when you receive an APRS signal, a longer beep when you transmit your position, and a double (highlow) beep when you receive your position back from a digipeater. Now that you have a working system, you will want to decrease your beacon rate, and change other settings according to your desired operating method.
Read the APRS section of the Kenwood TH-D72A/E CD manual. This manual provides additional information on the functions of the various APRS controls, and

Troubleshooting
If you do not see a flashing “GPS” signal on the upper right hand corner of the TH-D72A/E, or APRS stations are not appearing in the APRS Contacts list on  the Geosat 6 APRS, then the data cable may not be fully or correctly seated.

1. Remove one plug and assure that it is the correct plug for that unit and is plugged into the correct port, according to the description in the previous section
of these instructions. Return the plug to the proper port and firmly push it in.
2. Check that the cord at the other end is in the correct port and firmly press on the plug to assure it is properly seated.
3.Check the cord for continuity and no shorts, using an ohmmeter, especially if it is a home brewed data cable.
4. Verify that the Geosat 6 APRS is computing a position fix.
5. Listen to your APRS frequency on the TH-D72A/E or on a different radio to verify there is APRS activity in your area.
6. Reread and verify the setup sections of these instructions.
7. Perform a Partial Reset of your TH-D72A/E per the instructions on page RESET-1 of the CD manual, then, repeat the setup instructions. A partial reset will not erase your memory channels, but will set all other settings to their default values.

 

The Ram Clear is a memory reset that can be carried out in case of fatal error or to reset the memory in order to restore the default
settings. Attention: this operation will delete your Marks if they have not been saved with the File Manager.
1. Connect the power supply of your AvMap navigator. The unit has to be turned off at that time.
2. Power on the navigator with the PAGE button pressing at the same time the FIND button. Hold both keys until the ‘System Test’ window is displayed.
3. Select Ram Clear with the JOYSTICK, then press the + button to confirm.
4. You will then see a message “Are you sure?” press the + key to confirm. ‘Ram Cleared’ will be displayed.
5. When the Ram is cleared, you can turn off the unit with the PAGE button.

Press twice the MENU key, select SETUP DATA BOXES and press the ENT key to confirm. The DATA BOXES FIELDS window is displayed. The first data box is selected and it appears in black. Press the ENT key. Now select the box you want to replace with the one selected and press the ENT key to confirm. To quit press twice the ESC key.
