hi everyone,
l have a question about the furuno fcv295, can anyone tell me the tap settings for these 2 transducers as these are not mentioned in the manual that l have. they are 50B-9B & 200B-8B.
unfortunately furuno australia wont help me unless l pay them . reason being l bought my unit from the U.S.

Regards

in fact, i found it on furuno's website

it amazes me that furuno couldn't just give him that info. it took a whopping 2 minutes of my time and would probably have taken a furuno tech even less time.

Not to hijack this but I have had an issue putting in Lat/Lon numbers from my old machines. I have the New NavNet 3D and all my old numbers are in the format of
DDD*MM.mmm and the NavNet 3D ONLY has the format of DDD*MM.mmmm
You can't just add a 0 to the end of my old numbers to fill out to the mmmm format.
The points are way off on my GPS charts. They are NO help at Furuno and what is worse is the New NavNet TZ machines have the DD*MM.mmm format as an option. I need a way to convert mmm to mmmm. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

this has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand, so how is this not hijacking the thread? create your own thread with a subject title that is appropriate for the topic and someone that knows the answer will have a better chance of seeing your post.

i don't mean to hijack this thread either, but the downshift linkage on my 78 buick has rubbed a hole in the third vaccuum line that runs to the canister next to the cruise control diaphram. now when i put it in drive the radio changes from fm to am.
my questian is, would this cause my oil light to come on?

Hmmm Well it seemed that the OP's question was answered and was hoping that since you helped him out, that you might have an answer for this. My apologies. Should have started my own thread like you suggested.
I did think that Philgorp's post was slightly amusing and your THT name my be a bit understated. Good Day Sir
