Default NORTHSTAR 800 LORAN COUPLER

Just got this machine from a freind but need a new / used coupler for the unit. Northstar was of no help as far as locating one.

Any ideas or leads would be great. Thanks.

An OEM coupler is pretty expensive (I bought one a couple of weeks ago from Marine Electronics O/T Outer Banks;800-654-9251) but Gem Electronics has an aftermarket one for less than $100(800-394-3736). Good luck.

Thanks for the lead.. I will call on Monday. I understand that the aftermarket ones may not be as accurate as the OEM unit.

If you don't mind me asking, what pricing was the OEM unit..?? Did they have just the one..??

Thanks.

They just had the one in stock & it ran me about $250 wholesale. I don't thing accuracy would be an issue with the aftermarket coupler. As long as the signal is strong,the processor in the chassis accounts for your accuracy. It dosen't care which coupler you use!

Northstar stopped supporting the 800 about a year ago. But they did sell the rest of their 800 parts and accessories to a dealer.

Hampton Navigation out of NY. They may have a coupler you could purchase. http://www.electronicsforboats.com/

Thanks for the info. I just called them and they do indeed have them new for the unit.. Runs about $240.

Can't wait to put this unit to good use and use some of the numbers I got.

Thanks again.
