Adding GPS Navigation

Try it first. I had one that didn't like a Malibu update and it didn't work any longer after I updated the card. No way to get your money back. They update the maps regulary but it's mostly small adjustments. You will probably not need the updates.

So I have installed the antenna. Screwed in the connector and stuck the antenna puck to the steel structural mount that is in the front port side of the compartment under the helm (left side of pic). The pic is taken from the bow area of boat looking into this compartment after removing the plastic storage box. Used zip ties to make sure it or the wires don't move or fall off or get chaffed.

Do  need to do the computer update to SD card or will it work as is? Says readyimage.thumb.png.13ea27f6353674109dfb0f2111e61882.png to use right on the front of the box but inside says to update?image.thumb.png.99d99be09e55a6c0be30f54a73657c72.png

I just plugged it in without updating because I heard some folks had problems after an update. Worked fine. The first time you start it up don’t be surprised that it takes awhile to initialize things.

When registering this online, it asks what type of chart plotter it will be used with? What is it used on the Malibu?

Thanks!!! Love this forum. I’ll send him a message. 

Skymedic - Did you ever have any luck on your 2013?  I just bought a 2013 247 LSV and would like to come up with some type of nav solution.  My lake has some pretty significant stump fields and I want to try to create some "safe zones" via navigation to avoid getting into trouble.

 

Any suggestions on mods or true aftermarket "bolt ons" would be appreciated.

I decided not to do it. When added and using , the map is all that will appear on the screen. Not allowing you to view any boat vitals or other info. This can be rectified by having the maps displayed on a connected iPad. Good luck
