      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Nexus Classic Server/GPS Navigator Continuous Alarm

Recommended Posts

My boat partner is off cruising and I am trying to help remotely. We have a Nexus Classic Server and older GPS Navigator head unit, as well as several newer NX2 units and a MultiXL display. While cruising, an audible alarm started coming from the GPS Navigator head unit. All instruments, NMEA output to computer, AP, etc... kept working fine. It doesn't appear to be a waypoint proximity or anchor alarm. The only potential cause he could come up with is his daughter accidentally turned the battery switch to "OFF" rather than "Both" while running the motor for charging, but it was apparently in that condition for some time. Pressing the two "triangle" keys together does not clear the alarm. The alarm continues even have a power down and back up, but the instruments continue to work fine. The manual hasn't been helpful.

 

Any ideas? We are planning to deliver the boat back from the San Juan islands to Portland this weekend and would really rather not listen to an alarm, but would like the instruments on.

 

Thanks - Eric

No real help as far as trouble shooting the instruments is concerned but can you disconnect the speaker somehow and fix it when you get home?

Thanks for the response. The speaker is internal to the unit, but we will detach the whole unit if we cannot otherwise fix this. Might be time to upgrade to the new server...

Not expecting much judging by the lack of response, but in the interest of accuracy my partner discovered (after removing seahood) it was actually one of the NX2 displays with alarm. We can disconnect this one display for our trip, but of course it's nice to have and we'll want to fix it when we get back anyway.
