Nexus MOB Function
Posted 26 September 2012 - 06:38 AM
I have a nexus log and wind transducer and a gps aerial(garmin 17x_HVS) feeding the FDX server. Output is to a multicontrol display and nexus classic wind display. Everything is operating ok.
When I push the MOB button, I get an alarm, the multicontrol display goes blank (no data) and "D/R" appears in the bottom rh corner. I've changed settings on the multicontrol display but always get the same result. Any suggestions.

Did you install a seperate MOB button?

The D/R actually works, I have tested it in simulated MOB trials. Arguably, in an area with current and windage/leeway, it is better than a GPS fix as the MOB will be drifting.
Here is the button itself. http://www.chicagoma...ush_Buttton.htm

Pogen, good to read your MOB works with D/R. That is the better option. I don't think the GPS aerial is my problem as the Garmin outputs the same nmea sentences as the nexus. I'm reading position and SOG/COG data on my multicontrol display ok also outputting position details to the DSC VHF radio so the GPS data is being processed in the server. I'm guessing one of the settings is not correct. Instead of D/R appearing on the screen, I think I should be getting MOB.
I haven't tried using waypoints on the nexus system as i use my handheld gps or laptop for navigating. I'll try this soon as it may lead to the solution I need.
