GPS Module
Installation Instructions
This package contains an LGC-2000 GPS antenna/receiver module with
the parts needed for mounting the module on a flat surface or pole. An
optional magnet is available for temporary mounting on any ferrous
metal surface.
This module is compatible with any NMEA 2000 ready blue connector

Lowrance
unit.
Tools required for installation are: wire pliers, flat screwdriver, drill, 1"
(25 mm) drill bit and 3/16" (4.75 mm) drill bit.
The LGC-2000 GPS module contains a 12-parallel channel GPS receiver.
The LGC-2000 attaches directly to Lowrance products that display GPS
position information. It has a blue connector on the end of the cable.
The LGC-2000 requires 9 to 20 volts DC power. It draws power through
the unit or from the NMEA 2000 buss (see unit manual for instructions
on powering a NMEA 2000 buss).
The GPS module can be mounted on any flat surface, provided there is
access behind the mounting surface for the screws. The optional mag-
net allows the module to be easily used on cars or off-road vehicles. The
pole mount adapter lets you mount the antenna on a pole or swivel
mount that uses standard marine 1" - 14 threads.
A 25-foot (7.62 m) Y-adapter extension cable is supplied with the LGC-
2000. The extension cable has a male connector on both ends. This is to
prevent the user from plugging the LGC-2000 directly into the unit.
GPS MODULE INSTALLATION
Surface Mount
The GPS module can be easily installed on any flat surface that is at
least 3-1/2" (90 mm) wide. Be sure that a clear, unobstructed view of
the sky is available at the selected location. GPS signals travel "line-of-
sight" at very high frequencies, so nearly anything blocking the an-
tenna can stop the unit from finding a satellite. Caution: Do not mount
in line with a radar antenna. Radar radiates high-energy signals that
can interfere with GPS signal reception.
In an automobile, you may achieve good results by simply placing the
external antenna on the top of the dash, at the base of the windshield. A

    Pole Mount The GPS module attaches to the pole mount adapter with the supplied 4mm screws. You can route the cable through the slot in the side of the module and down the side of the pole. Or, you can pass it down through the pole mount adapter and run the cable inside the pole.
