Once the physical connection to the host GPS or LORAN has been
made, it is essential to select an appropriate data output on the host unit.
This can be done by referring to the manual for the host GPS/LORAN
and choosing an option that corresponds to one of the compatible data
input types listed previously.
If the host GPS or LORAN is correctly connected, switched on and out-
putting data, the KMD 150 will automatically start to read and decode the
incoming data. There is no need to set an input type on the KMD 150 as
this is done automatically.
After a few seconds if data is being received, the word YES will appear
next to the RECEIVING DATA: heading. The type of data being
received will then be displayed beside the DATA INPUT: heading.
If the data being received contains valid fix information (i.e. the host GPS
has a fix) the word YES will appear next to the DATA VALID: heading.
Once the unit is receiving and validating the incoming data select PREV
