Mmsi number?

Hi fellars

I have just refitted my old vhf100 dsc radio into our new rib. I have been on the of com site but can't find a way of using my existing MMSI number. The only way I can change the number is through a garmin agent, can anyone help at all?

Cheers
Steve

Back to manufacturer is the only way I know of to change the MMSI once programmed.

The MMSI number stays with the vessel so yes you'll have to have a Garmin dealer reset your VHF MMSI ready for you to input the new one.

Depends on the manufacturer; I've reset a Raymarine MMSI myself by following instructions given over the phone by the retailer. Not easy though!

I spoke with Icom about this the other month, I wanted to sel my old Icom and buy a better model from their range.
They said that in common with other manufacturers the sets had to be factory reset, certain dealers could do it for me at between 25-40 while I waited!
I said I would rather buy another brand if that was the case and the rep couldn' t care less so I bought a Navman instead, you can change the number very easily yourself which is handy if you want to sell it on in the future.
Found the Navman to be just as good if not better than the old Icom.

we have also changed an mmsi with the aid of instructions over the phone on a boat we delivered back here from Ireland. The previous owner had indeed programmed a number in but I doubt the mmsi 123456789 was actually legitimate
There was a thread on here many moons ago in which a guy did describe how to change the mmsi on various navman models but it seems to have disappeared into a black hole somewhere.
If you wouldn't mind colcreate could you pm me the basic instructions, or where I can find them, for Navman radios as the one I have put in the rib is out of another previous one and still with an old mmsi in it.

Dave,

Instructions are still here - it involved a magic way of inputting a model number. Search and you will find!

For a model 7100 try this:
Turn radio off. Press and hold "scan" and "esc" while turning radio on. Enter pin: - 7 enter 1 enter 0 enter 0 enter. Follow menu to clear MMSI and/or ATIS. When done, turn off and on radio, and follow menu to enter MMSI again.
