In that case it either back to Garmin or trawl through the interweb to see if there is a hack. Some radios can be reset with a secret button press sequence, but I don't know if that applies to Garmin, sorry.

Just bought a new boat but the VHF is programmed with the ex-owners MMSI so i have to reset and program my new MMSI. very important for me cause i wanna start with holidays. Thx if there is any info
The MMSI "belongs" to the boat, not the previous owner. You should be able to have your local (German) telecommunications authority update the details to reflect your ownership.

If the MMSI is not German then that may be different?

I didn't know that! If correct it defeats to whole point of an MMSI - international databases will hold the out-of-date information for many months, possibly up to a year causing potential confusion in an emergency.

It also means a LOT of VHF sets being ripped out and reprogrammed each season!

Databases all over the world should be updated regularly (daily or weekly). So the new ones would miss for many months, possibly up to a year if they donīt?
Iīll have a call tomorrow for checking this.

That has been my experience - but I'm sure things are more efficient within Germany so it should not effect you at home.

mmsi cant be transferred to germany, as the first two digits indicate the country. mmsi stays with boat, not individual. no argument or discussion. its very simple to contact ofcom and transfer details. radio should only be reset if upgraded and sold on

I think you've got wrong end o't stick Festa, the op is in Germany & keeping it there, not transferring.

As I understand it
Having gone through the process in the last 6 months.

MMSI is digital identity of boat
Boat has to be licencesed in order to gain MMSI (ship's radio licence here!)
Boat licence is based on boat owner having VHF licence (short range certificate etc).
This may be different for commercial vessels.

When the boat changes ownership, the validity of the boat's licence is no longer valid, as it's based on the previous owners qualification.
Therefore, new owner, with their own vhf licence, applies for licence for new their boat, if they list DSC radio, MMSI is issued (or new owner's MMSI is re-assigned to their new boat. Opening another can of worms for their old boat's new owners).

I think "the system" is happy to ignore the problems involved in reprogramming, although it is useful in the event of your radio being stolen.

Manufacturers generally reprogramme, sometimes for free, sometimes for set fee.
