Navman gps VHF problem??

Reset my navman 5500 to factory settings and then restarted gps as it wouldn't find itself. Manual says this is typical if been off for a long time, ie all winter. Did this and now it works fine. However when I turn the VHF on, navman 7700 I think, it says no gps and after a while beeps and says enter gps.

Did me restoring to factory setting on the gps cause this?
Did me restarting the gps cause this?

What do I need to do, is it a setting on the gps or the VHF that needs changing?
Help appreciated.

Probably caused by the factory reset.You will need to reconfigure the GPS NMEA 0182 output. Should be in the setup menu .

I don't know if I have navbus connection or to use nmea. Both VHF and gps are navman. Will try both and see.

Always something going wrong, all part of boating.

Set off on round the island of Anglesey last year, dropped a stick in the fuel tank when filling, then changed the setting on the gps so that we had no charts for the swellies when going through at below half tide. Screen went White. LOL, my old man was convinced I'd done it to wind him up.

Take NMEA and do not take the navbus.

Just wanted to say thanks to all who contributed. I could have spent hours trying the settings on the radio had people not pointed my in the direction of the gps itself. Also to use the nmea not the navbus.

Suffice to say, got on the boat and fixed it in under a minute. Benefits of the forum.

Safe boating.
