Four Winns continually strives to improve its
products. Unit specifications, including
standard and optional equipment are
constantly being modified. Equipment
availability is also subject to change. The most
current and accurate information available at
the time of publication is included in this
manual. Some variation in equipment,
description, location, and details can result.
A GPS/chart plotter is an electronic system through
which a navigator can determine his position regard-
less of weather. The GPS sensor receives high
frequency radio signals generated from satellites to
generate coordinate readings on the display. The
GPS navigational unit takes this information and uses
it to determine the vessel’s exact position and indi-
cates the vessels position on the chart plotter. The
chart plotter allows one’s course to be plotted elec-
tronically. Factory installed GPS/Plotter system is
offered in the optional navigational packages. It is
mounted at the helm. If equipped, refer to the manu-
facturer’s literature included in the owner’s packet.
These devices are only an aid to navigation.
Their accuracy can be affected by many
factors including equipment failure or defects,
environmental conditions, and improper
handling or use. It is the user’s responsibility to
exercise common prudence and navigational
judgement. These devices should not be relied
upon as a sole means of navigation nor as a
.  substitute for such prudence and judgement.
You should not rely on these displays as your
primary source of navigation. Rather, you
should use the chart plotter as a backup to
official government charts and traditional
methods of navigation.
Radar along with the GPS/Plotter is included in the
navigation package options. The radar detects
objects/targets and displays them for the operator to
see. If so equipped refer to the manufacturer’s
