More details on the Garmin GMS 10
Overview: The Garmin Marine Network is a high-speed data system that lets you connect multiple components and sensors together aboard your vessel. This fast network is anchored by compatible GPSMAP chartplotters with built-in network links. Network-compatible components include GPS units, detailed charts, radar, sonar, satellite weather receivers, and other sensors. This GMS 10 Network Port Expander lets you share data between multiple sensor and multiple chartplotters. The switch operates at a blazing 100-megabits to give you Ethernet-like data transfer speeds for a robust network. Each multi-function display (MFD) can be independently configured with customizable pages. Installing multiple MFDs makes it easier to access the network from anywhere on your boat. The GMS 10 has five RJ-45 network ports, each with a waterproof cap, and comes with a 6' Marine Network cable. The Expander is powered by the included 7-foot, 7-pin cable (10-35 volts DC). The unit is 11.841" x 2.267" x 4.168", and weighs 19.75 ounces.
Multiple Connections: The GMS 10 makes it easy to expand your network. Most chartplotters have two network ports, so if you need to connect more network devices, or additional chartplotters, the Network Port Expander is the solution. Using two Expanders allow connection and data sharing between even more sensors and chartplotters.
LED Indicator Lights: Above each network port are three LED indicator lights:
- LNK/ACT: When the light is lit solid, a link has been established between the Expander and the attached device. A flashing light indicates the presesnce of network activity.
- DUP/COL: When the light is lit solid, the attached device is operating at full network capacity. When the light is off or flashing, the device is operating at half capacity.
- 100: When the light is on, the network is running at 100 megabits per second. Off means it it running at 10 megabits per second.
Network Cables: The Garmin Marine Network cables allow you to connect the chartplotters and sensors on your vessel to the Port Expander. The cables feature marine-construction capable of withstanding harsh conditions. Both ends of the cable are equipped with water-resistant RJ-45 Ethernet connectors, complete with protective collars and gaskets. A 1.25" diameter grommet is included for passing the cable through walls. Additional cables are available in 6' and 20' lengths.
