PaulinOz, thanks for the info. I'm not sure why I didn't think to look there. It sure would be nice if stuff like this was documented somewhere. My large users manual is in Spanish so it hasn't been very helpful to a non-Spanish speaker but I don't recall
seeing almost anything in there about the electronics
which isn't surprising given that they are probably not installed but the factory.
Houston450, that's the exact process I'm going through since the 450 I purchased was previously documented in the UK and I'm changing to USCG documentation
. From my research
the AIS and EPIRB
need to go back to the manufacturer or authorized service
center to be recoded.
I'm also finding out that figuring out how and where the electronics
were installed and configured is a bit of a mystery. I suspect you could hire someone to figure it all out for you but I prefer to stumble along and learn as I go.
