Ok...heres the story...
Bought this great boat
, see....and it didn't really have the best care taken of it , see...and it didn't have any electronics
so...My beautiful wife and I decided to buy each other a Garmin
740s with HD radar
bundle for early Christmas
, see...(did I mentiopn yet how much I really love her?)
Anywho... back to it.
So got the chart plotter part in and powered up and it works great!!!! Did I mention how much I love my wife...of yeah, did.
So now I am trying to install the radar
now...got all the stuff and goodies...and now figuring how to hoist my fat butt up the mast
, as I can not subject her to that again...
Im ready to start working...all the beer
is in the cooler, got an extra pair of hands...and low and behold, it says that IF RUNNING ALONG SIDE OF OTHER WIRES, THAT IT SHOULD HAVE EMI SHIELDING SO IT DOESN'T GET INTERFERENCE
WHAT THE ....???
Now, when calling West Marine
(where my loving wife and I purchased it ...great deal by the way...and did I mention, yes , sorry, I did) they had no idea of this...and of course do not sell said item.
Also called an electronics
store, and they had no idea what I was talking about...so I figure I was speaking Swahili or something ...so in my best English
asked again, and still no dice.
So now...the $1.78 question...has anyone installed this themselves, and what did you do? Where did you get this 'EMI shielding' magic???
Or was a deal struck with the devil here, and someone installed it without this sorcery and what happened???
Did it all explode!???
Please...need to know ASAP as we sit in Half Moon Bay....trying to continue our great adventure.
Or if in the area...maybe stop by and point and snicker...we all know that helps too.
