NAVICOLOR GT 41.68018.11

Hi
I have a 2019 Lagoon 40 and it is provided with the above LCD display to provide info on fluid levels, batteries etc. I am trying to kind some technical literature on this unit which is manufactured by Scheiber. They seem ot have a pretty good website, but no owners manual and there's a 4-digit PIN to access the programming.

I have tried contacting Scheiber through their website and email, but so far no response. Does anyone have any useful information on this?

Thanks
Neil

Re: NAVICOLOR GT 41.68018.11

I'm replying to an old post - but in a similar situation. What a frustrating experience with Scheiber OEM equipment provided on a Beneteau 46.1 sailboat.



Looking to upgrade batteries, add solar, etc. Scheiber says 'talk to Beneteau'. Beneteau says 'we don't have any answers'.



Results seems to be that entire Scheiber Navicolor monitoring system will be replaced with some aftermarket product (e.g., Victron or something).



Great technology claims to bring together monitoring systems - no support!

Hi
I have been able to get into the setting on the Navicolor and upgrade batteries etc. If you are having problems doing this, please PM me and i would be happy to help. Also, I have managed to get some aftermarket support through their US distributors Marinebeam. Nathan there is pretty helpful.

Good Luck!
Neil

Hi, I’ve actually gotten the code as well and it doesn’t appear that the batteries were ever programmed in…had a couple questions if you have time Neil?

I’m new to CF and am not sure how to pm..I’m not the most tech savvy, sorry, but I’d like to see or hear how you set your up as I have a lagoon 40 as well..2020…previous owners never sailed her nor took much interest, it would seem, in setting up many of the options available so please let me know when you can, I was able to get the code and I can edit but want to make sure it’s done correctly as it’s looks like it’s showing a negative on my house batteries! Thanks!

Re: NAVICOLOR GT 41.68018.11

thanks Neil.

I've been leaning now towards removing the Scheiber system and replacing with a Victron setup including Cerbo GX and touch panel. In the spring I will replace batteries, add solar, as well as some other upgrades so seems like opportune time.

I was wondering if anyone has compared the Victron to Scheiber - any compelling reason to keep the Scheiber system?
Note in my system, the Navicolor only reports information- no functionality is enabled to switch to generator (I don't have one) or otherwise. So if I went Victron it would replace the reporting only, from the Navicolor.

Re: NAVICOLOR GT 41.68018.11

Hi all, can anyone else answer questions on programming house batteries into navicolor? Have code just need step by step so I don’t make mistake but since it’s a purely informative system with no execution capabilities I probably can’t mess it up to bad but still would like to utilize the system…really can’t find any real manual on programming once in with code…thanks in advance.
