The 962 can operate as a GPS/DGPS navigator, as a chart plotter and, when equipped with the optional model 490 Echo Sounder, as a sounder and fishfinder. The built-in 12-channel GPS receiver supplies position information for the 962X. The 962 XD version adds differential GPS accuracy with use of a two-channel, fully automatic low-frequency differential receiver. Fishermen or others who have valuable libraries of loran C TDs will be pleased by the system's ability to use real-time loran C information or phantom loran TDs created from GPS data. The GPS/DGPS mode provides either a steer to waypoint screen or a pseudo 3-D screen. Both screens present all the expected information: waypoint name, SOG, COG, distance, BRG, XTE, ETA and ETE. The large display makes both screens easy to use.
