    Default Adding GPS Maps After Taking Delivery

    Has anyone had their Moomba dealer add GPS maps for the 7" display after taking delivery? We ordered our Mojo without and now that we are out on the lake I'm wishing I had ordered the option. I know I can get a handheld marine GPS but would really like to have it integrated with the existing display.

    I think you just have to buy a navionics card. Give your dealer a call

    i would do a thorough check through all your paperwork and accessories and things that came with the boat. Your dealer should have given you everything that they didnt use, hardware, etc. There might be a small USB plug in there somewhere. If so then climb under the dash and find the empty female USB port plug dangling around and plug that in and boom you'll have maps. We did order the GPS but the dealer did not install the plug, I found it later and plugged it in myself after the maps didnt work during our delivery. A friend of mine did not order GPS with his but boat came with the plug anyway.

    Should be pretty simple as stated above it is just a little USB drive that plugs in under the Helm. Hardest part is locating the USB cord under the Helm.

    I'm thinking about buying a Navionics map card (SD or mini-SD) and a SD to USB adapter and plugging that into the female USB connection under the helm. The card from Navionics is $200 and the adapter is $10. Would be a pretty inexpensive way to get the maps. I wonder if that will work?

    Really not sure. I can't see why it wouldn't but also could see a world where for some reason it wouldn't be compatible due to some formatting or something LOL. Have you reached out to the dealer to see the cost to have it added through them? I am sure it is more than $210 but the question is how will you feel if it doesn't work and you are out $210........

    I was wondering the same, but donít know if the cards would read the same on the screen. I assume the screens are running some form of Linux (because it seems most things like that are), but I donít know if the USB version has anything else built into it.

    Find a buddy who has a bass boat that has GPS on their depthfinder. Ask to borrow their card for a day to see if it will work. Then return it to them and buy your own...
