Losmandy Garmin GPS for Gemini 2 GoTo System - GPS2


Garmin GPS for Gemini 2 GoTo System

  • Add GPS to a Losmandy GM-8, G-11, Titan, or G9 mount that has the Gemini 2 GoTo System installed.
  • GPS functionality is not required for your Gemini 2, but it is especially helpful for those who travel with their telescope and like the instant lat/long information GPS provides.
  • Plugs into Port 1 on the Gemini 2 system. Does not work with the Gemini 1.

Adding GPS to your telescope provides you with additional information:

  • Longitude
  • Latitude
  • Date & Time in UTC.

Once you have the longitude, latitude, and date/time provided by the GPS, Gemini 2 can calculate star positions from any location.

How to Use the Garmin GPS:

  • Plug in the single connector into Port 1 of the Gemini 2 panel.
  • Make sure that the GPS unit is away from the mount.
  • Turn on the Gemini 2, wait 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Turn off the Gemini 2, wait 15 seconds and then turn it back on.
  • All information will be downloaded automatically into the Gemini 2 unit.
  • Unplug the Garmin GPS unit. You can do this with out turning off the Gemini 2.
