Operation:

  • Apply power to the GeoStamp® HD.  During power-up the yellow “GPS Fix” LED will blink for 10 seconds.
  • An on-screen “X” icon appears if there is no valid communications with the external GPS receiver
  • An on-screen “?” icon appears if there is a valid connection to the external GPS receiver but no satellite fix
  • The on-screen GPS fields will update after each valid NMEA GPRMC, GPGGA, and SBDBT sentence is received from the external GPS receiver.  The yellow “GPS Fix” will illuminate.
  • Press the MENU button to enter the on-screen menu configuration (see below)
  • Simultaneous press the UP/DOWN buttons to configure the incoming video input source (see below)

 

 

Configuring the incoming video source:

  • The GeoStamp® HD unit must be configured to match the incoming video input source (AHD, HD-TVI, and HD-CVI 720p or 1080p)
  • To match the incoming video input source press and release the UP/DOWN buttons simultaneously to cycle through the video options until stable text is visible on-screen (you will see an on-screen menu)
  • Press the ENTER button and wait until for the normal operation screen
  • The configuration information is stored in non-volatile memory so information is retained even with loss of power to GeoStamp® HD

 

Status Icon:

If the “Show Status” option is enabled (by default) the following icons may appear:

The “GPS Fix” LED illuminates when the attached GPS receiver has a fix with a minimum of 4 satellites.  A GPS fix is required for on-screen GPS information to update. 

 

On-Screen Menu Configuration:

At any time press the MENU button to enter the on-screen menu configuration.  The UP, DOWN, and ENTER buttons move the cursor and change the settings.  All configuration information is stored in non-volatile memory so information is retained even with loss of power to GeoStamp® HD.
