Please check if the pilot is acting the right direction ,press +10 key and check if boat teers STB,
press -10 and check if boat turns PORT ,if it acts reverse, see handbook to reverse action.
Verify if compass course in standby is indicating correct course .
Do the calibration procedure as stated in in the handbook (360 degree turn)
If it still not indicate the correct course ,or is frozen, compass or printed circuit is faulty.
Check the resistance between the wires of the compass unit .(see google internet)
Good luck

I replaced my old computer with the down loaded course information on it. Do I just down load the courses again on my new computer and is there and additional charge?


when you install the software, it asks for email and password. Click on where it says, "click here to login" and it should ask for your email once. put in your email and password, hit submit, and you should be good to go. I keep it on my home, work computers, as well as a laptop for roadtrips.

Trouble acquiring satellites


try the reset
Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

with the unit off, try pressing and holding your finger on the low right corner of the screen and slide the power switch to the on position until you see the message "confirm if you really want to delete all user data?" hit yes and let it restart. then it will set up the nuvi again, so follow the prompts.

if that fails, hook up the nuvi to the web updater and get the latest update

(actually i would do this either way)

I can't enter adreess (house number)


Hi , when first selecting " navigate to " you have a choice of selecting :
  1. address / house / street name number
  2. road intersection.
of course if you choose option 1 above then you would need to enter a house number but if you cannot enter a house number then you should not select option one but select option 2 . ...... option 2 lets you select the street name only without requiring you to enter a house number.

Good luck

I bought a C80 Raymarine Plotter this has a NMEA pigtail with Brown, Screen, Yellow, Green And White wires I haave also bought a RS 125 Receiver this has a pigtail lead with Red , Green, Yellow, Brown and...


If you have a Raymarine pilot it makes sence to wire it all up to Seatalk. Wire as follows Red to red , silver to silver, yellow to yellow, brown(on rs125) to silver on seatalk buss Green (on rs125) to red on seatalk buss.The above is for the conection between RS125 and C80.
To hook the pilot to system you just need to hook the seatalk lines (red, yellow,silver) from the pilot to the conection with the RS125 and the seatalk cable to the C80.(Color for color).The sea talk connection for your pilot can be picked up from you course computer they are labeld and colored on the unit.
If you are not running a course computer as in the case with the older wheel and tiller pilots you will need to take a sea talk cable and cut it. Once it is cut you will see the red yellow and silver wires and you can tap into there . Remember to connect the cable back together were you cut it. Hope this helps

Steering wheel controls and on-star


To use the OnStar you need the GM-01 converter that connects the factory wire harness to any type of head unit you wish to install.
