Question about Garmin GPSMAP 188C GPS Receiver
I have a 188 c chart plotter that won't read the card upon start up.
SOURCE: raytheon rl70
My 2002 vintage RL70 system had continual "no fix" or "lost fix" messages through 2006 and 2007 seasons. Raymarine rep suggested replacing the 120 GPS receiver with the 125 receiver. I did this past winter and the problem disappeared. The 125 receiver is better technology....not one "lost fix" since replacement.

I think you have a C- Map card (black colour)clean the contacts with a contactcleaner if it not works try the card somewhere else
The C-Map card have problems that they work for a while and than stops inside the card a some memorychips and they losing contact

Check to see if this is a power issue by connecting to shore power and fully charging your batteries overnight with instruments off. While still connected to shore power, with batteries fully charged, turn on C80 navigation system. If the loading screen comes on and does not reset, then try holding down the button immediately to the right of the red power button for at least 3 seconds to see if the system re-boots.

Testimonial: "Factory reset solved the problem. Soft key next to power button worked a treat!"
Your problem is the 4GB card. The Raymarine C-Series have a problem with their compatability tool and larger CF cards. You should use a card no bigger than 256mb.
The card probably worked in the store because the newer models accept larger cards.
Get an older card from ebay etc and copy your 4gb files onto it and try again.
