Question about Raymarine C80 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My Raymarine C70 is off in locating my boat by 40-50 feet

I bought a 2005 Chaparral 290 with a Raymarine C70 GPS/Fishfinder/Radar. The GPS seems to be about 50-60 feet off in its placement of the boat. For example, when we're docked in our marina, the C70 shows us sitting on dry land. I heard the military had errors built into the system years ago, but I understood that the error has been removed. I sent the unit to Raymarine for check out and software upgrade. Is this a condition that I have to live with or is there an adjustment or setting that I can use to correct it?

Thanks for your help.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a Raymarine C70 to my knowledge is a Multi-Function Display. It is not the model number for the GPS. The GPS could be something like a Raystar 125 whose output is then displayed at the C70. Having said this, then the necessary correction, check out and software upgrade should be performed on the actual GPS rather than on the display C70.

Would appreciate any ypdates or developments.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

How do I get water depths displayed on my C70


You haven't said if you have a DSM fitted ( sonar unit and tranducer) the C70 is only a multifunction display unit MFDU you then put a card in for navigation, a radar aerial/ scanner or a sonar unit for depth and fish finding .
if you have a sonar unit and it's working then
press Presentation
press Depth Digit and select on / off
press OK or cancel to return to the default display
hope this helps

If you have no chart card for your local area, you definitely need one! As far as getting various data on the screen, as long as it is available on the system, you can display different kinds of data by pressing the "data" button and then following the steps to add data to your readout.

No depth reading while on plane.


Depending on your transducer type, you may have a liquid filled type that simply needs refilling. If this is the case check for leaks and get it redone. If not it could be transducer placement or cavitation under the hull.
