Question about Raymarine RL80CRC Plus GPS Receiver

3 Answers

Weak Echo from ships, thunderstorms, etc.

We left Newport, RI for Annapolis in late September, our RL80CRC worked great. We left Annapolois for Norfolk arriving in late October, again all ok. We then left Norfolk for BVI's and we had a crew member who was inthrawled with the Radar & GPS. So much so, that he was continually pressing buttons trying to figure out the various things the unit could do. After a couple of days, we seemed to loose echos from passing ships or incoming rain squalls. It was our thought that he may have changed some settings. We tried to go through the manual but without success. The unit was purchased in the Spring of 2004. What  suggestions might you have to try and improve the strength of the echos?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, to my understanding, the simplest is to turn it off, remove all power connections and all external attachments. Wait a couple of minutes, say 5~10, reconnect all, power up. May take a bit of time to re-acquire satellites and/or re-initialize. This action simulates a hard reset reverting the unit back to factory default. Any and all personalized settings/configurations may and could be erased.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Alternately or better yet, try first a soft reset:


    • Turn off unit;

    • press and hold the bottom right corner of the screen;

    • While still pressing and holding bottom right corner;

    • press and hold power button and continue holding both until a white screen appears with a black dot;

    • follow the on screen directions.
    Cheers.

Garmin 1100lm locked in press dot game?


Your unit is in calibration mode. There should be a black dot to press on the calibration screen. Keep pressing the dot as it moves around the screen, you may need to press very firmly and use a stylus until it says calibration complete.
This usually occurs when a unit is dropped or left in extreme temperatures or jammed it a glove box or console with things jammed against the screen. It could also occur if you are touching the screen as you start.

White "press dot" screen


The actual answer is to press the dots, but use a dull plastic tool that fits "within" the dot. Otherwise the width of your finger is too imprecise to calibrate the dots and screen.

Hope you, and others, get this and try it. It works. I just discovered it and did it, successfully after only about 10 presses.

It should go into Setup for Location, time Zone etc.
It also needed charging before you can use it.(You can charge it using typical USB cable connected to PC)

No gps signal


I have had my GPS( TOmTOM One) on Waiting for Signal for 2 weeks now and I finally fixed it.

My symptomtoms (word play) were no signal at open areas, when connected to Tom Tom Home it showed exactly where I was and worked through the PC but when disconnected back to the same thing.

I called Tom Tom CS and nothing, FLash did nothing, factory defaults nothing, and updating did nothing.

What I did:
I charged the unit completely.
I took a paperclip and while off pressed on the reset button at the bottom by SD slot. I held it there for 30 mississippi's.
I did not turn it on after letting go.
I went outside to my car (parked on roof of parking lot) turned it on and set it on my dash vertically.
I left and came back in 1 hour and wallaaaaa. It is working perfectly!

Let me know if this fixes it.
