Hi Marius,

Not being a nautical person, I can't give you any advice with the following exception: join yahoo group SPECIFIC to your radio Make/Model, they will send you all the info required, plus you can download manuals, diagrams and other goodies.

I hope this helps you.

Standard horizon 155c not acquiring signal

If the signal is good statement seems to imply that it is working, perhaps this is my misinterpretation of what you mean by this.
Signal refers to the abi;ity to connect to satellites
4 are requied for triangulation.
If the unit is fully charged and not connecting , then it is quite possible that the unit has a damaged SIIRF chip or whatever chip was used in your model to acquire satellite connection. The cost of repair is costly, it means total replacement of the M/Board.
Never start car with the unit connected into DC car power, spikes will damage the chip

Can't get GPS position fix - I've turned on the satellite receivers, gone outside...... any ideas?

make sure you have good batteries fitted, some batteries will not be strong enough to allow a good connection.

other than that you have a faulty chip and that's expensive repair
