Question about Raymarine C70 GPS Receiver

Open Question

Lost data Hi my c70 unit shows land sea and coordinates, however it does not tell me where I am. Is there a setting I need to turn on to show the names of the areas on the chart plotter? I can figure it out by the lat and long but I am pretty sure that one point, this unit used to identify the area it was in. Thanks for any and all help

Hi Matt,

There is a feature in these chartplotters called "Plotter Mode" that is often misunderstood and causes the exact problem you describe.

Press menu.....chart setup.....and scroll to the bottom until you see Plotter Mode in the list of options. It should be set in the OFF position.

If you have more than one display networked onboard check the setting in each one invividually.

What Plotter Mode does is allows the chartplotter system to access range scales not supported on the chart. It is not normally used for map-based navigation but more so for chartless electronic plotting (it can display routes, waypoints and track-recorder breadcrumbs.) open-ocean cruising, or for ultra-precise GPS operations (like a precision anchor drop, finding a very specific location etc. When plotter mode is on you can zoom in to a very, very small working area. The indicator it is enable is the cross-hatch background on the screen, the lack of map information, and the NO CHART DATA watermark on the screen.

I've had the same problem. before replacing the antenna, try to reset the antenna by removing power to the Raystar 120. Disconnect power by either turning off all batteries or disconnecting the red wire from the antenna at the point where it enters the junction box for the chartplotter. This action effectively removes all memory from the antenna and resets it to factory settings. There is a lithianium battery in GPS antenna that holds memory data in the antenna. Disconnecting the power to the antenna for a few seconds clears the memory.

This is exactly what I did and when I turned the chartplotter back on, my Raystar 120 immediately began working again.

SOURCE: My Raymarine C80 CHart plotter won't load.

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.

Tip

Learn About an Aircraft, Part 1


First we'll cover panel instruments and how they're used.

Familiarize yourself with the six pack.The six instruments in the center of the instrument panel used mostly for IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) and are always in the following order:

  • Top left: The "Airspeed Indicator" shows aircraft airspeed, in knots. (nautical miles) per hour. It also displays the airspeed limitations in white, green, yellow, and red arcs.

  • Top center: The "Artificial Horizon" Has a small aircraft symbol that depicts the aircraft required attitude,for level flight, and shows whether the aircraft is climbing or descending, as well as the angle of bank.

  • Top right: The "Altimeter" a three hand clock type instrument that shows altitude of the aircraft in feet MSL, (feet above mean sea level).

  • Lower left: The "Turn and Bank Indicator" is a dual instrument which tells your angle of bank and whether you are in a coordinated turn. Sometimes called the "Needle Ball". For straight and level flight, keep the wings level and the ball centered.

  • Lower center:The "Heading Indicator". A stable gyro instrument that shows the aircraft's current compass heading. Use the Control Wheel to keep the aircraft on the desired heading.

  • Lower right: The "Vertical Speed Indicator" which tells how fast you are losing or gaining altitude, in feet per minute. Keep this instrument at zero to maintain level flight.

On google plus it allows you to share your location with whom ever you choose, so my husband and I share our location with each other, but for some reason his is always wrong, and it always shows him in...


Hi Brenda
You need an App that will give you your current GPS coordinates.
Install an App Like MotionX or similar. Check the Latitude & Longitude or Better still the UTM Easting & Northing (same thing but UTM is the new digital coordinates & is easier)
Compare one phone coordinates with the other phone.
they should be almost identical if your in same location.
Otherwise check your phone SETTINGS for GPS & how it's set up.
Even a standard Garmin GPS tracker (which I use for prospecting) can be set fro the wrong side of the world. Usually its set for WGS 84 or 94 & UTM. I have seen people set up for the northern hemisphere when they are in the southern hemisphere.
Also, you said that your husbands settings never change. Well... it's GPS either turned off or broken.
I also use my "Find My Phone" App to check on the wife.... and she's on her way home... so GoodLuck
Cheers
Trevor
PS
Poor choice of Brands.... but thats another story.

Can you show how to convert pola to rectangular o


Hello,
To avoid errors make sure that the angle unit is THE ONE required by your problem. To verify or to change the angle unit press [SIFT][MODE] and select [3: Deg] for degrees, [4:Rad] for radians, or [5:Grad] for grads.

Convert from rectangular to polar

[SHIFT][+] (Pol) . Screen displays Pol(
You enter the X-coordinate, and the Y coordinate separated by a comma, then you close the parenthesis and press [=].

Exemple: Polar coordinate of the point (1,1)
Pol( 1, 1) gives
r=1.414213562 (square root of 2)
θ=45

Here is how you enter it
Press [SHIFT][MODE][2:LineIO]
[SHIFT][POL] 1 [SHIF] [,] 1 [)] [=]

The screen displays
Pol(1,1)
r= 1.414213562
θ= 45


Convert from polar to rectangular coordinates

Rec ( radius, angle) =

Exemple: Recatngular coordinates of (r=3, θ=60°)
[SHIFT][Rec] 3 [SHIFT][,] 60 [ ) ] [=]
The screen displays
Rec(3,60)
X= 1.5
Y= 2.598076211


Hope it helps.

Why is my coordinates off by 50-80ft. why? Side by side comparision of another gps shows my gps is not accurate.What do I do?


Hi,
Your GPS is accurate for that brand. I have a Lowrance I Finder Pro. We could both put in the same coordinates and come up in different locations. It is just the way the different GPS's get their signal from the satellite. I use my GPS most of the time for a sport called Geocaching and so when I am given coordinates and don't find the thing I am looking for I so about a 30ft-60ft search around where my GPS took me. So yours is basically doing the same thing. I wouldn't worry about it......it's just the way the different models receive the signal that thows them off a bit. If you went out and got a set of coordinates and then I put those same coords into my GPS I would arrive at a completely different location as you. All is well....no need to worry.

The animation is telling you to insert a data card, which should have come with the device. If you have already inserted the data card (make sure there isn't a blank in the slot) then the unit is faulty and needs to be returned.

ETrex Legend, GPS Coordinates from Google Earth Don't Match Basemap


Are you sure you're using the exact same format on GoogleEarth and your GPS?

GoogleEarth: save the waypoints in a KML file (NOT KMZ) to your computer, naming it appropriately.
Go to http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/gpsbabel/ and convert the KML file to a GPX file, using their converter. They will present you with a file to download. Download it and send those waypoints to your unit and you'll be set to go.

Most of the NUVI units will show you your coordinates, but none show you your altitude, to my knowledge. When you ask if they can be used as a "handreceiver", again, the NUVIs can be set to "Pedestrian" mode and used hand held.
