I have the Ray marine A65, the R12 GPS sensor no longer works.. & they no longer make this part. I called the Tech Dept. a at Ray marine & they said I could use the NMEA 8013/ Digital Yacht/105. I ordered it from defender and it doesn't come with the connector (5prong cable). None of the cable colors match, for splicing. Is there any inside info out there?

Anything Raytheon is going to be tough now since it is no longer supported by Raymarine. You may still be best to start by calling Raymarine's tech dept to see what they say. If no luck, your next best try is probably EbaY.
Probably a bad printed circuit board, just had to send mine in to have it repaired. When I hit the power button, I did hear a beep, but then nothing displayed. Mine was still under warrenty, so don't know the repair cost if yours is not.
My Raymarine A65 was so bad in daylight I could not read the screen. Used Never Dull polish from ACE hardware, similar to Brasso, and it took every scratch and cloudy mark off the screen. The can documentation includes glass as one of the items it?s safe to use on. Looks new again, Good Luck, Paul
If you have a loose RS12 try moving it around the deck and see if it make a diffrence.There might be something knocking it out.
If it is doing a cold start it cold take up to 10 min to get a fix. Once it has a fix it will aquire the next time much quicker.RS12's are mostly rock solid and get great fixes.
Also set the time up on the A65 to what you are at ,IE, universal time minus 5 if you are on the east coast of the US.Time set up is under the units menu. Hope this helps
Was the engine running when it shut off? How was the voltage at the time it failed? The A65 will shut down if the voltage drops below 11.2 volts.
Another common cause would be corrosion on the plug where it plugs into the back of the display, or the terminal connectors that attach it to the boat's power supply.
It could also be a bad crimp on the terminal connectors. Make sure connectors are the right size for the wire and that they are marine grade, such as Ancor brand connectors. I also recommend heat shrink style connectors,
I have not heard of any software issues for that model so I am betting it's a wiring issue. However, there is an update available from Raymarine. There were changes made to the WAAS satellites and the update helps it recognize the new satellites. You can download it for free from Raymarine. Copy it onto a blank CF card and plug it into the card slot on your GPS. When you turn the unit on it will prompt you on how to proceed with the update. It will fix any known software gliches at the same time.
I hope this answer helps. Please reply if you have any questions about my response.
When the engine starts, there is a voltage drop as the starters crank, followed by a power surge as the alternators kick in and the voltage comes back up.
Ferrites are only there to prevent RF (Radio Wave) interference from other onboard devices.
You should either:
-add an isolated battery to the boat to service only your electronics. That way it is unaffected by the starters.
-There are several devices on the market like Newmar Power's "Start-Gurad" that automatically switch electronics to backup power during engine start. They work great and the electronics don't skip a beat.
