The issue is related to the antenna, either bad connection, low voltage or faulty gps. Start by checking the voltage supplied to the antenna (most probably through SeaTalk from the plotter), if you find this to be 11V or bellow - beef it up by adding external 12V. You can also check the wiring, if all looks ok - it is time to get a new gps antenna. Raymarine has a retrofit pack for the new RS130 which also includes SeaTalk ng converter. With some luck it's only the power...

SOURCE: GPS antenna

If your old antena is a Seatalk or NMEA antena you can use it for your C80
If you GPS antenna is older than five year change it.

I have a Raymarine C80, when I turn it on all I see is a white screen sometime with some line running from top to bottom


It is a bad connection in the jockey board, your local technical dealer should be able to fix this easly.

What is the connection path from Garmin 72 to raymarine c80, using NMEA 1083


I'm taking this as you want to send the gps information to your C80 not receive from the C80? If this is the case the brown wire on the garmin is the nmea data out +. The Black wire is considered nmea out neg (-) of the garmin. So hook the garmin brown to the white on the raymarine. Hook the black from the garmin to the green on the raymarine. That means you are outputting lat/long info to the raymarine from the garmin.

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.

Raymarine looses GPS fix


A software upgrade will do a world of good for the unit, however it may not take care of your GPS fix issue. Usually when you have satellites showing and no fix, that indicates a bad antenna. Check the LED indicator on the antenna, it should be green. The RS125 has a connector plug on the antenna end so it is nice and easy to buy a new one and give it a try. The software is free and a good start.....and yes you need to do a reset after the upgrade by holding the first soft key as you power on the unit. It will give you a factory reset countdown. Simply hold that soft key until it is done and begins the reboot.

DSM Port on RayMarine C80


The only other way would be to change the PSU board in the unit. The connector back plane is connected to this board.I am a authorized Raymarine repairer. I could drop ship you the board from Raymarine and email you an instruction manual on how to change it.I am not located in the US so shipping the unit to me for repair becomes expensive.You can also check with your dealer in Seattle first but I do not think that he can buy the board from Raymarine. Raymarine policy on repairing product is different from country to country. We are on the other side of the world so Raymarine allows us to repair there product as it is to costly to ship it all back to there repair facility in the states or the UK.If your unit is still under factory warranty then if you open it it will void the warranty.So then you would have to send it to Raymarine. With a diagram if you are natural a technical person you will not have a problem changing the board.If you are technically challenged I would say send it to Raymarine. Hope this helps.

GPS antenna


If it is an RS 120 or an RS112 antenna you do not need to change it.These are both active antennas in other words they do all the gps computing in the unit itself. You need to look at the wire from the antenna. If it is a coax cable(2 wire) it will not work.If it is 3 or 4 wires it will work. If 3 wire (red ,silver yellow) just hook up color for color.If 4 wire you are going to have to figure out the wiring for it from the units wiring diagram.That could be a big enough pain that you might be inclined to change to the new antenna. If you wire the new RS125 antenna you must wire it to the seatalk buss. The seatalk wires are Red Silver and Yellow.The wire from the RS125 are red yellow silver green and brown.Wire as follow to your sea talk cable.Yellow to Yellow, red to red , silver to silver, green to red, brown to silver.
Hope this helps.
