I recommend upgrading the system software of your GPSMAP 545s to the latest 5.30 version. Find directions and the download link here.

  1. Click on "Download" and choose to save the file to your computer.
  2. Choose a location where you can easily find the file, such as the 'My Documents' folder or 'C:\'.
  3. Once the download is complete, go to the location where you saved the file.
  4. Double-click on the downloaded file. This will automatically extract the files to C:\Garmin and run a program to transfer the software update to an SD card.
  5. Load the SD card into your GPSMAP 545s and turn it on to replace the system software of your unit.
I hope that helps.

Raymarine smartpilot x-5. The fluxgate compass is some 45 - 60 degrees out from the boat compass. I have tried to recalibrate but this does not solve the problem. Any ideas?


First of all - is the boat compass correct? How does it align with COG? Secondly, do you have a magnetic field that interfere with the fluxgate? To test for this you can use the compass on your smartphone or a handheld compass, move about in the boat and keep the phone/compass aligned with the keel. If the heading drifts in the area where you have your fluxgate today, move it.

My IPad worked well with Navionics untill few days ago, then following problem appeared: when running my boat with trolling speed ( like 2 mph) the screen shows my position on map with the red arrow and...


Go into Settings - Navionics App and make sure that Mobile Data is enabled and also Background App Refresh. Finally, Location set to Always. It sounds like it is not being updated, but just setting your position on opening.

It is not a particularly good app and very basic although I have not tried the Paid version. I have a Humminbird 998 HD Side Imaging and the Navionics Mappind SD Card which gives much better results.

Charting a route on water


Hi, a waypoint is used to mark a point of interest for location purposes only whether it be for fish, hazards or a boat ramp etc. it is not intended to replace common sense. Your navionics card if purchased will show land masses, shallow waters, channel markers and known hazards. Regards Phil.

Is it compatible 3.5 HP engine with the boat? (mariner 4) if yes , when i used %30 of power just alone back side go down and can not control properly . engine is TOHATSU M 3.5 S


Your motor is too large.

For the Intex Mariner 4 Intex recommend an absolute maximum of 3HP (2,2kW) and the motor must not weigh more than 40lb (18,2kg).

Those limits assume that you are using the Intex motor mount kit (Part No. 10658) and that the boat is correctly loaded and inflated.

In reality and from experience I would personally recommend 2HP maximum power and to keep the motor as lightweight as possible. Although the Intex Mariner 4 can take a motor mount, it's really a rowboat and is not suited to using a motor for extended periods, but just as a convenient tender to a larger boat it's fine.

Hello LJones0455. From your detailed attempts there are few options. Position the transducers one foward one aft. Connect the negitives of the battiers to the boat still route both positive & negitive wiring to all devices. Check the continunity of your transducers include flexing while ohming. Let me know of the results.
