Question about Raymarine GPS

1 Answer

I have a Raymarine C80 installed on a Chris Craft Cataline 23. Thru-hull transducer. No radar. I have a chart cartridge which is correctly installed. My problem is with the chartplotter function where the unit seems to randomly "lose" the ability to display any chart details or contour lines. When zoomed in to the range I would normally use, no details are visible and shoreline looks like it was drawn with a ruler. The electronic tech at my dealer toyed with it a little and it worked fine. Next time I got on the boat it was back to the same problem.

    The problem can occur while the boat is at the dock (no vibrations or pounding from being run) and has not been resolved by a master reset.

Sounds like you may have a loose or stretched internal wire or possibly loose solder joint. Has the system been updated or upgraded lately?

    I do believe it is either an internal system fault and will have to be upgraded, or there is a bad sensor.

My marine speed transducer needs to be replaced. I have a Beneteua 351 which is 16 years old. I have cleaned the transducer several times and then reinstalled. It will work for a couple of minutes and then...


Yes. You need to make sure you get the same transducer though. With you system being that old, you may have a transducer that is old where there is not a direct replacement. You need to make sure you get the correct transducer. You may need to get a "flapper" kit to update your housing to the new style.

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.

I need a new power cable for a raymarine DS500X fishfinder. Where is a good place to buy?


Contact Raymarine or your nearest Raymarine dealer. Raymarine normally has those things on their website although it's a bit cryptic to find sometimes.

Connect Ratheon RL 70 to Raymarine E80


The two devices can share Nav data only. No radar, Sonar or Chart will be shared.
Hook the RL70 and the E80 together on SeaTalk and all data will be shared both ways. Alternatively, it could be done with NMEA 0183, which is directional, or you could also translate the RL70 data to NMEA 2000 and share it that way. As long as you have all Raymarine equipment, you are home free using a three wire Seatalk connection, with only two hooked up, Yellow and Bare, color to color.
Remember, this will share Nav Data only.

Raymarine ds500x brand new works good but will give false bottom readings occasionally corrects itself fairly quickly 30 seconds to two minutes wondering why it does this and how to correct it


If the transducer is not correctly mounted this may happen due to air, etc. If the unit never gives a depth reading that looks like dashes
( - - ) then there is likely nothing wrong with it aside from the transducer placement.

My raymarine ds600x is losing bottom at 120 feet...water temperature is at 220. I have a thru hull transducer...Im wondering if my ducer is fouled up with marine growth or is it a bad ducer or head unit.....


The depth loosing bottom would certainly indicate that you may have growth fouling the transducer, however the sea temp 220 degrees indicates possibly a different problem. Start by being sure the transducer is squeaky clean and see what that does for you.

Depth sounder


the transducer has to be in the water or attached to the inside of the hull if fiberglass with no air between the hull and the transducer. It doesn't transmit thru air.

Scanner self test result...is display comms/fail /raymarine c80 18" dome


Chances are that your scanner cable may be bad. Check inside the dome and make sure that the little wires going into the black connector from the radar cable are seated correctly and all the way in. This can cause tons of problems. Also check to make sure that your pins in the back of you unit are not corroded or broken off.
