SOURCE: ear Sirs, I have problem to

Hi Arne,

What I understand is you might not have gone through the user manual for C70 as its clearly mentioned about the settings. Once when you have it set up correct then we can come to troubleshooting mode whether something is wron or not.

I would therefore request you to take out some time and go through the manual first and then try connecting or setting it up.

I have seen this on the Quest units also. The problem is most likely in the flip up antenna connection. If you or know someone who is fairly comfortable in soldering small electronic connections it is a fairly easy fix. First, you can verify the problem is in fact the built in flip up antenna but connecting an external patch type antenna to the antenna port on the back. If the problem goes away, then the problem is definitely in the built in antenna.
If you lay the GPS display side down with the flip up antenna to your right, take a small phillips screwdriver and removed the two screws holding the endcap in place. Gently remove the endcap and CAREFULLY pull the antenna horizontally away from the GPS unit. Once you have done this, you can see the antenna is actually two pieces. With a small jewelers flat blade screwdriver, GENTLY pry in between where the two portions of the antenna shell meet and separate the two pieces of the antenna shell. Once this is done, it will expose the antenna circuit board and the small brass looking antenna connector. If the problem is in fact with the antenna connector, it may be loose or come loose in the process of prying the antenna shell apart. Use a low wattage soldering iron and solder the connector back in place being careful not to bridge the solder points. Reassemble the antenna and reinstall it on your GPS. Again, if you are not comfortable working with small electronic solder connections or don't have the proper equipment, get someone who is.

We lose fix info. on the c120and the Auto pilot has no display. The problem is intermittent


This sounds like a problem with the receiver. If you can not get GPS fix (sometimes) you will have to start looking at the GPS antenna and cable. If the unit is new check out the location of the antenna. As with anything that works with satellites it need a clear view of the sky to fix onto the "birds". A GPS connects to numerous "birds" at a time, so ensure that the antenna has a wide angle view of the sky. If it is old you will have to start looking for connection problems. This is usually the case when the fault is intermittent. Check for possible water damage and loose or less than adequate connections. Also ensure the cable is in a good condition.

If you're using a raystar 125 antenna, you will have to power the red wire + and the shield wire - separately. Sl70's don't provide power over seatalk. Also make sure your green and brown wires are properly connected. If it's a 120 just power the red and sheild(black) and leave off the all except the yellow that's your data. If you still have nothing may probably have a problem in the antenna itself.

Raynav 300 the gps is not working


The GPS antenna with the 300 is not a GPS receiver unit like all the later Raymarine units and is no longer made. However the unit will accept input from a GPS receiver with Seatalk output. So you could use a 112, 120 or 125 receiver.

you should see it now
There is a known hardware bug in the Garmin 600 series relating to the detection of the connection of an external antenna. The GPS is supposed to do this automatically and when it detects an external antenna plugged in it switches out the internal antenna. Unfortunately, this circuitry doesn't work correctly in some versions of the unit and sometimes it get's comfused and thinks there is an external antenna connected when there is not. This causes the behavior you describe because, for all practical purposes, there is no antenna connected.

Garmin can fix this and they've been known to fix it even on units that are out of warranty. There is a fix that can be done by someone with the right equipment and know-how which requires disassembling the unit and bypassing the antenna switch. Not to be attempted by anyone not experienced in micro surface mount PCB re-work.

Raytheon rl70


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.

Raymarine Raychart 520 Interface to PC


you will need to hook up direct. Seatalk wont handle a waypoint download, but the chartplotter will accept the data directly into the NMEA in port. All other data, like wind depth and latlon are handled by seatalk
