    I have intermitten problems getting a fix with my Neptune. Last time I tried it never did get a fix, so I think my problem is getting worse. I would appreciate any feedback. I did send it in to Sitex and they made some "upgrades" but I don't think it really helped much.

It souds like your GPS is bad. It is either a RV16 or a GPK10. If the GPS is about 1 inch in width then it is a RV16. If the GPS is about 3 inches in width then it is a GPK10. Both GPS units are available through SITEX. 727-576-5995 x139

Lowrance LMS522c transducer

Probably not. Usually the transducer is made specifically for the head unit it is designed for. More often than not, transducers are not interchangeable, particularly across brands. Also, for best results, you really want to install the transducer that came with your new lowrance. That will give you the best results and sonar clarity.

Hope that helps!

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.

Garmin etrex legend

I had this problem today, updated the software, now the unit seems to be working perfectly. The unit "crashes" (single line down screen center) as soon as it get enough satelites to work with WAAS.

Go to Garmin site for software updates. Download and install the WebUpdater. Once or unit is hooked up to your computer and you have internet access, the software will download and update your GPS with the latest software fixes. I had software Version 3.7. For the Legend, Version 3.9 fixes the problems with WAAS.

Computer cable

I don't know the answer to this because I am looking for the same thing.This is the answer I got from Si-Tex: You are going to need a cable, cble-6pf-sit. This cable will plug into your GPS-90, on the other end is bare wires. You are going to wire this into the pc somehow. (somehow?)That's the part i'm interested in the most! I ordered the cable can find nothing that shows how to wire it. I assume that it's wired to a db9 serial connector but have no idea what the pinout connections are. If you find out please let me know.
