Question about Simrad CE44 GPS Receiver

I cannot get a position on my Simrad CE33 chartplotter/sounder

I cannot get a position on my Simrad CE33 chartplotter even though my C-Map card is fine (I tested it) and I can pick up 5 satellites on my GPS (my antenna is fine). When I turn on the system, it tries to determine a position, seems unable to, and then system reboots and tries again. It will keep doing this until I shut it down.

    Thanks for your reply.



    I've actually tried to do both, but neither worked. It is still unable to determine position and keeps rebooting.



    Someone told me I may need a software update?



    Any other ideas?

You will have to update the maps. There are downloads on company sites and others as well.

Ensure that the external position to be OFF, refer to manual below. See interface display in [MENU],7,2

Try resetting the Chart Plotter to factory settings. Use the Delete Memory and Factory Preset options as described in section 9 of the user manual below:

Simrad CE33, I have only a blue screen when I switch it on


First thing to do is remove all cables and charts from the machine except the power cable. Try powering on and see what happens. If the same issue occurs it sounds like a boot code failure has occurred. Unfortunately, if that is the case those machines are no longer supported by Simrad and I would recommend looking around ebay or craigslist for another.

Where can i get memory battery for simrad ce30 chart plotter


There should be a model number printed/stamped onto the battery. Put this number into Google and yuo should have a list of sources. One of the local battery replacement places (like batteries Plus) can match it up or order one for you.

I have a Simrad CE33 GPS/fishfinder. It has a black spot on the screen and keeps growing.. What can do to resolve this.I


Most likely the unit needs the entire display replaced and moisture may have played a role in this.

Bad display depending on cost of unit may mean buying a new one.

Trackfish 6600 stops and starts again by himself many times in a few minutes; first screen map thouthand miles away from real boat position !


Try a factory reset - that worked for me when my Northstar Explorer 660 stopped by itself again and again. You find this reset commando by pressing MENU twice and then under Systems menu, if I remember it correctly. There is also a RAM Clear commando. This is done by holding the MENU button pressed when the GPS is switched off. Keep it pressed while switchin on the GPS, still holding the button pressed until the RAM Clear menu appears. You will probably loose all waypoints etc. by doing this so try Factory Reset as your first alternative. Good Luck! // Jonas, Sweden

GPS/Fishfinder keeps dropping and restarting


Do a software upgrade to the CE33 unit and then a master reset by unplugging the power cable , then press and hold PWR and CLR buttoms while plugging back the power cable. Wait a couple of second while the software reloads and should run smooth....
NOTICE: All the previous data as routes, waypoints, etc that you had will be lost by the master reset.
