Raymarine e-80 chart plotter keeps rebooting

Two weeks ago - The E-80 display would come up and display the chart but would then reboot itself. This happend most of the morning, with each reboot the e-80 would stay up a little longer. By noon it stayed up running the rest of the day.

Yesterday - When powering up the E-80 the logo screen comes up but that is it. It then reboots itself over and over, never makes it past the logo screen.

    I have a E-80 multifunction display and all of a sudden once is hooked to power it starts itself and the initial white screen appears flashing every second. The keys are not jammed ( it does it without the faceplate) and by holding the second key when powering up it still flashes the white screen. I will appreciate any help.

    We have the same problem with the e120 chart plotter, it keeps powering off, then powering on all of its own accord.  We have monitored the power in and it is steady, we have disconnected the radar,which we though might have been the culprit but the problem keeps coming back, we have sent one screen back to Raymarine had it checked out, and still it comes back.  We are now embarking on a full review of all the seatalk and instruments  but I just can't think why that would trigger the plotter to power down and reboot.  Anyone got any suggestions?

If you are experiencing problems with your C70, C80, C120, E80 or E120 display resetting itself, or randomly turning itself off, there are 2 troubleshooting procedures that may resolve the issue:
1. Ensure that none of the buttons are stuck under the edge of the display's front fascia.
When the Multifunction Display is first installed, or any time after the front fascia has been removed, it is very easy to get the edge of one or more of the rubber buttons trapped under the edge of the plastic fascia. This is particularly prone to happening if the snaps that secure the fascia to the display are not fully engaged around both the outside perimeter of the fascia, and the insider edge surrounding the LCD display.

E-Series display with soft key trapped under fascia.
You can free the buttons from under the edge of the fascia by applying pressure to them with a fingertip, and rotating your fingertip in a circular motion. When the button is properly through the fascia it should sit centered within its hole, and you should feel a positive "click" of the internal switch when pressing and depressing each button. If trapped buttons were found, releasing them will return the display to normal operation.
2. Reset the display.
Your display may require a reset which will erase any stored waypoints, routes and tracks.
If your MFD's menus are accessible:

Backup your personal data CompactFlash memory card. Please see Answer #1145, Backing up waypoint, routes and tracks on C and E-Series for complete instructions.
Once your data is backed up you can reset the display using this procedure:

  1. If your MFD's menus are accessible, perform a "Settings and Data" reset from the System Setup menu. Press the MENU key, then scroll down to the "System Setup" option, and toggle the track pad right.
  2. Scroll down to the "Settings and Data Reset" option and toggle the track pad right.
  3. Under the word "Factory Reset?" press the softkey corresponding to YES. The display will restart momentarily.
  4. The display should reboot into normal operating mode.
If your MFD's menus are not accessible:
You will not be able to backup your personal data. We can reset the display though using this procedure:
  1. Press and hold down the first soft key (next to the power button.)
  2. Keep holding the soft key down while the display reboots. A "Factory Reset" countdown will be displayed. Keep holding the first soft key until the countdown is complete.
  3. The display should reboot into normal operating mode.
Once your display has returned to normal operation you should check its operating software version, and upgrade to the latest version (if applicable.) The latest update for your model is 3.31. It will be displayed on the message that appears during start up. This is an important update because changes were made to the WAAS satellites and your E80 will not recognise the satellites without this update. Click this link to download the update: Raymarine V3.31 update.

    I have a C80 which had this cycling problem where it prevented a manual interrupt. I tried leaving the power applied to the device for 10 - 12 hours at which the cycling process halted and permitted manual control

Had the rebooting problem with my E120 - was extremely annyoing, since it would reboot out of the blue when underway - both screens independantly sometimes.
What solved it after many hours was simple: i had to turn off the "storm track" feature on my Sirius satellite weather on each screen and each page setting. Hate it.
Hope it solves your issues too.

What memory card does the 5505 take


CLICK HERE for all the info.
CLICK HERE for the Manual.

Your specific question's answer is on page 7 of the manual:

C-MAP™ chart cards have chart details required for navigating in a particular region. When a chart card is plugged in, the extra details automatically appear on the TRACKER chart display.

The TRACKER can use NT, NT+ and NT-MAX cards.

C-MAP™ user cards are used to store navigation data. Each user card expands the TRACKER memory and allows the data to be transferred to another TRACKER easily (see section 14).

Note: The older 5 volt user cards are not supported.

My Garmin Nuvi 265W will not turn on. A couple of weeks ago when I booted it up, it had reset back to like new. Asking me to do set up and such. It's been cool since then. Today I shut it off at 5pm and...


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Tom Tom sat nav takes ages to get a GPS signal now.


Think I have sorted the problem out. I read some of your readers' solutions and it was mentioned that it may be advisable to log onto the GPS update. So, I installed my disc which came with the pack and followed the instructions to download the GPS update (and also took the opportunity to download other updates which took some time). Anyway, used the sat nav this morning and so far, it appears to be working normally now and the signal comes on in seconds!

How do you get the gps to show depth and markers on the water?


It depends on what model you have. Most chartplotters require a chip with regional chart data. Most Lowrance models use Navionics charts. If you have a chip in the GPS, go to the map screen and press the "menu" key. Somewhere in the map setup menu will be a field where you can specify which chart to display.

For example a Navionics gold chart may cover the entire east coast, but it is broken down into a few sub regions. If you are boating in New England you would select the sub region labeled Northeast. Some of the earlier models didn't name the regions, they used model number for each region such as "XL904G". In that case your best bet is to try each one until you can view the charts in your area. Zoom in to 1/2 mile scale to make sure you can see charts.

If you have done all that and still can't see the chart details, there is also a setting in the map setup menu that allows you to set the level of detail. Make sure it is set to normal, more, or most. If you see a declutter setting on the setup menu, try setting it to off.

With the charts page up, start by hitting the find ship softkey at the bottom of the screen.If that find the boat on the chart all is good.If not you need to check you have a GPS fix. Go to GPS screen and see you are seeing satalites.
If all is good when you hit find ship and the boat disappears again from chart while underway you will need to go into the chart setup menu and see if the screen amplifier is turned off. If off turn on.This is first place to start. Hope that helps

Make absolutely sure that all of the buttons are clear (not stuck). After that, begin by unplugging any external interfaces (including the chart card) one by one to determine if one of those is the culprit.
