Question about Raymarine GPS
I have a Raymarine E80 chartplotter, an S1 autopilot with an 8002 control head, a Raymarine 2kw radar scanner. Also connected to the sysem are a Raymarine Lifetag man overboard alarm, an S100 remote controller for the autopilot, an Icom AIS receiver, and various B&G Network instruments. At the beginning of an overnight passage the goto functions worked properly. I was able to set a waypoint and steer to it automatically as well as follow a route. During the night the goto functions ceased working. I can enter waypoints or build routes, but I cannot follow them. There does not seem to be an MOB point active, and there is no lead line from the ship icon to any waypoint. All other functions seem to perform normally. Does anyone have any idea what might be the cause or solution to this problem?
" During the night the goto functions ceased working" (sic) Have you "Reset" this unit. This indeed sounds like a software problem, with either the MAPS, themselves, Or, the units Operating System & I wonder if a return to a reset state may not clear this "Glitch" ? Now if this doesn't clear it, then all one can really do, is reinstall the operating system, from either a CD/DVD or from the manufacturers website.
Your manual above.

This seam to be a issue of antenna..it actually works but it do not receive any information to take a guide line and perform the actions..see maybe there are physical damages or something is obstructing ..the function ..
and cause it is such a vital function ...try what I sugested and ask for a second opinion if it doesn't seam to be this...just refuse my answer or ..vote under maximum..to get another opinion ...But it is pretty obvious that the issue is the communication with the satellite ..check the power on devices..also ...I mean external ones..
