Question about Raymarine C120 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My Raymarine C 120 GPS intermittently stops working.

MyRaymarine C 120 gps intermittently stops working. I lose the ship icon on the screen. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. Sometime it comes back on its own on the same boat trip and sometimes it stays off the entire boat trip. I have checked the wire and cable connections and have found no issues. I have checked the sensor for moistue/corrosion and found no issues. Any ideas?

I had to replace a GPS antenna unit with cable. Sometimes, during bad weather or strong sun, I lost FIX on satellites. Cleaning the top of antenna did not help. Unit from Ebay was also a junk. Get a new one after testing display on a friend boat.

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.

My Raystar 120 GPS keeps losing its fix.... the fix comes b ack a few minutes later, but then i lose it again. I have tried a cold restart, but the problem persists. Ideas?


Guys, most likely the litium battery is eol. Buy a new litium 3 volts battery for 3-4 euro's with soldering points . Use a pair of scissors, note the plus and minus side of the poles and carefully cut out the battery leaving enough metal to solder a replacement battery. Solder the replacement battery, and the problem is fixed. You're ready for another 6 years of fun saving 300 USD for a new GPS!
