Question about Raymarine Boating

1 Answer

I have a Raymarine RL70 radar/Chart Plotter that was working when it was pulled out (New system was installed) and given to me. When i apply 12VDC to the RL70 head i do net get any response from the head. The screen doesnt light, like there is no power connected. i verified i had 12VDC at the connector , which was directly connected to the battery. ANY ideas on what i should try??

    So if the head is directly connected to the battery or 12VDC source it should turn on. i should get "something" on the screen?

Open the unit and check that the power reaches the control board and the inverters.

    The screen should at least light up if the power gets in the head unit.

My Raymarine C80 CHart plotter won't load.


Check to see if this is a power issue by connecting to shore power and fully charging your batteries overnight with instruments off. While still connected to shore power, with batteries fully charged, turn on C80 navigation system. If the loading screen comes on and does not reset, then try holding down the button immediately to the right of the red power button for at least 3 seconds to see if the system re-boots.

Connect Ratheon RL 70 to Raymarine E80


The two devices can share Nav data only. No radar, Sonar or Chart will be shared.
Hook the RL70 and the E80 together on SeaTalk and all data will be shared both ways. Alternatively, it could be done with NMEA 0183, which is directional, or you could also translate the RL70 data to NMEA 2000 and share it that way. As long as you have all Raymarine equipment, you are home free using a three wire Seatalk connection, with only two hooked up, Yellow and Bare, color to color.
Remember, this will share Nav Data only.

C120 displays NO DATA SOURCE in the radar section of the screen. ohns resistance test checked out. what else can it be?


1. you must have the latest software 4.29 the new scanner dont work with the old Software.
2. Be shure that you have really put in the connector of the cable inside the plotter its not so easy.
3.
try the plotter on an nother boat with an working system than you will know if its a problem with the antena or Plotter

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.

Replacing an RL-70 with an RL 70-CRC


I did exactly what you wish to do a couple of years ago. It was a 5 minute job, cut out the same except the new unit needs a little more space behind and it was a plug for plug swap. Works great and swaps data between the matching chart plotter to give chart overlay on the radar

Hi Matt,

There is a feature in these chartplotters called "Plotter Mode" that is often misunderstood and causes the exact problem you describe.

Press menu.....chart setup.....and scroll to the bottom until you see Plotter Mode in the list of options. It should be set in the OFF position.

If you have more than one display networked onboard check the setting in each one invividually.

What Plotter Mode does is allows the chartplotter system to access range scales not supported on the chart. It is not normally used for map-based navigation but more so for chartless electronic plotting (it can display routes, waypoints and track-recorder breadcrumbs.) open-ocean cruising, or for ultra-precise GPS operations (like a precision anchor drop, finding a very specific location etc. When plotter mode is on you can zoom in to a very, very small working area. The indicator it is enable is the cross-hatch background on the screen, the lack of map information, and the NO CHART DATA watermark on the screen.
