Hello,

If you have the Raystar 120 GPS antennae, it's time to replace it with the Raystar 125. The 120 is not compatible or upgradeable to/with the new GPS satellites. Contact Raystar for the upgrade.

Nevertheless, try rebooting it the next time it looses the fix. Pushing the Restart does not reboot it. You have to turn off the power to the antenna and then add power back to reboot it. This almost always fixes the problem.

Take care.

Before you buy a new one if that is a raytheon raystar unit there is a lithium battery inside the unit check that first thats all you may have to replace.

your antenna is probably original and obsolete see if you have a RayStar 120, if so, it is junk. The RayStar 125 is plug and play for you and sells around 300. Your GPS is a self contained receiver, that means it uses 12 V and output computer language. If you have no power to the seatalk antenna, you get nothing. If it is intermittent as you describe, 90% chanace it is the antenna, (mushroom or puck). 847-746-0100

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!

My sony wega keeps cutting off then coming back .


a couple of years old can be a long time:

has the TV been on 24\7

It's the amount of hours that matters..

electrolytic capacitors typically last 3000 to 5000 hours....

Special "long life" caps last close to 7000
but the caps in most consumer electronics, even broadcast equipment 3-5K hours.

Dim dashboard lights and problem starting


Could be a loose or dirty battery connection, poor battery, or alternator. Check all the cables and connections to your starter. Clean your battery posts. Have your alternator and battery checked. It sounds like you are either running off just the battery or just the alternator. One of them is not right.

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.
