Hi again,

Appreciate the update. Incidentally, most batteries for this purpose are Lithium 3 volts, coin size. Often, battery removal also performs a reset if not replaced immediately.

Though my money is really on the firmware.

Cheers.

Why is there a flashing question mark on my gps. and why isn't it locating satlellites.. is it because I don't have a memory card in it.


No it has nothing to do with the memory card. The question mark means it cannot find satellites and it does not know where you are at. Because this is a chart plotter your antenna may have gone bad or the wiring for this device may have gone bad. check the wiring for it here:

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.

Data cards for Fununo 1850w


Furuno just stopped producing these models about a year ago. They use a special chart card. You can still purchase the cards from Navionics or C-map if you need to. I will tell you from experience that you should get your internal battery changed out if you havent done so already to keep from losing your settings and waypoints. The dealer will have to save them for you though and put them back on. Furuno made a GP7000 to replace this one and it's uses SDcards and is nothing like the rest of Furuno's product line. The best replacement for this unit is the Garmin GPSMAP 700 series. You can use your old furuno transducer if you have one (with an adapter plug). This garmin unit also has a built in GPS or you can use an external one. The 700 series will be shipped in April. Check out Garmin's website or mid-shore electronics.

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.
