Question about Raymarine E120 GPS Receiver
Sometimes the GPS will not pick up satellites for hours after booting up unit, for no explainable external reason. I have heard that these units can have a software problem and if so, how to fix it?
Depending on how your equipment was installed, your GPS receiver may not be on the same electrical circuit as the E120. I see lots of these GPS receivers that are wired to be "always-on" so even when you shut down the E120 display head, the GPS receiver (probably the RS125) is still on.
You may want to see if this is the case on your boat and if it is always-on, change it so it powers on and off with the other gear. This allows the CPU in the GPS receiver to reboot from scratch at the start of every trip.

Had same problem on trip down the pacific west coast. Best solution is to replace your GPS antenna to the 175 ( It is a problem on the 120)and upgrade the software. If this is not feasible, shutting the unit down for about 10 to 15 mins. sometimes dumps the GPS data overload. and allows FIX re-acquisition.
