Raymarine RL70CRC GPSRadar

I have recently been having a problem with my CMap Cards seems the charts is not recognized by the unit. sometimes is shows correctly mostly the unit turns on and will not show any chart details as if not card is in the reader. Sometimes it is working correclty but when I change the range or hit another soft key button the unit resets to same problem, chart? Very frustrating and could be dangerous if it happens at a bad time. Has anyone seen this. I have tried doing a full reset of the unit, cleaning the card contacts. Could it be some kind of fault in the wiring or the connection box? The data boxes seem to be showing correct position and heading etc. Radar work fine? Any help diagnosing would be appreciated.

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.

It could indeed be the "Connection" I would check these out properly, but with such a "Mission Critical" device I for one wouldn't muck arround, and get it back to the manufacturers and have it "Serviced"

Charts won't load on raymarine e80 chart plotter

If you are having trouble loading charts on your Raymarine E80 chartplotter, there are several things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
1. Check the chart card: Make sure that the chart card is inserted correctly and that it is compatible with your chartplotter. Some chartplotters require specific types of chart cards, so check the user manual or contact the manufacturer to ensure compatibility.
2. Check for software updates: Make sure that your chartplotter has the latest software updates installed. You can check for updates on the Raymarine website or by contacting customer support.
3. Check the chart source: Make sure that the chart source is set correctly on your chartplotter. If you have multiple chart sources (e.g. internal memory, external card), make sure that the correct source is selected.
4. Check the chart format: Make sure that the chart format is compatible with your chartplotter. Some chartplotters only support certain chart formats, so check the user manual or contact the manufacturer for compatibility information.
5. Check for obstructions: Make sure that there are no obstructions blocking the GPS antenna or interfering with the chartplotter's reception. Obstructions can include tall buildings, trees, and other objects that block the line of sight to the GPS satellites.
6. Reset the chartplotter: Try resetting the chartplotter to its default settings. This can sometimes clear up software glitches or other issues that may be preventing the charts from loading.
If none of these solutions work, you may need to contact Raymarine customer support for further assistance or repair.

Take care and have a great day! -Alex

Chart details not appearing after removal.

Same problem I had. After resetting unit and checking CF on another unit, Raymarine tech. said, the reader is not working. All pins seems to be OK on first look. I opened unit by removing several screws in front, gasket and the whole chassis from the case. Simple repositioning of pushed down pins from inside into the Compact Flash corrected contact problem of reader. Since then, I never removed CF. It seemed, after several reinsertions of CF, I pushed down two pins in CF slot.

You may be able to send it in to Raymarine however you need to call to be sure. The older models are often abandoned and they may not work on them any longer.

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
