Question about Raymarine A65 Combo GPS Chartplotter/Fishfinder
I have the unit hardwired to one of the batterys, It doesn't matter if I run on batt 1 or 2 or all. It was sent in to Raymarine because the unit would not boot up under warranty. Now out of warranty and my first full week of use, it just shuts off. voltage is always 13.1 to 13.3. I have the upgrade and had to buy the new antenna to get waas capable again, and was still under warranty. Not happy with unit and bought a garmin handheld for backup Help if you can, will sell if you want it.
My A65 was constantly shutting itself off. I did the reset and the unit is working just like it should now and I have had no more problems.
Go to Setup, System Setup, then Settings Reset and press Enter. This returns all settings back to their original factory values. It should not reset your waypoints or route lists. Raymarine recommends you backup your waypoints on a separate Compact-Flash card but I didn't do that as I wrote down my all my coordinates. Hey I'm a fisherman all I care about are my fishing spots.
I'm not sure what setting it was that I changed that caused the adverse affect of the unit shutting itself off but resetting the unit did the trick. I was more careful about adjusting the display settings to my liking by doing them one at a time and waiting to see if the problem returned. It has not so far, knock on wood, and the unit is working the flawlessly now.
