The standard card if I place in the upper E120 it reads to both itself and the lower E80, if I put that card in the lower E 80 it only reads in that unit. Both units are on Seatalk
. Any one know why this new card would not read on a E120.
I don't think the two units are interconnected only with standard SeaTalk - for an E-series display to share digital charts
with a second E-series, they must be connected via SeaTalkHS - their high speed Ethernet interface. Since the data on the standard card (Gold, or Platinum?) inserted in the E-120 can be read by the E-80, it appears that you do have an ethernet cable (SeaTalkHS) connecting the two.
I'd check the firmware/software version on each of the units. The most current
version is v4.29. I'd at least make sure they're both running the same version. Since the E-120 can read the older standard card, and it can relay its data to the E-80 down below, it sounds like the software
on the E-120 can't handle Platinum+ cartography. At a minimum, v2.30 is required to read Platinum charts
