I've spent several days/weeks now on the Raymarine
heavily moderated site
Still struggling: 16GB Navionics CF crashes RNS 6.2 - Raymarine Technical Forum
and glean the following: according to them it can't be done.
Personally, I don't use the word "can't", rather seek the answer to "what will it take"...
I've documented all the details for further discussion but first would like to connect with someone else who has faced this issue, successfully or not. I'm sure there's a solution; we just don't know it yet.
In short, Raymarine's RNS 6.2 system (circa 2008) works with an older Navionics
2GB SanDisk Compact Flash in the proprietary Navionics
USB 2.0 Multicard Reader. It freezes if presented with the new (2015) 16GB Gold+ CF card in the same reader.
Uninstalling and reinstalling RNS, using Windows XP compatibility mode, using OpenGL, none have any effect.
The Raytech forum basically shrugged: we're not working on it anymore, it was designed for Gold, we haven't a clue about Gold+, talk to Navionics.
Has anyone here done better? What will it take to do better?
