My previous GPS died and I have replaced it with a Raymarine 125 GPS. The previous GPS obtained a satellite differential fix about 90% of the time, which seemed to improve the GPS stability significantly. The new 125 unit will not report a satellite differential fix despite a strong signal from the SD satellite (I am in NE Sicily).
I have contacted Raymarine and they respond that the EGNOS satellite differential system is not yet operational and therefore will not be used by the 125. Is this correct ? Why did the old unit get an SD fix with better accuracy than the new unit (sold as WAAS EGNOS ready).
Thanks John
