I'm having some trouble with my Standard Horizon CP180i chart plotter. Last week I was cruising around the 1000 Islands Ontario Canada
and my chart plotter lost
the data it was using to put the chart on the plotter. For a while all that I had was the time, lat/long coordinates, SOG. I cleared the ram memory from the chart plotter and the chart came back. What seemed to have disappeared for good was my NMEA
feed to my autopilot
. I tried to see if the wire from the chart plotter had disengaged from the autopilot
but all looks good. I then tried to run a few self tests from the chart plotter screen
and when I've tried to test the C-Card the chart plotter freezes and won't do anything until the power is turned off at the source.
I'm trying to find out if anyone out there has had similar problems and what they did to resolve it. I'm also sending this to the tech department of Standard Horizon to see what they can offer as a solution. Keep you posted.
