So my 1981 Morgan
41 Out Island came with a Furuno
RDP131 it uses C-Map
NT cards for charts
seams to work
as well as everything else. And I believe the auto pilot is integrated into it.
Thing is I know nothing about how to use it and all its functions. I've looked for somewhere to download a manual, like on the Furuno
website and goggled the inter webs for it but came up dry, anybody know where I might get one?
Now as for the cards, it uses the ones with the wire handle I have 2 one is 18-FEB-2009 Cape Cod
, Long Island
River the other is
18-Feb-2009 Passamquoddy Bay to Narragnsett Bay
Nether of which will do me any good in the near future I'll be in NC and South for a while but we hope to start crusing all over in the next year or so.
My question is, Is this RDP131 worth keeping?
Is there a way to get updated charts
for it? Is there a way to put new charts on the old cards or is there a repository where folks swap their cards? I see some on ebay for $50 to $100 + but I hate to start investing it them if I'm just going to wind
up replacing the unit with a tablet and a chart plotter program.
What say you fine folks?
