Suddenly, without any warning the "no GPS
alarm" starts sounding on my Ray55E VHF
which suggests it is not communicating with my C90W plotter properly. Very annoying and it looks like it is getting occasional positions from the system but not regularly enough to prevent the alarm
Even when I enter the position Manually to over ride the networked position it doesn't last and the alarm
1) is it OK to remove the SeaTalk
cable from the back of the VHF
thereby removing all GPS
data from the radio
and using a manual position for each day?
2) is there a way to stop the VHF asking the C90W for the position so I don't have to fiddle around and remove the cable?
3) is the a fix to get the system to talk properly again
4) is it time for a new VHF? If so I'm not going to stick with Raymarine
so looking for a budget
station with built in GPS and possibly AIS
(although not essential). Ideas on a postcard........
