Hi, I have a 27' SeaPro CC boat with the new "e" series MFD's and HD radar. It has twin outboard Mercury Verado's with hydraulic steering (not powered steering). Can I use the new EV-200 kit which has the steering drive on my boat?

The dry weight of the boat with the engines is about 6,000lb. Thanks.

You would be working with the EV-200 but with Twin Verados, you would need to hydraulic autopilot system.  T70157, then with Verados, you would need the Verado hose kit as well, A18127.

Thanks. That option is very expensive. Can I use the EV-100 instead?

Also, will the EV-1 function by itself and provide heading data to my e7 so I can get my radar overlay if I just purchase that separately?

Thanks again.

The EV-100 does not have the capacity to work with Verados, the option above is the only option that will work with your vessel.  

The EV-1 will not work as a heading sensor only.

I would suggest the Airmar 2183 heading sensor (T70132) for heading data for overlay capabilities.

C70 Navionics Map Display

Hi, I have C80 and C70 at the sailboat. They both have 5.16 software. I bought a new Navionics Map on CF card to use with them. I don't have any problem when using it on C80, once plugged it displays the map. On the other hand, when I use the same CF on C70, it doesn't display the map. After waiting 5-10min, it started to display it. I shut it down and restart, it didn't display again. It doesn't give any error message, like cannot read CF etc.Does anyone have any idea about this problem?See More

Converting FSH file (C120 Compactflash WayPoint Backup), to an Excel File for WP management

I have a Compact Flash back up of all my waypoints and routes from my C120 chart plotter.

Start up issues with c125

Yesterday underway, the chart screen went to base map resolution, I turned off the MFD, restarted and it worked fine. Today, the same thing happened but on turning it back on, it is froze with the Lighthouse page with the blue swish. Would not turn off with the power key, I cut the power at the breaker, rebooted and same locked up screen. Any suggestions?
