I'm having trouble getting my i70 to display depth. My i70 is connected to a seatalk ng network. The network also has a c97 and an a65 on it. A b744v transducer is connected directly into the c97. The c97 serves as the master. Everything else on the i70 seems to be working just fine.

In addition to having trouble getting the i70 to display the depth, the depth on the c97 in very inconsistent. I have to reboot the c97 several times before it will pick up the depth. Interestingly the fish finder display works fine on the c97 and a65 but no depth display.

I have installed the lighthouse version updates to both the c97 and a65.

When you are looking at a depth databox on the i70, is it showing zero or dashes?  How is the i70 connected to the c97 and a65?

Zero.. The i70 is connected to the network by backbone seatalk ng 

Is the depth available on the c97 fishfinder screen when it is showing zero on the i70?  What is the software levels on both the c97 and the a65?  They should be the same and the latest software is v7.43, and the i70 the latest is v1.25.

X5 - need to continually set compass to GPS

X5 wheelpilot is connected to an E7 plotter.  Heading is no longer accurate.  If I go to setup/commissioning/set compass to GPS the problem goes away for a while, then returns.  What is the next step?See More

Dragonfly top clutter?

What is this and how do I limit it?  Sometimes it is there and sometimes not.  It may be there while I am moving or while I am stationary.  I have noticed it taking up the first 100ft of the water column, when I was in deeper water. See More

Adding E125 to E120w and 90w system

I understand this can be done without getting all the advantages of the new e125, using the compatability mode. My biggest complaint with the wide series is the size of the icons, virtually unreadble, being too small.  Please confirm that the new e125 series addresses that issue.See More

Dual Helm C120 Installation

I recently purchased a boat that came with a C120 as an upgrade to the original equipment, so I plan to use it as best I can for a few years.  Can anyone recommend the best radome to use with the system?  The original scanner is an open array 30 inch R11XX.  The boat has a separate radar display that I can't get to work.The boat has an upper and lower helm, so I'll need cables set up to handle both.  I plan to move the C120 when switching helms. Is there some kind of splitter for two…See More

squeaking EV 100 wheel unit

I just installed a brand new EV 100 wheel autopilot on my Islander 32. During dockside commissioning we noticed squeaking and groaning. Took the cover off and checked all the drive components, adjusted the clutch to a few settings, but the noise persists, and I am unable to locate its source.I did find some black deposits on the plastic bearing surfaces that the belt guide rollers bear on, but very minimal. Also had some trouble deciding whether to use the 12 or 16mm wheel clamp inserts as ours…See More

SPX10 and incorrect heading

Hello,My sailing boat is equipped with Raymarine autopilot SPX10 and I use ST70 to control it. The system has worked several years without problems, but yesterday the heading suddenly changed and didn't show the correct heading anymore. The heading ST70 is showing is now slowly changing between 40 and 80 degrees and doesn't seem to depend on the actual course.I removed the fluxgate compass and measured the resistances as instructed in the…See More
