Does this unit display tide information like on the Northstar units. If so, how do I access that function.?

I'm not that familiar with the Northstar and how they may represent the info, but its easy on a C-Series (yours should be just like my C120). If you see a white diamond symbol with a black capital "T" in it, that is a tide station, you can scroll over to it, press OK, and then selct the show tide option and you will have the traditional sine wave style tide graph for that tide station. A easier and quicker way to find the tide station is to move the cursor off of the boat with the trackpad and press OK. At the bottom of the screen you will see an option that says "Nearest", press that soft key, then highlight "Tide Stations" with the trackpad, then finally select "Tidal Data" just like before and you will hve the tide graph again.

boatdork, thanks! I have had the C120 for almost a year and knew that option was there but never took the time to learn it. Is moon data available as well?

Actually, all you have to do is be in the chart mode and press OK. then a menu comes up that makes it easy. You don't even have to highlight the T symbol.

I haven't seen any moon data, and looking at Navionics info on the Gold cards I don't think its available, but I'll do some digging.
