Hi Jim. I did the latest update today for the radar. It is supposed to allow zoom in feature down to 200 feet. Well, after the update, my Radar will no longer transmit? Radar page pulls up/opens and I hit "transmit" on the radar icon, but then it immediately reverts back to radar "Off". Any ideas as to what the issue may be?

I don't have any idea. I'd report it to Navico and see if other users are experiencing this. Perhaps they can have you roll back to the prior version, or try to reload the current version.

Hi Jim.. After over an hour on tech line, they determined the radar or head unit has gone bad.... New one will be here day after tommorow.
