Default Northstar service needed

I have an old Northstar 961XD unit that I need fixed if at all possible. I upgraded electronics last year, but miss this unit and it has many of my fishing spots stored in it. The unit powers up but the display shows that the time or date on my system is invalid and wont move from that screen. Any help is appreciated.

I second the recommendation to contact jimmy ruggierio. He's one of the last guys around that can fix these great units. I had the same problem you are describing some years ago and I'm pretty sure it was a simple motherboard battery replacement. Good luck.

Jimmy has been a customer of mine for quite some time. I applaud what he does because there is no money in repairing these things. They say you can be good at a lot of things or excel at one thing - these units are his bread and butter.
