Default C-map chart color in Navnet

I went with C-map option instead of Navionics on my Navnet 1833c system. I thought the colors of the charts were much easier to see. I preferred the water being blue instead of black.

I used the unit for the first time yesterday. The color of the water is black, not blue, and it is a c-map. I can't find a setting anywhere to change this. I guess maybe this was not a difference between Navionics and C-Map. It is a setting. However, the only setting I can find dealing with color is white or black background. I'm sure it's somthing simple but I can't figure it out. I want it to look like this:

I have the 1823C w/ C-Map, which is the same unit as yours except that I have an 18" 2.2 kW radome.

The chart background color choices are only white or black. Landmass can be one of the following in dim or bright: red, yellow, green, light-blue, purple, blue, white, or off.

Wayne, thanks for the reply. Does your screen look like the picture in the link I attached? I'm trying to get the water to be blue instead of black. Thanks

I think that link is showing the Navionics version.

Craven, I hope not. When I decided on the unit, the dealer was definitely using a c-map and the water was blue. Now I'm nervous. I don't like the black charts.

Got a response from Furuno. I needed to change the Hue from nighttime to daytime. Now I have the much nicer colors.
