Default Raymarine Issues

My old man's C120 just went down and it looks like he lost all of his numbers.. He's pretty pissed about it. anyone know if they can recover them? also, is there a way to back up your unit so this wont occur in the future?

You can back up your waypoints anytime with a little SD card. I keep a back up on the boat with me.

Also, if you get a multi card reader and Raytech 6.0 (free), it will be way easier to reccreate as best possible and transfer it back to your chip and/or keep a backup on your pc.

C-series uses CF cards. You can save waypoints to the extra CF card using the menu options. If you have a computer or card reader that can read/write to a CF card you can transfer waypoints by using a free waypoint utitility that Raymarine has on thier website. It uses a MS excel file format. You can also use Raytech planner. To view navionics charts through Raytech planner, you will need to get the Raymarine card reader/writer. Go figure.

Ok, so if I follow you guys correctly, I have to purchase a CF card. Can I get this directly from Raymarine or can I save a few bucks by getting somewhere else? Then, if I am up to it, I can back it up by putting it on my PC.. However that isnt a necessary step just so long as I keep that CF card in a safe place. Right?

You can buy CF cards that work from any computer supply store but if I recall correctly for some odd reason the Raymarine's prefer San Disk CF cards over other brands - I don't recall why (and I don't work for San Disk.)

Staples or Office Max has the CF card you will need.....It just takes a few seconds to back them up and the I store mine on my laptop at home and I keep the card in a zip lock bag on the boat just in case........
