Default Radar Overlay on HDS


I have hds-8 gen 2 and and hds7 gen 1 with 3g radar, lss-1 ans siruis.
Is there a trick to get radar to overlay on chart? When I selected Radar on the overlay menu I get radar data invalid. the weather overlay worked fine as did the structure.
The radar in its own screen was working fine

Pretty sure you need a heading sensor, RC42, to get the overlay.
