Jessjr,Sorry to tell you this but it will only work if you have a speed transducer. It reads the odometer off the paddlewheel. I have already put this in to Raymarine about a 3 months ago. I do not know why they would not just do it off of the gps like everyone else.

Yep! I have had numerous customers contact me about that issue. One of them laughs as he has 2 C120s I put in but has a Garmin 72 with his trip odometer between them!

Your only option is to use the track line. Start track at the beginning of the trip and stop the track at the end. Save the track and it will show you the track line info in distance when you review the track.

My C-120 has a trip log on the data bar at the top of the screen when I am on the chart screen. I reset this to zero before each trip by going to my fishfinder screen, go to menu, go to fishfinder setup and scroll down to "reset trip log" That's it.

Barecat:

Do you have a sounder interfaced into the C120 with a speed transducer?

Swamppro,
I have everything interfaced with my C-120. I believe I have a P-66 transducer with a speed wheel, however, I get my speed readings from my GPS, not the wheel. I guess this might make the difference in reading my trip log? I thought the trip log came from the GPS since I don't get a speed reading from the wheel, only the GPS.
I had all my electronics hooked up by the dealer when I bought the boat. Don't ask me how they work, I just know they do!!

Disconnect the transducer and see if the trip log still works. The trip log is read from the transducer not the gps.
