Default Old School- 951X Northstar- Navionics Chart NY help/question

Hello. I have a 951X Northstar and purchased Navionics New York-Block Island NC/US825L chart.

The chart plotter says chip inserted but no title and can not read it. When I put the FL chart that came with the plotter, it reads it perfectly.

I am thinking that the chip is too new? I have the chip serial number if needed?

I will swap for an older chip if anyone has one.

Any insight to the issue would be great.

Some 951's won't read the "L" chips, there was a hardware upgrade Northstar did on these back in the day to allow them to read the L and XL card. You probably need to look for a different chip, ofter with S32, T32, S08, or T08 instead of XL or L

I have a New York to Block Island Navionics chip that I removed from my 951X so I know it will work. The cost is $35 plus $5 to ship.

That makes perfect sense. I knew I needed the update done for the XL charts. Thank you ver much for your insight and thought. I am grateful.

Jlr I sent you a pm.
