Default Another Raymarine ES78 question speed box but no speed...?

HI All,

Many thanks for the past few helpful replies- heres another for you wizards..

My new raymarine s78 unit is seemingly not giving my speed even though I selected speed on charts as my second databox (see pic). It does give me temp now but the speed databox is empty. Am I missing something? I have been using charts for navigation, not data. I noticed since I had no waypoints selected there was much blank data there as well but I do get speed if I go to that window in the upper righthand corner... Not sure why it shows up as blank on charts!!!!

Also, I cant seem to change the boat size icon, there does not seem to be an option to change it in charts, presentation. I don't have the machine on infant of me so I don't recall the options there but I think I exhausted them.

Anyways happy boating and thank you in advance!

"Speed" is Speed through the water - will only show if you have a paddlewheel transducer. None of the transducers that work with the Raymarine x8 units have a paddlewheel.

You want "SOG" Speed Over Ground, as calculated by the unit's GPS.
