Documentation service costs about $600. This includes the $150 USCG fee. So you are paying about $450 for someone to file the paperwork and push it through. Probably worth it. I just had mine...

Simrad also told me to do the downgrade to 18.2. However, I tried the hard reset on 18.3 and that appears to also have fixed the system, at least for now. So I think there are 2 ways to fix this. ...

I think someone said a V10 NA engine is on the way next year to replace the 350, 400R and offer the bigger sizes. Lots of guesses.
