How to update Charts on flybridge C120 Display

Postby AMCarter3 » Sun Sep 18, 2016 2:15 pm

I bought for $240 the Navionics charts update CF card plus the latest software update for my Raymarine C120 chartplotter. The software update and charts installed just fine on the lower helm C120. How can I update the charts on my Flybridge C120 display? I called Navionics and I thought they said I could simply buy a similar 2GB CF card, which I did, and then download the new charts from my Navionics account. However, that does not appear to work. Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Mac

If your chartplotters are networked they should read the same card. One of the plotters is designated as the Master, and that's where you install the card, then the other unit will read the chart info from the master unit. On my boat, the unit at the helm inside is the master, and the flybridge unit reads the charts from it.

My 2006 C120 chartplotter is not designed with the Master / Slave concept. I've been told the flybridge display is entirely independent of the lower helm display. And, to confirm that, when I update the software for the lower display, it did NOT update the software for the flybridge display. I had to repeat the update process on the flybridge.
