Yup. Can't set it. Looks like a factory rest. Gutted

So yours didn't last?

No, I ran all the cables then connected it up to make sure it worked - it did. I then cut the hole and squeezed it in placed, reconnected and it didn't power up! 12V to it was fine, as was the fuse but it didn't come on again.

Since its a sealed unit it went back for exchange & it should be here "by 13th November" according to Amazon. (I got it from there as I had some vouchers from work).

I still think it'll be a good unit though. I've had the only failed one that I've found in searches & you've just had one sent out with an MMSI already in it for some reason. Every other report I've read gives them a good report.

I'm starting to get miffed off with it not working. I have got the day booked off tomorrow to spend giving the boat some TLC and this was one of my jobs. If I have to send the unit back I may just say keep it as I won't get chance to install until after my last trip of season and I only wanted it for a gadget.

I've been pressing ass sorts of buttons when powering it up and got two different startup modes.. PC Mode or a screen saying enter PIN

That PIN request page is probably the manufacturers page to do the reset! Now, if only you knew the PIN.......

You could always do what I did - run all the cables and cut the console ready so when it does arrive it's a 5 minute job. After all, it's got good reviews and has AIS which a lot of others don't have for the same price.

If you need to go out before it arrives there's always masking tape! ;-)

Only issue with doing that is that I would remove my working ICOM unit and only go out with a handheld.

Let's see what the supplier and Lowrance say tomorrow

Hope you took note of how they did it?! ;-) Glad you got it sorted. It'd be nice to know how you get on with it as I'm still waiting for my replacement.
