I now have all the gauges in and the plotter changed over.
Still programming but came across a few niggles.
1. Backlight is wired into my instrument lights but does nothing? The gauges light up for display but I assume the backlight wires are for the buttons? Nothing happening on any of the four gauges?
2. One gauge goes dark before any of the other three when using the network dimming. Looked at contrast and brightness and all are the same but this one is unreadable at the lowest setting. s,not a major problem as it can be manually brightened but annoying as the network dimming controls can be used for all instruments.
3. On the 5300C plotter running a Nauticpath card I can figure out how to set the land to be coloured as per the LCX-27 running a Navionics card. The instructions say the land can be set "gray" but doesn't explain how and I can't find anything going through the unit menus. Or is setting sea "white" the way it is done? Basically sea and land are both white, I like land to be coloured to make it more obvious to the missus to avoid
4. Tried downloading the latest 2.4.0 software for the 5300C and keep getting an error, anybody now why? keeps saying null when downloading and have tried everyway I can think.
Once these niggles are sorted out I will be happy enough, lots of toys to play with and they look and seem to work well. I just wish Lowrance would improve the manuals!
