Look at it this way Cod... with that dodgy import radio and a really long antenna you can give us Yanks and our Canuck friends a hello!
Roy, what exactly went wrong with your unit and how long have you used it? I am contemplating buying one and would like a little feedback from a actual user, thanks!

Great idea!!!

I have the C80 which is earlier model of the E80 and I am very happy with it - works very well and the DSM300 fishfinder module is fantastic.

I am missing the Marina channels and a few others like 37 etc. Obviously channel 16 is there etc but can't talk to my harbour or any other private channels.

Is your an early one codders? cos if so that was down to Raymarine.
The first 54E's did not have M1 (37a) and M2 (P4) in them.
If it is that your is an early one then it not really down to Cactus!!

All the best

It shouldn't be an early one - they had been out for about a year when I bought mine - unless Cactus had some very old stock lying around!!!

Hi

The C series and E series multi-function monitors run alongside each other in the range, and are completly different pieces of kit, both are available depending on how much 'networkability' or how many features you need.

Have a look at www.raymarine.com for details.

Send your VHF serial number to Raymarine customer service, they would be very interested in US spec radios being sold in the UK by a Raymarine dealer!

Nasher.

Raymarine - Not Impressed!

I wish I could say the same as you Roy ... I took my Raymarine GPS antenna to Raymarine (Portsmouth), on the recommendation of a marine electronics engineer, who believed that they could give it a quick check and tell me if it was faulty. Apparently, they have done this kind of thing before.

Unfortunately, the "seargent major" woman on reception was very negative and - having reluctantly approached the Raymarine engineers in what I could have anticipated would be a wholly negative manner - came back and said that they were too busy but I could leave it and they would check it idc.

The unit has power and is supposedly searching for a signal but seems unable to find a single satellite. The engineer will now test it instead.

Not impressed with Raymarine's service at all!

I have since heard from another source that their GPS antenna often fails - Great!

Chris.
