Downloading Navionic Chart
« on: May 29, 2017, 11:36:06 AM »
I just installed an Helix 7 SI on my boat. Still fiddling with settings to get desired images. My question is, when I go to the chart view, I get message "downloading chart"  How long should this take? Does it download when chart view is not selected? I have a Navionics chip. At this point, I have nothing. Thanks

The unit does not "download" the mapping data = it is read directly from the card when a Chart view is active  ...

The "Loading Charts" popup shouldn't take but a few seconds before the map data is visible  ...

Is this a Navionics "update-able" map card  ...??

Can you try the map card in a different unit  ...??

Thanks for replying. It is an updateable card. No I don't have another Humminbird to try the card in. Currently the boat is at the lake, I'll probably need to retrieve the card next weekend and try to update the card on the computer, since it does not appear that the charts are on the card.

There may be corrupt data on the Navionics card  ...

You may need to contact Navionics  ...
