998c SI not working right after playing with simulator mode
« on: April 04, 2019, 06:08:46 PM »
My 998c SI unit was working fine until i brought it into house and hooked it up to play with simulator. My next trip out the unit lost most all views. Shut unit down and restarted it and it worked fine. My next fishing trip the unit lost most all views again. I shut the unit down and restarted it. No Good. Tried shutting it down numerous times with the same result. The only screens the unit was showing was the sonar view and it was not right. Then I did a RESTORE DEFAULTS. Shutdown the unit then restarted unit. Again I only had sonar view screens. No side imaging or down imaging screens would show. At the end of the day I opened the access door to look at card. Found card was not set into unit. Shutdown unit and set card then started unit up but had the same problem not showing the down and side imaging screens. Only screens working was the sonar and chart view screens.

Issues such as these can sometimes be attributed to a corrupt Waypoint  ...

It might be a good idea to export your Waypoints and import them into HBPC and check for bad dates, weird latitude/longitude numbers or duplicate Waypoints  ...

Then delete the Waypoints from the HB unit, Restore Defaults and test the unit with no Nav data or map cards in the unit  ...
