Caution: Care of chart cards
To avoid irreparable damage to and/or loss of data
from chart cards:
• Ensure that chart cards are fitted the correct way
around. DO NOT try to force a card into position.
• DO NOT save data (waypoints, routes, and so
on) to a Navionics chart card, as the charts may
be overwritten.
• DO NOT use a metallic instrument such as a
screwdriver or pliers to remove a chart card.
• DO NOT remove a chart card while information
is being written to or read from it.
Caution: Ensure chart card door is
securely closed
To prevent water ingress and consequent damage
to the display, ensure that the chart card door is
firmly closed. This can be confirmed by an audible
click.
Caution: Cleaning
When cleaning this product do NOT use acid,
ammonia-based or abrasive products, and do NOT
use high pressure washing (jet wash) equipment.

TFT LCD Displays
The colors of the display may seem to vary when viewed against
a colored background or in colored light. This is a perfectly normal
effect that can be seen with all color Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs).
In common with all Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD units, the screen
may exhibit a few (less than 7) wrongly illuminated pixels. These
may appear as black pixels in a light area of the screen or as colored
pixels in black areas.
Water ingress
As it exceeds the water proof rating capacity outlined by standards
IPX6, subjecting any Raymarine equipment to commercial
high pressure washing equipment may cause water intrusion
and subsequent equipment failure. Raymarine will not warrant
equipment subjected to high pressure washing.

4.1 CompactFlash cards overview
Caution: Care of chart cards
CompactFlash cards enable you to use additional cartographic
information , and save and archive data.
To avoid irreparable damage to and/or loss of data
from chart cards:
Their uses include:
• Ensure that chart cards are fitted the correct way
around. DO NOT try to force a card into position.
• Detailed cartographic information: Obtain detailed cartographic
information of the area that you navigate using Navionics® chart
cards. To check the current availability of Navionics chart card
types, please visit www.navionics.com or www.navionics.it. The
amount of cartographic detail shown varies for different areas
and for different scales. The chart scale in use is indicated in the
status bar - the number represents the distance in nautical miles
from the top of the chart window to the bottom of the chart window.
• Archiving: To archive waypoints, routes and tracks.
• Saving: To save waypoint, route and track data for use by other
equipment, such as a PC.
You can remove and insert cards while a chart is displayed provided
that you follow the correct procedure. The chart information is
retained on-screen until the chartplotter redraws the screen; for
example, when you pan outside the current area, or use the Range
button to change the chart scale.
34
• DO NOT save data (waypoints, routes, and so
on) to a Navionics chart card, as the charts may
be overwritten.
• DO NOT use a metallic instrument such as a
screwdriver or pliers to remove a chart card.
• DO NOT remove a chart card while information
is being written to or read from it.
Inserting a CompactFlash card
1. Check that you are using the correct type of card (see Important
Information, at the beginning of this manual).
2. Open the chart card door, located on the front right of the display.
3. Insert the card as shown in the diagram below, with the lip of the
card facing outwards. It should position easily. If it does not, DO
NOT force it, check the direction in which the lip is facing.
4. Gently press the card all the way in to the card slot.
5. To prevent the ingress of water and consequent damage, close
the chart card door and press firmly until a click is heard.
C-Series Widescreen user reference
5. Press the card eject button.
6. To prevent the ingress of water and consequent damage, close
the chart card door and press firmly until a click is heard.
7. Press OK.
D11530-1
Caution: Ensure chart card door is
securely closed
To prevent water ingress and consequent damage
to the display, ensure that the chart card door is
firmly closed. This can be confirmed by an audible
click.
Removing a CompactFlash Card
1. If the multifunction display is powered on, press the MENU

4.2 Writing and retrieving data
You can transfer data between a number of devices to help you
backup and manage your waypoints, routes, and tracks.
Your multifunction display can save up to 3000 waypoints, 150
routes and 15 tracks in database lists. Once this number is
reached you will need to archive data to a CompactFlash card for
safe-keeping or retrieval at a later date. Alternatively, you can
transfer data to another instrument or PC using NMEA. When
navigation is active, you can also receive waypoints, routes and
tracks from a PC, SeaTalk and NMEA instruments.
3. Press the ARCHIVE AND TRANSFER softkey.
4. Press the RETRIEVE FROM CARD softkey.
5. Select the type of data that you want to retrieve (Waypoint,
Route, or Track).
6. To retrieve all items of that type of data, press the RETRIEVE
ALL softkey.
7. To retrieve an individual item of data, select the item from the list
and press the RETRIEVE softkey.
Note: If the type of data you have selected already exists in the
display’s memory, use the softkeys to select a suitable action;
retrieve as new data, replace existing data, or cancel.
Saving data to a CompactFlash card
Note: Raymarine strongly recommends that you save data to
a separate CompactFlash card, and not to a Navionics card
containing cartography.

4.3 Transferring data using a PC
4.4 Operating a networked display
You can transfer waypoints or routes to and from your display and a
PC or instrument, using NMEA.
You can connect an additional multifunction display for a more
flexible and accessible system.
With the RayTech V6.0 (or later) software you can transfer waypoints
and routes via a CompactFlash memory card. Such transfers
require that the PC is connected to the display’s NMEA port via
a serial data cable.
If you have multifunction displays connected together (using a
crossover coupler or a SeaTalkhs switch), you can input, edit, and
view data across all displays. However, there are some functions
and settings that are not ’seen’ or shared by all displays on your
network. These exceptions are detailed below.

Designating a Data Master Display
To ensure that the latest system data — such as databases of
waypoints, routes and tracks — is available at all multifunction
displays, one of the displays must be designated as the “data
master”.
All system data is managed by the data master. The display that has
been designated as the data master should always be powered-on
— preferably first, before any additional displays. This is because
every time a change is made to the system data, the data master will
copy its databases to all other displays that are currently powered
on. If the data master is not powered-on, or a data master has not
been designated, an alarm will sound, and you will be prompted to
select a master display.
Note: When changing the designated data master display, or
adding an additional display, ensure that all your data is archived
to a CompactFlash card so that you can restore it later in the
event of a mistake.

5.1 Waypoints
A waypoint is a position marked on a chart, radar or fishfinder
window to indicate a site (for fishing, diving etc.) or as a place to
navigate to. By default, all waypoints are indicated on screen by a
waypoint symbol (x). This symbol can be changed if required. You
can also select an alternative symbol to be used as the default for
newly created waypoints.
to another NMEA compatible instrument. If the system receives an
active waypoint over SeaTalk or NMEA, it is displayed but cannot
be edited. If required, you can prevent access to, modification and
sight of your waypoint and route databases and functions by means
of a password.
D9440_1
Default symbol
Waypoints are a core feature of your multifunction display. They can
be created in any application and are displayed on the radar, chart
and fishfinder windows. A series of waypoints can be combined
together to form a route. The details of all waypoints, irrespective
of the application they were created in, are stored in a dedicated
waypoint list which will hold up to 3000 waypoints. All waypoints are,
by default, placed in the MY WAYPOINTS group. If required, you
can create new groups and change the default group. If necessary,
waypoints can be archived to a CompactFlash card or transferred

With suitable heading and position data from your charts and a GPS
module, your multifunction display enables you to
Ensure safe basic navigation at all times.
• Find out where you are.
• Interpret your surroundings.
• Measure the distance and bearing between two points.
• Place waypoints at specific locations.
• Navigate to a specific point.
This product is intended only as an aid to navigation and must
never be used in preference to sound navigational judgment. Only
official government charts and notices to mariners contain all the
current information needed for safe navigation, and the captain is
responsible for their prudent use. It is the user’s responsibility to
use official government charts, notices to mariners, caution and
proper navigational skill when operating this or any other Raymarine
product.
• Build and follow a route.
• Monitor where you are going.
• Distinguish between fixed and moving objects using radar overlay.
• Record where you have been.
• Manage and edit routes and tracks.
• View AIS data.
You can also use your multifunction display to customize your chart
application to your own particular requirements and circumstances.
You can:
• Alter the way the chart is drawn in relation to your boat and the
direction you are travelling in (chart orientation and motion mode).
• Manage and edit chart data you have entered.
• Control the level of detail displayed on-screen.

6.4 What the chart displays
When using your chartplotter you should always check that a route
is safe.
The chart display has a number of features to help you navigate.
Zoom in to check for hazards, such as small shoals, that may
not be shown on a smaller scale chart. Until you are familiar with
interpreting the chart display, you should take every opportunity to
compare the displayed objects with visual targets, such as buoys
and coastal structures. You should practice harbour and coastal
navigation during daylight and in clear weather conditions. The
simulator mode can also be used to help you gain experience.

6.5 Chart cards
6.6 Chart datum
Chart cards can be used with your multifunction display to provide
chart detail for specific geographic areas.
In order for your GPS and chart to correlate accurately with your
paper charts, they must be using the same datum.
Your multifunction display is supplied with embedded cartography
that provides a level of detail suitable for basic navigation in a
specific geographic area. If you require charts with a higher level
of detail, or for a different geographic area, it is necessary to
purchase Navionics® chart cards. To check the current availability
of Navionics chart card types and the latest feature sets, visit
www.navionics.com or www.navionics.it. To obtain Navionics cards,
contact your local dealer or visit the Navionics web site.
The default datum for your display is WGS1984. If this is not
suitable, you can change the setting via the Chart Setup menu.
When you adjust the datum of your multifunction display, a
Raymarine GPS will automatically correlate. If you have an external
third party GPS, you will need to correlate this separately.

the most detailed level available for the surrounding area and stretch
it to fit the selected scale. This means that you will never have blank
or hatched areas on your screen. However there may be some
mis-alignment of objects which cross the chart boundary in this area.

6.9 Chart presentation
The chart can be viewed in a number of ways to suit your needs.
You will normally view your chart with the vessel on screen and
motion mode ‘active’. When motion mode is active, as your vessel
moves, the chart is redrawn to keep the vessel on screen. When
you zoom the chart in active mode, the chart zooms about your
vessel position. Alternatively, you may be planning a journey and
do not want the chart to redraw as your vessel moves. You can
suspend the active motion mode by using the cursor to pan the chart
or by selecting FIND CURSOR. When motion mode is suspended,
the mode is shown in the status bar in parenthesis e.g. (RELATIVE
MOTION); zoom operates about your cursor position. Provided the
necessary data to ascertain your vessel’s position is available, you
can activate the motion mode, by selecting FIND SHIP.
Changing the chart display
Each chart window can be tailored to meet your particular needs.
You can:
• Set the chart view for individual windows or system wide.
• Change how the chart is orientated.
• Change the way your chart is drawn in relation to your boat
movement.
Working with multiple chart views
If you have more than one chart window, you can either share the
presentation or present each window independently. The option
you have chosen is indicated on the chart status bar as LOCAL or
SYSTEM.

SYSTEM
chart view
When a chart application is started, it defaults to SYSTEM
view. Any windows set to SYSTEM view will have the same
presentation as other system windows for:
• Chart mode and orientation.
• Chart layers — radar and AIS.
LOCAL
chart view
It is used in conjunction with motion mode to control how your boat
and chart relate to one another and how they are displayed on
screen. The mode that you choose is restored at power up. Any
changes that you make to a chart window that is set to system
view will be reflected in all other system view chart windows. The
following options are available:
• Radar/chart synchronization.
North Up (N-up)
• Show/hide waypoints, routes and tracks.
• Declutter.
In North Up mode, the chart orientation is fixed with true north

Chart orientation
The orientation of a chart refers to the relationship between the
chart and the direction that you are travelling in.
Note: To prevent continuous backwards and forwards rotations
as the boat yaws from side-to-side, the chart will not update
unless the heading changes by at least 10 degrees from the last
displayed orientation.
Note: It is not possible to select Head Up when the motion mode
is set to True.
Course Up (C-up)
In Course Up mode, the chart picture is stabilized and shown with
your current course upwards. As your boat’s heading changes, the
ship symbol moves accordingly. If you select a new course, the
picture will reset to display the new course upwards. The reference
used for Course-Up depends upon the information available at a
given time. The system always prioritizes this information in the
following order:
1. Bearing from origin to destination, i.e. intended course.

and its waypoints deleted when a new quick route is built.
• You can include a waypoint more than once in a route, but the
same waypoint cannot be placed consecutively.
• You can create a new route when the route list is full but on saving
this, you will be prompted to choose an existing route to overwrite.
• You cannot save a new route if any of the waypoints within it are
currently active.
• The way in which the OK and CANCEL buttons operate is
different when you are building and editing routes.
• Build and save a route for later use, in which case the route is
stored in the route list.
• Convert a track of your course into a route.

7.1 3D chart overview
The 3D chart provides a number of features to help you navigate
with your vessel.
Note: Before you can use the 3D chart applicaton, your
multifunction display must be receiving accurate heading and
position data from a suitable source (such as a GPS, for
example). You must also have 3D chart cards containing 3D
cartography for the appropriate area.
• What fishing pattern to use.
• Safe routes.
If the area that you are in is new to you, or visibility is poor, 3D
cartography can help to give you the confidence to know where you
are and what is around you. As with a conventional chart, active
waypoints and routes can also be shown on the 3D chart.
Safety
The 3D chart is an aid to visualization. When navigating with your
3D chart you should also check your 2D chart and ensure that a
route is safe. Until you are familiar with interpreting the 3D chart,
you should take every opportunity to compare the displayed objects
with visual targets, such as buoys and coastal structures. You
should practice harbour and coastal navigation during daylight and
in clear weather conditions. The simulator mode can also be used
to help you gain experience.
The 3D application should not be used as a substitute for good
navigational practice nor for official government paper charts. Do
not use this application before you have read this chapter.
Uses for the 3D Chart
3D cartography introduces an easy-to-use chart format that provides
you with a three dimensional graphical view of land and sea
contours around your boat. Land masses are shown in green, the
shade depending on the height above sea level. Water, the sea-bed
and submerged objects are shown in varying shades of blue.
Much of the information available on a conventional chart can be
shown in three dimensions, giving you an accurate easy-to-view
image of the area around your boat that can help you plan:
• Fishing spots.

7.2 3D chart setup

7.4 3D chart display overview
Before you can use the 3D chart application, you must have chart
cards containing the appropriate 3D cartographic data.
The 3D chart application features a number of display modes to
help you navigate your vessel.
The 3D chart application relies on appropriate cartographic data
stored on CompactFlash chart cards. You must have chart cards
containing 3D cartographic data for the geographic area in which
you want to navigate your vessel.
The following diagram show the various elements of the display:

3D chart view modes
You can change the view provided by the 3D chart to give you a
better view of your surroundings.
The 3D chart application has two main viewing modes:
• Active Motion mode
• Planning mode
88
C-Series Widescreen user reference
Active Motion mode
This is the default mode when you open the 3D chart application,
provided that there is a valid fix. The screen shows an aerial view
of the 3D chart as if you are above your boat, slightly behind it and
looking forward (virtual eye point). You can also view the chart
from different positions relative to your boat. As your boat moves
forward the chart automatically updates and reveals the changing
view ahead.
Note: In Active Motion mode, you can adjust the pitch when the
ADJUST ON softkey is set to CENTER, but rotating or panning
the chart will put it into Planning mode (see below).
Planning mode
Planning mode enables you to view an area of the chart, different
to the one in which you are navigating, so that you can analyze
locations and features. You can use the controls to view a particular
area from different angles, bearings and ranges. The chart no
longer automatically keeps your boat on-screen. When you are in
Planning mode, the controls and functions available are the same
as for Active Motion mode.
Selecting the active motion 3D chart mode
The 3D chart is in Active Motion mode by default. To return to this
mode at any time:
1. Press the FIND SHIP softkey.
The 3D chart is re-drawn, with your vessel in the forward-looking
view at your current position.

9.1 Radar overview
9.2 Radar scanner power modes
Radar is used to provide information that can help you to track
targets and measure distances and bearings.
The radar scanner has a number of power modes.
Radio Detection And Ranging (RADAR) is used at sea to detect the
presence of objects (known as ‘targets’) at a distance, and if they
are moving, detect their speed.
Radar works by transmitting radio pulses, then detecting reflections
of these pulses (echoes) from objects in the area and displaying the
reflections as targets on your display.
Until you are familiar with interpreting the radar display, every
opportunity should be taken to compare the radar screen patterns
with visual targets, such as other boats, buoys and coastal
structures. You should practise harbor and coastal navigation during
daylight hours and in clear weather conditions.
The radar scanner icon in the databar indicates the power status of
the radar scanner. The following is an explanation of each status:
Radar
Mode
Rotating icon, signifying that the scanner
is on and transmitting. When SCANNER
is set to ON, select this mode to activate
the scanner. This is the usual mode of
operation.
Standby
(STBY)
Static icon, indicating that the scanner is
on but not transmitting, and the antenna is
not rotating. Antenna does not rotate, the
scanner does not transmit and the radar
data is removed from the screen. This is a
power save mode used when radar is not
needed for short time periods. When you
return to transmit mode, the magnetron
does not need to warm up. This is the
default mode.
Off
Scanner powered off when radar not
required, but display is in use for other
applications, such as the chart. When
selected, the system counts down. During
this time you cannot re-power the scanner.
Timed
Transmit
Scanner switches between on/transmitting,
and standby mode. Scanner goes into
power save mode when constant use of
radar is not required.
Your multifunction display can be used with digital radar scanners.
Digital radar scanners provide a range of advantages over analog
radar, making it easier to discern objects around your vessel.
Digital radar scanners provide:
• Full-color image.
• Dual Range operation.
• SuperHD option. This effectively increases the transmitter power
by a factor of at least two, and reduces the beamwidth by a
similar amount.
Note: You must connect a SuperHD radar scanner in order to
use the SuperHD option.

9.3 Radar range and image quality
In the radar application:
1. Press the POWER button on your multifunction display.
2. Using the relevant softkeys, select the operating mode for the
radar scanner.
Maximum radar range
The usable range of the radar is limited by factors such as the
height of the scanner, and height of the target.
Maximum radar range is essentially line-of-sight, so is limited by
the height of the scanner and the height of the target as illustrated
below:

the radar horizon is greater than the optical horizon, the radar
can only detect targets if a large enough target is above the radar

Radar image quality
A number of factors can affect the quality of a radar image, including
echoes, sea clutter, and other interference.
Not all radar echoes are produced by valid targets. Spurious echoes
may be caused by:
• Indirect echoes.
Arc
True echo
Side echoes
D1638-4
• Side lobes.
• Multiple echoes.
• Blind sectors.
Indirect Echoes
• Sea, rain, or snow clutter.
There are several types of indirect echoes or ghost images. These
sometimes have the appearance of true echoes, but in general they
are intermittent and poorly defined.
• Interference.
Through observation, practice, and experience, you can generally
detect these conditions very quickly and use the radar controls to
minimize them.
False echo
True echo
True echo
Side lobe patterns are produced by small amounts of energy from
the transmitted pulses that are radiated outside the narrow main
beam. The effects of side lobes are most noticeable with targets at
short ranges (normally below 3 nm), and in particular with larger
objects. Side lobe echoes form either arcs on the radar screen
similar to range rings, or a series of echoes forming a broken arc.

Passing

False echo
D1641-4
Side Lobes
C-Series Widescreen user reference
Multiple Echoes
Multiple echoes are not very common but can occur if there is a large
target with a wide vertical surface at a comparatively short range.
The transmitted signal will be reflected back and forth between the
target and your own ship, resulting in multiple echoes, displayed
beyond the range of the true target echo, but on the same bearing.
D3968-4
True echo
D1642-3
Multiple echoes
Blind Sectors
Obstructions such as funnels and masts near the radar antenna
may obstruct the radar beam and cause radar shadows or ‘blind
sectors’. If the obstruction is relatively narrow, there will be a
reduction of the beam intensity, though not necessarily a complete
cut-off. However, for wider obstructions there may be a total loss of
signal in the shadow area. There may also be multiple echoes which
extend behind the obstruction. Blind sector effects can normally be
minimized by careful selection of the scanner site prior to installation.
Rain or Snow Clutter
The radar can see echoes from rain or snow. Returns from storm
areas and rain squalls consist of countless small echoes that
continuously change size, intensity and position. These returns
sometimes appear as large hazy areas, depending on the intensity
of the rainfall or snow in the storm cell.
Radar returns from waves around the vessel can clutter the centre
of the radar picture, making it difficult to detect real targets. Such
‘sea clutter’ usually appears as multiple echoes on the display at
short range scales, and the echoes are not repetitive or consistent
in position. With high winds and extreme conditions, echoes from
sea clutter may cause dense background clutter in the shape of
an almost solid disc.

Interference
9.4 Radar display overview
When two or more radar-equipped vessels are operating within
range of each other mutual radar interference can occur. This
usually appears as a spiral of small dots from the display centre This
type of interference is most noticeable at long ranges.
With your radar scanner connected and the radar in transmit mode,
the radar picture provides a map-like representation of the area
in which the radar is operating.

Boat's
position
Typically, your boat’s position is at the centre of the display, and its
dead ahead bearing is indicated by a vertical heading line, known
as the Ship’s Heading Marker (SHM).
On-screen targets may be large, small, bright or faint, dependent
on the size of the object, its orientation and surface. If using an
analog radar scanner, strongest target returns are displayed in
yellow with weaker returns in two shades of blue. If using a digital
radar scanner, stronger target returns show as different colors from
a range of 256 colors, providing better clarity. Be aware that the size
of a target on screen is dependent on many factors and may not
necessarily be proportional to its physical size. Nearby objects may
appear to be the same size as a distant larger objects.
104
C-Series Widescreen user reference
With experience, the approximate size of different objects can be
determined by the relative size and brightness of the echoes.
You should bear in mind that the size of each on-screen target is
affected by:
• The physical size of the reflecting object.
• The material from which the object is made. Metallic surfaces
reflect signals better than non-metallic.
• Vertical objects such as cliffs reflect signals better than sloping
objects such as sandbanks.
• High coastlines and mountainous coastal regions can be observed
at longer radar ranges. Therefore, the first sight of land may be a
mountain several miles inland from the coastline. Although the
coastline may be much nearer, it may not appear on the radar
until the vessel is closer to shore.
• Some targets, such as buoys and small boats, can be difficult
to discern, because they do not present a consistent reflecting
surface as they bob and toss about in the waves. Consequently,
these echoes tend to fade and brighten and at times, to disappear
momentarily.
• Buoys and small boats often resemble each other, but boats can
often be distinguished by their motion.
Note: You will need heading and position data for full functionality
of your radar. A fast heading sensor is also needed for operation
of MARPA and can maximize the performance of radar/chart
overlay.
Using radar
9.5 Dual range radar operation (digital
scanners only)
Dual Range radar operation enables you to view two ranges at the
same time, in separate windows.
Using your multifunction display and a digital radar scanner, you
can view either a short or a long range image in separate radar
windows. To allow this, Dual Range must be enabled in the Radar
Setup Menu (MENU > Radar Setup > Scanner Setup).
The default setting is Long, which provides a standard scanner
range. The Short setting provides a maximum range of three
nautical miles. The Long range value cannot be less than the
current Short range value. For example, if Short range is set to
3nm, Long range cannot be less than 3nm.
Limitations
• Dual Range operation is not available if MARPA is ON.
• You cannot acquire MARPA targets if Dual Range is enabled.
• Chart-sync and chart overlay are temporarily disabled when Dual
Range is enabled.
Using Dual Range with SuperHD radar
When using the Short Dual Range option, a SuperHD radar
operates in HD mode only. When using the Long Dual Range
option, a SuperHD radar operates in SuperHD mode for all ranges:

information in the following order:
1. Bearing from origin to destination, that is, intended course.
2. Locked heading from an Autopilot.
3. Bearing to waypoint.
4. Instantaneous heading.
Note: If heading data becomes unavailable whilst in this mode,
a warning message will be shown, the status bar indicates the

Radar motion modes overview
The motion mode controls the relationship between the radar and
your boat. There are two modes:
• Relative motion.
• True motion.
The selected motion mode is displayed in the status bar. The default
setting is relative motion with zero offset.
Relative Motion (RM) with optional Vessel Offset
When the motion mode is set to Relative, the position of your boat
is fixed on the screen and all the targets move relative to the boat.
You can specify whether the boat is fixed in the centre of the window
(0 offset) or offset by 1/3 or 2/3 to increase the view ahead, as
shown below:
0 offset

In the radar application:
The default motion mode is “Relative”, with zero offset.
True Motion (TM)
When the motion mode is set to True, fixed radar targets maintain a
constant position and moving vessels (including your boat) travel
in true perspective to each other and to fixed landmasses on the
screen. As the boat’s position approaches the edge of the screen,
the radar picture is automatically reset to reveal the area ahead.
Note: If heading and position data become unavailable when
True motion is selected, a warning message will be shown, the
mode will revert to relative motion and be noted in the status bar
in brackets, for example, (TM).

• Color Gain— adjusts
the intensity (color) of
displayed targets, but
does not significantly
affect the number of
targets displayed.
Increasing the
color gain causes
more targets to be

you to determine
whether an object
is an actual target,

• Rain — the radar
scanner detects
echoes from rain or

appear on screen
as countless small

• Sea Gain — radar
echoes from waves
around your vessel
can clutter the center

MARPA can improve collision avoidance when used wisely. It is the
User’s responsibility to exercise common prudence and navigational

MARPA overview
• The target echo is weak. The target is very close to land, buoys
or other large targets.
MARPA is used for target tracking and risk analysis in the radar
application.
You can use the Mini Automatic Radar Plotting Aid (MARPA)
functions for target tracking and risk analysis. MARPA improves
collision avoidance by obtaining detailed information for
automatically tracked targets, and provides continuous, accurate,
and rapid situation evaluation. The number of targets that you can
track at any one time is dependent on the model of radar scanner
that you are using.
MARPA automatically tracks acquired targets, calculates target
bearing and range, speed and course, Closest Point of Approach
(CPA), and Time to Closest Point of Approach (TCPA).
Each target tracked can be displayed with a CPA graphic which
shows the target vessel, course and speed (as a vector) and
indicates the CPA. The calculated target data can also be shown
on your screen. Each target is continually assessed and an audible
alarm is sounded if a target becomes dangerous, or is lost.
Effective MARPA operation is dependant on accurate own-ship’s
heading and speed. Speed Over Ground (SOG) and Course Over
Ground (COG) information are required to show true target course
and speed. The better the quality of the heading and speed data,
Using radar
There are conditions where acquiring a target may become difficult.
These same conditions may be a factor in successfully tracking a
target. Some of the conditions are:
• The target or your own ship is making rapid manoeuvres.
• Choppy sea state conditions exist and the target is buried in
excessive sea clutter or in deep swells.
• Choppy sea state conditions exist yielding poor stability; own
boat’s heading data is very unstable.
• Inadequate heading data.
Symptoms of such conditions are that acquisition is difficult and the
MARPA vectors are unstable; the symbol wanders away from the
target, locks on to another target or changes to a lost symbol target.
If any of these conditions are present, acquisition and tracking may
need to be re-initiated or, in some cases be impossible to maintain.
Improving the quality of the heading data will reduce the effect of
the other conditions.
How a MARPA risk is assessed
Each target is monitored to see if it will be within a certain distance
from your boat within a certain time. If so, the target is designated
as dangerous and an audible warning is sounded along with an
on-screen warning being shown. The target symbol changes to
125
the dangerous target symbol and flashes to indicate that it is a
dangerous target. Pressing the appropriate soft key will silence the
alarm and remove the warning.
If a target is lost, either because the MARPA software has lost
contact with it, or because it has moved out of range, an audible
alarm is sounded and an on-screen warning appears. The
on-screen symbol will change to the target lost symbol. Pressing the
appropriate soft key will silence the alarm and remove the on-screen
warning and the target lost symbol.

Effective range for MARPA targets
MARPA target acquisition is only available at radar range scales of
up to 12nm, although tracking continues at all ranges.
If you change to a smaller range scale, targets may be beyond the
range of your scanner and will be lost. In such cases, an on-screen
warning will indicate that the target is off-screen.
Status symbols for MARPA targets
Each target is shown in the radar display as a symbol, which
indicates its status:
Dangerous target
Safe target
Lost target
With the display set in True mode, the vectors of your vessel and
the target are shown extended to their intersection point. The
CPA is shown as a line that is placed on your vessel’s vector at
the point of the CPA. The length and direction of the line indicates
the distance and bearing of the target at CPA. The text indicates
CPA and TCPA. The text next to the target symbol indicates its true
course and speed.

10.1 AIS overview
The AIS feature enables you to receive certain information
broadcast by other vessels, and add them as a target in the Chart
and Radar applications.
With an optonal AIS receiver connected to your multifunction
display, you can:
• Display targets for any other AIS-equipped vessels.
• Display voyage information being broadcasted by these targets,
such as their position, course, speed and rate of turn.
Vectors can be displayed for each target. These vectors indicate
the direction of travel and rate of turn of the vessel and the distance
it will travel over a specified period of time (COG/SOG vector).
Targets displayed with their vectors are referred to as ‘active targets’
and are scaled according to the size of the vessel. The larger the
vessel, the larger the target. You can either display all targets or
just dangerous targets.
How AIS Works
• Display basic or detailed information for each target vessel,
including safety critical target data.
• Set up a safe zone around your boat.
• View AIS alarm and safety related messages.
This information is displayed in the form of an overlay and additional
data is displayed in a dialog box on your chart screen, for example:
Heading
AIS uses digital radio signals to broadcast ‘real-time’ information
between vessels and shore based stations via dedicated VHF
frequencies. This information is used to identify and track vessels in
the surrounding area and to provide fast, automatic and accurate
collision avoidance data. AIS will augment your radar application,
as it can operate in radar blind spots and can detect smaller AIS
fitted vessels.
Note: Smaller vessels do not have to be fitted with AIS and whilst
it is mandatory for larger commercial vessels to carry AIS, its use
is not. Therefore, you should not assume that your multifunction
display will display ALL vessels in your area. Due prudence
and judgement should be exercised. AIS should be used to
complement radar, not substitute it.

The AIS system displays other AIS equipped vessels in the
surrounding area as triangular targets overlaid on a chart or radar
window. Up to 100 targets are displayed. As the vessel’s status
changes, the symbol for the target will change accordingly.
Raymarine recommends that you use the simulator to familiarize
yourself with the AIS function. When the system simulator is
switched on (Menu > System Setup > Simulator), it displays 20
AIS targets within a 25nm range. These targets are displayed using
the appropriate AIS targets status symbol, and move around the
screen as if they were real targets.
C-Series Widescreen user reference
Note: Incoming safety messages cannot be displayed while the
simulator is switched on.
10.2 AIS prerequisites
You must have suitable AIS hardware connected to your
multifunction display to make use of the AIS functionality.
In order to run AIS, you will need:
• A receive-only unit or a full transceiver (a unit that sends and
receives).
• A VHF antenna - this is usually supplied with the AIS system.
• A GPS - to provide position data.
• A Compass - although not essential, will improve speed
calculations.
Note: A receiver will allow you to receive data about other
vessels in your area but will not allow other vessels to ‘see’ you.
A full transceiver transmits and receives AIS data, and therefore
allows you to receive data about other vessels. It also enables
other AIS-equipped vessels to see and receive information about
your vessel. This could include position, course, speed and rate
of turn data.
When the AIS unit is connected to your multifunction display, the
status of the unit is indicated by an AIS icon in the transducer data
box.
You will now need to specify the 38,400 baud setting (Menu >
System Setup > System Integration > NMEA Port Setting) for the
NMEA port that communicates with the AIS transceiver or receiver.
Using AIS
135
10.3 Classes of AIS data
There are two classes of AIS data; each class supports a different
range of AIS data.
AIS data is defined as Class A or Class B. The sending and
receiving of Class A data is compulsory for larger vessels. You will
therefore be able to view all larger vessels on your AIS display.
Class B data is applicable to smaller vessels and is not compulsory.
You should not therefore assume that your AIS is displaying all
smaller vessels in your area.
Note: Not all AIS receivers will decode all information and not
all of the Class A vessels input all of the required AIS data. For
example, some inexpensive AIS Class B receivers do not decode
and output information such as the ship’s name, IMO number and
vessel draft/beam/length, destination and so on.
Your AIS receiver or transceiver may support additional AIS data
that is not decoded by the multifunction display.
The following table lists the AIS information that is decoded by your
multifunction display. (Y = Yes; N = No):

10.9 Using AIS to avoid collisions
You can use the AIS safe zone and safety message functions to
avoid collisions with other vessels and objects.
Safe Zones
A safe zone is a ring centred on your boat within which a target is
considered dangerous. It is displayed on radar or chart windows
as a red ring.
This AIS safe zone uses the same criteria as MARPA and will deem
a target dangerous if it comes within a specified distance of your
vessel (closest point of approach or CPA) within a specified time
(time to closest point of approach or TCPA). The CPA and TCPA are
calculated using COG/SOG and position from the AIS target.
When your system recognizes a dangerous AIS target:
• Place a waypoint on your chart/radar to mark the sending vessel’s
position.
• Select to GOTO the sending vessel’s position.
Note: You will not receive any safety messages in Simulator
mode (Menu > System Setup > Simulator).
Displaying safety-critical AIS information
In the chart or radar application:
1. Move the cursor over the relevant AIS target.
2. Press the AIS DATA softkey until the ON option is highlighted.
3. Press the OK button.
• The target symbol changes to red and flashes.
• An alarm pop-up is displayed (this can be disabled if required).
• An alarm sounds (this can be disabled if required).
Note: When the AIS receiver is connected and functioning, the
system will check for dangerous targets within the safe zone and
if enabled issue an alarm whenever necessary. Dangerous target
alarm operates irrespective of the ON or OFF status of the AIS
target display, or the VISIBLE/HIDDEN status of the safe zone
ring.
Safety Messages
When the status of the AIS Safety Messages function is set to ON in
the Menu > AIS Layer Setup Menu, any incoming safety messages
from surrounding vessels, shore stations and mobile stations, are
displayed in a pop-up box. If known, the message will include the
sending vessel’s position in lat/lon. You now have the option to:
• Remove the message (ACKNOWLEDGE).

10.11 AIS alarms
10.12 Buddy tracking
The AIS functions generate a number of alarms to alert you to
dangerous or lost targets.
You can configure your display to notify you when an AIS-equipped
friend or “buddy” comes within range of your vessel.
In addition to the dangerous target alarm previously described, the
system generates an alarm when a dangerous target becomes a
lost target i.e. its signal has not been received for 20 seconds.
The Buddy Tracking feature enables you to add AIS-equipped
friends and regular contacts to a “Buddy List” on your multifunction
display. As soon as a vessel on your Buddy List sails into the range
of your AIS receiver, the vessel icon changes to indicate this.
Your AIS receiver generates local alarms which are displayed and
sounded on your multifunction display whenever an alarm condition
exists on the unit.
Local AIS alarms
When the connected AIS unit generates an alarm, your multifunction
display shows a local alarm message and indicates the alarm status
in the data bar icon.
Active AIS alarms list
The active alarm list shows the status of each local alarm. This list
can either be accessed via the Menu > AIS Layer Setup Menu, or
from the Menu > Alarms Setup Menu.
Note: When local AIS alarms are acknowledged, the target
is shown as dangerous (flashing, with a red outline), and the
active alarm status icon is displayed until the target is no longer
dangerous.
Acknowledging AIS alarms
In the chart or radar application:
1. Press the ACKNOWLEDGE softkey.
Note: An AIS alarm remains active until it is acknowledged on
your multifunction display.
142
How it works
When the AIS Layer is enabled in the chart or radar application, AIS
targets are shown on your display. You can add any AIS target to
a “Buddy List”, each entry consisting of an MMSI number, and an
optional name. Subsequently, whenever Buddy Tracking is enabled
on your mutlifunction display, and a “Buddy” vessel with an MMSI
number sails into the range of your AIS receiver, an AIS Buddy icon
is displayed. Up to 100 vessels may be added to the Buddy List.
Pre-requisites
The following items are required for the Buddy Tracking feature:
• For the purposes of using the Buddy Tracking feature, it is
assumed that your display is already connected to a suitable
AIS receiver.
• Only AIS-equipped vessels will be detected.

Fishfinder screen
Warning: Sonar operation
The fishfinder displays a scrolling image of the seabed, updating
from the right as your vessel makes progress.
• NEVER operate the sounder with the boat out of
the water.
Example fishfinder screen
• NEVER touch the transducer face when the sounder
is powered on.
• SWITCH OFF the sounder if divers are likely to be
within 25 ft (5 m) of the transducer.
Fishfinder overview
The fishfinder application provides a detailed view of the fish and
seabed under your vessel, enabling you to accurately distinguish
between different sizes of fish, bottom structure, and underwater
obstacles. The standard fishfinder image is a historical, scrolling
bottom graph with range and sonar frequency automatically selected
by the system.
The various functions and features of the fishfinder application
include:
The fishfinder window includes the following aspects:
• Preset modes for easy optimal operation.
• The bottom together with any bottom structure such as reefs and
shipwrecks etc.
• Display modes (Zoom, A-Scope or Bottom Lock).
• Target images indicating fish.
• Adjustable range and zoom.
• A status bar noting the frequency and gain settings.
• Finding bottom feeding fish with the bottom lock display mode.
• The bottom depth.
• Clutter and gain options to simplify the image.
• Pausing and adjusting the speed of the scrolling image.

12.2 The sonar image
(animated icon)
Interpreting the seabed using sonar
• Icon animated - fishfinder is operating.
It is important to understand how to correctly interpret the seabed
structure represented in the fishfinder display.
• Icon static - the fishfinder transducer is connected but not
transmitting.
The seabed usually produces a strong echo.
• Icon greyed-out - no fishfinder transducer is connected.
The following images show how different seabed conditions are
represented in the sonar display:
A hard bottom (sand) produces a thin line
How the fishfinder works
The fishfinder application uses a Digital Sounder Module (DSM) and
a suitable sonar transducer. The DSM interprets signals from the
transducer and builds up a detailed underwater view.
The transducer is located on the bottom of the boat, it sends pulses
of sound waves into the water and measures the time it takes for the
sound wave to travel to the bottom and back. The returning echoes
are affected by bottom structure and by any other objects in their
path, for example reefs, wrecks, shoals or fish.
A soft bottom (mud or seaweed cover) produces a wide line
.
The dark layer indicates a strong signal.
A rocky or uneven bottom or a wreck produces an irregular
image with peaks and troughs
Note: Some transducers include additional sensors to measure
water temperature and/or speed.
Using the fishfinder
D6855-2
Colors are used on the display to indicate the strength of the returns.
You can use this information to determine the bottom structure,
the size of fish and other objects in the water, such as debris or
air bubbles
The dark layers indicate a good echo; the lighter areas indicate
weaker echoes. This could mean that the upper layer is soft and
therefore allowing sound waves to pass to the more solid layer
below.
151
It is also possible that the sound waves are making two complete
trips – hitting the seabed, bouncing off the vessel, then reflecting
off the seabed again. This can happen if the water is shallow, the
seabed is hard, or the gain is set high.
Factors influencing the sonar display
The quality and accuracy of the display can be influenced by a
number of factors including vessel speed, depth, object size,
background noise and transducer frequency.
Vessel speed
The shape of the target changes along with your speed. Slower
speeds return flatter, more horizontal marks. Higher speeds cause
the target to thicken and arch slightly, until at fast speeds the mark
resembles a double vertical line.
Target depth
The closer the target to the surface, the larger the mark on screen.
Note: The depth of individual targets can be displayed by
switching on the Target Depth ID in the fishfinder setup menu.
The number of target depths displayed is influenced by the fish
alarm sensitivity level.
Water depth
As sea depth increases signal strength decreases, resulting in a
lighter on-screen image of the bottom.
Size of the target
The larger the target, the larger the return on the fishfinder display.
The size of a fish target is also dependent upon the size of the fish’s
swim bladder rather than its overall size. The swim bladder varies in
size between different breeds of fish.
Transducer frequency
The same target will appear differently when the transducer
frequency is changed. The lower the frequency the broader the
mark.
152
C-Series Widescreen user reference
Clutter / Background noise
The fishfinder picture may be impaired by echoes received from
floating or submerged debris, air bubbles or even the boats
movement. This is known as ‘background noise’ or ‘clutter’ and is
controlled by the gain modes. The system will automatically control
the gain settings according to the depth and water conditions. You
can however adjust the gain settings manually if you prefer.
12.3 Fishfinder presets
The fishfinder provides you with four preset configurations available
on the fishfinder toolbar. These enable you to quickly select
appropriate settings tailored for various situations.
Each preset has been configured to provide the best operating
parameters for the fishfinder. However, it is possible to manually
adjust the presets if necessary. The four presets are:
• Single — this preset provides quick access to a single-frequency
configuration, suitable for general fishing conditions.
• Dual — this preset provides a dual frequency configuration.
You can either display two different frequencies at the same
time in one window, or display one frequency at full-screen on
your master display and the other frequency at full-screen on an
additional networked display.
• Shallow — this preset opitimizes the fishfinder display for shallow
waters.
• Deep — this preset opitimizes the fishfinder display for deep
waters.
Display modes
When using presets, you can either select the relevant preset and
start using the default configuration immediately, or you can adjust
the preset to your needs using the display modes:
• Zoom
• Bottom Lock
• A-Scope
Any changes you make to a preset are retained when you switch
off the power to your multifunction display.

12.5 Fishfinder range
The Range and Range Shift functions enable you to change the
range of depth displayed by the fishfinder.
Range
The Range function enables you to define the range of depth that
you see in the fishfinder display.
By default, the fishfinder display shows the shallowest required
range, enabling you to clearly see what is near the surface of the
water under your vessel. This is useful for finding smaller fish that
feed nearer the surface. An example of this kind of depth range is 0
to 200 feet. In this case, the range is 200 feet, so 200 feet of water
will be displayed on-screen at any one time.
Bottom Lock is selected for individual fishfinder windows and can
either replace (ON) or appear alongside (SPLIT) the standard
fishfinder image.
Enabling Bottom Lock
From the fishfinder main screen:
1. Press the appropriate ADJUST... softkey.
2. For dual frequency screens select FREQ1 or FREQ2 to select
which frequency display you wish to change.
3. Press the SELECT VIEW softkey.
4. Use the trackpad up/down to select BOTTOM LOCK.
5. Press OK when complete.
Adjusting the bottom lock range/position
There may be circumstances in which you want to see a less
detailed image showing a greater amount of depth beneath your
vessel. This is useful for locating bigger fish and other objects
located closer to the seabed such as wrecks. An example of this
kind of depth range is 0 to 1000 feet or greater. In this case, the
range is 1000 feet, and you will be able to see 1000 feet of water
beneath your vessel, without needing to scroll the display up or
down.
Range Shift
The Range Shift function enables you to define which area of the
overall depth you want to be able to see on-screen. For example,
if your range is 5000 feet and the display is showing the surface
(0 feet) at the very top of the display, and 5000 feet at the bottom
of the display, you can use the Range Shift function to focus on a
different 5000 feet range. For example, 2000 feet at the very top of
the screen, and 7000 feet at the very bottom of the screen.
With the fishfinder in bottom lock mode:
1. Use the appropriate softkeys and the trackpad to set Full /
Split screen, Bottom lock range and Bottom shift values as
appropriate.

12.6 Fishfinder presentation options
The PRESENTATION softkey gives you access to a features
and functions which enhance the fishfinder display and provide
additional on-screen functionality.
Presentation options include:
• Gain settings to enhance display clarity.
• Low (Cruising) is ideal for viewing fishfinder images with a
minimum of background noise as you are cruising to your fishing
spot. Only the strongest echoes are displayed.
• Medium (Trolling) is a slightly higher gain setting that displays
more detail. This is the default mode.
• High (Fishing) provides the most detail, but also displays the
most background noise and surface clutter.
• Power to the transducer.
• VRM features for measuring depth distance.
• Dual frequency view options.
• Scroll pause and resume.
Sonar gain
The gain settings alter the way the DSM processes background
noise (also called clutter). Adjusting the gain settings can improve
the sonar image, however for optimum performance in most
conditions, we recommend that you use the auto settings.
The gain adjusts the return threshold (echo strength) above which
the fishfinder will show an object on the screen.
Manual
If necessary you can set the gain controls manually, between a
value of 1 to 100 (default value is 75). This value should be set
high enough to see fish and bottom detail but without too much
background noise. Generally a high gain is used in deep and/or
clear water; a low gain in shallow and/or murky water.
The new values remain set even when you switch off the display,
they are applied to both the active window and any other fishfinder
windows with the same frequency.

The new values remain set even when you switch off the display,
they are applied to both the active window and any other fishfinder
windows displaying the same frequency.
The new values remain set even when you switch off the display
and are applied to all fishfinder windows.
Fishfinder color gain
You can adjust the color gain to change the signal strength threshold
for the strongest color in your fishfinder display.
Color gain sets the lower limit for the strongest echo color. All
echoes with a signal strength above this value are displayed in the
strongest color. Those with a weaker value are divided equally
between the remaining colors.
• Setting a low value produces wide band for the weakest color, but
a small signal band for the other colors.
Fishfinder color threshold
The color threshold setting determines the range of colors used on
screen. The effect of this is to set a color threshold below which
targets are not shown. For example a low setting would result in
only the strongest (orange and red) targets being displayed.
Adjusting the fishfinder color threshold
From the main fishfinder screen:
There are two color gain modes:

Fishfinder TVG (Time Varied Gain)
• Manual. You can set the color gain manually, between a value
of 1 to 100.
The Time Varied Gain (TVG) function reduces the amount of clutter
in the fishfinder display by varying the gain throughout the column of
water. This function is useful for reducing the appearance of ‘noise’.
• Setting a high value gives a wide band for the strongest color, but
a small signal band for the other colors.

so that only the strongest echoes are displayed.
• Decreasing the TVG value reduces the maximum depth. A low
TVG value has little effect on gain in shallow water.

Depth and distance with the fishfinder
You can use VRM markers and depth lines to help you determine
depths and distances in the fishfinder display.
The fishfinder display provides a number of features to help you
determine depths and distances. These features are illustrated and
described in more detail below:
The power setting for the DSM sonar can be adjusted to suit
different conditions, such as water depth and vessel speed. By
default, the power setting is adjusted automatically to suit current
conditions, but the setting can also be adjusted manually if required.
• Lower power levels are suitable for depths of less than 2.4 m (8 ft).
• Higher power levels are generally more suited to depths greater
than 3.7 m (12 ft).
There are two power modes:
• Auto. In Auto mode, the power setting is automatically adjusted
to suit current conditions.
• Manual. You can set the power setting manually, between a value
of 1 to 100%, in 10% increments.

indicate the depth from the surface. These are switched on/off via
the Fishfinder Display Setup menu
• Depth Target ID - depths noted against recognized targets.
The sensitivity of these IDs is directly linked to the Fish Alarm
sensitivity; the greater the fish alarm sensitivity, the greater the
number of labelled returns. These targets are switched on/off via
the Fishfinder Display Setup menu.
• Cursor depth - the depth and the distance from your boat marked
by the cursor, is indicated in the data bar at the top of the screen.
This performs in a similar way to a VRM, but without lines.

Adjusting the scroll speed
Adjusting the fishfinder scrolling speed
You can adjust the speed at which the display scrolls, but the same
section of the bottom is displayed regardless of scrolling speed.
A faster speed displays more detail. This is useful when you are
looking for fish. If you select a slower speed the information remains
on the display for longer.
From the fishfinder screen:
The following options are available:
• Manual. This allows you to set the scroll speed as a percentage of
the maximum scroll rate for that depth. The lower the percentage,
the slower the image will scroll. The default is manual adjustment
with a full speed scroll (100%).
• Automatic. The system automatically adjusts the scroll speed,
based on boat speed:
– Less than, or equal to 0.5 kt, scroll speed is constant at 10%.
– Between 0.5–15 kt, scroll speed varies linearly with boat speed.
– Greater than 15 kt, scroll speed is constant at 100%.
Pausing the scrolling image
You can pause the display to see a ‘snapshot’ of the image. When a
display is paused, scrolling stops but the depth indication continues
to be updated. Scroll pause/resume affects the currently selected
fishfinder frequency (200 kHz, 50 kHz or BOTH).
If you are in dual frequency mode, you can pause one frequency
while the other continues to scroll. This allows you to inspect a
paused image, while the other frequency continues to scroll and
detect fish.
Note: Scrolling will resume if the frequency changes. For
example an automatic change of frequency resulting from of a
change in depth.

21.1 Servicing and safety
21.2 Routine equipment checks
Your Raymarine product must be serviced by authorized personnel
to ensure effective and safe performance.
Raymarine strongly recommends that you complete a number of
routine checks to ensure the correct and reliable operation of your
equipment.
• Raymarine equipment must be serviced only by authorized
Raymarine service technicians. They will ensure that service
procedures and any replacement parts used will not affect
performance. There are no user serviceable parts in any
Raymarine product.
Complete the following checks on a regular basis:
• Examine all cables for signs of damage or wear and tear.
• Check that all cables are securely connected.
• Some products generate high voltages, so never handle the
cables or connectors when power is being supplied to the
equipment.
• When powered on, all electrical equipment produces
electromagnetic fields. These fields can cause adjacent pieces of
electrical equipment to interact with one another, with an adverse
effect on operation. In order to minimize these effects and enable
you to get the best possible performance from your Raymarine
equipment, guidelines are given in the installations manual.
These guidelines enable you to ensure minimum interaction
between different items of equipment, and achieve optimum
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).
• Always report any EMC-related problem to your nearest
Raymarine dealer. We use such information to improve our
quality standards.
• In some installations, it may not be possible to prevent the
equipment from being affected by external influences. Generally
this will not damage the display, but it can lead to spurious
re-setting action, or momentarily may result in faulty operation.
• At the end of the useful working life of this product, it should
disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

21.3 Cleaning
21.4 Cleaning the display case
Best cleaning practices.
The display unit is a sealed unit and does not require regular
cleaning. If it is necessary to clean the unit, follow this basic
procedure:
When cleaning this product:
• Do NOT wipe the display screen with a dry cloth, as this
could scratch the screen coating.
• Do NOT use abrasive, or acid or ammonia based products.
• Do NOT use a jet wash.
1. Switch off the power to the display.
2. Wipe the display with a clean, soft cloth (a microfibre cloth is
ideal).
3. If necessary, use isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or a mild detergent to
remove grease marks.
Note: Do NOT use IPA or any other solvent or detergent on the
screen itself.

21.6 Resetting your display
A coating is applied to the display screen. This makes it water
repellent, and prevents glare. To avoid damaging this coating, follow
this procedure:
Your display may be reset to its factory default settings if required.
1. Switch off the power to the display.
2. Rinse the screen with fresh water to remove all dirt particles
and salt deposits.
3. Allow the screen to dry naturally.
4. If any smears remain, very gently wipe the screen with a clean
microfibre cleaning cloth (available from an opticians).
There are two types of reset operation:
Your multifunction display may be restored to its factory default
settings.
• Settings reset.
• Settings and data reset.
