When I returned the 2nd corroded-up Raymarine radome to them for "repair",
I also included the RL70CRC color chart plotter/radar display unit with it.
Raymarine found one hardware fault in it and lots of upgraded firmware to
put in it from all the firmware program corrections and bug fixes
Might not be a bad idea to give Raymarine a call with that model and serial
number in your hand so they can look to see if you need a firmware upgrade
or hardware repair. Their upgrade on ours fixed a niggling problem we had
trying to get the screen to point up to match the boat's course correctly.
It also had an error in the Seatalk communications. Our Raymarine compass
sensor now calibrates properly and the Smart Heading Sensor gyro-compass
unit now gives proper input to the RL70CRC display.
I think you have a firmware fault that needs fixing.
