RayTech 6.2 reporting that E86026 Navionics Multicard Reader needed
RayTech 6.2 reporting that E86026 Navionics Multicard Reader needed

When running RayTech Planner / RNS software the following alert message will be generated whenever the user has plugged a Navionics chart card into any memory card reader other than the E86026 Navionics Multicard Reader.

This memory card reader which was designed to be plugged into the PC's USB port had been developed by Navionics and was also sold by manufacturers of PC navigational software supporting Navionics cartography (ex. Fugawi, etc.).

If encountering this message when using a Navionics Multicard Reader and RayTech Planner / RNS 6.2, then it is recommended that the RayTech RNS / Planner 6.2 software be uninstalled and that RayTech RNS / Planner 6.1 be installed on the PC. As the Navionics Multicard Readers are no longer and have not been in some time, it is recommended those lacking a Navionics Multicard Reader and needing to plan waypoints and routes instead consider using Raymarine Voyage Planner PC software for such purposes.

This same alert may also be encountered within systems featuring PCs running RayTech RNS software which had been networked via an Ethernet (SeaTalkhs network) to a system featuring E-Series Classic MFDs or C-Series Widescreen MFDs. In such systems, the MFD is responsible for serving Navionics cartography to the PC running the RayTech RNS 6.x software (i.e. the Navionics chart card is inserted into the CF memory card reader of one of the MFDs).
- Should this problem be encountered within a system featuring E-Series Classic MFDs and a PC running RayTech RNS 6.2, then it is recommended that the RayTech RNS 6.2 software be uninstalled and that RayTech RNS 6.1 be installed on the PC.
- Should this problem be encountered within a system featuring C-Series Widescreen MFDs and a PC, then it is recommended that the Navionics Chart layer not be used. Alternatively, the Raster or C-Map Chart layers would be used for cartography.


UPDATE: Raymarine has ceased sales of Voyage Planner software through Raymarine's Charts Store and through its dealers. A limited number of boxed copies of the Raymarine Voyager Planner software may be found within dealer inventories. While Raymarine has not yet announced a replacement planning application, it is quite possible that Raymarine may do so in the future. At this time, Navionics is recommending Navigation Planner PC planning software for its customers. Navigation Planner features support for Raymarine product and their waypoint symbol sets.
