Software version 17 for MFD
Received an email from Saltwater Sportsman showing the new features of version 17 for Raymarine MFDs. Says it is available for download, but all I can find is version 16. When will the new version be available?

Thanks, I am going to install the update today and am confused as to wether I still have to do a reset when finished? I remember reading somewhere it is not necessary with Lighthouse II. Please confirm. Thanks

RE: Software version 17 for MFD
Do I read the update notes correctly that if i have a c-map chart and a lighthouse chart both in the MFD that on startup it will always display the lighthouse chart and I will have to manually switch to the CMap chart. That's a drag. I use Cmap as my primary chart and keep the lighthouse chart as a second reference if I feel I need it. With this update I will have to pull the lighthouse chart out of the MFD.

RE: Software version 17 for MFD
Randy,

It appears that you have indeed incorrectly interpreted the following:
"Automatic Chart Selection
Upon opening chart app instance the app will automatically check for cards in the card reader and open the appropriate chart. If multiple chart cards are installed, the app will open by priority of Lighthouse, then Navionics or CMAP."

In prior LightHouse software releases, the default Chart Selection configuration setting for each Chart application page/pane had been Navionics Nautical Charts. With the introduction of v17.45 software, should no chart selection has been previously configured and all three of the supported chart cards are present within the system, then the default chart shown within each Chart application page/pane will be Lighthouse. Should Navionics and C-Map chart cards be present within the system, then default chart shown within each Chart application page/pane will be Navionics Nautical Charts. Should only a C-Map chart card be present within the system, then default chart shown within each Chart application page/pane will be C-Map Navigational Chart.
