eS128, Quantum Q24C, Evolution AP, Lighthouse II 17.46). Is there a way to acquire a MARPA target from the chart display with the radar overlay turned on? Instructions indicate that I need to switch to the radar display to acquire a MARPA target. I am able to acquire from radar and see on the chart display. Any way to acquire without leaving the chart display? Thank you.
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum spt7566,

When operating with the latest available a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD software (v19.03 at the time of this response), should the MFD be interfaced to all of the following:
- a compatible radar transducer
- a source of GPS data (may be internal to the MFD) and have acquired a GPS position FIX
- a source of heading data (10Hz stabilized heading data preferred)
then it would indeed be possible to acquire a MARPA target within Chart application after having configured the Radar overlay ON. A MARPA target would then be acquired by bringing up the context menu by either
- positioning the cursor over the target and then pressing the OK button or
- holding ones finger pressed on the screen over the target.
When the context menu is displayed, you will then find the ACQUIRE TARGET option listed at the bottom of the scroll-able menu.
