Some SR100 weather features not working while others are working

If having issues with some of supported SR100 weather features not working while others are found to be working, the problem may be rooted in low satellite signal strength (check the signal strength indication specified within the upper right hand corner of the Weather application's titlebar) or failure to have updated the SR100 with the latest software. The latest SR100 software update also added support fo Sirius Satellite Radio. Please additionally note that the marine zone forecast feature is dependent upon the vessel being in the marine zone or the Weather application being commanded to provide the forecast at the cursor's position. Please note that this feature is also dependent upon the marine zone boundaries which have been hard coded into the MFD's software. Please note that NOAA has changed the boundaries of several marine zones since software updates for the E-Series Classic MFDs wer retired. Correspondingly, the MFD may be report that it is unable to access marine zone forecasts for some marine zones.

The latest and final software release for the SR100 is version SDR200707152118 released in January 2008.

Upgrading the SR100 using a E-Series Display Unit
The SR100 software can be upgraded through a connection to an E-Series display. The upgrade requires a blank CompactFlash card and a CompactFlash reader/writer.
To complete the software upgrade you must have all of the following parts:
