E7D problems
My system:
-E7D with recall work performed. Not the latest software but somewhere close. Not sure i want to update.
-SpX5 pilot. Updated approx a yr ago. Cannot recal the compass. Worked fine before. Why cant you move the lookup tables to card and then reinsert after update?
-HD color radar. Working as long as plotter works
-AIS650 working as long as plotter works
-Standard horizon radio with NMEA connected. It works

The touchscreen on this plotter is not working right. My plotter freezes up when I attempt to change things either touchscreen or rotary knob. It gets to where nothing wakes it up. Submenus appear without being called up. When i rotate the knob to zoom in or out it sometimes goes full in or out. The cursor takes off on its own and keeps going. I had it commanding the pilot to got to cursor and twice it fell asleep offcourse and no alarms of XTE. Using chart and radar on split screen really confuses it. I've had intermittent problems since i got it back from recall.

RE: E7D problems
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Mark,

While it is recommended that Raymarine products be maintained with the latest product software updated, the symptoms reported with the MFD are indicative of hardware issues rather than software. Accordingly, it is recommended that the MFD be sent to Raymarine’s Product Repair Center to be bench checked / serviced.

Regarding the problem reported with the autopilot, if not exceeding the rate of turn limits when calibrating the fluxgate compass, this problem may be rooted within the autopilot's fluxgate or with course computer itself. Please click here to view a FAQ addressing how to test the fluxgate compass. Should the fluxgate compass test not identify any fault with the fluxgate compass, then it would be recommended that the autopilot course computer be sent to Raymarine’s Product Repair Center to be bench checked / serviced.
