RE: [CA11] C70 to Axiom 9 Upgrade
I swapped out the Axiom 9 with a new one and had the same problem with the GPS. It is hit or miss if it works and takes a long time to acquire a fix. Sometimes over 20 min. It is flush mounted in the dash with the instruments and VHF radio above it, also flush mounted.

Where is the antenna on the Axiom GPS? Front on the screen somewhere?

Would the VHF radio be interfering with it somehow?

It's a clear view of the sky as the panel is in an open location of the boat.

I think there is Raystar 125 that was integrated to my C70. Can that be used as an external GPS? What wires would be needed? It was wired into a SeaTalk1 wire for the C70.

Currently I have my VHF radio networked in with a E70196 VHF NMEA 0183 to STng Converter Kit, to get it GPS information for the DSC. Would something have to change with an external antenna ?

Would at RF suppression ferrites fix the GPS reception problem ?
