Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Shay,

No files were attached to your thread.

Raystar 130 GPS Sensor failures are quite rare. Please verify that the MFD's Data Sources feature has been configured to select the Raystar 130 GPS Sensor as the system's GPS data source. Close proximity of a VHF antenna to the GPS sensor may account for such problems. Please click here to view a FAQ addressing this subject. Please respond with the distance between the VHF antenna and the Raystar 130 GPS Sensor.

Additionally, VHF radios draw a significant amount of power when transmitting. The symptoms described may be indicative batteries which are in need of maintenance, are weak, and/or are undercharged or may be indicative a problem with how the electronics power circuits have been installed. It is considered to be a best practice that VHF radios and AIS transceivers be installed on a dedicated circuit. Should the Raystar 130 GPS Sensor be installed as specified within the referenced FAQ and powered as specified above, then it is recommended that the power and ground connections from the equipment though distribution panel, to the batteries be inspected to ensure that all connections are free of corrosion, have clean contacts, and the connections are tight. If so, then the vessel be connected to shore power, its batteries be permitted to reach full charge, and that while still connected to shore power that the system be tested again. If the problem cannot be duplicated under the above listed conditions then it would be recommended that the batteries be load tested and replaced if necessary. If the problem can be duplicated under the above listed conditions then it would be recommended that the Raystar 130 GPS Sensor be sent to Raymarine’s Product Repair Center to be bench checked / serviced.
