View Full Version : BIG chart plotter on SS boats

07-04-2011, 08:18 AM
When I received my X25SS, it came without the chartplotter option (on the BIG). Looking through system settings, one of the items happens to be "feature unlock". When you enter that, it says available features to unlock:
- Chart plotter.
To receive an unlock code, contact medallion instrumentation.

I got in touch with them paid around 180 dollars and received an unlock code which activated the chart plotter. So now when i press on the cross-hair button under the cruise control one, the chart plotter comes up.

Problem is that it says that there is no GPS data available. So, i was wondering, can the chart plotter feed off the Zero GPS antenna? or am I supposed to install another one? Haven't purchased any maps yet until i resolve this issue. Also i was told maps would be loaded to the BIG via an SD card. Any idea where that would be located? Or am i just supposed to do it through USB?
