Adding Navionics Platinum Support to E-Series High Performance Multifunction Navigation Displays (Instructions for Users with Mac Computers)
Welcome to the next dimension in marine navigation.Raymarine E-Series with Navionics Platinum multi-dimensional charts. This guide will take you step-by-step through the process of downloading the E-Series software from Raymarine.com, unpacking them, transferring the upgrade to a CompactFlash memory card, and then installing the update in your display. Before you get started, there are 2 pieces of hardware that are necessary to complete this process: A blank CompactFlash (CF) memory cartridge of 8 Megabytes capacity or larger. Raymarine recommends using San Disk brand CF cards with E-Series. Other brands may work for this process but San Disk cards offer the best performance with E-Series. A CF reader/writer device for your PC or Mac. This device will be used to copy the files downloaded from Raymarine.com to the CF card. The CF reader/writer could be an external device (e.g. connected by USB to your computer), or could be internal/built in. The CF reader should be installed according to the manufacturers instructions. If you need assistance choosing a CF card or reader/writer, please take a look at Answer ID 1042, Choosing Compact Flash Cards and Reader/Writers, in the Raymarine Knowledgebase. Point your browser to http://www.raymarine.com/support. Choose the Find Answers link, then enter 1042 into the search box and search by Answer ID.
Downloading the E-Series Update from Raymarine.com 1. Point your web browser to http://www.raymarine.com/platinum/. This will take you to the E-Series update page. 2. Click the link to download the software upgrade. The file you are downloading is named ESeries_v230.zip. Please save it to your desktop, or somewhere else where you can easily find it. Unpacking the Upgrade Files and Preparing the Upgrade Card 3. Use Stuffit Expander to decompress the ZIP package. Again, unpack it to somewhere you will easily be able to find the contents. 4. Inside the folder you will find 2 files, and a PDF version of these instructions. These 2 must be copied to the root of your upgrade CompactFlash memory card: i. Autorun.dob ii. E_App_Upg_230.pkg 5. Eject your CompactFlash memory card from your CF reader/writer according to the manufacturers instructions. The card is now ready for upgrading your E-Series display.

Backing Up Existing Waypoint, Route and Track Data. NOTE: While this software upgrade is not intended to erase data stored in the ESeries internal memory, it is strongly recommended to perform a backup before upgrading software should anything interrupt the upgrade process. You can utilize the same CompactFlash memory card used to perform the software upgrade for backup, or you can use a different card if you wish.
6. Turn on your E-Series display. At the navigation disclaimer, press the OK key. 7. Insert the backup CompactFlash memory card into the E-Series card slot. 8. If not already in chartplotter mode, press the PAGE key, and select a page containing a chartplotter application. 9. Press the DATA key.
10. From the soft keys along the bottom of the screen press ARCHIVE AND TRANSFER. 11. Press the SAVE TO CARD soft key. 12. Press SAVE ALL to copy all of the units stored data to the Compact Flash card. 13. The data has now been backed up, and you may proceed with the software upgrade. Installing the Software Update into the E-Series Display 14. Turn off the power to your E-Series display unit, and remove any installed map cards. 15. Insert the Compact Flash Card containing the software update into the E-Series card slot.
If your data backup card and upgrade card are the same, it will already be in the slot from the previous backup procedure.
16. Turn on the power to the E-Series display unit. 17. The display will power up to a Software Update Utility screen like the one pictured below.

10.4 Changing how the radar picture is shown
The radar picture can be shown in one of three modes:
10.5 Getting the best radar picture
You can get a clearer radar picture by minimizing the effects of false or multiple echoes and clarifying target presentation by using the softkeys/ controls accessed using the radar softkeys. The softkeys are: Gain. Targets. VRM/EBL. Presentation. Target Tracking.
Head - up (H-UP)
Head -up is the default mode. The radar picture is shown with the boats current heading upwards. As the heading changes the picture will rotate.
North - up (N-UP)
In this mode, the radar picture is stabilized and shown with North at the top of the picture. As your boat changes its heading, the SHM will move accordingly.This mode requires heading data input.
Course - up (C-UP)
In this mode the radar picture is stabilized and shown with your current course upwards. As your boats heading changes, the SHM moves accordingly.This mode requires heading data input. If you select a new course, the picture will reset to display the new course upwards. The reference used for Course-up depends upon the information available from the following: Bearing from origin to destination, i.e. intended course. Used if a FOLLOW or GOTO is active. Locked heading from an autopilot. Used if autopilot is engaged, but no FOLLOW or GOTO is active. Instantaneous heading. Used if neither of the above is valid, the system now reassesses the course every 5o.
The effects of false echoes and clutter can be reduced by using the GAIN soft key and its associated controls to make the overall picture clearer. The AUTO settings usually give the best results although you can adjust these settings if required. If you use manual settings they are retained when the radar is set to standby or if you exit RayTech. The gain functions are: FTC Mode. Rain Mode. Sea Mode. Gain Mode. Tune.
To change the way in which the picture is shown: 1. Click Presentation on the soft key bar. 2. Click Radar Heading until the desired mode has been selected.
A variable range marker (VRM) and its associated electronic bearing line (EBL) is used to determine the range and bearing (respectively) of objects detected by the radar. A standard VRM is displayed as a circle with its center on your boats position, and its EBL is displayed as a line from the origin, to the edge of the radar screen. Both are shown as dotted lines. If you range in or out, or offset the center of the display, the original setting of the VRM/EBL remains unchanged. RayTech allows two VRMs/EBLs to be displayed at the same time. When a VRM/EBL pair is active, their bearing and range can be displayed in an associated databox. This is displayed by clicking the VRM/EBL Box soft key to ON.
To measure the range and/or bearing of a target or point from your boats position, you need to display a VRM/EBL and edit (move) it on- screen so that it intersects the desired target or point.
The first VRM/EBL will be placed at a location 1/3 of the current range and 0300 relative to your boats head. If this setting is adjusted, the display will retain the adjustments and use them when the VRM/EBL is next turned on.
To use a VRM/EBL to tell you how far away a target is and in what direction it is traveling: 1. Click the VRM/EBL soft key. The soft key options for VRM/EBL 1 will be displayed. 2. Click the VRM/EBL 1 soft key to ON. The VRM/EBL will be shown on the radar picture with your boat at its center. 3. Click the Adjust VRM 1 soft key. The on-screen VRM will change from a dotted to a solid line. 4. Use the cursor to adjust the VRM to its required size. 5. Click to return the VRM to a dotted line and retain the adjustment. 6. Click the Adjust EBL 1 soft key. The on-screen EBL will change from a dotted to a solid line. 7. Use the cursor to place the EBL over the required target.
Chapter 10: Working with radar 8. Click to return the EBL to a dotted line and retain the adjustment.
83 Guard zones enable you to set up one or two sector or 360o zones around your boat. Any target entering this zoned area will cause a guard alarm to sound. Guard zones are fixed with respect to the ships heading marker (SHM, moving as the SHM moves. They also move if you offset the center, or if you change the range scale, so that the area you have marked is maintained. However, a guard zone only operates when the whole zone is displayed on the screen, or could be displayed by off-setting the center. In addition, a guard zone is inactive for 10 seconds after it is placed or resized, to avoid inappropriate alarms during positioning.

Graphing and reading a polar plot
The polar plot screen graphs the theoretical headings your boat should take towards specified targets (both upwind and down wind) when encountering various wind conditions. The accuracy of these graphs depends primarily on the volume and accuracy of the boat and weather specific information that you have entered into the polar parameters and data test screens. Information that has been entered will be displayed as a polar graph in the polar plot screen. Placing the cursor in any position along the polar plot opens a small pop-up pane that displays the wind angle/boat speed correlation at that point.
To graph a polar plot: 1. Enter all the requisite detail into the polar parameters and data test screens as described in the previous sections. 2. Click Polar tab. The Polar Plot screen is displayed. 3. Select the required boat speed scale by clicking on the up/down arrows, or entering the numbers direct. 4. Select the range of True Wind Speed to be plotted by clicking on the up/down arrows, or entering the numbers direct.
RayTech RNS V6.0 - Users Guide entered in the polar parameters screen. These lines are displayed in blue. The lines that diverge between 30o and 50o, and 130o and 160o, represent the Target Twa upwind (5) and downwind (6). These lines are displayed in blue. The line that scribes a semi-circle, plots the optimum heading (7) and resultant speed relative to the Tws range you enter at the bottom of the screen. As the Tws range is increased, additional lines are plotted onto the graph, showing the heading you should take to make optimum progress as wind speed increases. These lines are displayed in black. The co-ordinate pop-up (8) shows the current boat speed and heading, as entered into the data test screen.
Upwind, downwind and Vmc plot screens
The upwind, downwind and Velocity Made good on Course (Vmc) screens enable you to directly analyze those aspects of the polar plot by reducing the displayed information to only those elements. Upwind plot The upwind plot screen calculates the best angle and boat speed when sailing upwind and displays: Velocity Made Good (VMG) relative to Twa. Click Vmg to view, then select Tws range to plot by clicking on the Tws (kts)) up/down arrows or entering the numbers direct. Boat speed relative to Tws. Click Bsp to view. True wind angle relative to Tws. Click Twa to view.
Identifying false echo returns
Not all echoes are direct reTurns to the radar antenna. Occasionally signals appear at positions where there is no actual target. These are called false echoes, and may be caused by side lobes, ghost images, indirect echoes or multiple echoes. This section briefly describes the echo patterns that can be produced by false echoes and the likely cause. It should be noted that the radar operator, through observation, practice, and experience, can generally detect these conditions very quickly. These effects can usually be minimized using the radar controls.
Side lobes Indirect echoes
There are several types of indirect echoes or ghost images. These sometimes have the appearance of true echoes, but in general they are intermittent and poorly defined.
True echo True echo
Arc True echo Side echoes
Mast or funnel
Multiple echoes are not very common but can occur if there is a large target with a wide vertical surface at a comparatively short range. The transmitted signal will be reflected back and forth between the target and your own boat, resulting in multiple echoes, displayed beyond the range of the true target echo, but on the same bearing.
Side lobe patterns are produced by small amounts of energy from the transmitted pulses that are radiated outside the narrow main beam. The effects of side lobes are most noticeable with targets at short ranges (normally below 3nm), and in particular with larger objects. Side lobe echoes form either arcs on the radar screen similar to range rings, or a series of echoes forming a broken arc.
Blind sectors or shadow effect
Obstructions such as funnels and masts near the radar antenna may obstruct the radar beam and cause radar shadows or blind sectors. If the obstruction is relatively narrow, there will be a reduction of the beam intensity, though not necessarily a complete cut-off. However, for wider obstructions there may be a total loss of signal in the shadow area. There may also be multiple echoes which extend beyond the obstruction. Blind sector effects can normally be minimized by careful selection of the scanner site prior to installation.
