I had the same issue. Trouble shooting with Raymarine, they determined it was the hub that everything communicates through. Then certain cables. It was a nightmare trying to get it right. Seemed like every time I got one thing communicating, the other didn't. Became unreliable, so ended up replacing with Garmin 7610 and 18" xHD Radar. Very pleased. My autopilot, VHF and Smartcraft communicate with it and it is soooo user friendly. I was planning on upgrading eventually when we purchased 2 seasons ago, just this soon. Pricey but sweet. Does exactly what it is supposed to with no issues and only a fraction of the connections.
I just closed today on a 400 Sedan Bridge so I will be selling the 340. Thanks to everyone for the help and guidance over the last two years. My boat is definitely much improved because of the information found in this thread.
Besides using a magnet to test manifolds is there a way to know whether I have Aluminum or steel? I believe there steel but just curious since I am not nearby to look at.
Mark - I may not be good at C80's vs RL80's, but I recall by 2006 Mercruiser had gone back to cast iron. My '05 340 was an early '05 and it originally had aluminum...
Looking to do the same project, can you give me a round about budget?
Need some help with replacement LED bulbs, earlier in the thread users recommended G4B-WWHP10-DAC Warm White for the small disk overhead lights throughout the cabin and bathroom, its discontinued anyone have a updated part number?
The round lights are G4 Disc with rear pins. Color would be "warm" light to match current. They are available from several vendors including on eBay and Amazon.
I did the Garmin 7610, in hull sounder, 18" xHD Radar. Installed it was 5 Grand. Probably took 50 pounds of wires and cables out when removing the old system.
Also take a look at the new Raymarine Axiom series. I was originally planning on going over to Simrad but the release of the Axiom earlier this year made me take a second look. I am probably going to replace a Raymarine and Garmin unit and combine into a networked Axiom pair along with the Quantum radar.
Thanks Guys, working being done tomorrow went with the Axiom 9, Q24W 18" Dome. Raymarine is offering $500 rebates for both units through December. I will send a pic when complete.
That was my plan plus a 7" behind the wheel. What did you do for the Sonar part - I am still trying to figure out my plans for that?
I will work that out when a haul her, haven't thought about that yet either
It's my old radar that is my primary reason for upgrading. I have a separate Garmin GPSMAP that has the transducer hooked up and works well. I have not decided which direction to go but want to figure it out so that I can deal with while the boat is hauled.
I really want the two units networked and tie in smartcraft data via a N2K gateway.
Go to boat for yesterday and spot light does not work. Will not turn and Light does not come on. If there are fuses can someone tell me where they are located? Other suggestions welcome too. Thx
@TFarber: Looks great! Now I can't wait to replace my old Raymarine.
Thanks, I'm glad I found that rebate program saved a grand.
