Megan,

I had a similar problem with mine - thought it had breathed its last - but what it needed was a damn good charging up by the sun. Apparently, even though you'd think sailing gives them enough sun-hours, dependent on the location in the boat, shadow of sails, etc, they run out of charge. Before any money changes hands, sit the thing in direct sunlight (as I type this in soggy Devon, I smile wryly) for at least one whole day and see if it comes back to life; mine did. If it doesn't, I've just typed a load of rubbish and I apologise for getting your hopes up!

The thought. Poke in the eye with a blunt stick. Came to mind when I phoned raymarine

Chers

Man up and just buy a new one! If you can afford to race a Merlin Rocket you can afford a new one.

Nothing wrong with a bit of fiscal control.  I am Scottish
