On our new boat, we have a little problem with the B&G FFDs. We have two FFDs in the cockpit, and two on the mast.
I want to set up permanent pages on the FFDs, so when the system is turned off and back on, I have all the data where I want it.
On the cockpit FFDs this works fine, I can set up the permanent pages as in the manual and these pages are always shown when the system is turned off and on again.
On the mast displays, it does not work. I have tried multiple times setting up the permanent pages. But every time the system is powered off and back on, both mast FFDs show speed in the upper line and depth in the lower line, but not the wind data I want them to show.
I'm a bit puzzled by this, as the system does not show any other problems. Any ideas on how to fix this?
The manual says (and that's what I've tried):
"2.3.2 Page Display Configuration
The Page Key allows the user to configure four pages per FFD depending on the required use at that position. To store the setting in Paragraph 2.3.1 as a permanent new page, proceed as follows:
(1) Press Scroll Up or Scroll Down and scroll text to CNFG DSP.
Scroll Up or Scroll Down can be used because we are configuring the whole page, both upper and lower displays.
(2) Press Enter, PAGE is shown in the appropriate display.
(3) Press Enter, the digital display is blanked and the two functions selected are displayed in the text.
At this point, either of the two functions may be changed if required using the Scroll Up or Scroll Down Keys.
(4) Press Enter to accept the new page configuration and restore the digital display.
You will be able to set up each FFD on the boat for the people in the immediate vicinity, each crew member being able to develop their own pages for the information that is most needed on the
FFD. All page displays are held in the display memory, independent of the power supply.
