  1. Congratulations, it’s great when you can conquer the electronics and then win the race. Win/win!
  2. Excellent, good to know it worked.
  3. It sounds like you have a good handle on it. Best of luck.
  4. Sorry guys, I noted the wrong file format. It should be .GPX file not .GFX file I corrected it here. This becomes more complicated. Maybe someone else has a better method or perhaps you might just enter the 50 waypoints by hand. Anyway, if you decide to do this, one way is to create a .GPX file, which contains the waypoint information and then import the file into the plotter, if the Zeus allows importing files. First check if the plotter allows importing files. From the Home Screen, on the left border , click on Files(or Storage). Click Waypoints, Routes, Tracks

There will be an Export option which is used to backup the waypoints, routes and tracks to a memory card. If
  6. Here is the Zeus 3s manual https://softwaredownloads.navico.com/Lowrance/FTP/Lowrance_Software - Copy/BG_Documents/Zeus3s/Zeus3S-OM_EN_988-12586-001_w.pdf See pg. 45-47 Go to Settings/Navigation/ Coord system Set the coordinates to the system used in the club yearbook and enter the new waypoints. Then go back to Settings and reset the Coordinate system to whatever you desire.
  7. The wiring from the chartplotter(GPS) to the VHF looks good. Have you changed the NMEA data input on the new VHF to 4800 baud? The Raynav probably doesn’t support DSC. You could disconnect the wiring from the VHF to the chartplotter as I think that is to send DSC information to the chartplotter. Good luck
  8. Here is a cheat sheet for anyone who may be dealing with a Zeus 3 plotter for the first time. Sorry about the formatting, it was a cut and paste. B&G Zeus3 MFD January 2020 Settings- Depending on the settings, changes may only show on the MFD that they are changed on. Other MFD’s may need to have the settings changed individually. To open Settings- from Home screen, press wheel icon on the UL corner of screen. To open Home screen, press hard or soft button that shows 3x3 squares icon. Rotate the dial on UR to change selection, use selector knob below to move
  9. Ha, They change the definitions just to make our lives more interesting. Glad I could help.
  10. Ajax, not sure if you have tried this. Under Settings/Chart / Course Highway-check the box- to show a line to the waypoint. This might solve your problem.
