Software History



Release Date

v5.16/FEL July 2012
  • Improved AIS performance including increase of Class B AIS target time-out period to prevent the MFD unnecessarily dropping AIS targets and providing correct TCPA calculation of both stationary and active AIS targets.
v5.04 Aug 2010


  • Chart orientation will default to using Heading data (if available) when using the vessel offset feature
  • Cartography / chart data now available at latitudes higher than 78 degrees latitude
  • Current arrows direction correctly displayed when using Head-Up mode
  • Modified card sequencing to prevent display resets when using the Navionics 44XG / 46XG cartography


  • Displays output speed as -.-- with no speed transducer connected to DSM unit


  • Ground Trip/Log no longer increases when the vessel is stationary
  • Corrected under reading Ground Trip calculation


  • Corrected momentary 180 degree radar image shift
  • Disabled radar overlay feature for MFDs which have not been interfaced to a heading data source (ex. autopilot, Smart Heading System, ST60 Compass, etc.). Previous C-Series Classic MFD software releases permitted radar overlay when interfaced to a COG (vessel had to have a SOG of at least 2 kts) or heading data source.

Automatic Identification Systems (AIS)

  • Corrected AIS TCPA calculation
  • Improved processing of target data in areas with 100+ AIS targets
  • Added alarm to monitor PSRT sentence generated from AIS500
  • Default AIS target status set to NOT_DEFINED

SIRIUS Marine Weather (not available in v5.04 FEL)

  • Increased memory buffer to improve SR50 module connectivity
  • Marine Zone forecast areas updated


  • Added support for 16GB CF devices

v2.14 March 2005
  • Range scale shown to 3 decimal place 
  • Support added for 3m / 6m depth contours
